    For discernment. If Marino Restrepo is to be believed, he has recently been given a message from Jesus that we will know the Warning is near and His intermediate coming, not the final Coming; I call it The Great and Terrible day of the Lord. The day the angels tremble at the thought of, will happen when the Jews convert to Catholicism. Our Lord has allegedly said it will be like the fall of the Berlin Wall, sudden, unexpected and will result in murder and mayhem among the Jews, because it would appear not ALL of them will convert, which means imho those who are still unconverted will try to slaughter the Jews who do convert. That is when Jesus allegedly pays a visit, and we will all know because it will be the Warning or Illumination.

    Jesus also allegedly told Marino Restrepo, the Jews are the chosen people. The rest of us have been adopted or grafted through Baptism into the family of God. So our job is to Keep Watch and Pray. And remain so grateful to God for His gift of Redemption.

    Watch this space.

    The year of St. Joseph was a great blessing for me. It was remarkable, in fact. I believe Pope Francis truly loves Our Lady. When he put the beach ball on the altar, an odd thing, it occurred to me at the time it was very childish thing to do. I'm of the mind that the Blessed Mother is working on him, and our prayers for him will help things along. Those "minions" will be working just as hard, so we mustn't give up.

    There is another great Grace and Blessing. How could we forget.

    If we focus on counting our Blessings, everything will be much better for us all and help us poor servants of the Lord to keep our noses to the grinding stone. There is so much to be grateful for. How good is our dear God. Bless His Holy Name.

    This Prophecy , that the Jews would return to the Faith and take Leadership of it was first given to Saint Paul by the Holy Spirit and is contained in Scripture:

    Romans 11

    The Remnant of Israel
    11 I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel: 3 “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”a]">[a]? 4 And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”b]">[b] 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. 6 And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.

    7 What then? What the people of Israel sought so earnestly they did not obtain. The elect among them did, but the others were hardened, 8 as it is written:

    “God gave them a spirit of stupor,
    eyes that could not see
    and ears that could not hear,
    to this very day.”c]">[c]

    9 And David says:

    “May their table become a snare and a trap,
    a stumbling block and a retribution for them.
    10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,
    and their backs be bent forever.”d]">[d]

    Ingrafted Branches
    11 Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. 12 But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their full inclusion bring!

    13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I take pride in my ministry 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. 15 For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 16 If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.

    17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, 18 do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. 19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.

    22 Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off. 23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!

    All Israel Will Be Saved
    25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, 26 and in this waye]">[e] all Israel will be saved. As it is written:

    “The deliverer will come from Zion;
    he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
    27 And this isf]">[f] my covenant with them
    when I take away their sins.”g]">[g]

    28 As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, 29 for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may nowh]">[h] receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you. 32 For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.

    33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom andi]">[i] knowledge of God!
    How unsearchable his judgments,
    and his paths beyond tracing out!
    34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has been his counselor?”j]">[j]
    35 “Who has ever given to God,
    that God should repay them?”k]">[k]
    36 For from him and through him and for him are all things.
    To him be the glory forever! Amen.

    It does indeed look at if the return of the Jewish people is imminent and that in future Jewish Popes and leaders will save the Church from its current Apostasy.

    I saw this too Julia. I pay attention to Marino Restrepo. To my mind he has immense credibility. He is not right about everything perhaps but he has a simple and direct way of putting things and I believe he has a true deep humility. We know that the conversion ofcthe Jews is THE sign of Our Lord's coming. Ralph Martin says this too. And we have not seen this yet. Not enmasse. But we are headed into a "great and terrible day of the Lord" I think. The world leaders and power brokers are playing with real fire trying to " become" God. This will not end well for them or us.

    as God promised that he would make the seed of Ishmael a great nation I wonder if this refers to a future conversion of the Muslim people; perhaps along with the Jews.
    Genesis 17:20
    "And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation".

    Back to Melchisedech, whom so many priests are keen to 'disappear' from the Mass liturgy, everytime they use a Eucharistic prayer other than the Roman Canon.

    True. But he did say in the America article that he, too , was once "rigid". It may sound silly but that to me seemed a lil sign of hope. I can't find the source, but I remember reading somewhere that Cardinal Sarah said we should pray for him like he's our own father. At the time I thought, really? After reading Fr. Murr's book, that seemed to make more sense to me. He's the Holy Father, and our spiritual family, the Militant Church, is in a pretty dysfunctional state right now and has been for awhile. So I'm trying to take Cardinal Sarah's advice to heart these days. It's not easy, but what is in the times we are in?

    Hundreds of millions of good Catholics, including I am sure hundreds of Great Living Saints are praying Daily for Our Holy Father the Pope. It must surely have some affect.

    Here is a longer interview with the wonderful Fr Charles Theodore Murr on Freemasons in the Vatican.

    May God bless and reward this good priest for exposing this great evil. A very,very holy and learned priest.

    Does anyone know if there was any kind of Masonic infiltration in the Orthodox Churches before the communist revolution (1917) because at least in Russia there was a visible destruction of the hierarchy with the advent of communism but my doubt is if other enemies of the faith were already infiltrated in this and other churches orthodox.

    I was just thinking today that if the Jews came back and took charge it would be really, really great for the Liturgy, because it would be straight back to the Jewish roots. You can't go wrong when you do that.

    As far as I recall the Cardinal Archbishop of Paris , Jean-Marie Lustiger was Jewish. He converted when he was just 14, two years later his mother was deported and murdered in Aushwitz.

    Yes, maryrose, I'm sure Pope Francis miscalculated, causing the reverse effect that Traditionis custodes sought: pushback and bishops like my own who has now more visibly supported the Latin Mass community. This new apostolic letter by Pope Francis seeks to soothe unsettled souls, but the goal of suppressing the TLM is still alive and well in the Pontiff's mind. I'm praying, too!

    O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

    Fr. Murr mentioned in the latest video posted here, that the documents coming out of the Vatican didn't mention the name of Jesus. That is exactly what my pastor spoke about at Mass last Sunday or the Sunday before.
