The Truth Shall Set You Free (Jn 8:32)!




- - - - - - -




How does Christ refer to those who do not want to open their eyes to THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES, to those who have embraced the philosophy of life of “ignorance is bliss”? “YOU HYPOCRITES! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?” (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:51)!


THE FUNDAMENTAL AND EASIER WAY that leads gently, and even with dancing and enjoyment, TO HELL is: “Ignorance is bliss”!


I do not think it was by chance that when Pope John Paul II was asked toward the end of his life to offer one verse from the entire Bible for the people of God, he responded without hesitation: “THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE” (Jn 8:32; Jer 6:16)! Father, “Sanctify them in the truth” (Jn 17:17)! The Truth, tied to the cross of Jesus here on earth, is uncomfortable!


How can one live the Our Father, “Thy will be done”, when one avoids seeking to discover what this will is, in particular for Catholics, to confront ones life with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, not just with the Sacred Scriptures which are very often interpreted in the manner of comfortable subjectivism and relativism without the indispensable cross of Christ?!?


Jesus said to Saint Faustina (of the Divine Mercy): “YOU WILL PREPARE THE WORLD FOR MY FINAL COMING” (Diary of Saint Faustina, 429). Jesus also said to Saint Faustina: “Woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation” (Diary, 1160).


Jesus said: "This generation will not pass away till all these things take place” (Mt 24:34; Mk 13:30; Lk 21:32). There are a great number of indications and signs from the saints, the popes and from the messages of Our Lady that we are “this generation” which Christ referred to in Matthew 24. I believe that our “generation” will witness the most underhanded, sly and devastating deception of Satan in the history of the world and of the Church.


I also think that THIS FRAUD WILL BE DONE AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE, as hidden as possible, well prepared with all the motors of the culture (the mass media, schools, religious institutions), so as to fool as many people as possible. As Saint Hildegard wrote (who was made a doctor of the Church on October 7, 2012!): “two-thirds of the Christians will go with him” (the false Pope, the false prophet, the second beast of the Apocalypse)! Forewarned is forearmed!


It was interesting the Pope Benedict XVI INVITED CARDINAL BIFFI TO OFFER THE ANNUAL LENTEN RETREAT for the Pope and the top members of the Vatican (Feb. 27, 2007). “THE ANTICHRIST PRESENTS HIMSELF AS PACIFIST, ECOLOGIST AND ECUMENIST…”


The Servant of God, ARCHBISHOP FULTON SHEEN, said: “The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. … The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. SATAN WILL RECRUIT HIM FROM AMONG OUR BISHOPS.”

Who Decides The Truth?



THE FUNDAMENTAL BATTLE OF ALL TIMES is who establishes the truth, God or Satan, God or the world, God or each person? This battle will increase even more in the next few years before the second coming or Jesus Christ. Lucifer said, I am God, I decide the Truth, and Saint Michael the Archangel replied with his name: “Who is like unto God?” Original Sin was the same deception: “But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil".” Many modern philosophers led us into the “COPERNICAN REVOLUTION” of not seeking anymore reality and the truth outside of ourselves by way of our five senses but inside of ourselves, as if each one of us “will be like God”. “Abandoning the investigation of being, modern philosophical research has concentrated instead upon human knowing. …” (No. 5; Encyclical Letter: Fides et Ratio; John Paul II; 09-14-1998). In this fierce and underhanded battle, it is very important to be “wise as serpents and not just “innocent as doves” (Mt 10:16)!

The Masonic Plan For The Destruction Of The Catholic Church



It is most interesting how often we find this FALSE “LOVE” USED AS A POWERFUL STRATEGY in the 33 directives of the Grand Master of the Masons to the Catholic Bishops to destroy the Catholic Church! The word “love” APPEARS A WHOPPING 11 TIMES in these 33 directives! “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14)!


To understand better the hidden powerful strategy of using false love, see also below:
A DAMNED PRIEST WARNS ABOUT HELL


Directive 26. “Use committees of lay people and priests weak in faith who might CONDEMN AND REPREHEND WITHOUT DIFFICULTY EVERY APPARITION OF MARY and apparent miracle … Indicate the Seers as disobedient against Ecclesiastical Authority. Bring down their good name in the mud, so that no one will hold in consideration their Message.”

THE TESTIMONY OF GLORIA POLO



Gloria Polo died after being terribly burned by a lightning bolt on May 5, 1995 in Bogotá, Colombia; she was judged, and then came back to life. There are many people, like Gloria Polo, who are under the illusion to be OK according to their own conscience formed by their own personal criteria, or according to the criteria of the world and those around them, or according to the criteria of the devil, BUT NOT ACCORDING TO THE CRITERIA OF GOD, that is, according to THE TRUTH! This is the fundamental deception of Satan from the beginning of humanity and always (Gen 3:4-5)! We human beings are truly adept and ingenious in deceiving ourselves, WILLINGLY, and then forgetting about it so easily!


I believe that this testimony is a real gift from God that will help many people of good will, who are not afraid to confront themselves with the Truth, to convert themselves to the Truth and begin to live a new and fulfilling life with Jesus Christ. For us Catholics it will help us to make a good examination of conscience and then a good sacramental confession.

A DAMNED PRIEST WARNS ABOUT HELL



The following is the documentation of the confessions of a human demon, a dammed priest, by way of an EXORCISM (April 5, 1978) on a Swiss woman.


THE ABBOT VERDI-GARANDIEU, A HUMAN DEMON, priest of the diocese of Tarbes, France in the seventeenth century, addresses this pathetic message, THROUGH A POSSESSED WOMAN, to his brothers in the Priesthood, to beseech them - by order of the Most Holy Trinity and the Virgin Mary - to go back onto the narrow road of the Gospel, and so prevent themselves in their turn, from suffering in eternal Hell the horrible fate which befell him because of his infidelities to grace.


During an exorcism the demons are forces to reveal what is commanded of them in the name of God or the Blessed Virgin Mary etc. These confessions OFTEN REVEAL SATAN’S MOST POWERFUL BUT SUBTLE AND HIDDEN TRAPS which lead countless numbers of souls toward and into hell. I believe the following document will help many people of good will to take the precious gift of life, as well as eternity, much more seriously in a world in which Satan has done all he can to put us to sleep spiritually and to convince us that hell does not exist.




You can DOWNLOAD THIS DOCUMENT, which can be printed, at:


Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican's chief exorcist, was asked: “WHAT DO YOU SEE AS SATAN’S GREATEST SUCCESS?”, Amorth replied: “The fact that he has managed to convince people that he does not exist. He has almost managed it, even within the Church. We have a clergy and an Episcopate who no longer believe in the Devil , in exorcism, in the exceptional evil the Devil can instill, or even in the power that Jesus bestowed to cast out demons. … And they no longer believe in the Devil. We have entire Episcopates trying to counter exorcism. We have countries completely devoid of exorcists, such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. This is a shameful shortfall.”; (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).




- - - - - - -




Father Pellegrino Maria Ernetti (1925-1994), a Benedictine Monk in the Abbey of Saint George Major in Venice (Italy), where he received hundreds of people each week to undergo exorcism, began to record on magnetic tapes these exorcisms, and so little by little emerged a catechesis on the devil.

THE DREAM OF ST. JOHN BOSCO”

of the two pillars indicates to us the great importance of staying very close to Jesus in the Eucharist (while it is still possible) with our Rosary in hand.


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


Orthodox theologians of Marian theology tell us that the primary apparition of Our Lady in the last 180 years, beginning in 1830 with Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal to Saint Catherine Laboure in Paris, France, is Our Lady of Fatima, 1917. When Lucia asked the Lady her name, she replied: “I am the Lady of the Rosary”. How many lay people, priests and bishops feel they are more intelligent and wise than the “Virgin most prudent” and the “SEAT OF WISDOM”, and thus neglect the daily recitation of the Most Holy Rosary?!?


Those who promote the recitation of the Rosary everywhere deserve praise. It is this prayer that is the most efficacious in the present time of need.” (“A Manuscript On Purgatory”; http://purgatory-manu.blogspot.com).

Just as Mary had a fundamental role in the first coming of Jesus Christ, so too it will be for the second coming of Christ!


A prophetic book precisely for our times is “TRUE DEVOTION TO MARY”, by Saint Louis De Montfort. This treasure was found 130 after the death of the saint; very quickly it was translated into many languages.


To read some excerpts of what Father Stafano Gobbi, the founder of the Marian Movement for Priests, wrote about Montfort’s book, visit: “Funeral Stefano Gobbi” (http://spir-food.blogspot.com/2011/07/funeral-stefano-gobbi.html).


Blessed Pope John Paul II wrote about this book:
The reading of this book was a decisive turning-point in my life. I say ‘turning-point’, but in fact it was a long inner journey… This ‘perfect devotion’ is indispensable to anyone who means to give himself without reserve to Christ and to the work of redemption.” “It is from Montfort that I have taken my motto: ‘Totus tuus’ (‘I am all thine’). Someday I’ll have to tell you Montfortians how I discovered De Montfort’s Treatis on True Devotion to Mary, and how often I had to reread it to understand it”.

A Life's Adventure


I have spent my life persevering in seeking to discover the truth, often in the midst of subtle but deep-seated contradictions. Although born and raised a Catholic, it took me years to dig out of the non-constructive, critical traditionalist mentality of my parents. After finishing a BA in mathematics at UCLA (1974), I followed my parents into a cult based on a false private apparition at Necedah, Wisconsin (1980-1983). Only by the grace of God, after about two and a half years in this cultic type environment, I began to see the real situation into which my family and I had fallen into (see http://necedah-cult.blogspot.com/ and http://priv-rev.blogspot.com/). Although my parents and my sister and her husband, who she met in the cult, left Necedah, they never had the chance to study and to overcome the sectarian and elitist, schismatic traditionalist mentality which is most often permeated by Jansenism as well as a strong critical spirit toward the living authority of the Catholic Church. While I went on to learn and study about the beauty and wisdom of the documents of the Second Vatican Council as a religious seminarian (see http://o-m-v.blogspot.com/), as well as getting to know the profound spirituality and life of the charisma of Unity (Chiara Lubich), my parents, sister and brother-in-law were reading only extreme traditionalist books like “The Devil’s Final Battle” by Father Paul Kramer which ultimately led my sister and her husband and seven children to loose the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church along with the many recent gifts that the Holy Spirit constantly gives to his bride, the Church, which are especially needed in these most difficult times. I wrote an article trying to convince them to come back to the Catholic Church but to no avail (see http://schis-trad.blogspot.com/).


The Church on earth, the “Church Militant”, is made up of saints and sinners and everything else in between; Christ founded His Church on 12 men who were sinners, not 12 angels from heaven. Those who seek a “perfect” group on earth (like the Donatists of old) very often end up in the cults and the sects. But if one discovers that one’s cult is not “perfect”, one seeks another “perfect” sect according to ones own making and criteria. If one does not have enough humility to submit to the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church that Jesus Christ founded and promised to guide until the end of time, to whom does one submit? To himself? To the “perfect” group that agrees with him or her? To a charismatic leader? Where is our anchor, our “Rock”; where is the authentic interpretations of Sacred Scripture, if not in the Catechism of the Catholic Church? Did Jesus abandon us and leave us without an infallible guide 500 years ago with the protestant reformation, or 50 years ago after the Council, in a world filled with innumerable opinions and propaganda? The saints tell us very clearly that without humility there is no virtue! Jesus admonished his disciples: “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy!” (Lk 12:1).


After going through good as well as difficult experiences with the religious congregation, the Oblates of the Virgin Mary (http://o-m-v.blogspot.com/), as well as suffering a lot (even serious depression) with groups and people in the Church who did not learn from Jesus Who is “gentle and lowly in heart” (Mt 11:29) (see http://trueevangelization.blogspot.com/; http://trueevangelization.blogspot.it/2013/05/great-responsibility.html), I finally have been able to forgive these people totally from my heart and thus I have found the peace that only Jesus, “the way, the TRUTH and the life”, can give. But this does not mean that I do not make the distinction between not judging on the subjective level and judging on the objective level so as to not follow or imitate bad examples. I have slowly come to realize that these humiliations and sufferings and sorrows are masked treasures from a God who loves me immensely (see “Let Us Love Our Spouse!” at http://spir-food.blogspot.com/2008/05/let-us-love-our-spouse.html) and Who offers to help us to become detached from everything except Him Who is our only true and lasting Treasure.


I try ever more to love Jesus in each person that I encounter in each present moment while praying, especially the Rosary, as much as I can on my knees before the Most Blessed Sacrament and reading daily good spiritual writings. I have learned from the writings of the saints, including our saints of today, such as Saint Faustina, Saint Veronica Giuliani, Chiara Lubich, that true love is inseparably related to recognizing, embracing and loving Jesus crucified personally in each and every suffering and sorrow within us and outside of us in our daily lives; this is the source of TRUE FREEDOM which only God can give. “A Manuscript On Purgatory” (see http://purgatory-manu.blogspot.com/) really brings home the reality of how short life is and how long eternity is as well as how much Jesus loves each of us! We have so little time here on earth to arrive at a greater intensity of love of Jesus who loves each of us immensely even to the point of suffering and dying on the cross for each one of us personally!


The world is in pretty tough shape (http://god-politics.blogspot.com/) but God is always in charge even if He often takes the back seat and allows Satan to have a lot of freedom, in particular in the last hundred years or so, since we human beings have freely diminished our prayers and have increased our sins, thus giving more power to the forces of evil. I believe that one of the many gifts that God has give us today to help us break out of the “tyranny of relativism”, as Pope Benedict XVI puts it, is “The Testimony of Gloria Polo” (http://testimony-polo.blogspot.com/).


For many years I have been interested in studying prophecy especially as related to the current events of today; I have posted a summary of some of my studies on this topic “Catholic Prophecy Today” (http://markbeast.blogspot.com/).


God likes to crush the pride of the devil using His true and humble followers who trust totally in Him; “Jesus, I trust in you” (St. Faustina)! “In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph” (Fatima)! Alleluia!
