All Things Are Being Revealed

Jonah under the gourd

By Charlie Johnston

What a wonderful celebration of the centennial of the penultimate Fatima apparition! Our Archbishop consecrated the entire Archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Some Parishes held their own special Mass – and 73 Parishes live-streamed the consecration from the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Denver. I went to Mass at the Cathedral at 5:30 on Friday, then stayed in Eucharistic Contemplation until the Holy Hour preceding the Consecration began at 7:30. During that time, I prayed for each member of my extended family by name, thinking of our joys and sorrows together. I prayed for all on the TNRS Team by name – and all of the regional coordinators, fondly remembering our times together. I prayed for the Priests who have guided me, both as directors and as friends, and for the Bishops who have done the same. It was a wonderful time of recollection. I prayed for renewal, renewal of my own heart and of our poor battered, bleeding world.

The True Division

I had been unusually depressed the last few weeks as so many things seemed to be coming to a head. After the hideous massacre in Las Vegas, the usual suspects lined up to lecture us that the only moral solution to such tragedies is to disarm more victims. Bizarre…not even a rational approach, much less a moral one. The more a society shows itself to be unable to defend its citizens, the more critical it is that they be prepared to defend themselves. The NFL self-righteously protests a negligible problem while lifting nary a finger to help with a huge one. Whites killing blacks amounts to less than 1 percent of all annual killings. Blacks killing blacks constitute almost 60 percent of such statistics. (Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute has done exhaustive research on this subject). NFL players, particularly black players, could be powerful role models going into the inner cities in the off-season, helping to support black churches and encouraging people to get married, stay married, be there for their kids, and work hard at education. The reality is that, outside of inner cities, Black and Hispanic crime rates mirror that of the larger society. We don’t have a serious racial problem – we have a serious behavioral problem, centered in inner-city ghettoes that are centers of hopeless dependency and disorder. The anti-God left is doing its best to whip it up into a racial divide, perhaps to hide the fact that nearly all the hellish centers of such disorder have been governed for half a century by leftists who dream of bringing their “success” to the whole country. I am not sure whether to be offended by NFL players for their offense or to be sorry for them for being so easily used in what Dennis Prager calls the greatest libel since the blood libel. It doesn’t matter much to me: I ended 31 years as an enthusiastic fan last year when the NFL refused to let the Dallas Cowboys honor slain police officers while enabling Colin Kaepernik’s honoring of cop-killers and contempt for America. I won’t be going back to the NFL whatever happens, for the players have revealed how shallowly vapid they are and what contempt they hold for their fans. Perhaps a new Patriot League will arise, and then I can enjoy professional football once more.

The true divide can only be between people who try to live honorably and criminals. The justice system needs overhauling in a multitude of respects. Violent criminals are repeatedly released to go on to greater violence. Inner city murders of black folks are rarely solved – which leads criminals to think it is not taken seriously and they can get away with murder. They are right. It is unjust that a suburban white kid gets a competent lawyer, while inner city black kids usually get over-burdened and inexperienced public defenders. But if your sole solution is to give inner city kids better lawyers without addressing the toxic fatherlessness and Godless culture they are mired in, getting them better lawyers will only enable more violence. When I was doing radio back in the early 90’s I spoke with a prominent sociologist in the state one day. Citing statistics on recidivism among juvenile offenders, I noted that the only programs which showed some positive results were faith-based programs, so why did the state completely avoid such programs. To my astonishment, she agreed that they were the only effective programs, but because they brought up God, they were oppressive and could not be used. I asked in disbelief if she really would prefer to condemn young offenders to unremitting misery than expose them to God. “It’s only fair,” she said. It was one of those moments where I thought, “We’re going to need a bigger boat.” The reality is that to the secular left, God is not the answer: He’s the competition.

Then the Harvey Weinstein story broke. It proved that none of the Hollywood poseurs actually believe Donald Trump is a tyrant. Faced with an actual tyrant who had real power over their lives and careers, they cowered before him and covered for him. Like in their movies, they are not actually courageous, but can pretend to be courageous when playing to an applauding crowd. It struck me that hearts are being revealed. That process is nearly complete. Things are coming to a head. I haven’t even mentioned North Korea or the decertification of the Iran deal (though I am grimly amused to hear seemingly sober people solemnly say that if we don’t use the same plan that made North Korea a rogue nuclear state, we risk war. Do these people even listen to themselves?) The truth is that, while secular leftists claim the idea of sin is oppressive, they are actually expanding the definition of sin: they just want to be the enforcers. George Neumayr wrote a marvelous piece explaining how the left simply wants to replace the real God, who is steady, just and compassionate, with a statist god, which is shriekingly arbitrary and capricious. The left has succeeded in melding a libertinism that would make Caligula blush with a harsh puritanism that would shame John Calvin.

A quarter of a century ago I told my Priests that the Storm would be like a “global civil war fought on cultural lines,” and that “the Storm would break through North Korea but not be centered in North Korea.” Seventeen years ago I wrote that we had begun the process that would lead to the collapse of the rule of law – that law would become perverted to be just another partisan tool in the grasping clutch for power. Just three years ago I wrote a mournful piece on this site, stating that Republican control of Congress would not stop the trajectory of our disorder as there was no longer a political solution possible to what ails us. Over the summer, I thought longingly of setting up camp in the mountains near a stream and sitting out the Storm. I waited for the shrieking madness that followed Trump’s Inauguration to abate. Yet the Storm only gathers force, and the shrieking madness continues to rise. Things are gathering to a head.

Though we have gotten here in ways that I often did not expect, we are in the “world gone mad” I was shown way back in the early 60’s and that seemed so utterly unbelievable to me. Heaven knows, if a modern-day Rumplestiltskin went to sleep in 1962 and woke up today, he would think he had been transported to a Bizarro universe where the elites all think good is evil and evil, good. So many have completely lost the capacity to ever find happiness, only perpetual grievance and rage. They rage against God, they rage against family…which are the real keys to finding happiness. I have to concede the devil has done his work effectively. I promised long ago that if these times came I would defend the faith, hearten the faithful, and defend the faithful. I know that however unfaithful we are, God is ever true to His promises. A century ago, Our Lady promised that, “in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” I haven’t made my last mistake. But God willing, so long as I draw breath, I will do my best to defend the faith, hearten the faithful, and defend the faithful, for I know His promises are altogether true.

Travels With Charlie

I will spend all of November in the Southwest and on the West Coast. I currently have events scheduled in Houston, Santa Fe, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. While I am willing to do formal presentations, it is not necessary. I just finished a swing of home visits in Kansas City; Springfield, Missouri; Lake Charles, Louisiana; San Antonio and Dallas. I am more interested in encouraging people to be watchful, to not despair, and to be prepared to hearten their neighbors and help each other in extreme circumstances. This simple way, always focused on the next right step while acknowledging God, is the way we act as heralds of Rescue and hope. If you would like to arrange a visit, whether formal or informal, contact Mary at lovedbyhim1026@gmail.com.

I had an amazing encounter during my presentation in Lake Charles a few weeks back. There was a young moderately autistic woman there. (She could have been 14, she could have been 24: it can be hard to tell with autistic people). She was a pretty girl. As I began speaking, she mirrored my every move and facial expression. She did not do it with a half-second delay; she did it simultaneously with me. It was amazing. After a few minutes, her mother moved to stop her. I told her Mom that if there were private reasons she had for discouraging this, that was fine, but if she was just worried about offending me, I found it charming. She asked if I was sure. So the girl, April, mirrored me throughout my talk. Afterwards, I told her how very good she was at it and she gave me a big hug. It was interesting how soothing it seemed to be for all of us.

Many of you know that Nancy Davidson, a long-time commenter here and one of my coordinators in South Dakota, recently passed on after a brief bout with pancreatic cancer. I spoke to her by phone after she received the diagnosis and sent her a note. I was only able to speak to her once before it got too bad. Her dear friend, Kris Rehfeld kept me apprised of her condition. When I got home there was a letter in the box for me from Nancy, penned just before she died. It was the only time I have ever gotten that particular sort of letter from beyond. It was filled with complete trust in God – and the next right step for each of us. I pray that Nancy is already in heaven and, if she is, I know she is interceding right now for every one of us in the TNRS family.

I had another surprise in the mailbox. A Christian artist from Montgomery, Alabama, sent me the gorgeous abstract painting of Our Lady of Fatima that appears to the side here. She is Joanie Conoly. She said that my work had inspired her to do paintings of Our OL of Fatima, joanie conolyLady and, knowing my devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, she sent this to me. Sadly, pictures do not do her work justice. In photos, the paintings appear a bit flat and mundane. In real life, they are absolutely gorgeous with rich texture and delicately precise detail. I was flabbergasted by how beautiful it is. It now hangs in a place of honor above the fireplace.

The Video Short Planned Parenthood Does Not Want You to See

Imagine an undercover journalist got film of a criminal gang planning a hit – and speaking about it all in an open, public place. When the journalist turned the film over to authorities, what do you think would happen? They would arrest the criminals, right? Well, not if you are in the bizarre world of California. When David Daleiden got film of abortion activists talking with each other like murderous Dr. Mengele’s at a National Abortion Federation (NAF) Conference in California a few years back, San Francisco Federal Judge William Orrick slapped a gag order on the videos. His reasoning was that what the abortionists said was so toxic that, if it became public, it would endanger the safety of the abortion activists. By that reasoning, any nefarious scheme caught on tape could be censored. In America, we have traditionally sided with the whistleblowers who expose nefarious schemes rather than with the nefarious schemers. But Judge Orrick and his wife are radically pro-abortion and have ties to the abortion industry. Orrick seems to have chosen to use his position to act as muscle for the abortion industry. Welcome to the collapse of the rule of law.

When the California Atty. Gen. chose to indict Daleiden and his partner, Sandra Merrick, for taping these exchanges (charges that have NEVER been filed against anyone else taping in a public place in California before: in fact, Planned Parenthood worked with the California Legislature to change the laws to make these charges possible), the San Francisco Superior Court made the videos part of the public record. So Daleiden’s attorneys provided links to them. Orrick was outraged. No stinking little state court was going to defy his mighty power. They began threatening Youtube and every outlet that had the videos embedded with contempt sanctions if they did not pull them down. In fact, I got a threatening letter as I had published a link to a Youtube video of the short preview. It worked. Every public site pulled the video. What Planned Parenthood and its allies most dread is you seeing what they say and do when they think no one is listening.

Enter Congressman Mark Walker of North Carolina, Chairman of the Republican Study Committee. He put the video preview up on an official public government site right here. Now I am not embedding the video on my site, simply linking to a public government site. So if that parody of a judge, William Orrick, wants to cite anyone for contempt, he will have to cite the U.S. House of Representatives, which has a little more heft than a stinking little state court (even if it doesn’t always act like it) You can go to the government site to see what Planned Parenthood wants to hide from you. And keep in mind…this is just the tip of the iceberg of what Orrick has hidden on the abortionists’ behalf.

    This song came to mind. When I was on the RCIA team (for 10 years), we sang this during our retreats for catechumens and candidates. It is comforting.

          Oh Patrick, Dear Musician, you will LOVE the music. I first discovered this style of singing prayer back in the 80’s when I would attend the National Pastoral Musician conventions. Breakout day sessions involved workshops, including the sampling of new musical literature with the original composers leading the singing. Can you imagine, Patrick, thousands of Catholic Church musicians gathered from all over the country, raising their voices and instruments in song? Goosebumping beauty with exquisite harmonies and instrumentation all around. At night, when pitch black, the churches in whatever big city we had met would keep lights off and fill their sacred spaces with hundreds of candles and orchestral instruments. We would enter the various churches in silence and keep silence but for the instruments beckoning our meditative, joy-filled, worshiping voices to praise God and sing of His Infinite Goodness.

    Thank you for heartening me. I heard a most bizarre comment this past Wednesday from a priest here in our parish . He is young and from Poland which, in my estimation, makes it that much more bizarre. He was asked if he would say a few words to our confirmation class about Our Lady of Fatima. His answer? “Oh, she is not one of my favorites.” And so he declined. I’m still shaking me head.

      I was standing before the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Rapid City cathedral), showing Fr. Mike a photo I took of the icon awash in brilliant red light from a sunrise. What made this fact interesting was picture was taken on Holy Thursday. I said to him, “It’s Our Lady of Sorrows.”

      Thinking perhaps that I was a little daft, he paused, and said, “It’s….uh…Our Lady of Perpetual Help.” Then the woman standing with us said to him scoldingly, “It’s the same Lady!” (We laughed. It was a light moment – he knew what I was getting at)

        My parish is Our Lady of Perpetual Help. I grew up looking upon this picture/Icon that was above the altar and the many changes made over the years from the Latin mass to the current vernacular mass. I made my 1st Communion and Confirmation under the gaze of Our Lady Of Perpetual Help. She has been the one constant, Perpetual if you will ( not excluding her son, Our Lord, Jesus or God the Father). I have her image on my iPad, so when my mind wonders ( I struggle with this) when I’m saying my rosary, I bring her image up to help me focus. I really love this image of her❤️

        • Me too, Omarie! The more I look upon it, the more I love it. It’s fascinating how this style of art makes it so no matter where in the church you sit, she is looking directly at you with such tenderness. I hope you can come to Rapid City some day to see this particular icon. It is truly magnificent. This work is endorsed as “official” and is either the largest OLPH icon in North America or, possibly, the entire world. Our image is larger than the original, as I recall. Here are pics of the image with the lights on to contrast with my pic of the fiery, red sunlight reflecting off the gold when the lights were out.

    Charlie, I attended your presentation in Medford Massachusetts when I first learned of you. Your talk woke me up (or maybe I should say shook me up) and I realized I needed to make prayer a center part of my life, and I took up saying the Liturgy of the Hours which I have remained faithful to. So I wanted to sincerely thank you for that. You mentioned you will be traveling again and I hope you will consider visiting the East Coast. You assessment in this article is spot on, but I don’t understand how this fits in with a Rescue in 2017. Due you still believe the Rescue will happen this year, is it possible that God has delayed the Rescue maybe due to prayers or for another reason.

    Yesterday our friend, Joe Crozier, went for a walk after Mass and breakfast and, as he walked, he kindly prayed the Rosary for me and for Fr. Wang, who has been down with a nasty viral cold. Afterward, Joe shared a heartwarming and heartening story which I’ve agreed to post for him – with his sunny day photos of the beautiful setting.

    As Joe set out on his way, he wrote: “The path was closed.

    But I found another on the other side.

    There, a man greeted me with a big smiley hello. I suspected immediately, from his manner and speech, that he had some form of disability. He pointed to a huge luxury house that I thought was a hotel.

    He explained it belonged to the Ratcliffe family (I had never heard of them.) and wondered how much it cost. I said that it does not matter how much money we have if we don’t get to heaven. He agreed and we started to talk about faith. He was of the LDS faith and called himself a saint. I spoke a little about my Catholic faith and Garabandal. He shared most of my faith in his own simple way. He talked about the Father and the Redeemer, the Cross and the sepulchre and the Resurrection. I told him about the Great Miracle, the promise of healing and the wonders worked through the relics. When I asked if he had a condition, he said he was autistic. I said he would go straight to heaven when his time came. He was in no doubt about this and his faith community had told him the same. I asked if I could touch my Garabandal relic to his head and he bowed his head so I could. As we said goodbye he shook my hand, thanked me for my words and wished me God Bless.

    Funny, the last thing I typed last night was about the lesson Mary gave the girls in Garabandal about treating the handicapped with charity and, today, I met a living saint on my walk. This was not only the other side – it was the right side.”

    There was a very interesting article by By Phil Lawler posted on Oct 13, 2017 that I just came across. I, for one, had expected the Conversion of Russia to fit my expectations. If Lawler is correct, God has fulfilled that prophecy, but in a way many (including me) didn’t expect. Perhaps the same is true with Charlie’s predictions? Here’s the article:

    The conversion of Russia: maybe not as we expected it

    All through the Old Testament and into the New, God surprised his People. We shouldn’t be caught off guard, then, if He still has surprises in store for us today.

    Elijah encountered God not in wind or the fire or the earthquake, but in the small still voice. [1 Kgs 19:11-13] The Messiah came on the human scene as a mighty warrior but as a defenseless baby. Jesus did not rise to a throne but to a Cross. Time after time, the expectations of the faithful have been confounded. God tells us what to expect, but we put his message into our own tight little categories, and in the process we miss something critical.

    I’m reminded of this all-too-human weakness today, on the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, because I am one of the many, many Catholics who misunderstood Our Lady’s message. I expected that the global struggle against Communism, the great worldwide political battle of my lifetime, would be resolved by some great, epic struggle. It was not. When the Soviet regime fell, it was defeated by the small, still voice of a people who refused to accept the legitimacy of the regime. The Berlin Wall was torn down not by tanks, but by young people in a party atmosphere. The great battle that I expected never came to pass.

    Or was there a great battle – a spiritual battle – that escaped public notice? There were, after all, all those people praying the Rosary, in accordance with Mary’s wishes.

    And now we wait for the promised conversion of Russia. If we have learned from experience, we should not be too surprised if that conversion take an unexpected route. The Catholic News Service has just released a short (30-minute) film, Faces among Icons, that reports on a spiritual revival in Russia. It is not the revival that you and I might have predicted. It is taking place most noticeably in the Orthodox Church, for one thing, rather than among Catholics. The relationship between the Orthodox Church and the Russian government is problematic, as it has been so often in the past. But something is stirring.

      So true, Anonymous: mystical messages are often fulfilled in surprising ways and Phil Lawler’s points are well taken. Interpretation is a key. The response of God’s people is another key and it unlocks mitigation. Then there’s the key which God Alone holds for He is ever interjecting surprises, springing from His Infinite Imagination rooted in Love.

      Charlie has written great pieces on the interpretation of prophecy. There is a serach bar on the right side of the page entitled “Categories.” Readers can find 79 piece connected to prophecy in the archives here. What I consider a foundational piece for us, when considering fulfillment of prophecies, is Charlie’s article, Through a Glass Darkly, found here.

      God has a Plan. GOD has the Plan, HIS Plan. Really taking this in, brings me to appreciate anew the profound wisdom in acknowledging God at all times and trusting Him as we take each next right step so that He can make of each one a sign of His Hope, shining in the darkest darkness. God bless you, Anonymous, and all here.

      Hello all!
      As far as I KNOW, a spiritual revival has been going on in Russia already for many decades. If you only could read Russian language you would know it, too.
      There are unfortunately obstacles to the passage of the right information ( and a lot of propaganda,
      too) and also the language barrier. I am sorry that you can’t know about the incredible riches of the Russian Orthodox Church… But do not worry, The Lord and His Mother take care of Russian people! About their government I will not say a word…

        Tarja,
        Thank you for the links. As one person stated late in the video “Faces among Icons” (i am paraphrasing) the ‘west’ views Russia through evil eyes as Russians view with love. The west views Russia with suspicion but only someone within can truly see the truth in the matter.

        For me, I think Putin knew a sleeping bear was about to emerge from hibernation and had to make a positive move toward religious freedom. The video brought up awesome points of faith, notably the Veneration Russia has for Mother Mary. Indeed Russia will quickly blossom, leading the World, in devotion to Her.

  22. An excellent article by Charlie. Much of it was of note, especially the following sentence about how society has been corrupted, step by little step, rather like the story of the frog put into slowly heated water until it dies from the heat;

    “Heaven knows, if a modern-day Rumplestiltskin went to sleep in 1962 and woke up today, he would think he had been transported to a Bizarro universe where the elites all think good is evil and evil, good.”

    So true, Charlie. My wife, Maureen, mentioned this to me today, how our country has turned so far towards evil since the 1960’s. I recently watched the following scary video, given by a scientist and DARPA insider, who warns us of some of the horrifying “advances” that are being made in regard to covertly influencing minds. He mentions the War in Iraq as an example of how they have already been put in use. It runs for 58 minutes.

    It very much brought to mind the following prophecy made by the Apostle Paul – it speaks of a future scenario when God will allow the wicked to receive a strong delusion. Could it be possible that weapons and techniques such as those mentioned in the above video might be involved in this delusion?

    “The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thess 2:9-12

    Thanks Joe Cro. I read about Garabandal years ago and continue to believe. Although I now do wonder……. Will Jesus still have face to face encounter with us or … Now with technological growth…. Use a text message! I cannot stand text!! But so many use it all the time.
    My silly comment for the day.

      Oh Anne, this evoked a chuckle. I can hardly wait to have that personal encounter with Jesus. Many spiritual writers who have studied Garabandal call the Warning a great Act of God’s Mercy. I’m ready for the correction and just want to be a better person because of it.

      Well Anne wouldn’t that be something – a text from God. Better than a phone call from the pope. One day your phone may buzz with the biggest surprise of your life. “You’ve got mail.” But how will you know it’s really from God! That will keep you guessing! You’ll never know.

      But we are told we will have no doubt that The Warning comes directly from God. Glenn, Conchita’s friend and protector, will probably use technology to give the world the 8 days notice of the Miracle. But The Warning will come upon us suddenly and unexpectedly when the time of Tribulation is at its worst and may be the most disturbing day of our lives. It may hurt but it will not harm us. Its ultimate effect will be to draw us closer to God. In this way, as Becks says, it will be seen as the greatest demonstration of God’s mercy and will prepare us for the greatest miracle ever worked by Jesus. There wiil be televsion cameras for that. I love my telly! See, I can be silly too.

        Joe, the Lord knows I’m like a curious little kid, so there are things that I wonder about. One of the Medjugorje seers has said that the first secret will be good for some and bad for others. That sounds to me as though it could be the Warning. Some will be much more prepared to see a review of their lives pass before them. If Garabandal has 8 days notice of the Miracle, that’s similar to a Medjugorje visionary giving her priest notice for the world to have 8 days warning about one of the secrets. I know, I know, I’m thinking too much! 🙂

          Hi Annie
          Thank you for your comment. As long as you continue to think as you do, with love, I doubt you can ever think too much.
          I don’t really know anything about Medjugorje. It seems to have become a place of great devotion to Mary and brought many back to the Faith. That has to be good.
          Garabandal gives me enough but I do not reject all other private apparitions and revelations. As with Garabandal I await church approval but even with that I think I will find I have been given enough already.

          Annie, the first secret will be very bad for those who are affected by this regional event and in a sense good for those not directly impacted. Visionary Mirjana Dragicevic Soldo from the famous Medjugorje site of apparitions in Bosnia-Hercegovina indicated in a previously undisclosed interview that the first of ten secret prophecies she was given by the Virgin Mary involves not a global miracle but a “severe” regional event.

          In an interview conducted by a priest a day after a vision in which she was shown the first secret, Mirjana, the first seer to obtain all ten secrets, said the first occurrence “will be something that [people] hear [about] very far” and added that people would not race to the place where the first one occurs because “surely no one wishes to watch disasters, distress, and misfortune. I don’t think that this sort of thing attracts people at all. Why would people go to see something of that sort? It is one thing to go and see a sign, quite another to go and see suffering or a disaster. Who would, for example, go to Italy to see a dam collapse?” She said the first secret needs nothing to precede it and will “abundantly speak for itself.” She said that people in Medjugorje “will know immediately that it is in connection with the secrets.” It will be something, she said, “that everyone, everywhere, will immediately hear about.”

The conversion of Russia, I do believe it has happened before our very eyes.. It is making the old Dragon very angry. We see how the far left, will not let go of the narrative, that Russian interference is why Trump won the Whitehouse..
    I just attended a funeral for a woman from my hometown.. For the past 25 years, she has spent almost every day at a 24 hour adoration chapel in prayer from 2am until 6am. Mother Teresa nuns have a convent there.. The nun found Rose at 4am, she had passed into Eternity while adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament…What a faithful servant. The mass was Byzantine. which is so close to the the Russian Orthodox. No organ just chanting and singing the Mass and much incense is used. Beautiful.

    I know where this all is heading. The NFL . . . the stupid quibbles about Columbus Day, the defacing of statues . . . I’m seeing protest without true focus, which means that it is ripe for use as a homemade weapon of cultural terrorism. This is how Mao’s cultural revolution started. “Past-thinking” . . . I think . . . was the great crime back then. It was a war on history and tradition. Cultural sins, cultural purging . . . cultural inquisition. We’re about to head into a real mess on every front. I saw a high school student imitate his NFL idols and start a protest at a local game . . . he was proud to “stand up for his beliefs” and many others admired the bravery of this young man and I just feel so sad. Most people want to believe in and stand up for something, they want to be strong and courageous and loving . . . but this mess we’re in is of such a nefarious nature that it has harnessed the goodness of people for its own ends through lies, propaganda and the omission of a great deal of collective human wisdom from throughout history. So sad and frustrating. Also, I was wondering if I might ask for a few prayers for my sister and my family. They are struggling to find their way through an intensely painful storm. Pray that Mary protects them and brings them through this terrible time safely.

            God Bless You Doug, thank you so much for doing that. I appreciate it so very much. Madeline will be Confirmed on Saturday November 4th. I am praying that the Holy Spirit comes into her in a big way! She has had so many tough things happen to her lately and says she has prayed so hard, but she says God doesn’t answer her. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated. Once when she was little and was very sick, she said a beautiful lady appeared to her and told her in a soft voice “You’re going to be all right.” And she got well soon after that. She even made a drawing of the lady! I think that right now she is angry at God for many concussions she has experienced, a fall that injured her back and neck, and an assault on a mission trip where she was trying to help people. Please ask our Blessed Mother to help! Thank you again Doug.

            Diane, this is so classic to blame our issues on God rather than believe God is with us every step of the way and consoles us. Suffering is a great mystery that I think we will not fully understand until we reach heaven. I can testify that there is great dignity in suffering when we align it in heart felt prayer with God. God knows what suffering us because he came to earth and suffered crucifixion when he was innocent. What many do not understand is since he is human and divine, there is an infinite component to his suffering. We will also understand this better when we obtain heaven. I will also print out this last post of yours and bring it with me. God bless you and Madeline!

    I thank God to be hearing our beloved Charlie again. His is a wealth of knowledge, experience and prophetic helps for us to be better prepared for what is happening in this “end” times. He minces no words and speaks boldly, plainly and truthfully. Truly, he is a God-send, especially for these times. We have much to pray about indeed and need to visit Our Lord a la Monstrance as often as possible to beg mercy for mankind. Like Charlie, we too must be willing now to “stand” for the entire Truth of the Gospel and the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, Which is going through Her Crucifixion. We are all involved, one way or another. There is no turning back but forward by taking that next right step of which Charlie speaks so often. Thank you Charlie and God keep you safe, content and well in His joy and love.

Archbishop Chaput led all the Bishops of the Dioceses in Pennsylvania in a consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I was privileged and blessed to be there and, after the Mass, I gave Archbishop Chaput the last holy card of St. Faustina that I had gotten at her shrine of Divine Mercy in Krakow. Just yesterday, all the faithful in all the parishes in PA were asked to join in the act of consecration. I feel so blessed by Our Lady and I ask her to also bless those more deserving among your flock here. Peace and blessings to all!

I wonder how many others that I have long looked up to or respected have abandoned the traditional teachings of our God and church? Woe is me.. this world is surely in need of the rescue now!!!

At my Alma Mater, which back then was beaurifully Catholic, we were required to have a philosophy minor, imagine that! The initial course was logic, one of my favorites, which produced an ‘A’ grade for me. So to this day, in some discussions, my husband teases me that I have to be logical! 🙂

    Hang in there, Charlie! Yes, it does seem like a world gone mad, probably especially to those of us who are older. We have seen the “before and after”, as I tell our kids. What would we do without our Faith, the greatest gift my ancestors could have given me!

    This acknowledgement is harder to make when times are hard. I hope and pray that you find all you need to weather this unusual depression. The song that I posted here when you first went into temporary retirement itself sounds a wee bit depressing (as the song of Irish and Scottish exiles often do) but the sentiment is as real and relavent as ever “Will ye no come back again” . May you soon come back to your best self so that you can best complete your mission. Then indeed your healing will be complete.

    Hi Charlie, from Paradise, mi. I was just thinking about all that is going on these days,. You know, God is always present and at work. If we are with Him and trying to be good and faithful servants. He takes care of us, no matter how bad the world is around us. This will always be true,
    as long as our hope is in God. Evil may think its making progress but God always has the upper hand on the outcome. The NCF Keryx # 20 went well this past september. More prisoners have been changed through the love, prayers and the Holy Spirit that they encountered on their weekend. Praise God! Check out chippewakeryx.org and watch the video, its inspiring to see God at work in my neck of the woods. God Bless

      Glad to hear that the Keryx event went well, Mike. 🙂

      By the way, a couple of years ago, there was a commenter who went by the screen name “Yooper Mike.” Was that you?

    Charlie, thanks for the nod to Nancy and her letters. This is a late response due to my husband and I being out of town. We were finally able to spend several days with our daughter and her family in Seattle… something we hadn’t been able to do for two years since we have been dealing with so much on the home front. Nancy was known for her letter writing and several were read at her funeral. I don’t know what her family will do with them, but she left boxes full of notes taken during spiritual rosaries prayed when our prayer group gathered. The insights that were given are amazing! Who knows, someday they might lead to an investigation for sainthood. 😇
