In light of what happened on April 15, 2019, I thought I would write a history of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame of Paris. The fire that engulfed this magnificent building at first appeared to be devastating. While the church did sustain a great deal of damage, there is enough of the edifice remaining for restoration […]
Messages from Heaven to a holy, elderly Carmelite Nun, faithful to her Carmelite vows, known to me, whom I shall call Sister John Francis. I publish from her handwriting …
Our Lady’s Christmas Message 1966 “I am Our Lady of the Immaculate Heart.”
” I see that My people have become wiser and they are no longer concerned with their own unwise ways. Others seek their own ways in the darkness of satan I am Mary, the Mother of God. I warn you, all my children … I was able to hold back the avenging angels from moving since 1960 Now must I see them moving over the earth in this program of destruction which shall cause fear to all hearts.?”
Pope St. Pius X Appears radiating God’s Light to Man “Out of darkness I saw a figure seated on a chair. He alone was in sight. All around him was darkness. The figure I saw was Pius X. There was not doubt of it.”
I heard the voice say (about Pius X) ‘ ” He radiated God’s light to men for his soul was in the Light of His God ‘ ”
“I next saw a series of churchmen. They came one after another and they were in various degrees of light. Our Blessed Lord used these churchmen to show how his light was leaving the Church over a long period of time as these churchment forgot the mission they were sent for … to bring forth souls to God.”
“While these church men were in their various stages of light running to lesser light … I saw the features of some people who were in this darkness. They would move like a circle around until they were overshadowed by these churchmen. Some were of light, some of darkness … these churchmen.”
“Then I saw the agonizing face of our Blessed Lord, just His face; it was bruised and it’s look would cause a stone to break”
“Then I saw Him at the scourging. This was hard to look upon. It faded away when I saw other scenes of our Blessed Lord that passed too rapidly to concentrate on. ”
Jesus: “It shall take another hundred years to purify it and make it once more a Holy Church, a Catholic Church, whose identifying mark shall once more be that it is Holy unto its’ God because my light has returned to it. ”
Despite this darkness of my Church, you children have won (1966 ) a victory for my Holy Mother. My Father can no longer say no to your love for my Mother. It is too overwhelming. He gives to My Mother more time. He shall allow Her way of love to prevail. I want now only to see you spread my Mother’s love over the earth. My Father holds back the avenging angels. They shall no longer move. You have now My Holy Mother. Draw your children to My Heart as only you can, O loving Mother of your God.”
“I am Our Lady of the Immaculate Heart.”
Serve My holy Mother in all love now that you have gained for Her such a victory from your God.”
Our Lady: “I come to the wicked world of sin, foulness … the cesspool of filth, and it matters not. I come to snatch you from your own darkness of hearts and minds as you live lives apart from your living God. I have come to earth to draw you to my Heart, .and into the light of love of your loving God,
Ever since satan’s fall from grace the greatest happiness he finds is to lead souls away from God, damning them for all eternit. His time is growing short. I shall not let him continue to enslave my people.
The eighth prophecy spoken by your loving God is at this time reaching fulfilment. What your loving Jesus told in 1960 of the eighth prophecy is now unfolding on earth.
And this shall be a sign spoke the Lord jesus;
“There shall unfold ten prophesies before the third world war shall be upon your day.” No nation shall emerge victorious.
The words of Our Lady of LaSalette, and so many other apparitions convey the same message as those of Our Lady of the Immaculate Heart to Sister John Francis.
The calls of Her Heart resound with a battle cry, a most certain trumpet of sound from heaven to earths’ children to live their lives in the ways she has given and to resist evil.
“Who is she that comes forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array?” Song of Solomon 6:10
We must get them to worship “Forces” while denying the existence of “spirits” …..
My Dear Wormwood,
We are really faced with a cruel dilemma. When the humans disbelieve in our existence we lose all the pleasing results of direct terrorism and we make no magicians.
On the other hand, when they believe in us, we cannot make them materialists and skeptics.
At least, not yet.
I have great hopes that we shall learn in due time how to emotionalize and mythologize their science to such an extent that what is, in effect a belief in us, (although not under that name) will creep in while the human mind remains closed to belief in the Enemy.
The “Life Force,” the worship of sex, and some aspects of Psychoanalysis, may here prove useful. If once we can produce our perfect work – the Materialist Magician, the man, not using, but veritably worshipping what he vaguely calls “Forces” while denying the existence of “spirits” – then the end of of the war will be in sight….
Once you have made the world an end, and faith a means, you have almost won your man, and it makes very little difference what kind of worldly end he is pursuing.
Provided that meetings, pamphlets, policies, movements, causes and crusades, matter more to him than prayers, sacraments and charity, he is ours.
I could show you a pretty cageful down here,
Your affectionate uncle, Screwtape

“Palliative care given in very high doses represents a quicker way to end a life deemed without quality or purpose…” By Judie Brown May 7, 2019 https://www.all.org/2019/05
Palliative care was originally understood to be the practice of offering relief and comfort to a suffering or dying patient. Today “one is well-advised to be skeptical of a referral to palliative care” http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/whi/whi_03palliativecarepatients.html Lone Whitlock
Why? Because in essence, it has become just another weapon in the toolbox of those whose goal it is to excuse the very ill from life.
Current examples help us see the many twists and turns that have taken place over the years when it comes to treating the chronically ill and the dying.
Just recently it was reported that Doctors are performing a procedure called “death by donation,” which means that organs are harvested from a living patient, thus rendering him dead.
When a doctor removes a vital organ … the patient dies. This is one way to eliminate the pain he is experiencing. Killing is the definitive pain killer.
And here is where we, perhaps the future sick patient, and/or the future anxious worrying family come in:
Texas has a bill up for consideration which we, by informing our Senators of its’ existence, can draw their attention to it. Would you like to see this bill introduced in your own state? I would.
In the state of Texas, pro-life Senate Bill 2089 SB2089 is up for consideration right now. This proposal would undo the negative effects of the Texas Advance Directive Act. https://kassiblog.blogspot.com/2019/ TADA violates the personal liberties of conscience among those who do not ascribe to euthanasia practices. How? In this way:
The 10 Day Law in Texas states that a patient and his or her legal surrogate have a mere 10 days to arrange an emergency transfer to another facility that would be willing to continue treatment if they wish. Such a transfer is often extraordinarily complicated in such cases, and there are no practical means under the 10-Day-Law for a typical patient to stop the ticking on his or her own.
In 2014 a statement by the Belgian Society of Intensive Care Medicine asserts that ‘shortening the dying process’ should be permissible with the use of medication even in the absence of discomfort.
When discussing these facts, two prominent physicians, one from the Netherlands and another from Harvard, told me that where they come from, “they call that murder.”
We hope and pray that SB2089 becomes law so that the vulnerable can once again be protected in the Lone Star State instead of ushered out of life if the 10 days expire.
Too many within the healthcare community embrace philosophies and practices that threaten those patients who truly need relief from suffering so that they can live the balance of their lives in comfort rather than literally being put down like dogs by any means possible.
We must be clear: Ventilators and feeding tubes keep patients comfortable. They are not extreme.
But perhaps the unspoken idea here is that palliative medication, when given in very high doses, represents a better use of resources and a quicker way to end a life deemed without quality or purpose.
Now we see that the new trend in end-of-life care appears to be the use of artificial intelligence for those facing their final weeks, months, or more. One report tells us that chatbots may become the wave of the future if it can be determined that “patients might be more inclined to share their symptoms or ask questions when no other human is present.” https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/13/an-artificial-intelligence-created-for-the-end-of-life-is-already-here.html.
In addition, we see another type in an algorithm that can identify candidates for palliative care by predicting when they will die.
Charbots, algorighms, pain medications, and on it goes.
It seems that no matter what method is employed to treat the suffering and the dying, medicine is not what it used to be. Death is the goal and it is painfully clear that death is the definitive painkiller.
UPDATE: The usual suspects double down in opposition to this pro life bill:
The Papal document ‘On Human Fraternity,’ recently put forth by Pope Francis, actually professes that each is free to profess the religion he likes and even not to profess any at all.”
“On February 4, 2019, at Abu Dhabi, Pope Francis and the Grand Iman of Al Azhar, Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, signed the document on ‘Humanity Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.’
The declaration opens in the name of a God, who, if he has to be a God common to all, cannot be anything other than the Allah of Muslims.
The God of Christians, in fact, is one in nature, but Triune in persons, equal and distinct, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Since the time of Arius and thereafter, the Church has been battling the anti-Trinitarians and the Deists who deny, or set aside, this mystery, which is Christianity’s greatest.
Islam, on the contrary, rejects it in horror, as the Sura”of authentic worship” proclaims: “He, God, is one God, the Eternal One! He will not generate, nor was He generated…
Actually, in the Abu Dhabi declaration, worship is not given either to the God of Christians or to the God of Islam, but to a secular divinity, “human fraternity, which embraces all men, unites them and renders them equal.”
We are not dealing here with the ‘spirit of Assisi – which in its syncretism recognizes, nonetheless, the primacy of the religious dimension over that of the seculist – but with an affirmation of indifference.
In no point, in fact, is a fundamental metaphysic of the values of peace and fraternity mentioned, but these are continually referred to.
The document, when it affirms that: “pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings,” does not profess the ecumenism condemned by Pius XI in ‘Moratalium Animos, (1928), but the religions indifferentism, condemned by Leo XIII in the encyclical Libertas (June 20, 1928), which he defines “as a doctrinal system teaching each is free to profess the religion he likes and even not to profess any at all.”
