Thought for the day…

Daily Catholic Wisdom
Sinners have a spiritual vision that Pharisees do not have. They look at Christ, and their humility allows them to perceive in him their only hope of salvation. The Pharisee sees merely the man, whereas the lost sheep sees the Good Shepherd!

Introduction (with Invitatory)

If this is not the first Hour that you are reciting today, use the version without the Invitatory Psalm instead.

Lord, open my lips.

And my mouth will proclaim your praise.

Invitatory Psalm

Psalm 94 (95)

“Every day, as long as this ‘today’ lasts, keep encouraging one another” (Heb 3:13).

Come, let us worship Christ, the King of martyrs.

Come, let us sing to the Lord

and shout with joy to the Rock who saves us.

Let us approach him with praise and thanksgiving

and sing joyful songs to the Lord.

The Lord is God, the mighty God,

the great king over all the gods.

He holds in his hand the depths of the earth

and the highest mountains as well.

He made the sea; it belongs to him,

the dry land, too, for it was formed by his hands.

Come, then, let us bow down and worship,

bending the knee before the Lord, our maker.

For he is our God and we are his people,

the flock he shepherds.

Today, listen to the voice of the Lord:

Do not grow stubborn, as your fathers did

in the wilderness,

when at Meriba and Massah

they challenged me and provoked me,

although they had seen all of my works.

Forty years I endured that generation.

I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray

and they do not know my ways.”

So I swore in my anger,

“They shall not enter into my rest.”

Glory to the Father and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now,

and will be for ever. Amen.

Hymn

The martyrs living now with Christ

In suffering were tried,

Their anguish overcome by love

When on his cross they died.

Across the centuries they come,

In constancy unmoved,

Their loving hearts make no complaint,

In silence they are proved.

No man has ever measured love,

Or weighed it in his hand,

But God who knows the inmost heart

Gives them the promised land.

Praise Father, Son and Spirit blest,

Who guides us through the night

In ways that reach beyond the stars

To everlasting light.

Francis E. Mostyn (1860-1939)

Psalm 6

A prayer for relief from affliction

“Now my spirit is disturbed; Father, save me from this hour” (Jn 12:27).

Lord, save me in your merciful love.

Lord, do not reprove me in your anger;

punish me not in your rage.

Have mercy on me, Lord, I have no strength;

Lord, heal me, my body is racked;

my soul is racked with pain.

But you, O Lord… how long?

Return, Lord, rescue my soul.

Save me in your merciful love;

for in death no one remembers you;

from the grave, who can give you praise?

I am exhausted with my groaning;

every night I drench my pillow with tears;

I bedew my bed with weeping.

My eye wastes away with grief;

I have grown old surrounded by my foes.

Leave me, all you who do evil;

for the Lord has heard my weeping.

The Lord has heard my plea;

The Lord will accept my prayer.

All my foes will retire in confusion,

foiled and suddenly confounded.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now,

and will be for ever. Amen.

Lord, save me in your merciful love.

Psalm-prayer

Lord God, you love mercy and tenderness; you give life and overcome death. Look upon the many wounds of your Church; restore her to health by your risen Son, so that she may sing a new song in your praise.

Psalm 9A (9):2-11

Thanksgiving for victory

“He will come again to judge the living and the dead.”

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed in times of distress.

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;

I will recount all your wonders.

I will rejoice in you and be glad,

and sing psalms to your name, O Most High.

See how my enemies turn back,

how they stumble and perish before you.

You upheld the justice of my cause;

you sat enthroned, judging with justice.

You have checked the nations, destroyed the wicked;

you have wiped out their name for ever and ever.

The foe is destroyed, eternally ruined.

You uprooted their cities; their memory has perished.

But the Lord sits enthroned for ever.

He has set up his throne for judgement;

he will judge the world with justice,

he will judge the peoples with his truth.

For the oppressed let the Lord be a stronghold,

a stronghold in times of distress.

Those who know your name will trust you;

you will never forsake those who seek you.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now,

and will be for ever. Amen.

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed in times of distress.

Psalm 9A (9):12-21

I will recount all your praise at the gates of the city of Sion.

Sing psalms to the Lord who dwells in Sion.

Proclaim his mighty works among the peoples,

for the Avenger of blood has remembered them,

has not forgotten the cry of the poor.

Have pity on me, Lord, see my sufferings,

you who save me from the gates of death;

that I may recount all your praise

at the gates of the city of Sion

and rejoice in your saving help.

The nations have fallen in the pit which they made,

their feet caught in the snare they laid.

The Lord has revealed himself, and given judgement.

The wicked are snared in the work of their own hands.

Let the wicked go down among the dead,

all the nations forgetful of God;

for the needy shall not always be forgotten

nor the hopes of the poor be in vain.

Arise, Lord, let men not prevail!

Let the nations be judged before you.

Lord, strike them with terror,

let the nations know they are but men.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now,

and will be for ever. Amen.

I will recount all your praise at the gates of the city of Sion.

Psalm-prayer

Lord God, when you judge, do not be deaf to the shouts of the poor; bring havoc to the madness of oppressors. Look at our wounds and save us from the gates of death, so that we may always rejoice in your help and speak your praise in the gates of Zion.

℣. Our soul is waiting for the Lord.

℟. The Lord is our help and our shield.

Readings (official one-year cycle)

First Reading

Ezekiel 34:1-6,11-16,23-31

Israel, the Lord’s flock

The word of the Lord was addressed to me as follows: Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them:

Shepherds, the Lord says this: Trouble for the shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Shepherds ought to feed their flock, yet you have fed on milk, you have dressed yourselves in wool, you have sacrificed the fattest sheep, but failed to feed the flock. You have failed to make weak sheep strong, or to care for the sick ones, or bandage the wounded ones. You have failed to bring back strays or look for the lost. On the contrary, you have ruled them cruelly and violently. For lack of a shepherd they have scattered, to become the prey of any wild animal; they have scattered far. My flock is straying this way and that, on mountains and on high hills; my flock has been scattered all over the country; no one bothers about them and no one looks for them.

For the Lord says this: I am going to look after my flock myself and keep all of it in view. As a shepherd keeps all his flock in view when he stands up in the middle of his scattered sheep, so shall I keep my sheep in view. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered during the mist and darkness. I shall bring them out of the countries where they are; I shall gather them together from foreign countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in every inhabited place in the land. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the high mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing ground; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself will pasture my sheep, I myself will show them where to rest – it is the Lord who speaks. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the wounded and make the weak strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them.

I mean to raise up one shepherd, my servant David, and to put him in charge of them and he will pasture them; he will pasture them and be their shepherd. I, the Lord, will be their God, and my servant David shall be their ruler. I, the Lord, have spoken. I shall make a covenant of peace with them; I shall rid the country of wild animals. They will be able to live safely in the wilderness and go to sleep in the woods. I shall settle them round my hill; I shall send rain at the proper time; it will be a fertile rain. The trees of the countryside will yield their fruit and the earth its produce; they will feel safe on their own farms. And men will learn that I am the Lord when I break their yoke-straps and release them from their captors. No more will they be a prey to foreign countries, no more will they be eaten by wild animals in this country. They will live without fear and no one will disturb them again. I shall make splendid vegetation grow for them; no more will they suffer from famine in this land; no more will they have to bear the insults of other nations. And men will learn that I, their God, am with them and that they, the House of Israel, are my people – it is the Lord who speaks. And you, my sheep, are the flock I shall pasture, and I am your God – it is the Lord who speaks.

Responsory

Ez 34:12-14; Jn 10:10

℟. I shall rescue my sheep from wherever they have been scattered during mist and darkness, and bring them back to their own land.* I shall feed them in good pastures.

℣. I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly.* I shall feed them in good pastures.

Second Reading

From the final exhortation of Saint Andrew Kim Taegŏn, priest and martyr

Faith is crowned by love and perseverance

My brethren and dear friends, think about this and reflect on it: from the beginning of time God has ordered the heavens, the earth, and all things. Consider the creation of man in this light and reflect on why he has created man, each man, in his image and likeness: why, and with what purpose.

If, then, placed as we are in this world full of danger and misery, we do not know the Lord our creator, what is the point in having been born? Our life is pointless. Thanks to God, we have come into this world. Also thanks to God, we have received baptism, we have entered the Church, and we have received the glorious name of disciples of the Lord. But what use would that name be if it did not correspond to reality? If it does not, then it is in vain that we have come into the world and entered into the Church. Moreover, such a state of affairs would not serve the Lord and his grace. It would be better for us never to have been born than to receive the grace of the Lord and then sin against him.

Look at the farmer sowing his field. He ploughs the earth at the appropriate time, then he manures it, and he cultivates the growing seed without caring how hard his work is under a hot sun. When harvest time arrives, if the ears are fat then he forgets his labour and his sweat because his heart is full of joy and he delights in the harvest. But if the grains are shrivelled and there is nothing but straw and empty husks, then the farmer remembers his sweat and heavy labour: the more he has worked the field, the more he turns his back on it.

It is the same with the Lord. The Earth is his field; we men are his seed; his manure is grace. By the Incarnation and the Redemption he waters us with his blood so that we can grow and ripen. When the time for harvest comes at the Day of Judgement, if by his grace we are found to be ripe, we shall know the joy of the kingdom as the adoptive children of God. But if we are found to be unripe, we shall have become enemies of God instead of the adoptive sons we were, and we shall receive the eternal punishment we deserve.

My very dear brethren, know this: our Lord Jesus, coming down here, himself suffered pains beyond counting: by his Passion he founded the Church and by the passion of his faithful he makes it grow. The powers of this world may well oppress it and attack it, but they will never have victory over it. After the Ascension of Jesus, from the time of the Apostles until now, the holy Church has grown everywhere in the middle of persecution.

It is fifty or sixty years now since the holy Church entered our land of Korea. The faithful have endured persecution over and over again. Today it is beginning once more: many of our friends in faith, and I myself, are in prison. You too are under threat. Since we form one body, how can we not have sad hearts? How can we not, as human beings, feel the pain of separation?

All the same, as Scripture tells us, God takes care of the least of the hairs of our head and nothing escapes his infinite knowledge. How then can we see this persecution except as something ordered by the Lord either as a prize or as a punishment? Follow therefore the will of God, fight with all your heart for our divine leader Jesus, and you will vanquish the demon of this world, who has already been vanquished by Christ.

I implore you: do not forget fraternal love but help one another and persevere until the Lord takes pity on us and ends this persecution.

There are twenty of us here and, thank God, all is well with us so far. If one of us is put to death I beg you not to forget his family.

There are many other things I could say to you, but how to say them all in a letter? So I will end here. As for us, in a short time we will go into combat. I beg you to keep yourselves faithful so that we can all be reunited in the joys of heaven. With all my heart, I embrace you.

Responsory

℟. God looks on, his angels look on, Christ, too, looks on as we struggle and strive in the contest of faith.* What great dignity and glory are ours, what happiness to join battle in the presence of God, and to be crowned by Christ, the Judge!

℣. Let us be armed with a great determination and be prepared to face the combat, pure in heart, sound in faith, and full of courage.* What great dignity and glory are ours, what happiness to join battle in the presence of God, and to be crowned by Christ, the Judge!

Let us pray.

O God, you have created all nations and you are their salvation.

In the land of Korea your call to Catholic faith formed a people of adoption,

whose growth you nurtured by the blood of Andrew, Paul and their companions.

Through their martyrdom and their intercession

grant us strength

that we too may remain faithful to your commandments even until death.

We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Let us bless the Lord.

– Thanks be to God.

Mark Mallett

JUST SING A LITTLE LOUDER

Posted on  by Mark

THERE was a German Christian man who lived near the railroad tracks at the time of World War II. When the train whistle blew, they knew what would shortly follow: the cries of Jews packed into cattle cars.

It was so terribly disturbing! We could do nothing to help these poor miserable people, yet their screams tormented us. We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow, and we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. By the time that train came rumbling past the church yard, we were singing at the top of our voices. If some of the screams reached our ears, we’d just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more. Years have passed and no one talks about it much anymore, but I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene. repentamerica.com/singalittlelouder.html

At this hour, another tragedy is unfolding in our midst, replete with segregation, vilification, and yes, casualties. As I write this, my own province of Saskatchewan (and Alberta next door) has announced that the “unvaccinated” are to be banned from “non-essential” services. The same is happening in other countries around the world. Not only are the majority of people silently accepting this medical apartheid, but some have also taken to social media to applaud these restrictions, blaming the “unvaccinated” for the supposed crisis. Why this is not only a grotesque injustice but a patently false allegation is for three reasons:

I. NOT A VACCINE

The mRNA injections that the media and government officials repeatedly call “vaccines” are actually “gene therapies,” according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[1] This new technology does not, nor was it designed to, stop transmission of the virus but only reduce the symptoms through an antibody response. 

The studies [on the mRNA inoculations] aren’t designed to assess transmission. They don’t ask that question, and there’s really no information on this at this point in time. —Dr. Larry Corey oversees the National Institutes of Health (NIH) COVID-19 “vaccine” trials; November 20th, 2020; medscape.com; cf. primarydoctor.org/covidvaccine

They were tested with an outcome of severe disease — not preventing infection. —U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, Good Morning America, December 14th, 2020; dailymail.co.uk

It appears that these trials are intended to pass the lowest possible barrier of success. —Harvard Professor William A. Haseltine, September 23rd, 2020; forbes.com

Therefore, to not only force people to be injected with these experimental gene therapies but to segregate them in society under the pretense of building “herd immunity” is a flat-out lie. In fact, it is now the “vaccinated” who are driving the viral spread in many places, according to the most recent data…

II. THE “VACCINATED” ARE SPREADING THE VIRUS

After nine months of injections, the data rolling in supports what was already predictable: the “vaccinated” are continuing to spread the virus.[2] A CDC study shows 74% of people infected in a Massachusetts COVID outbreak were fully vaccinated.[3] “Evidence mounts that people with breakthrough infections can spread Delta easily,” stated National Geographic.[4] In Israel, which claims vaccination rates of over 62% of the populace — the highest rate in the world — it is being reported by Dr. Kobi Haviv, the medical director of Herzog hospital, the third largest in Israel, that “95% of the severe patients are vaccinated” and that “85-90% of the hospitalizations are in fully vaccinated people.”[5] Health Ministry data shows “Israelis who were vaccinated were 6.72 times more likely to get infected after the shot than after natural infection.”[6] In the U.K., the death rate is 6.6 times higher among the vaccinated,[7] according to a new report, suggesting that the injections are ruining recipient’s immune systems, as has been warned by many virologists and immunologists.[8] A preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, published August 10th, 2021 in The Lancet, “found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated” of the pre-vaccination era of 2020.[9] A study posted by the CDC claimed that jabbed individuals carry at least the same viral load when symptomatic as unvaccinated individuals — further highlighting the discriminatory segregation of the “unvaccinated”.[10] Science magazine reports a study that found “the risk of developing symptomatic COVID-19 was 27 times higher among the vaccinated, and the risk of hospitalization eight times higher.”[11] The study also found that, while vaccinated persons who also had natural infection did appear to have additional protection against the Delta variant, the vaccinated were still at a greater risk for COVID-19-related-hospitalizations compared to those without the vaccine, but who were previously infected. Vaccinees who hadn’t had a natural infection also had a 5.96-fold increased risk for breakthrough infection and a 7.13-fold increased risk for symptomatic disease.[12]

Therefore, to segregate healthy individuals who have refused the injections for a number of valid reasons, including the fact that death is one of the adverse reactions being reported in alarming numbers,[13] has no basis in common sense, much less science. That — and an actual cure to COVID-19 is continuing to be ignored, which is criminal, since it would end not only the pandemic but the obsessive drive to vaccinate the entire world, which is absolutely unprecedented.[14] 

III. NATURAL IMMUNITY IS MOST DURABLE

In fact, the science is utterly upside-down at this point. It is actually natural immunity that is the most durable and lasting, and always has been from the beginning of time. The reason that governments are now beginning to treat healthy “unvaccinated” people as second-class citizens is based on an astonishing sleight-of-hand by the World Health Organization (WHO). The definition of “herd immunity” has always been understood to mean that “a greater portion of the population has built immunity against a certain contagion, either through natural prior infection or through vaccination.”[15] However, the WHO quietly but significantly changed that definition last Fall:

‘Herd immunity’, also known as ‘population immunity’, is a concept used for vaccination, in which a population can be protected from a certain virus if a threshold of vaccination is reached. Herd immunity is achieved by protecting people from a virus, not by exposing them to it. —October 15th, 2020; who.int

Now, only vaccines and not naturally acquired immunity can apparently achieve “herd immunity”. This is flagrantly anti-science — and the implications are astounding. It means that henceforth, the entire globe must line up to be injected for this, or future diseases, whenever the government tells us to — virtually turning the willing populace into vaccine junkies. No wonder Bill Gates is practically giddy in his televised interviews.[16] 

On the contrary, Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH, one of the most cited doctors in the National Library of Medicine, stated before a Senate Committee Hearing in Texas: 

You can’t beat natural immunity. You can’t vaccinate on top of it and make it better. —Dr. Peter McCullough, March 10th, 2021; cf. documentary Following the Science?

MIT’s Technology Review reported a study showing that “COVID-19 patients who recovered from the disease still have robust immunity from the coronavirus eight months after infection”,[17] and Nature published a study in late May 2021 showing that “People who recover from mild COVID-19 have bone-marrow cells that can churn out antibodies for decades.”[18]

For some reason, people are in denial of the fact that actually, at the moment, one of the reasons we’re enjoying the situation we currently have, is because there has been a substantial build up of “herd immunity.” —Dr. Sunetra Gupta, Oxford epidemiologist in Following the Science?

Dr. Mike Yeadon, former Vice President of Pfizer, no less, stated: 

Once you’ve been infected, you’re immune. There’s no uncertainty about it. It’s been studied hundreds of times now, lots of literature has been published. So, once you’ve been infected, often you’ll have no symptoms, you’ll probably be immune for decades. Dr. Mike Yeadon, cf. 34:05, Following the Science?

Harvard Professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff, Ph.D. states:

What we know is that if you have had COVID, you have very good immunity — not only for the same variant, but also for other variants. And even for other types, cross-immunity, for other types of coronaviruses.—Dr. Martin Kulldorff, August 10th, 2021, Epoch Times

And researchers at New York University concluded that while both SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination elicit potent immune responses, the immunity you get when you’ve recovered from natural infection is more durable and quicker to respond. The reason is because natural immunity conveys more innate immunity involving T cells and antibodies, whereas [mRNA] vaccine-induced immunity primarily stimulates adaptive immunity involving antibodies.[19] Worse, the COVID injections continue to dramatically wane in any effectiveness,[20] signalling endless booster shots.[21] Regarding that other study of the vaccinated mentioned above, the authors stated that “This study demonstrated that natural immunity confers longer-lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity.”[22] Make no mistake: the facts you just read are not only being largely ignored by the mainstream media (or outright dismissed by anonymous so-called “fact-checkers”), but many people simply don’t want to hear them. They don’t want to contradict the narrative, be subject to potential ridicule, or be considered a “conspiracy theorist.” They don’t want to appear as though they are selfish, not a team player, not “part of the solution.” And so, they just sing a little louder.   IT’S NOT GOING TO BE PRETTY 

We are seeing now why Our Lord and Our Lady have warned for decades that the times coming would shake the faith of many to the point that the Church would be reduced to a mere remnant, and that there would be tremendous division. 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… —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 675-676 (see Millenarianism – What it is and is Not)What is this “religious deception”? Is it not, at least in part, The Religion of Scientism — the unquestioning obedience the entire planet must have now to not only baseless “health” measures[23] but to line up for mandatory injections of unknown substances with unknown long-term effects that manipulate one’s genes? It is as though the “vaccine” is now an “eighth sacrament”. Yet, people are doing it — by the hundreds of millions! And clearly, this new religion has torn apart families, as many of you already know. From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three; a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. (Luke 12:52-53)

Is it “love” pushing this or fear? Is it love to exclude your healthy neighbour because you live in terror? Is it love to turn a blind eye to the vaccine-injured and those who have died because you want to return to your lifestyle? Is it love to call those genuinely concerned for other’s welfare “conspiracy theorists” and “anti-vaxxers”? Is it love to throw people out of grocery stores and force them to go hungry because they refuse to become part of this mass experiment?[24] Is it love to suspend, without pay, those such as in Italy, who decline forced injection?[25] Is it love to segregate and vilify healthy people already immune to this virus? Because love, true love, would never trample upon another’s authentic freedom:Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17)It is not the Spirit of the Lord passing over the world in this pandemic but the spirit of control,[26] a spirit of fear,[27] a spirit of division.[28]You will know a tree by its fruit, Jesus said.[29] In my own province of Saskatchewan, the government has enacted emergency powers that enable them “to cause the evacuation of persons and the removal of persons or livestock and personal property from any area of Saskatchewan… [and] authorize the entry into any building or on any land, without warrant, by any person in the course of implementing an emergency plan.”[30] If governments are already completely departing from established science on lockdowns, PCR tests, masking, social distancing, and vaccination,[31] what is stopping them from utilizing such powers, putting your healthy neighbours into what the CDC actually calls “camps”?[32] It’s coming. It’s already happening in Australia.[33]  In the past few days, we now hear of bishops forcing their priests and deacons to confess that they are unvaccinated “so people can decide if they want to go to their Masses.” Moreover, these priests are no longer permitted to bring the sacraments to the sick.[34] Stop and think about that: perfectly healthy priests being barred from administering the soul-saving graces of the sacraments because their natural immunity is no longer considered to be of any use. This is not only anti-science, anti-immunology, and anti-human, but anti-Christ. It is an affront to the Creator who has given man a most effective gift: a powerful immunity, according even to the agnostic world-renowned immunologist Dr. Beda Stadler, Ph.D. who is so pro-vaccine, he describes himself as the “Vaccine Pope.” And yet, even he is at a loss for words as to how the world has departed en masse from actual science (hear him in Following the Science?). In fact, some bishops are even barring their flock from the sacraments without a “vaccine passport” — the new “baptismal certificate” of the New World Order. This video is appalling — or it should be to those who are not singing overtop of it.  https://www.youtube.com/embed/Hu4xbz1oWSAI had another vision of the great tribulation… It seems to me that a concession was demanded from the clergy that could not be granted. I saw many older priests, especially one, who wept bitterly. A few younger ones were also weeping… It was as if people were splitting into two camps.  —Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774–1824); The Life and Revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich; message from April 12th, 1820

Suddenly, the words of an American priest, confided to me years ago, are seemingly coming to fruition. Every night, this priest sees the souls in purgatory, but one night, St. Thérèse de Lisieux came to him saying:Just as my country [France], which was the eldest daughter of the Church, killed her priests and faithful, so will the persecution of the Church take place in your own country. In a short time, the clergy will go into exile and will be unable to enter the churches openly. They will minister to the faithful in clandestine places. The faithful will be deprived of the “kiss of Jesus” [Holy Communion]. The laity will bring Jesus to them in the absence of the priests. —April 2008, cf. Revolution!St. Thérèse is referring, of course, to the French Revolution, which was engineered by Freemasonry. That revolution was successful beyond imagination, except for one hitch:In every way but one, the French Revolution had come off as planned. There remained but one great hurdle for the Illuminati, that being the Church, for the Church — and there is only one True Church — formed the very foundation of Western civilization. —Stephen, Mahowald, She Shall Crush Thy Head, MMR Publishing Company, p. 10Thus, as you read in Francis and the Great Shipwreck, globalists are now salivating at the perfect storm for their global revolution.

A great revolution is waiting for us. The crisis doesn’t only make us free to imagine other models, another future, another world. It obliges us to do so. —Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, September 14th, 2009; unnwo.org; cf. The Guardian

This is the crisis of my lifetime. Even before the pandemic hit, I realized that we were in a revolutionary moment where what would be impossible or even inconceivable in normal times had become not only possible, but probably absolutely necessary… we must find a way to cooperate on fighting climate change and the novel coronavirus. —George Soros, May 13th, 2020; independent.co.uk.

…after all we have been through it isn’t enough just to go back to normal… Because history teaches us that events of this magnitude—wars, famines, plagues; events that affect the vast bulk of humanity, as this virus has—they do not just come and go. They are more often than not the trigger for an acceleration of social and economic change… —Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Conservative Party speech, October 6th, 2020; conservatives.com

We owe it to future generations to build back better. —Prime Minsister Boris Johnson, Many 28th, 2020; twitter.com

“Build back better”… just without the Catholic Church, at least as we know it.  

…a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society. —January 14th, 2016; weforum.org

Indeed, the goal, said Pope Leo XIII, is the “overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced.”[35] And that includes destroying the “image of God” in which man is created — the pinnacle of the Antichrist’s deception.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is literally, as they say, a transformative revolution, not just in terms of the tools that you will use to modify your environment, but for the first time in human history to modify human beings themselves. —Dr. Miklos Lukacs de Pereny, research professor of science and technology policy at Universidad San Martin de Porres in Peru; November 25th, 2020; lifesitenews.com

Where is all of this going? You will see your toll-booths turned into checkpoints. You will see military on your streets. You will see paper money vanish and a digital ID, vaccine status, and your bank accounts fused together. You will see your ability to move completely determined by the State’s decisions for your personal health. You will see humanity treated like a herd in The Great Corralling by eugenicists who believe the population of the earth is too large. [36]

And I keep hearing the words of Jesus to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta that it didn’t have to be this way…

My will wants to Triumph, and would want to Triumph by means of Love in order to Establish Its Kingdom. But man does not want to come to meet this Love, therefore, it is necessary to use Justice. —Jesus to Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta; Nov. 16th, 1926

Of course, I will be dismissed as a “fear-mongerer”, a “conspiracy theorist”, an “anti-vaxxer”, as someone who “could have done good” but who has now descended into a rabbit hole. If quoting high-level scientists and published studies is a rabbit hole, then I’m the Easter Bunny. If caring about the horrific stories of young people being paralyzed and permanently injured by these mRNA injections — stories and videos we are posting daily here — makes me a “Domestic Violent Extremist” (according to the Department of Homeland Security’s new guidelines), then I guess this post is the equivalent of a suitcase bomb.

In fact, I have had some readers say they are unsubscribing because they were hoping I would write more about the Divine Will, etc. Yes, I would love to. I would love to write about anything else. I would love to sing. I would love to lead people in praise and worship. And maybe those days are coming. But my response for now: At what point does one stop warning of what is unfolding by the hour? To use the present analogy… does one stop warning when the German soldiers are in the streets? When people are being forced onto trains? When the trains are rolling by? When there is smoke billowing from the “camps”? At what point would you like me to simply stop warning and, well, just sing a little louder?

I can’t. For sixteen years, the Lord has called me from being primarily a singer-songwriter to now writing about the times through which you are now living. And everything that the Lord had shown me years ago is now happening – including the fact that people, by and large, would simply not want to listen to what either I, or most especially, what Our Lord and Our Lady have to say.[37] In fact, some have even written to say, “Ah, I remember going to one of your concerts… but now you are off the rails, you conspiracy theorist, you.” 

Maybe I am. Maybe the long-standing science and scientists I have quoted are now totally wrong. Maybe the warnings of popes and of Our Lady’s apparitions that span over a century are just paranoia. Maybe the mainstream media and their army of anonymous “fact-checkers” truly are infallible and the high priests of Scientism have it all right – the new saviors of humanity who see your parish Mass as unwesentlich: “non-essential.” If you feel that a government can now dictate when, how, and what medical intervention you will rechenceforth… then you have found your religion. But it’s not mine. 

I hesitate to quote this, but on the day the Lord called me to this writing apostolate, this Scripture leapt from the page:

And they come to you as people come, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear what you say but they will not do it; for with their lips they show much love, but their heart is set on their gain. And lo, you are to them like one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays well on an instrument, for they hear what you say, but they will not do it. When this comes — and come it will! — then they will know that a prophet has been among them. (Ezekiel 33:31-33)

I do not claim to be a prophet. In fact, I hope I’m wrong about all of this. As a spiritual director of these writings said to me years ago, “You’re already a fool for Christ. If you’re wrong, you’ll be a fool for Christ with egg on your face.”  What I could not live with is watching another holocaust unfold… and have said and did nothing. 

God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians,
yet did nothing to intervene.

Man has reached such a point that only when he sees his own skin being touched and feels he is being destroyed, he shakes himself; while the others, as long as they remain untouched, live lightheartedly and continue their life of sin. It is necessary that death harvest in order to take away many lives which do nothing other than make thorns sprout beneath their steps; and this, in all classes — lay and religious. Ah! my daughter, these are times of patience. Do not become alarmed, and pray that everything may abound to my Glory and to the good of all… More purges are needed, and through their triumph the evil will purge my Church. Then I will crush them and scatter them, like dust in the wind. Therefore, do not be troubled at the triumphs that you hear, but cry with Me over their sad lot.  —Jesus to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, Volume 12, October 3rd, 14th, 1918

Dr. McCullough states directly that samples were compared to those “from the pre-vaccination era of 2020.” Thus, differences between these two groups aren’t a result of vaccination status alone. The authors of the Chau et al. 2021 study in their rebuttal to our piece point out another preprint (Li et al. 2021) which reported a difference in viral load of ~1000 between patients infected with the Delta variant and patients infected with A/B. However, the vaccination status of the Delta variant patients in this preprint is not reported. Thus, no one here has done a direct comparison between unvaccinated Delta patients and unvaccinated A/B patients to determine the true difference in viral load. In two additional preprint scientific publications (Riemersma et al. 2021Chia et al. 2021), comparable viral loads of the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 are reported among vaccinated and unvaccinated patients. However, this itself is an indictment of vaccine efficacy as both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals possess the ability to spread the Delta variant. Simply stated, COVID vaccines have failed to stop transmission of SARS-CoV-2.”

Our Lady of Sorrows 
on Wednesday of week 24 in Ordinary Time

Office of Readings

If this is the first Hour that you are reciting today, use the version with the Invitatory Psalm instead.

God, come to my assistance.
Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia.


Hymn

Hail, of paradise the portal!
Tree of Life regained, immortal;
Whence, through thee, all sweetness floweth,
And salvation’s fruit still groweth.
Thou our hearts aright inclinest,
On our life’s way brightly shinest;
Us from God’s just anger savest,
Who to man our Saviour gavest.

Hail! Blest shrine of God the Father,
Thither sinners haste to gather;
Pardon for their guilt obtaining,
Freedom from the foe’s enchaining;
Strength from thee the weak shall borrow,
Comfort, thou, of all who sorrow;
From the final wrath tremendous,
Mother of our Christ, defend us.

Star of ocean! Mother fairest!
Who the name of Mary bearest;
In thy bright illumination
Pales each star and constellation.
Hail, O Father! Hail, sweet Mother!
Hail, O Son of God, our Brother!
Let the hosts of heaven adore thee,
Every spirit bow before thee.


Psalm 102 (103):1-7
Praise of the compassionate Lord

“Through the tender mercy of God, the Rising Sun has come to visit us from on high” (cf. Lk 1:78).

My soul, give thanks to the Lord, and never forget all his blessings.

My soul, give thanks to the Lord
all my being, bless his holy name.
My soul, give thanks to the Lord
and never forget all his blessings.

It is he who forgives all your guilt,
who heals every one of your ills,
who redeems your life from the grave,
who crowns you with love and compassion,
who fills your life with good things,
renewing your youth like an eagle’s.

The Lord does deeds of justice,
gives judgement for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses
and his deeds to Israel’s sons.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

My soul, give thanks to the Lord, and never forget all his blessings.


Psalm 102 (103):8-16

As a father has compassion on his sons, the Lord has pity on those who fear him.

The Lord is compassion and love,
slow to anger and rich in mercy.
His wrath will come to an end;
he will not be angry for ever.
He does not treat us according to our sins
nor repay us according to our faults.

For as the heavens are high above the earth
so strong is his love for those who fear him.
As far as the east is from the west
so far does he remove our sins.

As a father has compassion on his sons,
the Lord has pity on those who fear him;
for he knows of what we are made,
he remembers that we are dust.

As for man, his days are like grass;
he flowers like the flower of the field;
the wind blows and he is gone
and his place never sees him again.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

As a father has compassion on his sons, the Lord has pity on those who fear him.


Psalm 102 (103):17-22

Give thanks to the Lord, all his works.

But the love of the Lord is everlasting
upon those who hold him in fear;
his justice reaches out to children’s children
when they keep his covenant in truth,
when they keep his will in their mind.

The Lord has set his sway in heaven
and his kingdom is ruling over all.
Give thanks to the Lord, all his angels,
mighty in power, fulfilling his word,
who heed the voice of his word.

Give thanks to the Lord, all his hosts,
his servants who do his will.
Give thanks to the Lord, all his works,
in every place where he rules.
My soul, give thanks to the Lord!

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Give thanks to the Lord, all his works.

Psalm-prayer

You have compassion for the sinner, Lord, as a father has compassion for his children. Heal the weakness of your people and save us from lasting death that we may praise and glorify you for ever.

Or:

God of kindness and Father of mercy, you remove sin and renew life through baptism. Remember that we are dust. Do not treat us as our sins deserve, but help us to keep the commands of your new covenant and praise you with the saints and angels.


℣. Mary remembered all these things.
℟. She treasured them all in her heart.


Readings (official one-year cycle)

First Reading
Ezekiel 10:18-22,11:14-25
The glory of the Lord abandons the condemned City

The glory of the Lord came out from the Temple threshold and paused over the cherubs. The cherubs spread their wings and rose from the ground to leave, and as I watched the wheels rose with them. They paused at the entrance to the east gate of the Temple of the Lord, and the glory of the God of Israel hovered over them. This was the creature that I had seen supporting the God of Israel beside the river Chebar, and I was now certain that these were cherubs. Each had four faces and four wings and what seemed to be human hands under their wings. Their faces were just as I had seen them beside the river Chebar. Each moved straight forward.
The word of the Lord was then addressed to me as follows, ‘Son of man, your brothers, your kinsmen, the whole House of Israel, these are told by the citizens of Jerusalem, “You have been sent away from the Lord; it is to us that the land was given as our domain.” Say therefore, “The Lord says this: Yes, I have sent them far away among the nations and I have dispersed them to foreign countries; and for a while I have been a sanctuary for them in the country to which they have gone.” Then say, “The Lord says this: I will gather you together from the peoples, I will bring you all back from the countries where you have been scattered and I will give you the land of Israel. They will come and will purge it of all the horrors and the filthy practices. I will give them a single heart and I will put a new spirit in them; I will remove the heart of stone from their bodies and give them a heart of flesh instead, so that they will keep my laws and respect my observances and put them into practice. Then they shall be my people and I will be their God. But those whose hearts are set on their idols and their filthy practices I will call to account for their conduct – it is the Lord who speaks.”’
The cherubs then spread their wings and the wheels began to move with them, while the glory of the God of Israel hovered over them. And the glory of the Lord rose to leave the city and paused on the mountain to the east of the city.
The spirit lifted me up in vision, in the spirit of God, and took me to the Chaldaeans, away to the exiles, and so the vision I had seen faded; and then I told the exiles everything that the Lord had shown me.

Responsory
Ezk 10:4,18; Mt 23:37-38

℟. The glory of the Lord rose to the threshold of the Temple, which was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord;* and the glory of the Lord came out from the Temple threshold.
℣. How often have I been ready to gather your children together, O Jerusalem, and you refused it! Behold, your house is left to you, a house uninhabited,* and the glory of the Lord came out from the Temple threshold.


Second Reading
From a sermon of St Bernard of Clairvaux
His mother stood by the cross

The martyrdom of the Virgin is set forth both in the prophecy of Simeon and in the actual story of our Lord’s passion. The holy old man said of the infant Jesus: He has been established as a sign which will be contradicted. He went on to say to Mary: And your own heart will be pierced by a sword.
Truly, O blessed Mother, a sword has pierced your heart. For only by passing through your heart could the sword enter the flesh of your Son. Indeed, after your Jesus – who belongs to everyone, but is especially yours – gave up his life, the cruel spear, which was not withheld from his lifeless body, tore open his side. Clearly it did not touch his soul and could not harm him, but it did pierce your heart. For surely his soul was no longer there, but yours could not be torn away. Thus the violence of sorrow has cut through your heart, and we rightly call you more than martyr, since the effect of compassion in you has gone beyond the endurance of physical suffering.
Or were those words, Woman, behold your Son, not more than a word to you, truly piercing your heart, cutting through to the division between soul and spirit? What an exchange! John is given to you in place of Jesus, the servant in place of the Lord, the disciple in place of the master; the son of Zebedee replaces the Son of God, a mere man replaces God himself. How could these words not pierce your most loving heart, when the mere remembrance of them breaks ours, hearts of iron and stone though they are!
Do not be surprised, brothers, that Mary is said to be a martyr in spirit. Let him be surprised who does not remember the words of Paul, that one of the greatest crimes of the Gentiles was that they were without love. That was far from the heart of Mary; let it be far from her servants.
Perhaps someone will say: “Had she not known before that he would not die?” Undoubtedly. “Did she not expect him to rise again at once?” Surely. “And still she grieved over her crucified Son?” Intensely. Who are you and what is the source of your wisdom that you are more surprised at the compassion of Mary than at the passion of Mary’s Son? For if he could die in body, could she not die with him in spirit? He died in body through a love greater than anyone had known. She died in spirit through a love unlike any other since his.

Responsory

℟. When they reached the place called the Skull, they crucified Jesus there,* but his mother took her stand beside his cross.
℣. As she stood there, a sword of anguish pierced her blessed heart,* but his mother took her stand beside his cross.


Let us pray.

Father,
as your Son was raised on the cross,
his mother Mary stood by him, sharing his sufferings.
May your Church be united with Christ
in his suffering and death
and so come to share in his rising to new life,
where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Amen.


Let us bless the Lord.
– Thanks be to God.

Monday of week 24 in Ordinary Time

Introduction (without Invitatory)

If this is the first Hour that you are reciting today, use the version with the Invitatory Psalm instead.

God, come to my assistance.
Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,

Set fire to others with its flame.

Most blessèd Trinity of love,

To you be praise in timeless song,
And everlasting homage paid.

Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal


PSALMS OF THE DAY

The psalms of the day are shown here, because the complementary psalms cannot be used today at this hour.


Psalm 118(119): 129-136
Meditating the word of the Lord in the Law

“Love is the Law in all its fullness” (Rom 13:10).

Let my footsteps be guided by your promise, O Lord.

Your will is wonderful indeed;
therefore I obey it.
The unfolding of your word gives light
and teaches the simple.

I open my mouth and I sigh
as I yearn for your commands.
Turn and show me your mercy;
show justice to your friends.

Let my steps be guided by your promise;
let no evil rule me.
Redeem me from man’s oppression
and I will keep your precepts.

Let your face shine on your servant
and teach me your decrees.
Tears stream from my eyes
because your law is disobeyed.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Let my footsteps be guided by your promise, O Lord.

Psalm-prayer

You are just, Lord God, and righteous are your judgements. Deliver those who cry to you in their affliction; give them peace and calm to reflect on your commands.


Psalm 81 (82)
Against unjust judges

“Let there be no premature passing of judgement; leave that until the Lord comes” (1 Cor 4:5).

There is but one judge and one ruler: who, then, are you to judge your neighbour?

God stands in the divine assembly.
In the midst of the gods he gives judgement.

‘How long will you judge unjustly
and favour the cause of the wicked?
Do justice for the weak and the orphan,
defend the afflicted and the needy.
Rescue the weak and the poor;
set them free from the hand of the wicked.

‘Unperceiving, they grope in the darkness
and the order of the world is shaken.
I have said to you: “You are gods
and all of you, sons of the Most High.”
And yet, you shall die like men,
you shall fall like any of the princes.’

Arise, O God, judge the earth,
for you rule all the nations.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

There is but one judge and one ruler: who, then, are you to judge your neighbour?

Psalm-prayer

Jesus, our Lord and our God, rise up to judge the earth. You were judged on earth in our place, and you were condemned to absolve the guilty. By your death you give life to the dead; by your resurrection you give strength to the doubtful. All who confess that you rose from the dead for our sake shall come into your inheritance.

Or:

Lord God, you examine every judgement, judge every sentence, and you do not permit brother to judge brother. Help us to hold sacred the rights of the poor and always to love them according to your example. At the end of the world, when the secrets of the heart are revealed, may we all together celebrate your justice.


Psalm 119 (120)
Longing for peace

“Show patience in times of trouble; never cease praying” (Rom 12:12).

I called and the Lord answered me.

To the Lord in the hour of my distress
I call and he answers me.
‘O Lord, save my soul from lying lips,
from the tongue of the deceitful.’

What shall he pay you in return,
O treacherous tongue?
The warrior’s arrows sharpened
and coals, red-hot, blazing.

Alas, that I abide a stranger in Meshech,
dwell among the tents of Kedar!

Long enough have I been dwelling
with those who hate peace.
I am for peace, but when I speak,
they are for fighting.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

I called and the Lord answered me.

Psalm-prayer

You declared peacemakers happy, Lord Jesus, since they will be called sons of God. Give us that peace which the world cannot give so that your Church may be freed from the schemes of arrogant men, and, devoted to works of peace, go forward joyfully to meet you, the King of Peace.


Short Reading
Leviticus 20:26

Be consecrated to me, because I, the Lord, am holy, and I will set you apart from all these peoples so that you may be mine.


℣. Blessed is the people whose God is the Lord.
℟. The people he has chosen for his own.


Let us pray.

Father, Creator of all that is good,
you have called men to work in your world,
and by their cooperation to better the condition of mankind.
Grant that we may always work together as children of your family,
and love all men as our brethren.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.


Let us bless the Lord.
– Thanks be to God.

Countdown to the Kingdom

Luz – Queen of the End Times

Our Lady to Luz de Maria de Bonilla on August 29th, 2021:

Beloved children: I bless you as the Queen and Mother of the End Times.
 
At the conclusion of the Novena that you have dedicated to me, my Heart was filled with joy at the response of my children, knowing with certainty that what they offer me I present before the Divine Will.  I have seen people who have converted, who have taken the firm decision to meet my Son again. This novena has been a heaven on earth. Only by being humble and simple of heart can you understand that, as Queen and Mother, I am grateful for gestures born of pure and simple hearts.
 
Beloved children, this generation must prepare: it needs to be catechized so that it would not be lost.  The wicked Son of Perdition is already in action: he is not sending his henchmen as in the past, but he himself is setting about extending his tentacles over confused and delirious humanity.

It is this generation that is experiencing moments of pain, when this is being fulfilled before its eyes: “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death; and you will be hated by all because of my name. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” (Mt. 10:21-22) Children, at this moment there is mistrust in homes, in workplaces, among families; this is already happening without any reason and will become more pronounced.
 
Humanity is heading towards the point where they will leave you without freedom, unable to move or think for yourselves, and humanity will consent to everything in order to subsist.
 
As Mother, I invite each of you to stay where you are settled; only those who live near the coasts should move away from the coasts.  The seas will enter the land and some of them have underwater mountains which at some point will come to the surface.
 
It is a small number of souls who are walking as Heaven has indicated. My children are being tested again and again, being given new incentives full of lies so that they would be lost. They will suffer during the European winter.
 
My beloveds, I give you:

My Heart so that you would not be afraid…
My Hands so that you will not get lost…
My Feet to guide you…
My Eyes so that you would live in forgiveness and see my Son in your brothers and sisters…
My Tongue so that you would pray and plead for conversion….

Pray the Holy Rosary without ceasing, tirelessly do good. It is necessary for you to consecrate yourselves to My Heart so that It would intercede for you. It is urgent that you consecrate yourselves to My Heart: do not wait. Prepare consecrations for the month of September, before the month dedicated to the Holy Rosary: this is necessary for the good of your souls.*

Pay attention: you are losing the Faith and this leads you to fall prey to the Devil. Be simple and humble of heart so that I can help you. This is not the time to interest yourselves in matters other than growing in the spirit. Pray the Holy Rosary: it is the prayer that the Devil does not like hearing, and you keep him away by praying if you are in a state of Grace.
 
I bless all of you who read this call of mine and bring it to life.
 
Mother Mary

Hail Mary most pure, conceived without sin
Hail Mary most pure, conceived without sin
Hail Mary most pure, conceived without sin

Commentary of Luz de Maria

Brothers and sisters: Our Queen and Mother expressed to me the need for all of us to be at peace with God.  She led me to see millions of human beings praying the Holy Rosary and said to me: “Look how many children of My Son are praying”. I answered her: yes, Mother, this is how it is. Then She said to me: “Look carefully.” And when they were praying the Holy Rosary I saw how most of those who were praying withdrew from the prayer and few remained. And our Mother said to me:
 
“This is how My Son’s People are: they are not convinced and converted, which is why the affairs of the Father’s House weary them.”
 
Our Mother said to me: “Look at the infernal dragon.”
 
And I saw a relatively young man, well dressed, who was passing by holy places, and even in those places those who saw him made a gesture of respect to him. I asked our Mother: “Who is that man?” and she said to me: “The Son of Perdition. He is afraid of me, therefore, invoke the Precious Blood of my Divine Son and invoke me with “Hail Mary, conceived without sin…”
 
And our Blessed Mother blessed all humanity, blessing the Earth. Amen.

FRANCIS AND THE GREAT SHIPWRECK

Posted on  by Mark

…the true friends are not those who flatter the Pope,
but those who help him with the truth
and with theological and human competence. 
—Cardinal Müller, Corriere della Sera, Nov. 26, 2017;
from the Moynihan Letters, #64, Nov. 27th, 2017

Dear children, the Great Vessel and a Great Shipwreck;
this is the [cause of] suffering for men and women of faith. 
—Our Lady to Pedro Regis, October 20th, 2020;
countdowntothekingdom.com

WITHIN the culture of Catholicism has been an unspoken “rule” that one must never criticize the Pope. Generally speaking, it is wise to refrain from criticizing our spiritual fathers. However, those who turn this into an absolute expose a grossly exaggerated understanding of papal infallibility and come dangerously close to a form of idolatry — papalotry — that elevates a pope to an emperor-like status where everything he utters is infallibly divine. But even a novice historian of Catholicism will know that popes are very human and prone to mistakes — a reality that began with Peter himself:

And when Cephas [Peter] came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face because he clearly was wrong. (Galatians 2:11)

The post-Pentecost Peter… is that same Peter who, for fear of the Jews, belied his Christian freedom (Galatians 2 11–14); he is at once a rock and a stumbling-block. And has it not been thus throughout the history of the Church that the Pope, the successor of Peter, has been at once Petra and Skandalon—both the rock of God and a stumbling block? —POPE BENEDICT XIV, from Das neue Volk Gottes, p. 80ff

Popes have made and make mistakes and this is no surprise. Infallibility is reserved ex cathedra [“from the seat” of Peter, that is, proclamations of dogma based on Sacred Tradition]. No popes in the history of the Church have ever made ex cathedra errors. —Rev. Joseph Iannuzzi, theologian and patristics expert

That is both a reassuring but also cautionary statement.

When we see this in the facts of history, we are not celebrating men but praising the Lord, who does not abandon the Church and who desired to manifest that he is the rock through Peter, the little stumbling stone: “flesh and blood” do not save, but the Lord saves through those who are flesh and blood. To deny this truth is not a plus of faith, not a plus of humility, but is to shrink from the humility that recognizes God as he is. Therefore the Petrine promise and its historical embodiment in Rome remain at the deepest level an ever-renewed motive for joy; the powers of hell will not prevail against it —Cardinal Ratzinger (POPE BENEDICT XVI), Called to Communion, Understanding the Church Today, Ignatius Press, p. 73-74

However, Christ’s Petrine promises do not guarantee that a pope cannot make serious errors in judgment or fall into grave sin. As such, even the laity may be required to publicly address these contradictions when the salvation and welfare of our fellow man are at stake:

Christ’s faithful are at liberty to make known their needs, especially their spiritual needs, and their wishes to the Pastors of the Church. They have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church. They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ’s faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to their Pastors, and take into account both the common good and dignity of individuals. Code of Canon Law, 212

Recently, the Pope has made statements in books and media that have created tremendous controversy and confusion. But theologian Fr. Tim Finigan states:

…if you are troubled by some statements that Pope Francis has made in his recent interviews, it is not disloyalty, or a lack of Romanita to disagree with the details of some of the interviews which were given off-the-cuff. Naturally, if we disagree with the Holy Father, we do so with the deepest respect and humility, conscious that we may need to be corrected. However, papal interviews do not require either the assent of faith that is given to ex cathedra statements or that internal submission of mind and will that is given to those statements that are part of his non-infallible but authentic magisterium. —Fr. Tim Finigan, tutor in Sacramental Theology at St John’s Seminary, Wonersh; from The Hermeneutic of Community, “Assent and Papal Magisterium”, October 6th, 2013; http://the-hermeneutic-of-continuity.blogspot.co.uk

Forgive me for such a lengthy introduction, but it is necessary. For what needs to be said, while grave in nature, is intended to help the Church “with the truth and with theological and human competence,” insofar as I am able. For what is unfolding this hour is the spread of global Communism under two pretences which, tragically, have been wholly endorsed by Pope Francis himself…

OVERSTEPPING PAPAL PREROGATIVE?

I. Climate Change

In his Encyclical Letter Laudato si’, Pope Francis warns about the limitations of the Church’s voice in secular matters:

Here I would state once more that the Church does not presume to settle scientific questions or to replace politics. But I am concerned to encourage an honest and open debate so that particular interests or ideologies will not prejudice the common good. —Laudato si’n. 188

At the same time, the document then takes a position on the controversial and fraud-ridden science behind man-made (anthropogenic) “global warming.”[1] 

The same mindset which stands in the way of making radical decisions to reverse the trend of global warming also stands in the way of achieving the goal of eliminating poverty. —Laudato si’n. 175

This led Cardinal George Pell to issue a balancing statement:

It’s got many, many interesting elements. There are parts of it which are beautiful. But the Church has no particular expertise in science… the Church has got no mandate from the Lord to pronounce on scientific matters. We believe in the autonomy of science. —Cardinal Pell, Religious News Service, July 17th, 2015; relgionnews.com

At the heart of the encyclical is a belief that unmitigated anthropogenic warming would harm the poor, and hence, “radical decisions” must be taken. As such, Francis went on to openly promote The Paris Agreement, which actually imposes taxes on the poor (such as increased fuel costs) and is attached to the population control agendas of the United Nations “sustainable development” goals that frequently have the “overpopulation” of third world countries in their sights. 

Dear friends, time is running out! …A carbon pricing policy is essential if humanity wants to use the resources of creation wisely… the effects on the climate will be catastrophic if we exceed the 1.5ºC threshold outlined in the Paris Agreement goals. —POPE FRANCIS, June 14th, 2019; Brietbart.com

This plea left many Catholic faithful perplexed. For while encouraging “honest and open debate” the Holy Father was now decidedly aligning with global forces with “particular interests or ideologies” that not only contradicted Catholic teaching but were actively crushing any attempt at honest and open debate.

The Vatican’s position was based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) data, which is troubling, since the IPCC has been discredited on numerous occasions. Dr. Frederick Seitz, a world-famous physicist and former president of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, criticized the 1996 IPCC report that used selective data and doctored graphs: “I have never witnessed a more disturbing corruption of the peer review process than events that led to this IPCC report,” he lamented.[2] In 2007, the IPCC had to correct a report that exaggerated the pace of melt of the Himalayan glaciers and that wrongly claimed they could all vanish by 2035.[3] The IPCC was recently caught again exaggerating global warming data in a report rushed through in order to influence The Paris Agreement. That report fudged data in order to suggest no ‘pause‘ in global warming has occurred since the turn of this millennium.[4] In fact, IPCC member Ottmar Edenhofer admitted altogether:

…one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy.  Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth… —dailysignal.com, November 19th, 2011

Let that sink in. Because you’re going to hear this theme re-emerge again.

What has followed in the mainstream media is by now incredibly familiar: fear-mongering, exaggerated predictions, fudged statistics, and censorship as those controlling the global warming narrative have forbidden debate and punished climatologists who would dare disagree. Perhaps most appalling is that “greenhouse gases” have been treated as if they are toxic. On the contrary, higher concentrations of carbon dioxide mean better growing conditions around the globe. Ironically, it was environmentalists sounding the alarm, warning that the poor would be hurt the most by adopting expensive and environmentally destructive energy alternatives such as solar power and wind mills. 

We do not have any scientific proof that we are the cause of the global warming that has occurred in the last 200 years…The alarmism is driving us through scare tactics to adopt energy policies that are going to create a huge amount of energy poverty among the poor people. It’s not good for people and it’s not good for the environment…In a warmer world we can produce more food. —Dr. Patrick Moore, Fox Business News with Stewart Varney, January 2011; Forbes.com

II. COVID-19

Then came the “pandemic.”

From day one, just a basic reading of the daily news suggested something utterly bizarre was afoot — from the origins of the virus,[5] to the way governments responded, to the way established science was utterly discarded and draconian measures implemented against the entire general public (watch Following the Science?). Once again, anyone who questioned the media’s narrative was censored, punished, and marginalized — as if “honest and open debate” would kill people. As a result, many protested against the government’s obvious overreach of quarantining the healthy, of forcing them to wear masks contrary to science (and causing documented harm), and closing churches while liquor stores and abortuaries remained open.

But instead of rebuking governments, the faithful were stunned to watch nearly every cleric from the Pope, down to the village pastor, agree to restricting the faithful’s access to the sacraments.

What do you think the Lord would say about the universal sacramental shutdown within the Church that has deprived the faithful — among them many elderly and dying people — of the sacraments across the world? Such a thing has never happened in the 2,000-year history of the Church, not even in the hardest times of war, plague, and persecution. What would have happened if the Church had intensified its sacramental life? But instead, it acted according to the general secular logic, which does not know faith and causes the shutdown of the sacraments and the desolation of the places of pilgrimage, among other things (cf. the empty St. Peter’s Square). Nevertheless, on March 25 of last year, Pope Francis urged us to ask God for the end of the pandemic worldwide. So to what do our faith and reason have to refer: to trust in our own measures, which did not achieve the desired effect but caused enormous damage, or to God’s supernatural help? — His Excellency Marian Eleganti, auxiliary bishop of Chur, Switzerland; April 22nd, 2021; lifesitenews.com

In fact, two United Nations agencies warned that the unprecedented lockdown of healthy populations could lead to a “doubling of world poverty” and a further “135 million” to starve to death.[6] How could world leaders, much less the Pope, think this was a good idea? What happened to our “preferential option for the poor”? What about those losing their businesses and livelihoods due to prolonged lockdowns? And what about those thousands who were dying because of delayed surgeries? What about the skyrocketing mental health issues and a potential explosion of suicides?[7] What about the deaths through a pandemic of drug abuse? David Redman, a former head of the Alberta Emergency Management Agency, writes in his recent paper: “Canada’s Deadly Response to COVID-19”:

The Canadian “lockdown” response will kill at least 10 times more than it might have saved from the actual virus, COVID-19. The unconscionable use of fear during an emergency, to ensure compliance, has caused a breach in confidence in government that will last a decade or more. The damage to our democracy will last at least a generation. —July 2021, page 5, “Canada’s Deadly Response to COVID-19”

Is the Pope unaware of all these realities? If so, that is not the case with every shepherd. French Bishop Marc Aillet warned that the dangerously myopic approach to “health” by government officials, focusing solely on COVID-19 to the exclusion of everything else, is leading to a social disaster.

There are many testimonies concerning the psychological disturbance and even the premature death of our elders. Little is said about the significant increase in depression among individuals who were unprepared. Psychiatric hospitals are overloaded here and there, psychologists’ waiting-rooms are crowded, a sign that French mental health is worsening – a cause for concern, as the Health Minister has just publicly acknowledged. There have been denunciations of the risk of “social euthanasia”, given estimations that 4 million of our fellow citizens find themselves in situations of extreme loneliness, not to mention the additional million in France who, since the first confinement, have fallen below the poverty threshold. And what about small businesses, the suffocation of small traders who will be forced to file for bankruptcy? …man is “one in body and soul”, it is not right to turn physical health into an absolute value to the point of sacrificing the psychological and spiritual health of citizens, and in particular to deprive them of freely practicing their religion, which experience proves to be essential for their equilibrium. Fear is not a good counsellor: it leads to ill-advised attitudes, it sets people against one another, it generates a climate of tension and even violence. We may well be on the verge of an explosion! —Bishop Marc Aillet for the diocesan magazine Notre Eglise (“Our Church”), December 2020; countdowntothekingdom.com

But instead of coming to the defence of these vulnerable groups and those demanding “honest and open debate” of the questionable “scientific” policies of governments, the Pope berated and belittled those sounding the alarm in a shocking rebuke:

Some of the protests during the coronavirus crisis have brought to the fore an angry spirit of victimhood, but this time among people who are victims only in their own imagination: those who claim, for example, that being forced to wear a mask is an unwarranted imposition by the state, yet who forget or do not care about those who cannot rely, for example, on social security or who have lost their jobs. With some exceptions, governments have made great efforts to put the well-being of their people first, acting decisively to protect health and to save lives… most governments acted responsibly, imposing strict measures to contain the outbreak. Yet some groups protested, refusing to keep their distance, marching against travel restrictions—as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom!… We spoke earlier of narcissism, of armor-plated selves, of people who live off grievance, thinking only of themselves… they are incapable of moving outside of their own little world of interests. —POPE FRANCIS, Let Us Dream: The Path to a Better Future (pp. 26-28), Simon & Schuster (Kindle Edition)

That Pope Francis appeared completely out of touch with the valid concerns within his flock became an ominous sign that something was wrong at the Vatican. Those who thought the Church was going to stand in the corner of medical truth, freedom, and defence of the poor, were gravely mistaken — the opposite was happening. As Peter once denied and abandoned Christ, so too, many felt abandoned from that moment on by the Pope and those shepherds who, like him, would now simply echo the media’s highly controlled narrative.

A GRAVE TURN…

But all this would take on apocalyptic proportions when the Pope would state on Italian television:

I believe that ethically everyone must take the vaccine. It is the ethical choice because it is about your life but also the lives of others. I do not understand why some say that this could be a dangerous vaccine. If the doctors are presenting this to you as a thing that will go well and doesn’t have any special dangers, why not take it? There is a suicidal denialism that I would not know how to explain, but today, people must take the vaccine. —POPE FRANCIS, interview for Italy’s TG5 news program, January 19th, 2021; ncronline.com

This was a contradiction of the very guidelines of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), charged with doctrinal orthodoxy in the Catholic Church:

…practical reason makes evident that vaccination is not, as a rule, a moral obligation and that, therefore, it must be voluntary. — “Note on the morality of using some anti-Covid-19 vaccines”, n. 6 (emphasis mine)

The confusion was immediate. For one, many bishops weren’t convinced that taking a “vaccine” that utilized aborted fetal cells was ethical, period. 

I won’t be able to take a vaccine, I just won’t brothers and sisters, and I encourage you not to if it was developed with material from stem cells that were derived from a baby that was aborted… it is morally unacceptable for us. —Bishop Joseph Brennan, Diocese of Fresno, California; November 20th, 2020; youtube.com

…those who knowingly and voluntarily receive such vaccines enter into a kind of concatenation, albeit very remote, with the process of the abortion industry. The crime of abortion is so monstrous that any kind of concatenation with this crime, even a very remote one, is immoral and cannot be accepted under any circumstances by a Catholic once he has become fully aware of it. —Bishop Athanasius Schneider, December 11th, 2020; crisismagazine.com

Second, the Holy Father surprisingly ran roughshod over individual conscience, which is a violation of Catholic teaching and basic medical ethics.

Man has the right to act in conscience and in freedom so as personally to make moral decisions. “He must not be forced to act contrary to his conscience. Nor must he be prevented from acting according to his conscience, especially in religious matters.” —Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1782

The consequences of the Pontiff’s statement have been catastrophic. For one, countless doctors, nurses, professors, etc. and even priests are being fired from their positions as vaccine mandates sweep throughout the world. I am daily hearing agonizing stories now of fathers and mothers facing nearly impossible odds as they are left in the cold for deciding against this medical intervention. In fact, while typing this paragraph, my nephew called to say his wife is going to be dismissed from her college unless she is injected. She’s already had COVID and most likely has strong and durable immunity, which no longer apparently matters (which is a complete contradiction of the science of immunology). And then there is this Canadian University professor…

Some are even being told that a religious exemption is null and void since “The Pope said that they are mandatory.” The utter silence of the hierarchy in the face of this medical apartheid is inexplicable. That such a gross injustice is taking place, sometimes abetted by bishops or cardinals themselves, is perhaps one of the greatest signs of our times that a mass deception is taking place. Ironically, it’s not the shepherds but scientists who are warning the flock of the gathering wolves of medical tyranny:

There’s a mass psychosis. It’s akin to what happened in German society before and during World War II where normal, decent people were turned into aides and “just following orders” type of mentality that led to genocide. I see now that same paradigm happening. –Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, MD, August 14th, 2021; 35:53, Stew Peters Show

It’s a disturbia. It’s maybe a group neurosis. It is something that’s come over the minds of people all over the world. Whatever is going on is going on in the tiniest island in the Philippines and Indonesia, the smallest little village in Africa and South America. It’s all the same — it’s come over the entire world. —Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH, August 14th, 2021; 40:44, Perspectives on the Pandemic, Episode 19

As one person asked, “What is the difference between a Yellow Star and a Vaccine Passport? 82 years“.

The very arguments the Pope used to state that an ethical obligation exists were also flawed from the start. To begin with, these so-called “vaccines”, which are actually gene therapies according to the Food and Drug Administration in the U.S., [8] are still in clinical trials until 2023. By definition, they are experimental until all the safety data is reported and the long term effects evaluated. Therefore, to suggest that they have no “special dangers” is a contradiction.

In order to even consider these particular injections, that utilized the remains of an aborted child, the CDF said they may only be considered under specific conditions, including the following:

In the absence of other means to stop or even prevent the epidemic, the common good may recommend vaccination…  “Note on the morality of using some anti-Covid-19 vaccines”, n. 6

This is not the case. Many antiviral treatments — most of them suppressed and censored by the mainstream media and even health bodies — are curing people and reducing hospitalizations by as much as 85% (see n.9 in Top Ten Pandemic Fables). That these effective treatments have been withheld from the public is criminal… and yet, the Church has remained silent about it — presumably because no one has researched this?

Finally, in what is the most tragic irony — it turns out that it actually is suicidal for some to take these injections, as we now see in government data from around the world that reveals astonishing and unprecedented deaths and injuries after injection (see The Tolls). The mainstream media, obsessed with counting “cases” and “COVID deaths”, are suddenly stone quiet about these disturbing statistics, which has led one of the most cited doctors in the National Library of Medicine to conclude:

It’s going to go down in history as the most dangerous biological-medicinal product rollout in human history. —Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH, July 21st, 2021, Stew Peters Show, rumble.com at 17:38

Why, then, are world leaders recklessly pushing this experiment forward? Just as there are indeed ideologies driving climate change policy, so too with vaccines. Just as “global warming” is a front for Marxist economic reform,[9] so too, are these “vaccines” that the public is being forced to line up for, in what will be an endless stream of mandatory booster shots — and massive profits for pharmaceutical companies and their investors.[10] In a recent statement by Kristalina Georgieva, Head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), we get an honest confession of what the overarching goal really is — and it’s not health:

This year, next year, vaccine policy is economic policy, and it is even a higher priority than the traditional tools of fiscal and monetary policy. Why? Because without it, we cannot turn the fate of the world economy around. —August 27th, 2021; australianvoice.livejournal.com

Ah, “for the love of money is the root of all evils,” wrote St. Paul. [11] This is not about turning a pandemic around, but turning the world upside down in what is called the “Great Reset“… And according to global leaders, we must throw every caution to the wind and rush at “Warp Speed” into the “Fourth Industrial Revolution“.[12] 

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is literally, as they say, a transformative revolution, not just in terms of the tools that you will use to modify your environment, but for the first time in human history to modify human beings themselves. —Dr. Miklos Lukacs de Pereny, research professor of science and technology policy at Universidad San Martin de Porres in Peru; November 25th, 2020; lifesitenews.com

Without swift and immediate action, at an unprecedented pace and scale, we will miss the window of opportunity to ‘reset’ for… a more sustainable and inclusive future. In other words, the global pandemic is a wake-up call we cannot ignore… With the urgency that now exists around avoiding irreversible damage to our planet, we must put ourselves on what can only be described as a war footing. —dailymail.com, September 20th, 2020

THE GREAT RESET… OF THE POPULATION?

So they were scattered for lack of a shepherd,
and became food for all the wild beasts. (Ezekiel 34:5)

There is no way easy way to say it. Whether the Pope is aware of what he’s promoting or not (and we give him the benefit of the doubt), the office of the Holy See is presently abetting one of the most subversive revolutions in world history — one, his predecessors warned of for over a century.

At this period, however, the partisans of evil seems to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself …that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view—namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism. —POPE LEO XIII, Humanum Genus, Encyclical on Freemasonry, n.10, April 20th, 1884

How important is the threat posed by speculative Freemasonry? Well, eight popes in seventeen official documents condemned it… over two hundred Papal condemnations issued by the Church either formally or informally… in less than three hundred years. —Stephen, Mahowald, She Shall Crush Thy Head, MMR Publishing Company, p. 73

Make no mistake: those billionaire financiers pulling the strings of the IPCC, the WHO, the IMF, and the majority of national governments, see these “crises” as the perfect fodder for their global revolution.

Even before the pandemic hit, I realized that we were in a revolutionary moment where what would be  impossible or even inconceivable in normal times had become not only possible, but probably absolutely necessary. And then came Covid-19, which has totally disrupted people’s lives and required very different behaviour. It is an unprecedented event that probably has never occurred in this combination. And it really endangers the survival of our civilization… we must find a way to cooperate on fighting climate change and the novel coronavirus. —George Soros, May 13th, 2020; independent.co.uk.

Freemason, Sir Henry Kissinger, says the “new normal” will be according to their “Enlightenment” values:

The reality is the world will never be the same after the coronavirus. To argue now about the past only makes it harder to do what has to be done… Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program…We need to develop new techniques and technologies for infection control and commensurate vaccines across large populations [and] safeguard the principles of the liberal world order. The founding legend of modern government is a walled city protected by powerful rulers… Enlightenment thinkers reframed this concept, arguing that the purpose of the legitimate state is to provide for the fundamental needs of the people: security, order, economic well-being, and justice. Individuals cannot secure these things on their own… The world’s democracies need to defend and sustain their Enlightenment values… The Washington Post, April 3rd, 2020

This is the same Kissinger who said:

Depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World. — former U.S. Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, National Security Memo 200, April 24, 1974, “Implications of world wide population growth for U.S. security & overseas interests”; National Security Council’s Ad Hoc Group on Population Policy

What has to be done — so we are told by the “philanthropist” almost singlehandedly funding the mass vaccination of the globe — is to reduce population growth: 

The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent. —Bill Gates, TED talk, February 20th, 2010; cf. the 4:30 mark

The truth is that Gates has been obsessed with limiting the world’s population since he was a child, according to his father:

It’s an interest he has had since he was a kid. And he has friends who are interested in supporting research into world population problems, people whom he admires… —William Henry Gates, Sr., January 30th, 1998; salon.com

So why has the Vatican become the unofficial religious advertising agency for Gates and his fellow revolutionaries, many who are unequivocally pro-abortion/contraception and population control advocates (and invited to speak at the Vatican!)? Why is the Church giving its total trust and unwavering loyalty to the very global organizations that are invested in eugenics?[13]

FULFILLING FATIMA?

Nearly a hundred years earlier, Our Lady appeared in Fatima, Portugal where she warned just weeks before the Communist revolution there that, if the world did not repent, Russia “will spread her errors throughout the world.” Her message was by and large ignored, and thus twenty years later, Pope Pius XI would write of the…

…authors and abettors who considered Russia the best-prepared field for experimenting with a plan elaborated decades ago, and who from there continue to spread it from one end of the world to the other… Our words are now receiving sorry confirmation from the spectacle of the bitter fruits of subversive ideas, which We foresaw and foretold, and which are… threatening every other country of the world. —POPE PIUS XI, Divini Redemptoris, n. 24, 6

But part of Our Lady’s revelations involved a “third secret” — a message from Our Lady, apparently enclosed in an envelope, and then given to the popes by the seer Sr. Lucia. It was to be read after 1960. However, one-by-one, the popes decided not share it with the faithful. Rumours abounded that they found the content too troubling to make public. Perhaps the closest we came to learning its contents, or at least, an example of them, were in comments made to German pilgrims by the late St. John Paul II:

Given the seriousness of the contents, my predecessors in the Petrine office diplomatically preferred to postpone publication so as not to encourage the world power of Communism to make certain moves. On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired… The Still Hidden Secret, Christopher A. Ferrara, p. 37; cf. Fulda, Germany, Nov. 1980, published in the German Magazine, Stimme des Glaubens; cf. www.ewtn.com/library [14]

Then, in the year 2000, the Vatican published the supposed Third Secret in the form of a vision the children saw of an angel hovering above the earth with a flaming sword:

The Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it’ a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God. —The Message of Fatima, July 13th, 1917; vatican.va

In a statement on the Vatican’s website, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone provided an interpretation suggesting that the vision had already been fulfilled by the attempted assassination of John Paul II. To say the least, many Catholics were left perplexed and unconvinced. Many felt there was nothing in this vision that was too astonishing to be revealed. What exactly disturbed popes so much that they kept the secret hidden all those years? It’s a fair question. American lawyer and journalist, Christopher A. Ferrara, investigated the many controversies surrounding the Third Secret. Among them, he recounts a conversation between Pope John Paul II and Sr. Lucia. 

As Sister Lucia informed Cardinal Oddi, while the Cardinal was in Fatima for the annual May 13th celebration of the apparitions in 1985, the Pope told her that the Secret had not been divulged “because it could be badly interpreted.” Here the Pope provided a further hint that the Secret would be embarrassing to Church authorities because it concerns a crisis of faith and discipline for which they themselves are responsible. —The Still Hidden Secret, Christopher A. Ferrara, p. 39

In 1995, Cardinal Luigi Ciappi, no less than the papal theologian to Popes Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II—a span of 40 years—made this revelation concerning the contents of the Secret, quotes Ferrara: “In the Third Secret it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church begins at the top.” [15] On May 13th, 2000, John Paul II linked Our Lady of Fatima to the “Woman clothed in the sun” in Revelation Chapter 12.[16] Two things of note is that the dragon’s tail sweeps “a third of the stars in the sky and hurled them down to the earth,” an allusion to the apostasy of the shepherds (Rev 12:4; cf. When the Stars Fall). Second is that the dragon, who opposes the Woman, wishes to devour her offspring (Rev 12:4, 17) — a “conspiracy against life”, John Paul II would later write.[17]

According to Ferrara, it is believed that Our Lady included words along with the vision described by Sr. Lucia — and that this suppression of the text may be what actually contains the “too controversial” message. One can only speculate — and Ferrara builds a convincing case. But is it possible that Our Lady was describing a colossal failure of a future pope — one that would lead to a collapse in the faith?  

One could endlessly speculate, of course… a pope caught in sexual scandal, a pope acting for monetary gain, or a pope selling his authority for power, etc…. Sadly, these things have already happened in the Church’s history. But what would cause a massive “collapse of faith” or, as Our Lady has said repeatedly to Pedro Regis of Brazil this year, a massive shipwreck of the Great Vessel, the Barque of Peter? Is it possible that it could be the faithful discovering, far too late, that the Pope had unwittingly led them into a massive depopulation programme and economic slavery to a global health dictatorship (ie. the “beast”)? 

Recall again in the Fatima vision that the children saw this bishop in white, whom they perceived to be the pope: “half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way…” It’s not a matter of “if” this will happen. Already, open source government data shows that 14,000 have reportedly died after being inoculated in the United States; in Europe, that number is over 23,000 with millions of others reporting adverse injuries, tens of thousands of them permanently (see The Tolls). And this is just the beginning. As was stated by several leading scientists and experts in my documentary Following the Science?they fear that these mRNA gene therapies being mass injected into the population may actually be used for nefarious purposes. No less than the former Vice President of Pfizer, Dr. Mike Yeadon, warns:

…if you wanted to introduce a characteristic which could be harmful and could even be lethal, you can even tune [the booster shot] to say ‘let’s put it in some gene that will cause liver injury over a nine-month period,’ or, ’cause your kidneys to fail but not until you encounter this kind of organism [that would be quite possible].’ Biotechnology provides you with limitless ways, frankly, to injure or kill billions of people…. I’m very worried … that pathway will be used for mass depopulation, because I can’t think of any benign explanation….

The eugenicists have got hold of the levers of power and this is a really artful way of getting you to line-up and receive some unspecified thing that will damage you. I have no idea what it will actually be, but it won’t be a vaccine because you don’t need one. And it won’t kill you on the end of the needle because you would spot that. It could be something that will produce normal pathology, it will be at various times between vaccination and the event, it will be plausibly deniable because there will be something else going on in the world at that time, in the context of which your demise, or that of your children will look normal. That’s what I would do if I wanted to get rid of 90 or 95% of the world’s population. And I think that’s what they’re doing.

I remind you of what happened in Russia in the 20th Century, what happened in 1933 to 1945, what happened in, you know, Southeast Asia in some of the most awful times in the post-war era. And, what happened in China with Mao and so on. We’ve only got to look back two or three generations. All around us there are people who are as bad as the people doing this. They’re all around us. So, I say to folks, the only thing that really marks this one out, is its scale —interview, April 7th, 2021; lifesitenews.com

Here we recall the warning of Pope John Paul II that “genetic manipulation” can only be considered desirable “provided it is directed to the true promotion of the personal well being of man and does not infringe on his integrity or worsen his conditions of life.” As it is, the long term effects of the current mRNA gene therapies are unknown, and hence, they cannot possibly “fall within the logic of the Christian moral tradition” much less be forced upon mankind through vaccine mandates.[18] 

Dr. Igor Shepherd is an expert on bio-weapons, counter-terrorism, Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and high yield Explosives (CBRNE) and Pandemic preparedness. He worked in the Communist Soviet Union before becoming a Christian and emigrating to the United States to work for the government. In an emotional address, Dr. Shepherd pulls no punches:

I want to look 2 – 6 years from now [for adverse reactions]… I call all these vaccinations against COVID-19: biological weapons of mass destruction… global genetic genocide. And this is coming not only to the United States, but to the whole world… With these kind of vaccines, untested properly, with revolutionary technology and side-effects we don’t even know, we can expect millions of people will be gone. That’s a dream of Bill Gates and eugenics.  —vaccineimpact.com, November 30th, 2020; 47:28 mark of video

He lost his job for speaking out. Then there is Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, MD, who has published over three hundred articles in the fields of immunology, bacteriology, virology, and parasitology, and received numerous awards and the Order of Merit of Rhineland-Palatinate. He was equally blunt:

There is going to be an auto-attack… You are going to plant the seed of auto-immune reactions… The dear Lord did not want humans, not even Fauci, going around injecting foreign genes into the body… it’s horrifying, it’s horrifying. —The Highwire, December 17th, 2020

Someday, will the Pope (or a future pontiff) realize that the present unfettered endorsement of the United Nations “sustainable development goals“, of global warming, vaccine mandates and the slippery slope of civil unions, etc. will have brought about an unprecedented persecution and suffering of the Church… and that in the sorrow of that moment, he will lead those who blindly followed these deceptions — “other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain” — to his and their martyrdom? 

How we are living the fulfillment of the Fatima vision in these moments is something we may never know until we have the wisdom of hindsight. What is certain is that the present course of the Barque of Peter is headed into rocky shoals… Dear children, do not be afraid. I love you and am with you. You are heading towards a painful future, but those who are with the Lord should not be afraid of anything. You are living in times of sorrow. You are heading for a great shipwreck of faith, and few will remain in the truth. Give me your hands. I want to help you, but what I do depends on you. I do not want to force you. Be obedient and accept God’s Will for your lives. You will yet have long years of hard trials. Find strength in prayer, in listening to the Words of my Jesus, and in the Eucharist. I know each one of you by name, and I will pray to my Jesus for you. Courage! Your victory is in the Lord. Onward with joy. This is the message I give you today in the name of the Most Holy Trinity. Thank you for having allowed me to gather you here once more. I bless you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Be at peace. —Our Lady to Pedro Regis, September 4th, 2021; countdowntothekingdom.com

THE STRONG DELUSION

Posted on  by Mark

There’s a mass psychosis.
It’s akin to what happened in German society
before and during World War II where
normal, decent people were turned into aides
and “just following orders” type of mentality
that led to genocide.
I see now that same paradigm happening.

–Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, MD, August 14th, 2021;
35:53, Stew Peters Show

It’s a disturbia.
It’s maybe a group neurosis.
It is something that’s come over the minds
of people all over the world.
Whatever is going on is going on in the
tiniest island in the Philippines and Indonesia,
the smallest little village in Africa and South America.
It’s all the same — it’s come over the entire world.

—Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH, August 14th, 2021;
40:44, Perspectives on the Pandemic, Episode 19

I don’t normally use phrases like this,
but I think we are standing at the very gates of Hell.
 
—Dr. Mike Yeadon, former Vice President and Chief Scientist
of Respiratory and Allergies at Pfizer;
1:01:54, Following the Science?

First published November 10th, 2020:

THERE are extraordinary things happening every day now, just as Our Lord said they would: the closer we get to to the Eye of the Storm, the faster the “winds of change” will be… the more rapid major events will befall a world in rebellion. Recall the words of the American seer, Jennifer, to whom Jesus said:

My people, this time of confusion will only multiply. When the signs begin to come forth like boxcars, know that the confusion will only multiply with it. Pray! Pray dear children. Prayer is what will keep you strong and will allow you the grace to defend the truth and persevere in these times of trials and sufferings. —Jesus to Jennifer, November 3rd, 2005

These events will come like boxcars on the tracks and will ripple all across this world… the division will multiply. —April 4th, 2005

The faster things go, the more confusion there is (see It Rapidly Comes Now)… the more a spiritual blindness is covering the earth. Truly, people have begun to see evil as good and good as evil. They take fact as fiction and fiction as fact. What is common sense is called “conspiracy theory” while the true conspiracies are welcomed “for the common good.” And there is no reasoning with them at all. As one person commented recently, 

It’s as if their minds have been hijacked. They are just like rooms without any doors or windows, and the walls are impenetrable. It seems they need grace from God to know the real truth. 

What is happening? 

THE RESTRAINER HAS LIFTED

In the same year that Jennifer received those words from Jesus, I was driving alone in British Columbia, Canada, making my way to my next concert, enjoying the scenery, drifting in thought, when suddenly I heard within my heart the words:

I have lifted the restrainer.

I felt something in my spirit that is hard to explain. It was as if a shock wave traversed the earth—as if something in the spiritual realm had been released. But I was befuddled. I had no idea what that word meant.

So that night in my motel room, I asked the Lord if what I heard was in the Scriptures, since the word “restrainer” was unfamiliar to me. I grabbed my Bible and opened it straight to 2 Thessalonians 2:3. I began to read:

Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God… And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 

Of course, my jaw hit the floor when I read that word. In other words, before the “lawless one” or Antichrist is unrestrained, a period of lawlessness would come, a rebellion… a revolution. The old Douay-Rheims Bible has an insightful footnote on this. 

This revolt [apostasy], or falling off, is generally understood, by the ancient fathers, of a revolt from the Roman empire, which was first to be destroyed, before the coming of Antichrist. It may, perhaps, be understood also of a revolt of many nations from the Catholic Church which has, in part, happened already, by the means of Mahomet, Luther, etc. and it may be supposed, will be more general in the days of the Antichrist. —footnote on 2 Thess 2:3, Douay-Rheims Holy Bible, Baronius Press Limited, 2003; p. 235

Here, we see two elements of the restrainer holding back the Antichrist: a political aspect, the “Roman empire”; and a spiritual aspect, the “Catholic Church”, embodied by the papacy. Indeed, the Roman Empire after its conversion to Christianity was deeply entwined with Catholicism as the Gospel transformed the European landscape and beyond. Hence, St. John Newman explained:

Now this restraining power [is] generally admitted to be the Roman empire… I do not grant that the Roman empire is gone. Far from it: the Roman empire remains even to this day… And as the horns, or kingdoms, still exist, as a matter of fact, consequently we have not yet seen the end of the Roman empire. —Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801-1890), The Times of Antichrist, Sermon 1

But now, with The Coming Collapse of America (who is arguably the “mother” of this empire—see Mystery Babylonand the Barque of Peter now in a veritable Great Shipwreckthe “restrainer” has almost fully been removed. In a recent message to the ecclesiastically approved Brazilian seer, Luz de Maria, St. Michael the Archangel says:

People of God, pray: the events will not delay, the mystery of iniquity will appear in the absence of the Katechon. —November 4th, 2020, countdowntothekingdom.com

Katechon—the Greek word for “restrainer.” If that is the case, then the second part of St. Paul’s warning should also be in view:

The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thess 2:9-11)

Indeed, in the same message, St. Michael says,

Humanity is soaked in the dense fog that evil has spread over human beings so that they would not see goodness, but would continue to walk the path of mediocrity that leads them to fall into the clutches of the Devil. The People of God continue moving towards falsehood disguised as good by the will of man. 

Three days later in another part of the world, Our Lady said to Italian seer, Gisella Cardia:

…as you can see, this is a time of great confusion, when evil is hiding behind false disguises; you will need to pay attention: walk together with Jesus and nourish yourselves with His Word for your salvation. Children, my little ones, they will try to make you believe that everything is being done for your good, but that is exactly where the temptation of the devil is hiding—discern. —November 7th, 2020; countdowntothekingdom.com

Those words, for me, confirmed the “now word” the Lord has been speaking in my heart for several weeks—that many things are coming now that will be done “for the common good” — “mandatory” rules, restrictions, impositions, lockdowns… all for the “common good.” But this is a deception; it is ultimately geared toward what the United Nations and global leaders are calling The Great ResetIt involves the near-complete collapse of the present order in order to create a new one—but, this time, without the Judeo-Christian God. It is simply global Communism in a new hat. 

And the vast majority will accept this, believe this—and be utterly deceived.

Who can compare with the beast or who can fight against it? (Rev 13:4)

You are already witnessing this now, brother and sisters. It’s already happening which, thanks be to God means, the Eastern Gate is Opening for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

Where are we now in an eschatological sense? It is arguable that we are in the midst of the rebellion and that in fact a strong delusion has come upon many, many people. It is this delusion and rebellion that foreshadows what will happen next: and the man of lawlessness will be revealed. —“Are These the Outer Bands of a Coming Judgment?”, November 11th, 2014; blog

THE STRONG DELUSION

We were warned. Servant of God Sr. Lúcia of Fatima spoke of this coming “strong delusion” in her own way, calling it a “diabolical disorientation”: 

People must recite the Rosary every day. Our Lady repeated this in all her apparitions, as if to arm us in advance against these times of diabolical disorientation, so that we would not let ourselves be fooled by false doctrines, and that through prayer, the elevation of our soul to God would not be diminished…. This is a diabolical disorientation invading the world and misleading souls! It is necessary to stand up to it… —Sister Lucy, to her friend Dona Maria Teresa da Cunha

I want to stop and emphasize what Sr. Lúcia said about the Rosary. Since we launched Countdown to the Kingdom nearly a year ago, the seers and visionaries there have almost universally stated that we need to pray the Rosary daily. We need to do this. It is the prayer of the “woman clothed in the sun” who is protected from the “dragon” (Rev 12). If the Rosary is boring, dry, difficult… even better, because then your perseverance will make it that much more powerful. Heaven has its reasons to pray this prayer, and that’s good enough for me. 

The Church has always attributed particular efficacy to this prayer, entrusting to the Rosary… the most difficult problems. At times when Christianity itself seemed under threat, its deliverance was attributed to the power of this prayer, and Our Lady of the Rosary was acclaimed as the one whose intercession brought salvation. —Pope John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, 40

Pray the Rosary, every day—for each of those beads is a seed of hope. 

I wrote about this Diabolical Disorientation last year, and so want to remain more focused here on St. Paul’s words. Those who “refused to love the truth and so be saved” are those God permits to be sifted like weeds from the wheat. This strong delusion even makes them believe what is false. This sifting is happening before our eyes as families become divided, friendships turn to ice, and daggers come out; as truth is relativized, compromised, and ultimately sacrificed on the altars of political correctness. It is the fruit of a generation that has not only ignored the apparitions of Our Lord and Lady but even mocked them. 

All justice will be confounded, and the laws will be destroyed. —Lactantius (c. 250 -c. 325), Fathers of the Church: The Divine Institutes, Book VII, Chapter 15, Catholic Encyclopedia; http://www.newadvent.org

This is evident most of all in the overturning of the natural law. But it’s also evident in, for example, many countries re-electing politicians who are in favor of redefining marriage, killing the unborn, and enforcing gender ideology. Hence, St. John Paul II announced the definitive fulfillment of Lactantius’ prophecy in our times:

Vast sectors of society are confused about what is right and what is wrong, and are at the mercy of those with the power to “create” opinion and impose it on others. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Cherry Creek State Park Homily, Denver, Colorado, 1993

But now, the strong delusion is going much further than merely confounding the law. It is beginning to pass over the unrepentant like a fog, pulling them into spiritual darkness. In a “now word” six years ago, the danger was that man himself was unleashing Hell on earth (see Hell Unleashed). Remember the warnings of Our Lady of Kibeho, that the hatred that burst over into genocide there was a warning for the world.

…[it] is not directed to only one person nor does it concern only the current time; it is directed to everyone in the entire world. —Seers of Kibeho; www.kibeho-cana.org

Hence, in that writing, I warned that the “spiritual” and “physical” cracks in your life have to be closed; that if God tolerated our stiff-neckedness before, it is no longer. Those who leave those cracks open are literally giving a foothold to principalities and powers so that the sifting will now hasten. Of course, we close those cracks by simply repenting of sin and making strides to sincerely convert and abandon our sinful nature. With God’s grace in the Sacraments, prayer, Our Lady’s help, etc., we can and will do this. In Hell UnleashedI finished that article with a list of practical things you can and must do quickly. 

WHAT ABOUT MY LOVED ONES?

Countless are the letters I’ve received from parents concerned about their children and grandchildren who have abandoned the faith. You can see them being drawn into this Great Deception, and you are worried. Here’s the hope. As Prof. Daniel O’Connor and I explained in our video series on the Timeline of events unfolding at this hour, this sifting is leading to a decisive moment for the world: what is called the Warning or Illumination of Conscience, what the Lord led me to in the Book of Revelation as the “sixth seal.”[1] It is a Great Shaking of the entire world to reveal to men and women their consciences, as if to lay before them their eternal path in that moment as if they were standing before God in judgment. It is the decisive moment of the “prodigal son” when he must choose to either return to the Father’s House, or remain sullied in the pig slop of his sin[2] before the earth is purified by chastisements.  

As I wrote in Spiraling Toward the Eyethis worldwide event will position the Church and the anti-church for its “final confrontation.” In a message to mystic Barbara Rose, God the Father speaks of this separation of the weeds from the wheat:

To overcome the tremendous effects of generations of sin, I must send the power to break through and transform the world. But this surge of power will be uncomfortable, even painful for some.This will cause the contrast between darkness and light to become even greater. —from the four volumes Seeing With the Eyes of the Soul, November 15th, 1996; as quoted in The Miracle of the Illumination of Conscience by Dr. Thomas W. Petrisko, p. 53; cf. godourfather.net

This is confirmed in messages to Australian Matthew Kelly, who was told of a coming illumination of consciences or “mini-judgment.”

Some people will turn even further away from Me, they will be proud and stubborn….  —Ibid., p.96-97

When will this come? When asked, the seers in Garabandal, Spain who coined the term “the Warning”, said:

“When Communism comes again everything will happen.”

The author responded: “What do you mean by comes again?”

“Yes, when it newly comes again,” she replied.

“Does that mean that Communism will go away before that?”

“I don’t know,” she said in reply, “the Blessed Virgin simply said ‘when Communism comes again’.” —Garabandal – Der Zeigefinger Gottes (Garabandal – The Finger of God), Albrecht Weber, n. 2 

Fatalism is not a Christian disposition—the idea that we cannot change the future. We can mitigate to a certain degree the purification that is coming—and God wants us to by our prayers, fasting, and sacrifices; by our bold witness, love and charity toward those who oppose us. However, we have to be realists and admit that the time to turn back the hand of justice has expired[3] as the blood of the unborn continues to be shed and the innocence of our young is corrupted on a daily basis through social media, pornography and godless education. And we keep re-electing the individuals who advance this anti-gospel.

I’ll just add this for my American readers: whether or not Trump is re-elected (as many still hope will be the case [because of his support for life] after the courts settle electoral fraud allegations), it does not stop what has been set in motion. The purification of the Church and the world cannot be stopped; it is coming—and a wonder that God has been this patient. 

The Lord does not delay his promise, as some regard “delay,” but he is patient with you, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)

The great Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen warned his fellow Americans that this day would come. 

Communism, then, is coming back again on the Western world, because something died in the Western world—namely, the strong faith of men in the God that made them. —“Communism in America”, cf. youtube.com

So, if your family or friends have hardened their hearts to the Gospel, if they are like the blind leading the blind, continue to intercede for them. Be the face they can turn to when things get really bad. This is why it is a temptation for us to get caught in the “politics,” caught in the anger, name-calling and barbs that will destroy trust and erect walls. Satan knows very well that Our Lady is forming a “Little Rabble” to crush his head in the lives of the “lost” when the time for the Exorcism of the Dragon comes. Don’t fall into this trap. Imitate Jesus who, when the hour of His Passion came, simply gave His opponents The Silent Answer

Last, recall that when God was about to purify the earth the first time by a flood, He looked the world over to find someone, somewhere who was righteous. 

…and his heart was grieved… But Noah found favor with the Lord. (Gen 6:5-7)

Yet, God saved Noah and his family. Read You Be Noah

PERSONAL RESPONSE

In closing, what must you do personally? At the end of St. Paul’s discourse on the coming of the lawless one and the strong delusion, he gives the antidote:

So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter. (2 Thessalonians 2:15)

Time and again, Our Lady has been telling us through the messages on Countdown to the Kingdom to remain faithful to the “true magisterium.” By this is meant the constant and unchanging teachings of the Catholic Church. No bishop’s conference can change them; not even the pope can change them, much less any off-the-cuff remarks in interviews or secular reports.

But we also have to avoid a legalistic spirit in defending the truth. A lot of the division in the Church today also comes from those who cannot deal in subtleties, who idolize the past, who weaponize the Mass, who want every second homily to be about Hell, who want the “sodomites” and “bad bishops” to pretty much be burned at the stake… “By this all men will know that you are my disciples,” Jesus said—not by our theological perfection but “if you have love for one another.” [4] Hence, the divisions today can be summarized in…

Those who defend the truth without charity
versus
those who defend charity without truth. 

Both are a deception and a weapon of the enemy to implode authentic Christianity.

Our Lady’ Little Rabble must embrace both, and in the proper context. Remember that Christ’s commandments aren’t a checklist but a lovelist

If you love me, you will keep my commandments. (John 14:15)

In those words, we find the key to abiding friendship with God. His commandments aren’t a restriction upon our freedom but a path to “abundant life” in Him.[5] To Our Lady, the New Gideon in our times, I give the last word:

My children, do you want to be holy? Do the Will of my Son. If you do not refuse what He tells you, you will possess his likeness and sanctity. Do you wish to conquer all evils? Do whatever my Son tells you. Do you wish to obtain a grace, even one that is difficult to obtain? Do whatever My Son tells you and desires of you. Do you wish to have also the very basic things that are necessary in life? Do whatever my Son tells you and desires of you. Indeed, my Son’s words enclose such power that, as He speaks, His word, which contains whatever it is you ask, makes the graces you seek arise within your souls. There are so many souls that find themselves filled with passions, weak, afflicted, unfortunate and wretched. And although they pray and pray, they obtain nothing because they do not do what my Son asks of them – heaven, it seems, is irresponsive to their prayers… My child, listen closely. If you wish to exercise dominion over all things, and give me the joy of being able to make of you my true child and a child of the Divine Will, then seek nothing but [God’s Will]. —Our Lady to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will, Meditation n. 6, “The Wedding Feast of Cana”

TOP TEN PANDEMIC FABLES

Posted on  by Mark

IT’S a year unlike any other on planet earth. Many know deep down that there is something very wrong taking place. No one is allowed to have an opinion any more, no matter how many PhD’s behind their name. No one has the freedom any longer to make their own medical choices (“My body, my choice” no longer applies). No one is allowed to engage facts publicly without being censored or even dismissed from their careers. Rather, we have entered a period reminiscent of the powerful propaganda and intimidation campaigns that immediately preceded the most distressing dictatorships (and genocides) of the past century. Volksgesundheit — for the “Public Health” — was a centrepiece in Hitler’s plan.  

In democratic societies, the needs of public health sometimes require citizens to make sacrifices for the greater good, but in Nazi Germany, national or public health — Volksgesundheit — took complete precedence over individual health care. Physicians and medically trained academics, many of whom were proponents of “racial hygiene,” or eugenics, legitimized and helped to implement Nazi policies aiming to “cleanse” German society of people viewed as biologic threats to the nation’s health. —In the Name of Public Health — Nazi Racial Hygiene by Susan Bachrach, Ph.D.

With CNN’s Don Lemon calling for the “unvaccinated” to be barred from grocery stores, or Piers Morgan demanding that the unvaccinated be barred from health careVolksgesundheit has returned with a frothing vengeance — this time against those nasty, selfish healthy people who dare to trust their powerful natural immunity, as millennia of descendants did before them. Even the existence of concentration “camps” for “high risk individuals” (ie. the unvaccinated?) is no conspiracy theory and is detailed on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website. The fact that many are losing their jobs as we speak for refusing the jab brings this reality very much home. We are headed toward one of the most divisive and destructive periods perhaps in human history — and propaganda, once again, is playing a central role.

Of course, for those with an indomitable faith in the media (“They would never lie to us”), I’ll just remind them again of how the mainstream media silenced, opposed, and censored anyone[1]) who suggested that the current coronavirus originated from a laboratory in Wuhan where it was undergoing “gain of function” research (ie. creating a bioweapon). But now, this “conspiracy theory” is widely accepted as fact. 

So-called “conspiracy theorists” are more often than not simply diligent people who’ve done their homework — unlike paid journalists who are often merely reading a carefully crafted and highly controlled narrative. In fact, a new study found that the most “vaccine hesitant” are those with PhD’s.[2] Think about that.

What else has the media gotten wrong?

THE TOP TEN FABLES

I have compiled the top ten veritable fables that are constantly streaming across mainstream news. CNN, for example, is a veritable dumpster fire of pseudo-science and propaganda the likes of which I’ve never seen in my lifetime since I became a member of the media in the mid-90’s. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t think CNN and their likes (on both the “left” and “right”) are just abusing journalism; they’re actually a threat to democracy. Their use of fear and convenient omission of facts to manipulate the public is not journalism but what Pope Francis once aptly compared to coprophiliathe arousal from excrement or feces.

I am convinced that we have to break the vicious circle of anxiety and stem the spiral of fear resulting from a constant focus on ‘bad news’… This has nothing to do with spreading misinformation that would ignore the tragedy of human suffering, nor is it about a naive optimism blind to the scandal of evil. —POPE FRANCIS, January 24th, 2017, usatoday.com; cf. Fake News, Real Revolution

David Redman, a former head of the Alberta Emergency Management Agency, writes in his recent paper: “Canada’s Deadly Response to COVID-19”:

The Canadian “lockdown” response will kill at least 10 times more than it might have saved from the actual virus, COVID-19. The unconscionable use of fear during an emergency, to ensure compliance, has caused a breach in confidence in government that will last a decade or more. The damage to our democracy will last at least a generation. —July 2021, page 5, “Canada’s Deadly Response to COVID-19”:

Of course, your first question may be what makes this following list any more true than the mainstream media’s? For one, we are actually citing world renowned experts and official documentation — not in-house media doctors, insiders with the CDC or WHO, Pharma-friendly spokesmen, or anonymous “fact-checkers.” Second, we aren’t censoring opposing views and present the data and studies, which are open to further analysis and criticism (which is what science used to do). Third, we are citing the long standing science that was often quietly and conveniently, and without evidence, changed in the last year in order to create a greater crisis than there actually is.[3] Fourth, those speaking up against the highly controlled news narrative are being punished for doing so, which begs the question: why would they risk their entire careers and livelihood to go counter to the propaganda machine? Fifth, unlike Facebook’s fact-checker who is funded by a group with $1.9 billion in stocks in a vaccine company, there is no monetary gain for those defending actual science these days. 

The disease “COVID-19” is not a hoax… but the scale of this crisis certainly has been. Here is why actual experts say so…  

1. PCR TESTING 

The highly controversial Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests are what have been used worldwide to test the populace for the coronavirus: SARS-CoV-2. However, several international courts have condemned the tests as “not a reliable test for SARS-CoV-2″[4] and in December 2020, a published study confirmed that “The certainty of the evidence was judged as very low due to the risk of bias, indirectness, and inconsistency issues.” 

The reason is very straightforward. A sample swab of RNA is taken from your nasal cavity and then amplified a set number of cycles. Dr. Anthony Fauci, who also advises President Joe Biden on the pandemic, himself warned:

If you get a cycle threshold of 35 or more, the chances of it being replication competent are miniscule… it’s just dead nucleotides [above that]. —9:16 mark in documentary Following the Science?

However, inexplicably, the CDC recommended that testing go to within 40 cycles [5] and the World Health Organization (WHO) at 45 cycles[6] So, for example, the Kansas Health and Environmental Laboratories used 42 cycles.[7] This criteria created what the New York Times reported to be a landslide of false-positive results of “up to 90 percent”[8] leading health organizations around the world to declare a veritable “casedemic” that continues to this hour. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons published an article asking, “COVID-19: Do We Have a Coronavirus Pandemic, or a PCR Test Pandemic?”[9] while the Bulgarian Pathology Association declared, “COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically Meaningless.”[10] 

A massive German study published in The Journal of Infection in December of 2020 concluded:

In light of our findings that more than half of individuals with positive PCR test results are unlikely to have been infectious, RT-PCR test positivity should not be taken as an accurate measure of infectious SARS-CoV-2 incidence. — “The performance of the SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR test as a tool for detecting SARS-CoV-2 infection in the population”, December 8th, 2020; journalofinfection.com

Then, in a surprise turnabout in July 2021, the CDC abruptly dropped its recommendation for the PCR test calling for something capable of distinguishing between SARS-CoV-2 and seasonal influenza — a stunning admission of the test’s limitations. No wonder, reports Yahoo:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urged labs this week to stock clinics with kits that can test for both the coronavirus and the flu as the “influenza season” draws near… There were 646 deaths relating to the flu among adults reported in 2020, whereas in 2019 the CDC estimated that between 24,000 and 62,000 people died from influenza-related illnesses. —July 24th, 2021; yahoo.com

Oops. Oh well. Nonetheless, the PCR tests, to this day, continue to be used to report “cases” — even though the tests, by themselves, are indeed “scientifically meaningless,” leading Dr. Astrid Stückelberger, PhD who works with the WHO to call the tests “intentionally criminal.”[11] She wasn’t alone:

This is a blatant lie and it’s being done all over the world… the PCR method developed by [Dr. Terry] Mullis who got the Nobel prize for this, he himself said, do not use this test for diagnosis… In fact, this test should be trashed immediately worldwide, and it should be considered a criminal act for anyone to be sent to quarantine because this test was positive. —Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Interview, dryburgh.com, February 12th, 2021

2. “CASES”

In one of the greatest “sleight of hands” of the century, the media began reporting these “positive tests” as “cases.” But not only do we know now that the hysteria created by those “case” numbers on your TV screen are grossly false, but the very use of the term “case” has been abused.

The medical term “case” always referred to someone who was actually sick — until 2020. Now anyone who tests “positive” is deemed a “case,” even if they have no symptoms or active viral infection. “They’re testing people and calling them “cases”. That is not epidemiology — that’s fraud,” declared Dr. Lee Merritt, former President of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons.[12] 

A case is normally somebody who has symptoms, it is not normally somebody who is completely healthy. So what we’ve done by confusing positive tests with cases is basically class a huge number of people who are immune to the disease as having the disease. That’s a massive misconception. —Dr. John Lee, NHS (National Health Service) pathologist in the UK. cf. 14:06 mark Following the Science?

3. ASYMPTOMATIC “CASES” ARE A THREAT

Entire countries began to lockdown the healthy, and continue to do so today, treating them as a viral “threat” — an unprecedented measure in pandemic history. In fact, says the former Vice President and Chief Scientist of vaccine manufacturer Pfizer, it’s a complete fabrication. 

Asymptomatic transmission: the concept a perfectly well person can represent a respiratory virus threat to another person; that was invented about a year ago — never been mentioned before in the industry… It’s not possible to have a body full of respiratory virus to the point that you’re an infectious source and for you not to have symptoms… It’s not true that people without symptoms are a strong respiratory virus threat. —April 11th, 2021, interview on The Last American Vagabond

One of the world’s most renowned immunologists agrees:

…it was the crowning of stupidity to claim that someone could have COVID-19 without any symptoms at all or even to pass the disease along without showing any symptoms whatsoever. —Professor Beda M. Stadler, PhD, former director of the Institute for Immunology at the University of Bern in Switzerland; Weltwoche (World Week) on June 10th, 2020; cf. backtoreason.medium.com

David Redman, former head of the Alberta Emergency Management Agency, states that the response of governments flew entirely in the face of established science and pandemic preparedness measures that were already in place. He points to the WHO’s September 2019 guidance document compiled by the best infectious disease doctors in the world:  “Non-pharmaceutical public health measures for mitigating the risk and impact of epidemic and pandemic influenza.”

Out of the 15 [non-pharmaceutical interventions listed in the document]—ones that we’ve come to know, closure of business, closure of schools, isolation of people that have been exposed — all three of those were strongly recommended against in a pandemic of this nature. Why? Because it was known from previous pandemics that those measures have no significant impact on the spread of a viral disease of the nature of COVID. —August 2nd, 2021; theepochtimes.com

Quarantine of exposed individuals, entry and exit screening for infection in travellers, border closure, and contact tracing are among the six non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) listed in the WHO document that are not recommended under any circumstances, notes The Epoch Times

To me it’s stunning that, as a public health scientist, we suddenly threw out these principles that we have sort of used for decades to deal with public health issues. —Dr. Martin Kulldorff , epidemiologist and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School; —August 10th, 2021, 5:24 mark, Epoch Times

4. MASKS STOP THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS

One of the most controversial measures aside from lockdowns — which are estimated to have killed millions, in and of themselves, through delayed surgeries, suicides, and starvation[13] — is the mandating of masks. Hundreds of studies had already shown that masking is completely ineffective against influenza, much less a coronavirus which is several times smaller.[14] In fact, long after governments, businesses, and the media claimed that masks worked without any evidence, the World Health Organization continually published statements to the opposite, including this one on December 1st, 2020:

At present there is only limited and inconsistent scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of masking of healthy people in the community to prevent infection with respiratory viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. — “Mask Use in the Context of COVID-19”, apps.who.int

This has been confirmed by numerous new studies and a mountain of statistical data that the media and the CDC completely ignores.[15] That’s because nothing has changed regarding the very physics of the virus. Dr. Colin Axon, who advises the United Kingdom’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), stated recently:

The small sizes are not easily understood but an imperfect analogy would be to imagine marbles fired at builders’ scaffolding, some might hit a pole and rebound, but obviously most will fly through… A Covid viral particle is around 100 nanometres, material gaps in blue surgical masks are up to 1,000 times that size, cloth mask gaps can be 500,000 times the size… Not everyone carrying Covid is coughing, but they are still breathing, those aerosols escape masks and will render the mask ineffective. —SAGE adviser for the UK Government, July 17th, 2021; The Telegraph

In fact, one of the science advisors to President Joe Biden also admitted recently:

We know today that many of the face cloth coverings that people wear are not very effective in reducing any of the virus movement in or out, either you’re breathing out or breathing in. —Dr. Michael Thomas Osterholm, August 2nd, 2021; CNN interview, :41, rumble.com

While he recommends n95 masks, these too are shown to be ineffective and harmful to those who wear them for extended periods.[16] Masks are causing a lot of harm and potential long-term damage to children, leading many doctors and mask experts to declare them “child abuse.” This past April, a court in Weimar, Germany declared:

The compulsion imposed on school children to wear masks and to keep their distance from each other and from third persons harms the children physically, psychologically, educationally, and in their psychosocial development, without being counterbalanced by more than at best marginal benefit to the children themselves or to third persons. Schools do not play a significant role in the “pandemic” event… There is no evidence that facemasks of various types can reduce the risk of infection by SARS-CoV-2 at all, or even appreciably. This statement is true for people of all ages, including children and adolescents, as well as asymptomatic, presymptomatic, and symptomatic individuals. —April 14th, 20201; 2020news.de; English: jdfor2024.com 

For one of the most exhaustive articles with footnotes to the most recent studies on masking, see Unmasking the Facts

5. SOCIAL DISTANCING

Arguably one of the most silly pandemic fables has been the requirement for people to stand anywhere from “three”, to “six”, to “ten or twelve feet” away from each other — depending on which “expert” you talk to. In truth, so-called “social distancing” is a complete fabrication in 2020 that ignores the science of how coronaviruses are spread. 

Early on in the epidemic, a story was invented to explain why this should work: The droplets that you breathe out are a certain size and it was claimed that if you were further than 2 meters away from the nearest person, it would allow that time for those droplets to sort of fall to earth, and you wouldn’t breathe them in and therefore wouldn’t catch the virus. This is almost only a made up story. [If you are infected], you are breathing out about 10 million virus particles per breath, nano-meter sized particles. So these particles get into the air and circulate around the air… —Dr. John Lee, NHS (National Health Service) pathologist in the UK, 28:52 in Following the Science?

Indeed, an MIT study confirms that it doesn’t matter if you are 6 or 60 feet away from somebody, or whether you’re wearing a mask (as just explained). 

It really has no physical basis because the air a person is breathing while wearing a mask tends to rise and comes down elsewhere in the room so you’re more exposed to the average background than you are to a person at a distance… What our analysis continues to show is that many spaces that have been shut down in fact don’t need to be. Often times the space is large enough, the ventilation is good enough, the amount of time people spend together is such that those spaces can be safely operated even at full capacity and the scientific support for reduced capacity in those spaces is really not very good. I think if you run the numbers, even right now for many types of spaces you’d find that there is not a need for occupancy restrictions… The distancing isn’t helping you that much and it’s also giving you a false sense of security because you’re as safe at 6 feet as you are at 60 feet if you’re indoors. Everyone in that space is at roughly the same risk…  —Prof. Martin Z. Bazant, April 23rd, 2021, cnbc.com; Study: pnas.org

Hence, “social distancing” is even more ridiculous when mandated outside. 

If you look at the air flow outside, the infected air would be swept away and very unlikely to cause transmission. There are very few recorded instances of outdoor transmission.—Prof. Martin Z. Bazant, April 23rd, 2021, cnbc.com

6. THE “VACCINES” ARE “SAFE AND EFFECTIVE”

The first falsehood is actually labelling the mRNA injections promoted by Pfizer and Moderna as “vaccines.” According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States — and printed in black and white in Moderna’s own registration of their drug — is the statement:

Currently, mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA. —pg. 19, sec.gov; (watch Moderna’s CEO explain the technology and how they are “actually hacking the software of life”: TED talk)

There is nothing conventional about these. Over and over, the world is told on a daily basis that these injections are “safe and effective.” Not according to Dr. Peter McCullough MD, MPH who has worked on drug safety commissions and is the most highly cited scientist in the world in the National Library of Medicine. 

A typical new drug at about five deaths, unexplained deaths, we get a black-box warning, your listeners would see it on TV, saying it may cause death. And then at about 50 deaths, it’s pulled off the market. —Dr. Peter McCullough, interview with Alex Newman, transcript: assets-global.website

Indeed, during the 1976 Swine Flue pandemic, the U.S. attempted to vaccinate 55 millions Americans, but the shot caused some 500 cases of paralysis and 25 deaths. 

The program was killed, at 25 deaths. —Ibid; assets-global.website

With these inoculations, however, the official reporting site in the United States (VAERS) has reported over 12,533 deaths and 14,251 permanent disabilities post-injection. In Europe (EudraVigilance), over 20,595 are dead with 1,960,607 reported injuries (for links to the official sites, see The Tolls). 

We have independent evaluations suggesting 86% [of deaths in the U.S. — 12,533 as of this writing] is related to the vaccine [and] is far beyond anything that is acceptable… It’s going to go down in history as the most dangerous biological-medicinal product rollout in human history. —Dr. Peter McCullough, July 21st, 2021, Stew Peters Show, rumble.com at 17:38

Finally, few in the public seem to realize that the clinical trials are still ongoing making those who are inoculated a part of what scientists are calling the “largest human experiment in human history“, as confirmed by Moderna. Facebook is notorious for their false banners declaring the “vaccines” as safe. On the contrary, the long term trials of these COVID shots were waived and the injections were authorized for “emergency use” by governments, even before clinical trials had been completed or peer-reviewed, and thus the long term side effects are unknown. It is precisely these concerns that renowned scientists all over the world have raised — and Facebook has frequently censored. Hear their warnings in the documentary Following the Science? and hear/see actual testimonies of injuries, etc. at the uncensored MeWe Group: “COVID Vaccine Adverse Reactions Testimonies“. One such recent testimony was relayed to me by a man whose brother is cab drive. “He cannot divulge info BUT… he has nurses that tell him NOT to get the vax as he would not believe what it is doing to people, especially the elderly.”

The real concern voiced by immunologists and virologists around the world, including the award winning Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, MD, is what will happen a year or two from now to those who took this gene therapy.

There is going to be an auto-attack… You are going to plant the seed of auto-immune reactions. And I tell you for Christmas, don’t do this. The dear Lord did not want humans, not even [Dr.] Fauci, going around injecting foreign genes into the body… it’s horrifying, it’s horrifying. —The Highwire, December 17th, 2020

6. THE mRNA INJECTIONS PROVIDE “HERD IMMUNITY”

The mRNA injections were never tested as to whether they would stop transmission of the virus. Rather, they were developed to reduce symptoms as a gene therapy. 

The studies [on the mRNA inoculations] aren’t designed to assess transmission. They don’t ask that question, and there’s really no information on this at this point in time. —Dr. Larry Corey oversees the National Institutes of Health (NIH) COVID-19 “vaccine” trials; November 20th, 2020; medscape.com; cf. primarydoctor.org/covidvaccine

They were tested with an outcome of severe disease — not preventing infection. —U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, Good Morning America, December 14th, 2020; dailymail.co.uk

Indeed, so-called “breakthrough cases” among the vaccinated are no surprise to doctors who understand the nature of these injections. In Israel, which claims vaccination rates well over 80-90% of the populace, it is being reported by Dr. Kobi Haviv, the medical director of Herzog hospital, the largest in Israel, that “95% of the severe patients are vaccinated” and that “85-90% of the hospitalizations are in fully vaccinated people.”[17] in the U.K., the death rate is 6.6 times higher among the vaccinated,[18] according to a new report, suggesting that the injections are ruining recipient’s immune systems, as was warned. I have personally spoken with a nurse in Edmonton, Alberta who said the ICU during a recent peak involved many who were “vaccinated”. I have heard this story repeated anecdotally throughout the world, mostly from nurses and doctors usually too afraid to speak publicly for fear of losing their jobs. 

The so-called Covid-19 vaccine is not a vaccine at all. It’s a dangerous, experimental gene therapy. The Center for Disease Control, the CDC, gives the definition of the term vaccine on its website. A vaccine is a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease. Immunity is the protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without being infected. This so-called Covid-19 vaccine does not provide any individual who receives the vaccine with immunity to Covid-19. Nor does it prevent the spread of the disease. —Dr. Stephen Hotze, M.D., February 26th, 2021; hotzehwc.com

Recently, Sarah Westall reported that attorney Tom Renz, who is suing the CDC & DHHS, and others on behalf of America’s Frontline Doctors, stated that he is hearing from doctors all over the United States that their ICUs are filling up with most vaccinated patients:

I got an email from an ICU doctor whose hospital was going to try and make her take the vaccine, and this person says ‘in my ICU 31 of the 34 patients for COVID, because there is 34 there, 31 of them are vaccinated and are actually having vaccine reactions, it’s not COVID.’ And she said, ‘I don’t want to take this vaccine, what can I do?’… This is something I get all over the country. This is an outright lie, and we know it’s a lie.” —sarahwestall.com

So why does the media and TV health pundits continue to speak of herd immunity as if it can be achieved with these particular injections? And yet, we hear claims now that some ICU’s in Texas and Louisiana are apparently seeing more vaccinated than not. Even if that is the case — and already the media has been caught exaggerating once again — to blame the unvaccinated is wrong-headed. I’ll address that in No. 8.

7. EVERYONE IS IN DANGER FROM COVID-19

This reminds me of the AIDs campaigns in the 1990’s where billboards and television ads warned that everyone was at risk of getting AIDs and, therefore, ought to use condoms. In truth, if you stayed faithful to your spouse or remained chaste before marriage, or did not require a blood transfusion, there was essentially zero risk. 

So too with COVID-19, the media loved to terrorize their audience with the extremely rare cases where someone young dies from the disease suggesting, therefore, that everyone is at high risk. In truth, the danger is markedly different for those who are much older. The prestigious Nature journal reported: 

For every 1,000 people infected with the coronavirus who are under the age of 50, almost none will die. For people in their fifties and early sixties, about five will die — more men than women. The risk then climbs steeply as the years accrue. For every 1,000 people in their mid-seventies or older who are infected, around 116 will die. — August 28th, 2020; nature.com

Not unlike seasonal influenza, which can kill up to 600,000 globally each year, COVID-19 is also particularly hard on the aged with pre-existing health conditions.[19] The U.S. Centers for Disease Controls’ (CDC) reported that only 6% of the total death count had COVID-19 listed as the sole cause of death. The remaining 94% mortalities had an average of 2.6 comorbidities or preexisting health conditions that contributed to their deaths. In other words, with rare exceptions, COVID-19 is at most a nasty flu for the majority of the population with a high survival rate over 99.7%.[20]

Dr. Martin Kulldorff is an epidemiologist and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. He calls the global COVID response that locked down healthy, low risk individuals as the “biggest public health fiasco in history.” 

While anybody can get infected by COVID, there’s more than thousand fold difference in the risk for death in the mortality rates for the oldest and the youngest… The risk from COVID for children is less than the risk from annual influenza, which is already low for children. —August 10th, 2021, Epoch Times

Which is why insisting on injecting children with an experimental vaccine is rightly considered child abuse and a violation of the Nuremburg Code, which forbids involuntary medical experimentation on anyone.

8. THE UNVACCINATED ARE THE THREAT

This is perhaps the most dangerous and unsubstantiated lie in the media, which is fomenting a true medical apartheid. Mandatory vaccines and “vaccine passports” are now instruments being used to demonize those who refuse to become part of this experiment, or who already have natural immunity. Dr. Peter McCullough stated before a Senate Committee Hearing that Texas was already at 80% “herd immunity” before any vaccine campaign began. 

You can’t beat natural immunity. You can’t vaccinate on top of it and make it better. —Dr. Peter McCullough, March 10th, 2021; cf. documentary Following the Science?

MIT’s Technology Review reported a new study showing that “Covid-19 patients who recovered from the disease still have robust immunity from the coronavirus eight months after infection”[21] and Nature published a study in late May 2021 showing that “People who recover from mild COVID-19 have bone-marrow cells that can churn out antibodies for decades.”[22]

For some reason, people are in denial of the fact that actually, at the moment, one of the reasons we’re enjoying the situation we currently have, is because there has been a substantial build up of “herd immunity.” —Dr. Sunetra Gupta, Oxford epidemiologist 

The argument presented by obedient news anchors is that the unvaccinated will cause “variants” that will somehow evade the “vaccines.” However, there are always variants with any coronavirus and that will continue to be the case with SARS-CoV-2 for decades to come, state epidemiologists. The idea that one can completely eradicate such a virus has no basis in science. While variants are more contagious, says Dr. Mike Yeadon, they tend to be less harmful and so close in nature to the original virus, that one remains immune once infected: 

Once you’ve been infected, you’re immune. There’s no uncertainty about it. It’s been studied hundreds of times now, lots of literature has been published. So, once you’ve been infected, often you’ll have no symptoms, you’ll probably be immune for decades. Dr. Mike Yeadon, cf. 34:05, Following the Science?

Dr. Kulldorff states:

It’s not surprising that you have variants, and that you some variants sort of take over, so this is not at all surprising. The “Delta variant” might be somewhat more contagious, but that’s not a game-changer. What would be a game-changer is if you got a variant that started to kill young people, started to kill children, and the Delta variant is not doing that [in any statistically significant way]… What we know is that if you have had COVID, you have very good immunity — not only for the same variant, but also for other variants. And even for other types, cross-immunity, for other types of coronaviruses.—Dr. Martin Kulldorff, August 10th, 2021, Epoch Times

However, there may be one exception to this.

Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche, PhD, DVM as well as Nobel Prize laureate Prof. Luc Montagnier warned that, vaccinating with this type of injection during a pandemic is a huge mistake and could force a more lethal variant. This has been a subject of debate among scientists. We published excerpts from Dr. Vanden Bossche’s Open Letter shortly after it was released in March 2021 (see Grave Warnings):

…this type of prophylactic vaccines are completely inappropriate, and even highly dangerous, when used in mass vaccination campaigns during a viral pandemic. Vaccinologists, scientists and clinicians are blinded by the positive short-term effects in individual patents, but don’t seem to bother about the disastrous consequences for global health. Unless I am scientifically proven wrong, it is difficult to understand how current human interventions will prevent circulating variants from turning into a wild monster… Basically, we’ll very soon be confronted with a super-infectous virus that completely resists our most precious defense mechanism: The human immune system. From all of the above, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to imagine how the consequences of the extensive and erroneous human intervention in this pandemic are not going to wipe out large parts of our human population

But as usual, he was censored and gagged by the media.  

While one can barely make any incorrect scientific statements without being criticized by peers, it seems like the elite of scientists who are currently advising our world leaders prefer to stay silent. Sufficient scientific evidence has been brought to the table. Unfortunately, it remains untouched by those who have the power to act. How long can one ignore the problem when there is at present massive evidence that viral immune escape is now threatening humanity? We can hardly say we didn’t know—or were not warned.  —Open Letter, March 6th, 2021; watch an interview on this warning with Dr. Vanden Bossche here or here. (Read how Dr. Vanden Bossche is a contemporary “Moishie” in Our 1942)

While Dr. Vanden Bossche may be in a conflict of interest since he is actively working on a more suitable vaccine, according to his Linkedin account, Dr. Montagnier said the same thing:

Mass vaccinations are a “scientific error as well as a medical error,” he said. “It is an unacceptable mistake. The history books will show that, because it is the vaccination that is creating the variants.” —May 18th, 2021; interview with Pierre Barnérias, rairfoundation.com

In fact, a study in 2015 found that “imperfect vaccination can enhance the transmission of highly virulent pathogens.” [23] The current COVID-19 shots are the perfect example of such “leaky vaccines” since they do not stop the transmission of the virus but only reduce symptoms (while also causing the most unprecedented adverse reactions every recorded in the history of a vaccine campaign). Hence, it is no surprise that we have seen reports[24] that it is the vaccinated who are driving new outbreaks initially at the very same time that the mass vaccination has been rolled out.

In other words, it is the current vaccine campaign and the “vaccinated” — not the unvaccinated — which appears to have created the emerging situation…

9. THERE IS NO HOPE OUTSIDE MASS VACCINATION

Perhaps one of the biggest lies is that we are helpless — that mankind is going to be wiped out by this disease unless we all rush to, not only be injected by an experimental gene therapy with unknown long term effects, but that we will require future booster shots, perhaps indefinitely. Big Pharma’s dream and long plan has been to turn the world into vaccine junkies with trillions of dollars in profits at stake.[25]

On the contrary, it is well documented that both Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin have huge success rates in the treatment of COVID-19 — no matter what the media tells you. In fact, the one study in The Lancet that put Hydroxychloroquine in a bad light had to be retracted — a  “fake paper”, stated several observers.[26] On the other hand, a new study shows that there are 84% fewer hospitalizations for those treated with a “low-dose hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc and azithromycin.”[27] Vitamin D is now shown to reduce coronavirus risk by 54%.[28] And the evidence for Ivermectin, used successfully in several countries, is that it is a near miracle drug: cheap, safe, and effective. 

Mountains of data have emerged from many centers and countries around the world, showing the miraculous effectiveness of Ivermectin. It basically obliterates transmission of this virus. If you take it, you will not get sick. —December 8th, 2020; cnsnews.com

The mainstream and social media’s censorship of these truths is the biggest sign that you are in the midst of a mass propaganda campaign on behalf of some of the most powerful “health” brokers in the world. If they really cared, they’d simply let you hear the facts and let doctors do what they’ve always done: prescribe what is most suitable to the situation. In fact, the obsession with injecting everyone, including babies — and making this mandatory — has created more damage to the trust in both government and medical institutions than anything else in recent memory. 

Those who are pushing these vaccine mandates and vaccine passports — vaccine fanatics, I would call them — to me, they have done much more damage during this year than anti-vaxxers have done in two decades.—Dr. Martin Kulldorff, August 10th, 2021, 0:00 mark Epoch Times

In and of itself, fear must NEVER be used as a tool in response. If it is, it will have uncontrollable, long term, severe, unpredictable collateral damage. —David Redman, July 2021, “Canada’s Deadly Response to COVID-19“, pg. 37

Without solid science, fear, unfortunately, is the only tool left to the compromised mainstream and social media giants. And sadly, it’s working with “unpredictable” and potentially horrific consequences once this experiment is done…

10. COVID IS NOT OUR ONLY PROBLEM

You’d think so, given the daily news reports by the minute and hour for over a year and a half now. But ignoring all the other health issues with the single goal that “ALL MUST BE VACCINATED” is as dangerous as it is bizarre. 

Public Health is about all health outcomes. It’s not just about one disease like COVID. You can’t just focus on COVID and ignore everything else. —Dr. Martin Kulldorff, August 10th, 2021, 5:40 mark Epoch Times

In one of the most powerful and balanced statements from a bishop, Dr. Marc Aillet warned that the myopic approach of health and government officials is leading to a social disaster.

In 2018 there were 157000 deaths in France due to cancer! It took a long time to talk about the inhuman treatment that was imposed in care homes on the elderly, who were shut in, sometimes locked in their rooms, with family visits being prohibited. There are many testimonies concerning the psychological disturbance and even the premature death of our elders. Little is said about the significant increase in depression among individuals who were unprepared. Psychiatric hospitals are overloaded here and there, pyschologists’ waiting-rooms are crowded, a sign that French mental health is worsening – a cause for concern, as the Health Minister has just publicly acknowledged. There have been denunciations of the risk of “social euthanasia”, given estimations that 4 million of our fellow citizens find themselves in situations of extreme loneliness, not to mention the additional million in France who, since the first confinement, have fallen below the poverty threshold. And what about small businesses, the suffocation of small traders who will be forced to file for bankruptcy? …man is “one in body and soul”, it is not right to turn physical health into an absolute value to the point of sacrificing the psychological and spiritual health of citizens, and in particular to deprive them of freely practicing their religion, which experience proves to be essential for their equilibrium. 

Fear is not a good counsellor: it leads to ill-advised attitudes, it sets people against one another, it generates a climate of tension and even violence. We may well be on the verge of an explosion! —Bishop Marc Aillet for the diocesan magazine Notre Eglise (“Our Church”), December 2020; countdowntothekingdom.com

Setting aside all the serious controversies of how COVID deaths have been determined and calculated — a fable in itself[29] — John Hopkins University claims that there are over 4.9 million global deaths from COVID-19. Compare that now to the potential deaths and destruction that lockdowns themselves have and will create:We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as a primary means of control of the virus… We may well have a doubling of world poverty by early next year. This is a terrible global catastrophe, actually. And so we really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdowns as your primary control method.—Dr. David Nabarro, World Health Organization (WHO) special envoy, October 10th, 2020; The Week in 60 Minutes #6 with Andrew Neil; gloria.tv…we were already calculating 135 million people around the world, before COVID, marching to the brink of starvation. And now, with the new analysis with COVID, we’re looking at 260 million people, and I’m not talking about hungry. I’m talking about marching toward starvation… we literally could see 300,000 people die per day over a 90-day period. —Dr. David Beasley, Executive Director of The United Nations World Food Program; April 22nd, 2020; cbsnews.comThe math reveals how utterly cruel and immoral these pandemic measures are, which have stopped nothing because they can’t. They have delayed the inevitable, which is all they could do, and if anything, by locking down billions, the stress and lack of exposure to germs has only weakened human immunity. We’ve made the war against this virus that much harder. The fact that there is such a deafening silence by leaders across the world in the face of this twisted reality is proof positive that the lies and propaganda are clearly working… which is why the media and their masters in Big Pharma will continue to push this agenda until every single person is vaccinated or… yes, or what?  Watch the documentary:
