One Interrogation of Teresita Castillo, the Seer of Lipa

This is an update to this story of Teresita. Since publishing this I have received new information. Her interrogation by Father Angelo de Blas, who was her Priest Psychiatrist, and who obviously, I believe after reading his journal, did not intend to hit her with the ash tray, but was looking for a reaction.  He probably aimed to miss. Here is his statement as written in his newly discovered journal at the St. Tomas Hospital in Manila:  “Teresita’s trances are quite similar to those experienced by certain hysterical people but they do not differ much from what some Saints have experienced.  As can be seen in Dr. Pardo’s report, Teresita does not show a hysterical personality of any known type and in all manifestations proves to possess a normal personality.  I intervened together with Dr. Pardo in the examination that he carried out to determine the normality of Teresita and I am of the same opinion as that of the mentioned doctor.” Fr. Angel de Blas’ Journal on the 1948 Lipa Phenomenon


“Then he go mad with me … Mayroong diyan … there was an ashtray there and he took hold of it …..”

This article is a sample of the aggressive stance the Vatican II and others before them have taken against this apparition, and, particularly against giving Mary the title of ‘Mary Mediatrix of All Grace’ which is what she called herself at Lipa.  Just like she said at Lourdes:  “I am the Immaculate Conception”    She said at Lipa: “I am Mary Mediatrix of All Grace”


The postulant Teresita was picked up in a car by Monsignor Santos and, chaperoned by Sister…

The Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Las Lajas by Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC

In 1754, an event took place in Colombia that continues to baffle geologists and other scientists.  This event was the miraculous appearance of the image of Our Lady of Las Lajas (Our Lady of the Rocks)

Have you heard of it?  Most Catholics outside of Columbia are completely unaware of its existence.  To be honest, I had never heard of it either until a few years ago.  I came across the story of this incredible image while doing research for my book   Champions of the Rosary:  The History and Heroes of a Spiritual Weapon  (

All my friends know that I absolutely love leading pilgrimages.

In fact several times a year I lead pilgrimages to such places as Rome, Lourdes, Fatima, Guadalupe, Poland, and the Holy Land.  One place I’ve never been on pilgrimage is Colombia.  But after I learned about the miraculous image of Our Lady of…

The Political Dimension of Sacred Heart Devotion

By Solange Hertz who is universally regarded as one of traditional Catholicism’s foremost contemporary writers and lecturers.


Solange Hertz

When Longinus plunged his spear into the Sacred Body publicly exposed on the cross, he struck the heart of a King.  Christ the King!

Every time a Catholic priest performs the Consecration at Mass, the Heart of Christ the King is present on the altar of sacrifice.  Whole and entire the Body, Blood, Flesh and Divinity of the King !  The Word made Flesh !

The sign above the thorn-crowned Head of the Man enthroned on the Cross read plainly:  “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.

Longinus was the agent of secular authority doing his duty which was to make sure the Man was dead, or to kill Him if he were not. Longinus was the ‘state.’

The Sacred fountain of Blood and water which gushed forth continues to do so to this day , sanctifying all the King’s willing subjects … those who search for the…

Elizabeth Taylor Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

In Act IV of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, Petruchio insists that his new wife Katherina submit her mind to his.

In mid-afternoon, Petruchio proclaims that it’s actually 7:00am. He demands that Katherina concede this. “It shall be what o’clock I say it is!”

Petruchio’s friend Hortensio comments: “Why, so this gallant will command the sun.”

Let’s imagine a courtroom scene. The members of the jury file into the box, having completed their deliberations.

The judge asks the foreman, “Have you reached a verdict?”

“Yes, Your Honor. We find the defendant not guilty!”

So the judge says to the accused: “Very well. You will retain the title of ‘free man.’ Your prison uniform will read ‘free man’ across the back of the shirt. Now, bailiff, cuff him, and take him to San Quentin.”

Yesterday, locksmiths under the direction of…
