All Hands on Deck


Welcome back, Everyone, with prayers for God’s blessings through the intercession of St. John Bosco whose feast we celebrate this day. While thanking God for all the good He has done at this site through Charlie, let us continue making our way through the Storm. Reflecting on the Dream of the Two Pillars, let us faithfully pray the Rosary with confidence that Our Lady Help of Christians unfailingly answers her children as she ever shines the spotlight on her Son in His Eucharistic Presence. For those who cannot go out to adore Eucharistic Jesus present in a tabernacle or monstrance, there are online sites which livestream a view of Him exposed upon the altar, such as this:Eucharistic Exposition

I trust the Grand Silence was good for all. I surely emerge from it more determined than ever to keep our focus on the reality that through this Storm which continues to surge with chaos, confusion and division, God has a Plan. As so many sherpas formed over the months via Charlie’s guidance, our commission, rooted in the Gospel, is clear: Acknowledge God, take the next right step and be a sign of hope to those around us. Trust. Do. Love. All hands on deck, Friends, for there is much work to be done in every locale all over the world, ordinary work, often inherent with suffering and always presented to God as the prayer of doing.

Surely, each of us who have been contemplating in the Silence have insights which have surfaced. I am compelled to continue striving while asking for grace – both are essential for spiritual growth – that I may be more totally surrendered to God with complete reliance on Him, fully trusting Him and His Plan which continues to unfold. Without this orientation, which is synonymous with deferring to God’s Will – not one’s own – how can anyone be of real use to Him?  How about you? What has come to you in the Silence of the last week?

I close with these highlights for your information and consideration :

*TNRS Team is equally determined to support this community that we may continue to facilitate conversations here, discussing with good will, defending our faith from without and within, and heartening one another as we follow in the footsteps of our original sherpa. I’m very grateful to collaborate with our own SteveBC as we share the daily work of clearing comments.

*In regards to commenting, a request I make is for all to carefully vet newslinks before including them with comments. Further, I think it wise to allow the reporting of each news story to develop before posting a link in hopes that facts can be verified and clarified. The choppy waters of current events (Phew!) reflects the high level of chaos, confusion and division permeating our country and world.

*TNRS Team encourages you to access the “Visit Videos” link in the black nav bar at the top of this page. The introductory paragraphs convey that the people at St. Clare Heirloom Seeds have set up two pages on their website to make available audio files and CDs and DVDs of many of Charlie’s presentations listed on that page. (We want you to know that this is a volunteer service on their part to help Charlie get his message out, and we are deeply grateful.) As we thank John and Sarah for all they have done for TNRS, please join in praying for them and their business in these days of needed intercession. Sending St. Joseph to you, John and Sarah, and praying a PMT for you and your business.

*All Glory to God that President Trump reinstated the ban on US funding for abortion overseas.

About Beckita

Beckita, widow, mother and grandmother, lives in Missoula, Montana. After more than thirty years of service, she retired from two careers: elementary school educator and director of liturgical music ministry in a local parish. Serving the Catholic Church in many capacities since early childhood, she now provides care for a nearly 90 year old priest of Chinese origin and collaborates with him in evangelizing the Chinese people. For more than twenty-five years, she has welcomed words from heaven concerning these sobering times in which we live and, like so many, takes seriously Our Lord and Our Lady’s call to intercede for the return of souls to God. Responding to heaven’s call for prayer, for her, included making pilgrimages to shrines in Europe, Asia and South America. She says these travels, added to her years as a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa in the mid-seventies, have expanded her heart to hold dear all peoples of the world. She is a longtime member of TNRS community and when she began reading Charlie’s posts, immediately, she found that his mission and message harmonize well with Church approved private revelation of our times. In September 2015, she accepted an invitation to become part of TNRS Answers Team. As events of the Storm evolved, last fall (2016), she accepted Charlie’s invitation to become managing editor of TNRS should he need to leave the site. With great gratitude to and for Charlie, founder of TNRS, and with great respect and admiration for the lifelong experiences and God-given gifts he brought to bear on his work at this site - she knows we all know he’s irreplaceable – still, she considers it a great privilege to serve the TNRS community.

    I’m sure that you USA Types who have been watching the news caught the violence, destruction and criminal roiting at UC berkly last night …. it’s just an escalation of what we have seen from the Left since last Summer. Couple that with what’s going on in DC … Rancor not seen since 1860 … Much WORSE than 1860 in many respects if you include the international scene and the modern loss of Faith, Civility and Traditions even among the, so called, upper crust of society.
    Just ’cause Charlie missed the Trump Thang is no reason to be singin’ “Happy Days”! Trump may in fact be the “catalyst” that lights the fuse … here and abroad for The 2017 Unpleasantness! PRAY, PREPARE-n-PLAN …. and keep your powder dry. Here are the “Takes” from two smart guys

    PS: I’ve come to believe that Pope Francis is some kind of fuse lighting “Catalyst” as well …. but if we do the TNRS ………… GOD WILLS IT!!

    Our Lady’s latest message to Mirjana: “Dear children, you who are striving to offer every day of your life to my Son, you who are trying to live with Him, you who are praying and sacrificing – you are hope in this peaceless world. You are rays of the light of my Son, a living gospel, and you are my beloved apostles of love. My Son is with you. He is with those who think of Him – those who pray. But in the same way, He is patiently waiting for those who do not know Him. Therefore, you, apostles of my love, pray with the heart and with your works show the love of my Son. This is the only hope for you, and this is also the only way to eternal life. I, as a mother, I am here with you. Your prayers directed to me are the most beautiful roses of love for me. I cannot but be where I sense the scent of roses. There is hope. Thank you.”

      Amen, Mo. Amen to our Mother’s message. And I love how Her words reiterate the heart of the message here. Our Lady said, “Therefore, you, apostles of my love, pray with the heart and with your works show the love of my Son.” This is synonymous with acknowledging God and taking the next right step. Our Lady closes with, “There is hope.” Indeed, may we be a sign of God’s Hope.

    Amazing picture of the White House group in prayer. It is a perfect, wordless (none required) testament to the difference between this administration and the last. All my imagination cannot summon up a similar picture coming from our previous leader.
    I was also heartened by the president’s going to be with the family as their fallen husband/son/father’s remains came home. The fact that the press was not invited made it all the more meaningful. Presence, mere presence, can be powerfully used by the Lord. Here was a recognition of the great price some of us have to pay in the battle. Such a price can never be repaid in this world, only by God in the next, but to understand and honor the sacrifice is a good thing. I believe it helps us catch a glimmer of, and to more deeply understand, what Jesus (and Mary) sacrificed for all of us.
    I did not vote for either of the major candidates. I was relieved that the other one did not ascent to the White House. My relief has been moving gradually to pleasant surprise, and to thanking God, for some of the amazing things President Trump has done the past week and a half.

    Hey Beckita, let me first say how much I like your name and Namesake! What a great saint! I am very much heartened by all that I have learned and the REAL message of Charlie’s site: Acknowledge God, take the next right step and give hope to all those around us. I have to say that I know to some extent that if the inaguration had not taken place I would have felt just a slight bit of pride, somehow that I had been in the right ball park. I do mean to emphasize that was a small temptation, but it was there. I chuckle because that is exactly what Charlie told us not to do. This would be akin to having the inside track information, making me somehow ‘special’. I chuckle at my humanness and I am so grateful that Charlie gave us clear warning not to fall into that trap. I think I have come to the conclusion that we were not meant to have it all sewn up as we thought it might be prior to the inauguration. I believe we were led to the door of trust and now we must move into that door with ever more fervor, saying without any special knowledge or insight, we must trust God alone and learn from his inspired folks like Charlie (dare I say watchman) to maintain on the road of trust. Taking responsibility for one’s relationship with God is a personal act of trust each and every day. We must make decisions each day , throughout the day, asking the Holy Spirit to guide us. And then making choices and taking responsibility for them without saying that ‘so and so told me’. I see that as an act of an adult believer. It also means, as our new President stated in his first interview, since becoming President he has turned to God more and more, because the job of President is the most powerful job in the world. And therefore Mr. Trump knows he must rely more and more on God’s help. Wow! Is this not a powerful lesson to all of us? Maybe we are not responsible for the safety and lawfulness of the US, but we are responsible for something equally as important, our soul. I have found in this last week more and more ability to just focus on trust and saying that prayer hourly, daily, Jesus teach me to trust you more and more. I have found more joy, simplicity. Another writer that i like to read, Mark Mallett warned us again to not continue to put ourselves in the way of temptation by reading all the negative websites and news sites that , quite frankly, I don’t even know who to trust anymore regarding facts. Even Pope Francis is a great mystery to me. Yet, I know one thing for absolute certainty, Jesus promised that his Church would not be destroyed by Satan and therefore no matter how weird to me our apostolic leaders get, I am grateful I can trust our Lord and his promise and move forward doing the next right thing. How grateful I am for all that. Once more I would simply say to Charlie, Thanks

    Dear Bekita & All,
    I just want to say a few things that I believe are relevant.
    First, with everything that is going on in the country and in our world I have been amazed at my own sense of calm and peace. I’ve concluded that this is only coming from Our Lord Our Lady. Don’t get me wrong there are times when I read about a tweet Trump has sent out or something in the news and I absolutely cringe. Then I wonder IS Trump an instrument of Our Lord? and I say to myself Yes. So even though the prophesy Charlie described did not happen only means that this is the way Our Lord wants it. Because he is sovereign. I back that up with the second point.

    Second, I was reminded of a post I wrote to Charlie a while ago saying “I just re-read your article “Through a Glass Darkly” and in it you were speaking of prophesy. I was near the end of reading it when one of the analysts I work with came over to show me a picture and he asked me “Kathleen is it me or does this picture look like 3-D”. I felt as if in that very moment the Lord was trying to tell me something, so I started research on what 3-D is. Matter of fact you mention two-dimensional in your article. What I came up with is that Time is a dimension in which our bodies exist in Space as three-dimensional with height, width and depth (X, Y, Z). God has HIS being outside of time and space. We are stuck inside time and space (universe). Two dimensional, which you mention is length and breadth, but no depth! What does two or three dimensions and prophesy have to do with God I asked myself? Since God is all knowing, all powerful, omnipresent and there is no time for God. God is sovereign over all things (people, places, the universe – EVERYTHING)! There Charlie I now understand why you are so very very careful about what you say because God is sovereign and you love Him so much that you would never want to mislead any of His little ones through your own speak or to displease Him in anyway. And because God is sovereign He can do, say or change anything for the good of humanity and our very salvation which He handed over to us through His Son Jesus Christ. Amen!”

    Third, the words from Jonah “Forty more days and Nineveh will be destroyed” kept coming to me. So I looked it up and in Jonah Chapter 3 sums it all up. To refresh everyone’s memory here is the Chapter:
    3 Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time: 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.”
    3 Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. 4 Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” 5 The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.
    6 When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh:
    “By the decree of the king and his nobles:
    Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.”
    10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened.

    Interestingly enough the Word that the Lord gave Jonah did not happen. So as we all note, Charlie’s prophesy did not happen and I personally believe it may be because of our prayers and sacrifices were pleasing to Our Lord who is sovereign.

    My last thought here before ending this long text is to remind everyone that Mike Pence took his oath of office on the following verse (I read this on Spirit Daily). 2Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

    Okay all you Next Right Steppers – let’s get ready to HUMBLE !

      Charlie has indeed said that when the electorate went to Trump, some of the Storm was mitigated. He did not say the Storm was ended, which we can see for ourselves just watching the news. God is not doing nothing. God is doing something new.

      Charlie did say that certain events would call him back, and a coup that causes the government to fall would be one possibility. However, a general rise in violence will not. The idea that the military is now the good guys for Ms. Silverman strikes me as saying more about her than about our military, which under no circumstance I can think of will engage in a coup against the Constitutional order to save Ms. Silverman.

    Donald J. Trump just released this statement for #CatholicSchoolsWeek!

    “In recognition of National Catholic Schools Week, I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to all of the dedicated Catholic school administrators, teachers, priests, and support organizations who work tirelessly to build and sustain quality Catholic schools across the Nation.

    “The theme of this year’s National Catholic Schools Week is ‘Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service.’ I appreciate the many ways in which Catholic schools nurture devotion, impart wisdom, and minister to the 2 million students who enter their halls every day. and to the diverse communities they serve.

    “Congratulations for the tremendous work you have done to educate our Nation’s youth each and every day. Your continued and sustained efforts are vital to our success and prosperity as a country.



    Trump promised during his campaign to give churches their voice back and that is EXACTLY what he is doing. Thank you President Trump and God bless you for this!

    Like so many others I do miss my friend Charlie but understand completely his self alienation. I have not deterred from his work and continue to stay focused on God’s ways. I do at times get nervous when I see all the commotion in the streets but that is nervous energy. I being human have been taught by charlie and the next right steppers to trust in God, be a sign of hope to others and do the next right thing so I stop in the midst of questions and immediately say the words that ground me, Jesus I surrender to you, you take care of it. Recently I have taken the oath of being Consecrated to Jesus through Mary again this year. i have noticed the above prayer has been changed to Mother Mary I surrender myself to you, you take care of it. Since Momma makes my prayer perfect and gives it to Jesus. As I go through my daily life now as I am retired I find myself worrying I’m not doing enough. I then am reminded to just be, my time is coming. All must happen in Jesus time, all people will show they’re true colors, all people will be aligned with the powers they have chosen, my job and ours is to pray without ceasing even if it’s a lot of “Mother you take care of it and why not Our Lord knows best”.
    Beckita, you are doing a wonderful job and I will keep you and all in my daily prayers, can’t help it you are all close to my heart.

    It’s a little late to comment on this post but I have always thought that present events are about the whole world and not just the USA. I reflect back on how many lies the MSM and the last administration lied. The Obama team did back the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and mightily tried to unseat Netanyahu at his last election in Israel. They put teams on the ground in both places and spent money to influence the outcome. And, then, of course, was that lie about Benghazi. In any case, a few days ago an interview of a Flemish priest who lives in Syria (Aleppo) was published. His view on the destruction of Syria is quite astonishing. Here’s the link it is a revelation on what we (USA) are doing there, how we are viewed, and how once again the question “lied to” comes into play.

      Joanne1950, thank you for this link. I did have to edit it. The web site appears not to be but Please check the link to make sure it is the article you wanted.

      The entire Syrian conflict was created outside Syria, as far as I can tell. The Saudis wanted to build a pipeline to Europe, and it had to go through Syria, a client state of Russia’s. Since such a pipeline was an existential geopolitical threat to Russia, they have helped the Syrian government resist this. Also, from what I can gather, the Libyan war was cooked up by Hillary Clinton so that the US could grab all the weapons Libya had and ship them to their client groups in Syria to arm them, when the US population wouldn’t stand for the US to do that. Very convoluted and frankly evil, and very much due to the previous administration’s kowtowing to Saudi money. Honestly, I can’t know this is all true, but numerous credible sources have covered it all. And your remarks just add more to the picture.
