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 …..”
Photo: A rose petal. On it the Blessed Virgin holding Jesus is seen. One can even see little angels on the edges. These floated down from the sky in a wafting slow manner… even when the wind was blowing hard. Thousands scrambled to obtain one.
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…
German Cardinal Gerhard Muller has warned against “global players” who are against the Catholic Church because the Catholic Church is pro-life-, pro-family-, and for religious freedom.”
Talking to EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo on Thursday, the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said certain powers “want to instrumentalize this situation of the corona virus pandemic to suppress the Catholic Church.”
“The security for your life is not the only value,” he said. We have also spiritual values. We cannot isolate totally all the population. We have other illnesses and other dangers in our life, and we cannot absolutely remain in our home.”
“The state as such cannot say ‘We forbidd worshiping,” he said. “We have the fundamental religious rights, human rights, and the state must respect theserights of everybody.
The former bishop of Regensburg in Germany pointed out the contradiction between, on the one hand, saying that churches need to be closed but, on the other hand, grocery stores being allowed to remain open for business.
He asked: “Why is the danger in the church bigger than in the supermarket?”
Beyond prohibiting public Masses, “nobody has the right to forbid the priests, the shepherds, to visit the people who are dying or very ill.” As Muller explained, faithful Catholics have to right to “pastoral care in these cases”
OLYMPIA< Wash. – Epidemiologists with the Washington State Department of Health believe COVID – 10 related deaths are likely being undercounted in Washington.
In a virtual briefing with reporters Thursday, DPH officials said tracking COVID 19 death data is not an easy task.
” There are a number of nuances to the data that we report and often it is very difficult- especially quickly – to make an assessment on the cause of death,” said Dr. Katie Hutchinson, Health Statistics Manager for the Washington State Department of Health..
The state’s current COVID – 10 death count includes anyone that’s tested positive for COVID 10, officials say.
“We currently do have some deaths that are being reported that are clearly from other causes.
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)
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…
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…
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.”
Cardinal Vidal, in a 2014 letter to the Catholic Bishops of the Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said one of the”secrets” of the alleged Lipa apparition as revealed to Carmelite nun Teresita Castillo was the invasion of the Philippines and the world by China.
“Pray hard for China’s dream is to invade the whole world” Vidal quoted from the notes of Castillo on the alleged apparition at the Carmelite convent in Lipa City in 1948, a year before the Communist triumph in China and Communist leader Mao Tse-tung’s official proclamation of the Peoples Republic of China.
“Tell this to my people … I want here what I asked for at Fatima” she said and then identified herself: “I am Mary Mediatrix of all Grace”
In the interest of sticking to the main intent of this article which is to show that the distraction of Covid 19 has presented to the Chinese Communist State the opportunity of opportunities to further pursue their island building in the South China Sea, this photo speaks for itself.
Fiery Cross Reef – Wikipedia
Fiery Cross Reef, also known as “Northwest Investigator Reef”, “Yongshu Reef” . by the addition of support personnel for the new airbase, including a 3,125-metre-long (1.9m) runway and associated early warning radar site. Location: South China sea Prefecture-level city: Sansha Archipelago: Spratley Islands. Reports said that the project would cost $5 billion and take ten years, and would ultimately produce a five-square-kilometer military base June 7 1974
Island Building activity has been heating up as Covid 19 has captured the attention of the entire world.
Scientists have presented a conception of the virus , in one instance, as being made by human hands … a designer virus with the capability of one of its components to stick to the furin of the lung. This is something which a virus cannot do unless it has been manipulated. Multiple Studies Point to Chinese Biowarfare Lab in Wuhan as designer of Covid 10. The Express March 10 Callum Hoare publishing in Science Direct.
In the news of this day, it has been presented that the virus can affect the linings of the blood vessels and can cause blood clots to occur in those people who suffer from Leiden 5, a clotting disorder. Broadway star, Nick Codero, a Covid victim, who also had this disorder, in a move to save his life yesterday had his right leg amputated. Why Are So Many Covid 19 Patients Also Seeing Blood Clots? Sasha Peznel Dr. L Nedda Destmatchi abcnews.com
Whether or not it is true that the virus was intentionally released into the world by China, it is apparent that the opportunity exists for increased ‘island building’ as the worlds’ families turn their attention to the sick and suffering loved ones … victims of Covid 19.
And for a bit of time, they think of war no more.
“Tell this to my people” said Our Lady
Cardinal Vidal, who died in 2017, called on Catholics to regularly recite the rosary and pray.
Pray for China. Our Lady’s people are being persecuted for their faith, as first to go … in the population reduction plans of the New World Order.
July 5, 2020 Reblog Addition :Our Lady of Lipa who identified herself as “Mary Mediatrix of All grace” has appeared all over the world with requests from God … Who obviously is using her as the Mediatrix of All Grace. The word Mediatrix itself bears a seldom told truth. The addition of ‘trix’ is the Latin for feminine gender. She is the Lady who brings us messages from God. The Mediatrix! What a Grace That is! She is the bearer of all Grace from God.
Here at Lipa in 1948, approximately 31 years after she appeared at Fatima, she said: “I want here what I asked for at Fatima.”
Today, July 5, 2020 I have added to the above: The U.S. entered the South China Sea with war ships. Here China has been taking island after island, rebuilding each and fortifying each for military operations …. just as Mary said. They have revamped the map of the ocean with a ‘ten dash line’ claiming that all within it belongs to China. This is a tactic of Communist thinking … the false ideology of our time about which Our Lady has often spoken. In 1843 she called it by name to Sister Marie de Saint Pierre (Revelations of the Holy Face of Jesus by John Vennari)
Do you want Socialism which leads to Communism in your country?
“Pray hard for China’s dream is to invade the whole world. The Philippines is one of its favorites. Money is the evil force that will lead the peoples of the world to destruction.” said Our Lady of Lipa as she asked for what she wanted at Fatima, and, which request has been denied to her, the Queen of Heaven, by a handful of Popes and Bishops who turn their backs and even lie about the veracity of Our Lady’s apparitions.
Pope Francis, Give us the Third Secret of Fatima! Consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Oh I forgot…you don’t wish to be called Pope anymore. You have denied that you are ‘The Vicar of Christ’ in a new annual Vatican Document …. we weep and we pray for you!
The world is dying under the claws of Communism. China is Communism, the bedmate of Russia.
General Counsel Mike Berry of First Liberty Institute – an organization that assists in legal battles over religious freedom – told Church Militant, “Attorney General Barr’s strong statement of support for religious liberty, even during these unique circumstances, makes clear that our constitutional rights cannot be suspended by a pandemic.
Barstated that “government may not impose special restrictions on religous activity that do not also apply to similar nonreligious activity.”
He elaborated: “If a government allows movie theaters, restaurants, concert halls and other comparable places of assembly to remain open and unrestricted, it may not order houses of worship to close, limity their congregation size or otherwise impede religious gatherings”
Barr made clear the necessity of President Trump’s guidelines, which call on “all Americans to do their part to slow the spread of a dangerous and highly contagious virus. Those measures are important because the virus is transmitted so easily from person to person, and because it all too often has life-threatening consequences for its victims, it has the potential to overwhelm health care systems when it surges.”
The First Amendment and federal statutory law prohibit discrimation against religious institutions and religious believers.
“Even in times of emergency, he emphasized, when reasonable and temporary restrictions are placed on rights, the First Amendment and federal statutory law prohibit discrimination against religious institutions and religious believers.”
“There is no pandemic exception … to the fundamental liberties the Constitution safeguards,” the DOJ said. Indeed, individual rights secured by the Constitution do not disappear during a public health crisis.”
“America needs its churches to provide the calm, comfort and care they uniquely provide to communities across the country.” Barr said at the end of his statement.
“And the government needs churches and other houses of worship to do just that during the pandemic.”
A lone small figure stands, spotlighted in the utter emptiness of the majestic cathedral which once teemed with behatted lades, and gentlemen, all in Easter finery. Ladies in veils or charmingly flowered and veiled Easter hats. Men in perfectly creased suits and a tie, with hats in their hands. Little children gazed in wonder at the golden tabernacle where Jesus lived. Little babies cried.
That time is gone.
The time is now today.
The camera moves back to the center front and stops for a moment on the massive statue of the first Pope, St. Peter, with upholded teaching finger and the other hand holding the Bible … all stone grey and glistening like polished marble.
The camera moves back and rests its lens on the pure white cap on the head of he who it is said holds the keys of the kingdom today. His hair, once black, is crisply cut with spokes of grey coming.
There is no fluttering of the snowy white elbow length cape. It hangs silently in perfect folds. Like the silence of the rocks making up the cathedral … sounds of silence that echo in the emptiness.
He stands close to the bones of St. Peter, at a podium. It is where he, a short time ago, offered the Holy Unbloody Sacrifice of the Mass close to a bowl of mother earth. The words … ‘Thou shalt not have false gods before Me … float through my head and a feeling of fright comes over me.
The white microphones are twisted toward his mouth by a priest. A wide stole, threaded with gold, depicting pontifical and ecclesiastical images is placed across his shoulders by the master of ceremonies priest. He faces the non existent audience. He glances up, with eyes that appear to be surveying the matter of business at hand. Then he shuffles the papers before him and lifts up his hands and faces the virtual people.
The words of the papal blessing of the city and the world are sent forth to the ends of the earth. Urbi et Orbi. I do not hear them, for I do not hear. I make the Sign of the Cross. There is a tear about to fall.
Not a soul is there. The emptiness is a sound itself that shatters the sound barrier and reaches to heaven. The souls who once were there are as scattered sheep … separated … confused by the strike to the shepherd.
They are home. They are masked. They are hungry for words. Some are sick and some are dying. Some are dying devoid of the priestly words. Some priests are heartsick, unable to leap over the boundary placed around them …chained … the vigor of youthful priesthood a fading memory because of abuse by power. Their tears fall within … where the memories are … in their souls … where the power of memory is located.
I have just received the Urbi et Orbi blessing by television. The camera slowly drifts away from the figure in white. It finds a round stained glass window radiant with sunlight streaming through. It is so beautiful. A white dove in the center is sending rays of sun colored with amethyst, gold, and jasper. His wings are outspread as though in blessing.
It reminds me of the Holy Spirit. The camera lingers on the little dove and it seems to be singing… Cast your eyes on what is above in the heavens … and the word jewels from the mouth of your Christ … who left them behind for you written in a book … after he endured unspeakable torture and death on a rough Cross.
Then He rose from the dead! Then He promised us that we would do the same if we lived by His way. “I am the way, the truth, and, the life”
I return to earth from my musings and see that the camera is following the little man in white… accompanied by a small cadre of black and white vested men. No usual applause and outreaching for a touch from this man who wears the papal attire. Nothing. I think … pray for him.
God is in control. He can do anything.
He can convert the man in white just like He converted St. Paul.
“Without the priest, the death and passon of our Lord would be no use; the priest has the keys of the heavenly treasures… What is the priest? A man who holds the place of God, a man clothed with all the powers of God.”
~St John Vianney
Dedicated to all priests on this day, Thursday of Holy Week, of the institution of the holy Priesthood by Our Saviour Jesus Christ on the eve of His passion and death. The hands of the priest actually become the Hands of Jesus!
“The Beautiful Hands of a Priest” is a deeply moving poem illustrating their significance in the world (though unknown to the world) and the priceless assistance they render to the faithful, especially of how they have the blessed privilege of administering the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, thus helping us on our way to gain eternal redemption.
