(One of my most trusted confidants recently shared with me a word that had come to her in prayer and meditation. While contemplating the explosion of demonic activity causing division and confusion this last year, the word, “Betrayal” hit her powerfully and insistently. It was not just that people are being or will be betrayed, but that people will sense betrayal where there is none – or only mistakes. Either way, the devil gets the division he seeks.
I think she is right on target that this is a primary tool of the satan as things continue to darken. I ask you to be slow to anger or defensiveness. (Yes, I know, I can use that advice myself a lot of times). After yet another mass attack by Jihadists, Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch went to break bread with Muslims to tell them she stands with them and will prosecute those who criticize them harshly. Feels like a betrayal to those who wish the American Atty. Gen. would stand for Americans who were massacred. While denying there is any Jihadi problem and refusing to effectively combat them, President Obama and the lockstep left demand more “gun control” as the answer. Feels like a betrayal who think our top officials might spend a bit more time de-clawing the predators rather than demanding that the prey disarm themselves.
These are real betrayals. But the sense of betrayal is what is driving some criticism of the Pope these days, too. I have a piece coming up on this. On matters the Pope is not responsible for, he too often is misinformed. But on Magisterial matters, he is solid. Events of the last year have demonstrated that there are some very bad actors holding office in the Vatican. They obviously influence the Pope, but it is not the Pope who is actively supporting groups that advocate for population control, socialism, and Gaia-worshippers. I would that it was clearer that he is not captive to advisors who do. But hold steady. This is only for a time. Pope Francis, besides being the validly elected reigning Pope, is the man God has chosen to lead us through this Storm. The seeming disorders of the moment play a key role in God’s plan. Hold steady and you will see a plan blossom over the next two years you could never have imagined. Trust God.
I am going to ask now for something I asked for about a year ago – your prayers. No, I am not suffering or anything like it. But we have shifted gears in world affairs. What was efficacious for last year is not the same as for this year…and I worry about handling things properly to call the most people back to trust in God, fidelity to Him, and steadfast resolve in taking the next right step as darkness swirls around us. I have struggled a little in getting started. For now, you get a few other things – but on Tuesday, which is the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception and the center of the Novena to Our Lady of Tepeyac, I will begin seriously on the Family of God theme that will dominate for a while – even if I do it badly at first.
Today, I put up a post by our friend, Dan Lynch, for these times.

On December 2, terrorists attacked and massacred people celebrating a holiday party at their place of business in San Bernardino, California. On the very same day, Jesus King of All Nations revealed a message for us to “Awake! A great catastrophe is about to befall you!”
Jesus told us, “I have told you of the remedy. That of the public practice of My devotion and veneration of My image. Let as much as can still be done to bring this about be done. Let those who are able enthrone My image in their homes, parishes and dioceses.”
So, as Jesus requested, let each of us do as much as we can! Jesus wants the bishops and the faithful to do all that they can for public approval of his devotion. You can do the following: practice the devotion; enthrone the image in your homes and pray the devotional prayers for the intention of the bishops’ public approval of the devotion. You can learn all of that here: http://www.jkmi.com/jesus-king-of-all-nations
Below is the complete message of Jesus. He gave the message to His “Secretary”, the mystic of the devotion, and her priest-theologian spiritual advisor approved it for publication.
OUR LORD: “Awake! Lift up your heads My people! Do you not see the signs all around you?! A great catastrophe is about to befall you!
“And he said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke!” (Luke 24:25)
Let My bishops take up My devotion of Jesus, King of All Nations, for it has been given as a remedy and a protection in these most dangerous times!
“Shall I not open for you the floodgates of heaven, to pour down blessing upon you without measure?” (Malachi 3:10)
Is it not clear what is taking place? Violence and godlessness increase daily. Hatred and a complete disrespect for life grows wantonly. There is no sense of sin or of the Divine throughout the earth! What is about to descend upon mankind is due to his great sinfulness.
I have warned you time and time again but you still refuse to listen and My Holy Church does not recognize the urgent need of the approval of My devotion!
“Why do these people rebel with obstinate resistance? Why do they cling to deceptive idols, refuse to turn back? I listen closely: they speak what is not true; No one repents of his wickedness, saying, “What have I done!” Everyone keeps running his course, like a steed dashing into battle.” (Jeremiah 8:5-6)
I have told you of the remedy. That of the public practice of My devotion and veneration of My image. Let as much as can still be done to bring this about be done. Let those who are able enthrone My image in their homes, parishes and dioceses.
“Behold, I will treat and assuage the city’s wounds; I will heal them, and reveal to them an abundance of lasting peace. …. They shall be in fear and trembling over all the peaceful benefits I will give her.” (Jeremiah 33:6,9)
You see I AM infinitely merciful and accept a smaller amount than My justice requires. This is the pre-eminence of My Divine Mercy. It is My greatest Divine attribute.
“Though our living Lord treats us harshly for a little while to correct us with chastisements, he will again be reconciled with his servants.” (2 Maccabees 7:33)
Heed My Words My bishops, My prelates and afford your flocks the offered graces of mercy and protection!
“Woe to My foolish shepherd who forsakes the flock!” (Zechariah 11:17)
Do all that you possibly can!
Do not be afraid of the opinion of man, fear rather displeasing your God!”
“Do not despise prophetic utterances. Test everything; retain what is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21)
Let us move forward steadfastly together into the storm…keep calm and carry on!” (Winston Churchill).
“In the shadow of your wings I take refuge till the storms of destruction pass by.” (Psalm 57).
