    How terrible for those without Faith or for those far from God. How to find meaning, reason, purpose in it all? It must seem like the end of our world.

    I heard of a guy from our Parish who died from the Bug in a New York Hospital yesterday. He was a, 'Proud,' homosexual who brought his African American , 'husband', back to Ireland with him a few years back on a visit.

    I suppose he died in that big hospital on his own.

    Prayers for him, prayers for all.

    This will all go in the history books. A huge Cross for all.

    (I hear if you have AIDS the Bug is a death blow)

    For those without faith and get sick, please pray for their deathbed conversion. In the end, nothing else matters at all.
    Our eternity is the only thing we might have control over. Pray for our loved ones, no matter their...and our own sinfulness, that in the end, we die with faith and repentance.

    Exactly. I remember praying about this in the early 1980's knowing it was coming but not knowing when or how. I was taking my cues back then from Malachi Martin who was convinced Our Lady would come before 2000. He kept saying that he was keeping his eyes on the sky. He said if it didn't happen then it would be much later. He also said that among satanists they had their own prophecy that if they did not seize control of the papacy by 1999 then they had lost. We know JPII never agreed to resign but held fast to the end. He got us over the finish line. I sometimes wonder if all this horror and storm and drang is the serpent furiously lashing his tale as ouf Lady crushes his head. Look at what had come to light since DJT's election. The evil empire has been exposed and there are those saying that under the radar it is being dismantled but it is a furious battle.

    I just never imagined it quite this way. So it is like a waking dream.

    Jesus once in agony have mercy on those who are in their last agony and will die this day. Especially those in danger of losing their souls.

    Yes, I have been thinking a lot about this today. I must pray and pray and pray and pray. Like the little Children of Fatima.

    Pray, pray, pray.

    It reminds me of what Jesus said about reading the Signs of the Times. I would have imagined that if we were people of prayer we would have seen this coming.

    Although many devout, good Catholics did not. I have no idea quite why or how they missed it.

    For instance I had one very good Catholic friend, Sean who must have visited Medugorje more times than the visionaries.:D They should have made him Mayor.:)

    Yet when I spoke to him about the ten secrets and coming Chastisements he looked at me as if I was nuts. I have no idea how he missed this stuff, but he did.

    Well he knows right now.;)

    The Fatima Angel Prayers


    [EUCHARISTIC PRAYER] [PARDON PRAYER]
    [SACRIFICE PRAYER] [DECADE PRAYER] [ANGEL'S PRAYER]




    EUCHARISTIC PRAYER

    MOST HOLY TRINITY, I adore Thee! My God, My God,
    I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

    (3 times)

    PARDON PRAYER

    MY GOD, I believe, I adore, I trust, and I love Thee!
    I ask pardon for for those who do not believe,
    do not adore, do not trust and do not love Thee.

    (3 times)

    SACRIFICE PRAYER

    Sacrifices

    A great "secret" of converting sinners is to make sacrifices for them, as well as to pray for them. Our Lady Of Fatima said: "Many souls go to Hell because there are none to sacrifice themselves and to pray for them," And the holy Cure of Ars said that the conversion of sinners "begins with prayer and ends with penance."

    But whereas "penance" and "sacrifice" sound frightening to some people and we may not like these words, yet they are the key to obtaining Heaven for poor sinners. If we are frightened of penance, we can begin by making one little sacrifice per day-----perhaps eating something we do not like, or drinking water instead of pop, or making ourselves wait a half hour or so to take a drink when we are thirsty. These are little forms of "fasting". Some sacrifices we are obliged to make anyway, but we can offer them for sinners: examples of these are being patient with a trying person or turning off an immodest TV, program. These sacrifices will be presents for Our Lady, the precious coin she can use to buy back souls that are headed for Hell.

    It seems that God loves to "delegate" His work, He has given it to us to be the "secondary" causes of His work, including the salvation of our "brother" and our "neighbor." And though His Blood poured out on Calvary was sufficient to save all souls, He requires that we, the living branches on Him, the Vine, ask for and even "activate" its application to those souls by our prayers and our sacrifices.

    At Fatima both the Angel and Our Lady asked for sacrifices for sinners. They said, "Sacrifice yourself." This is done largely by generously making individual sacrifices.

    The Angel of Fatima, too, told the three children to "Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High . . . Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners . . . Above all, accept and bear with submission the sufferings which the Lord will send you."

    If Our Lady and the Angel ask for prayers and sacrifices for the conversion of sinners, this means that they actually intend to save sinners if prayers and sacrifices are offered up. We must therefore send these up with confidence in Our Lady's intention and power to save the dying. After receiving the above-mentioned message of the Angel, the children were given to understand "how pleasing it [sacrifice] is to Him and how, on account of it, He grants the grace of conversion to sinners." It does work! This is the true recipe for saving souls, even those who are dying and have very little time left.



    OUR LADY OF FATIMA SAID: SACRIFICE YOURSELVES FOR SINNERS AND SAY MANY TIMES, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU MAKE SOME SACRIFICE:


    O JESUS, it is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners,
    and in reparation for the sins committed against
    the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    DECADE PRAYER

    (To be said after the Glory Be at the end of
    each decade of the Rosary)

    O MY JESUS, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of Hell,
    lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need of Thy mercy.

    ANGEL'S PRAYER

    (Given to the three children by the Angel who
    preceded Our Lady's first appearance to them.)


    MOST Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly.
    I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity
    of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world,
    in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference
    by which He is offended. And through the infinite merit
    of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
    I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.

    This may have been covered, but didn't Padraig say there were nine icons? Did he ever say what the other three were? Also, Padraig, did you ever identify the guy who walked out of congress?

    I was listening to Mother Miriam last night and I heard something so touching. She had been talking about the Signs of the Times. A gentleman from New York rang in . Both he and his wife had the virus and were in isolation. By the sound of his voice, to me, he sounded quite bad. Himself and Mother Miraim discussed all that is going on in the world at the moment and what might occur in the near future.

    Himself and Mother Miriam were well informed about the subject matter of Catholic prophecy and on the same wave length.

    But it was so surreal listening to them both with him having the virus. It made me pay attention.

    I also listening to a gentleman on the radio who had , had the virus and had been on a ventilaor for a long, long time. They reckoned it would take at least a year before he was back on his feet and would never fully recover. But as a consequence he had underwent multiple amputatons.

    They keep clling it a Respiratory illness but it seems to affect the whole body. Imagine multiple amputations, who would have thought?

    Here in our hospitals they are considering triage next month (January) in other words deciding who can be let die. There are just not enough beds. At the moment people are waitng in ambulances for up to 26 hours before getting through the doors.

    It does not look good.

    I saw the funeral for a gentleman who lived round the corner from me who died of it. So many restrictions for his funeral, it was like the Middle Ages.

    I see they're closing the Churches again next week.

    It really is surreal. it reminds me of a war. In fact it is worse than a war.

    Is the new virus strain that they have found in the South heading your way yet, Padraig, or is it the same old strain as before that is making the hospital think about triage? How are you holding up emotionally in this situation?

    I do not understand why people don't take covid seriously. It may only be severe in certain people, but no one yet knows whether it will hit them or their family hard. I know a woman whose daughter-in-law, still in her 20s, had the virus travel into her heart. She has had several operations to repair the damage, but will never recover fully. It took the doctors a long time to figure out what was going on; she was one of the first patients with covid back in January. She got the disease when she visited a Chinese friend who had just arrived from Wuhan.

    I see the AMA has approved hydroxychloroquine . . . .after they disapproved of it. I think it would be prudent to take it if your Dr. would permit it. I am still taking a daily dose of quercetin. I do take the virus seriously.

    It would be much, much better not to get it, no matter how young and fit you are. Much, much better. This is not like the Flu.

    The mutation in the South of Enlgand is the second that I know of in Euopre the first being an animal jump from caged mink in Denmark.

    The English one had only ben discovered but it seems to spread far more quickly than the original. No one knows if the new vaccine swill hold it. There will be many more mutations. I am afraid the vaccines are fools gold.

    I am very,very well indeed. I am a loner anyway so that helps. But I have been doing the Divine Will Devotions and this is a huge, huge grace. It would be true to say that I am happier than I have been in my entire life, actually.

    I feel so sorry for those who are far from God. All this must be a total killer.

    There is no doubt something huge is looming on the horizon. You can feel it in the air....

    This virus is really serious, it is a big mistake to treat it lightly.

    Drugs like this are not freely available to the public in Europe.

    Virus mutations make vaccines a very temproary fix. The bug will jump past them by changing.

    That's what virus's do best.

    They change. I'd love to know the real Mortality figures from China, that would give some idea.

    The Chinese Communists are such total liars.

    The Italians did a full study with statistics and all that showed it was effective. Before all the studies in the US were cr*p -- patients who were at different stages of covid, in different age groups, and they used massive doses of hydroxychloroquine. A first-year medical student could have designed a better test than some of these that were being thrown out just to show that all the anecdotal evidence was wrong. Once the Italians approved its use, there was no reason for the US to prohibit its use, especially since Donald will be leaving the White House soon.
