    The right leader will save us?

    While it is true that men and women who get into power through politics are I believe for the most part corrupt. I do not think this is a harsh statement, since I doubt if I were to get into the political sandbox that I would be able to stay honest either. Too many temptations on all levels.

    I have always found it funny that every four years we think that we will finally get a leader to get us out of our decades-long slide into chaos. Yet, no matter who gets into power, we continue our descent into the further deconstruction of our society.

    Our politicians grow out of the rich soil of our world, and we are that soil. We place our hopes on men and women who are more messed up than we are, perhaps weaker in many ways because of what they have to deal with.......yes, in them we place our hope.

    I do believe that this is the time for all believers, no matter their path, to really live what they say they believe. I would imagine that if this happened, perhaps things would change, or even turn around. However, I am not placing much hope in that.

    Prayer is the gateway wherein we allow the 'Light' to enter into our hearts, allowing grace to transform us over time. When we forget that we have souls, we will not take care of our spirits, and seek healing and salvation in that which can only leave us empty, dry, brittle, disappointed, and bitter.

    Events are happening so fast that the only peace available too many is to go inward and in doing that to find the courage to stand their ground, stay centered, and not be pulled in all directions by the press, and the other cultural fads that come and go. Which seems over time, to become more lethal to any kind of communal health in our society.

    Our souls are connected to God, if our souls are light, then the darkness will withdraw from us allowing us to think more clearly.

    Fanaticism, be it political, or religious, is what St. Paul would call 'the flesh'. It is normal for us to force others out, to condemn others, to hate what we fear. The light of God asks us to do the opposite, to die to merely instinctive ways of living and seek another way.

    Doing our own will, seeking only what gives us satisfaction has brought us where we are today.

    I wonder what our culture would be like if for one year the Ten Commandments were followed? Even unbelievers would find this helpful in their lives since many of them put us believers to shame.

    Just think, one day a week giving over to rest. Family life held together, no stealing, or killing, or men and women cheating on each other. The ten commandments are rooted in the love of others, and to treat them with respect.

    I know that will not happen. Yet as believers, we can seek to deepen our trust in God, to pray, to on a more conscious level seek to follow what Jesus taught us Christians to do.

    I am not saying anything new, but every-time we fail to live out of our faith in a loving manner the ripple effect is extreme.

    I find it interesting that in the NDE this is often brought to light. We will have to face all that we did to others, and experience what we put others through as they felt it. It is I believe a necessary step for us to go through so we can understand that all those people we see, those we know, and those we do not, are real, and need to be treated with respect, love, and consideration.

    This is quite a ride we are on. I am not interested in changing anything, or anyone, I find it difficult enough dealing with myself. Yet I can pray for others, and I believe that prayer is our deep connection with all.--Br.MD

    Yes, Mark, events are happening very fast, but then, it is the technology that feeds us the news instantaneously. I remember when younger there was the cautionary warning of not spending so much time in the news. But back then it was basically the daily newspaper and a few periodicals. Life has truly sped up!

    Yet as believers, we can seek to deepen our trust in God, to pray, to on a more conscious level seek to follow what Jesus taught us Christians to do. :D

    Julia Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

    An urgent request received by email today from Alan Ames who has NEVER BEFORE came out and said the Holy Spirit asked him to speak out. Alan Ames has been giving his testimony for years; but not this type of communication. Must Read as follows;

    As in some countries and states elections will be held this year I thought it important to repost this letter from 2016 that I wrote with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Today as then it is extremely important we reflect on this and do nothing that would help evil through supporting in any way those who promote abortion, immorality and restrictions of religious freedoms. I encourage you to pass this on to as many people as you can.

    God bless,

    Dear Friends,

    From the many questions I get about the future of the Church I would like to answer them in this way and with a prophetic word of what lies ahead unless we act.

    Over the past years the Church in western countries has been continuously attacked by governments, politicians and groups who desire that their will or way of life be accepted by Christians even when these are against church teaching.

    The last years have been particularly difficult as one major government tries to force its will on the Church. This government has attacked the Church or Christian groups through the use of what are called equal rights but often are wrongs. It is done in various ways including through the targeting of Christian groups by the tax arm of the government to remove charitable exemptions etc. There are attempts to force the Church to accept such things as abortion in Catholic hospitals, paying for those in the Church employ to have contraception, same sex marriage, adoption of children by same sex couples, transgenders lifestyles and much more. Religious groups within the Church have had to fight legal battles just to try and keep to the faith and the teachings of the church (which is to love the person but to reject the sin).

    Some of those in power try to take away religious freedom in the name of being progressive or politically correct; try to deny Christians the right to follow their faith and their conscience. This government appears to want to have a country that has little faith and can be manipulated easily to do it's will. Already the consequences of this can be seen by the number of people who no longer go to church or believe in God. The numbers embracing satanism seems to be growing. Secularism reigns supreme in many lives and atheism is on the rise. While all around the morals of society collapse and people suffer from this. It is time now for Catholics and all Christians to stand up and say enough for if this is allowed to continue then disaster surely lies ahead.

    Some Christians tell me that they will vote for some one who supports abortion at all stages of the pregnancy even late term and partial birth abortions. Do they not understand to do this is to support the killing of babies and that they become part of this terrible sin and will carry that responsibility with them to be confronted by The Lord on judgement day when He will ask them why they supported the killing of the innocent. Some have responded to me that both choices support abortion but one person to vote for says they are pro life and only support abortion when life of the mother is at risk or for some other very serious problem such as rape or incest. While both choices are not good a Christian must support the one that will save the most lives and will help reduce abortions which in time may influence the country to go further in reducing this terrible act of inhumanity.

    Catholics and all Christians who would vote for those who want to suppress the faith, to change the faith, to force Christians to accept sin and to be immoral are attacking the faith themselves. They become part of the forces that want to destroy Christianity, destroy the Church. We must support the ones who say they will protect Christianity and freedom of religion. The ones who understand what is happening to the Judeo/ Christian heritage we have and promise to defend that heritage.

    If Christians do not now stand up for their faith and stand firmly in the truth of Christ by rejecting and not supporting those who attack the church, attack the faith, then it may be too late. If the situation we are in now is allowed to continue it will get only worse. In years to come the Catholic Church will have been assailed so much that it will be reduced to a shadow of what it is today. The people attending will drop as people will lose belief in God or will go to more ‘progressive' churches who accept what the government and special interest groups in society say is right. Many will see no reason to go to church for they will see it as a place of bigots and extremists. Many will be drawn away from God and deeper into the darkness of the secular world. It may happen that a church springs up calling itself catholic but is truly not and some will be drawn to that.

    If we Christians want the future to be a good one living in the truth of God we need to support our God and our faith. If we do not then be assured the world will get worse. Darkness will envelop your families and friends. Suffering will increase. Hatred will spread and the evil one will have his way in many lives taking many souls from God. A terrible thought and I pray this does not come to be.

    This can be stopped but each one of us has to do what God calls us to; reject the worldly ways of immorality and sin and never support someone who shamelessly promotes these evil things.

    I normally do not speak in this way but I have been shown how important it is that at this time people of faith stand firm and defend their faith by supporting those who will not attempt to change or destroy their faith. Encourage all you know to think deeply about the future they want. Do they want a Christian based one or one based on the falseness that is in the world? Help all make the right choice.

    God bless,

    Alan Ames

  5. U.S. Supreme Court declines to block mail delivery of abortion pill
    By Andrew Chung, Lawrence Hurley

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday temporarily allowed a drug used for medication-induced abortions to be mailed or delivered during the coronavirus pandemic.

    The court declined to act on a request by the Trump administration asking to reinstate a U.S. Food and Drug Administration rule, suspended by a federal judge in July, that required women to visit a hospital or clinic to obtain the drug.

    The order was unusual in that it neither granted nor denied the government’s request.

    The court instead ordered that the judge should “promptly consider” within 40 days whether his ruling should be withdrawn or amended due to changed circumstances on the ground. The court did not elaborate.

    U.S. Judge Theodore Chuang in Greenbelt, Maryland, blocked the FDA’s rule as litigation continues in lower courts. Chuang had ruled that the in-person requirements “place a substantial obstacle in the path of women seeking a medication abortion” and likely violate their constitutional rights.

    The Trump administration’s application was filed before the death of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which has left the court with only eight justices and a 5-3 conservative majority. Two conservative justices, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, noted that they would have granted the application.
  6. COVID drug Trump touted as a "cure" was developed using cells derived from aborted fetal tissue
    By Kate Smith
    The antibody cocktail that President Trump received for his COVID-19 infection and touted on Wednesday evening as a "cure" for the deadly virus was developed using cells derived from aborted fetal tissue, a practice the White House and anti-abortion rights groups oppose.

    Last week, Mr. Trump received Regeneron Pharmaceuticals' cocktail of monoclonal antibodies, an experimental therapeutic for coronavirus that is still undergoing testing and is not FDA approved. In a nearly five-minute video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, the president lauded its effects, calling it "the key."

    "I think this was a blessing from God that I caught [the virus], I think it was a blessing in disguise," Mr. Trump said in the video. "I caught it, I heard about this drug, I said, 'Let me take it' … and it was incredible the way it worked."

    There is another side to this story-- the side not being pumped by leftists:

    While the treatment uses cells once derived from fetal tissue, the cells are no longer considered fetal stem cells, despite a number of claims to the contrary.

    ... the Regeneron antibody with which Trump was treated was developed using a cell line that was originally — but not recently — derived from abortion tissue, according to a report from MIT Technology Review.

    “It’s how you want to parse it,” Alexandra Bowie, a Regeneron spokesperson, told MIT Technology Review. “But the 293T cell lines available today are not considered fetal tissue, and we did not otherwise use fetal tissue.”

    The only leader we ever had to save us is Jesus Christ. That is why our church has lasted for over 2000 years . . .most civilizations collapse after several hundred years. Humans are imperfect, therefore not capable of being perfect, with the one exception, our Blessed Mother.
