In reference to your latest mailing (*)... How can the wealthy of
the world respond to the poor? How can we best help them?
If these questions show ignorance and shallowness on my part, please
In all truth, a key part of the answer to KD's
letter came through a
letter from another List Member (Mrs. X) that reached us
reproduce below the edited (for privacy purposes) letter from Mrs. X.
week ago, we got the call from the bank that our home is in
foreclosure. That was on Monday. Tuesday, the man who owns the building
where our family business runs, called to tell us that he is taking it
We have 9 children, 3 of which are
employed by our family business
that is going away. However, much good has come from this because
it has strengthen our individual relationships with God - because God
is always the same, and always good.
Now, to my point. This would have
been a prime opportunity for at least a dozen family members ( our
siblings and their spouses) to extend themselves to us and offer us a
hand in our time of trial. Many of them have plenty of money and brag
about the millions they have
made over time. They always have plenty for the casino. None of them
practice their catholic faith.
We are Lazarus to them, they have
spurned us. It is our church family that is bringing us through each
day, even as we pray the 'Our Father' at daily mass, truly trusting
that God will give us our daily bread.
Our poor family members, who look
down on us for having so many children, have once again missed a chance
to practice what Scriptures say..." Charity covers a multitude of ins"
...and yet, we pray for their conversion. May God be blessed in all
even through our tears...
As you may readily see, the "Lazarus"
are really everywhere; we just have to be sensitive to their plight
through the vision given to us by the Holy Spirit of God.
In the above shared letter we actually see two sets of "Lazarus" - we
see the material Lazarus who may appear (to the world) to be about to
go under financially and their family (their siblings and their
spouses), the spiritual Lazarus, who already are spiritually
What is refreshing is to see the "material Lazarus" doing what Jesus
clearly taught us - "...and yet, we
pray for their conversion".
That generosity God will
not overlook nor ever forget and, frankly, we look forward how He Will
manifest His Glory to this family who are enduring great financial
setbacks with trust and confidence as well as obedience to His
teachings. It will certainly be more glorious than a Rainbow.
This is scene right out of the New Testament : Those
who are the richest are those who appear bankrupt to the world and
those who are truly bankrupt (for spiritual bankruptcy is the worse
kind bankruptcy) are the ones who appear rich to the world.
Other "Lazarus" may also be found in Africa, India, Maymar, etc. The
only charity that we can confidently recommend, because we know them
first hand and have for over 30 years - long before God touched
is Renewed Hope
are sure that there are many worthwhile
local charities that truly serve the local Lazarus instead of filling
the pockets of the "holy" promoters - as it is usually the case.
The referred to
Let us not forget the "Lazarus" of
during our daily prayers
and acts of Mercy; we certainly do not want to hear Abraham, in our
era, Christ say:
Son, remember that thou
receive good things in thy
and likewise Lazarus evil things, but now he is comforted; and thou
art tormented. And besides all this, between us and you,
great chaos: so that they who would pass from hence to you, cannot, nor
from thence come hither. [Luke 16: 25-26]
Of course, if one's name is in the Book
of Life, the passage "to
Abraham's bosom" will be possible - in that case it would be
from Purgatory to Heaven.(1)
Yes, we understand that Jesus told us:
the poor you have always with you: and whensoever you will, you may do
them good: but me you have not always. [Mark
14:7] but just because He said that "...the poor you have always with you..." does
not mean that we should forget them for in the same breath He said "...whensoever you will, you may do them good:..."
Many continued Blessings in proportion to our generosity towards those
whom God has entrusted to our care.
Your Family at The M+G+R Foundation
(1) We assure
you - regardless of whatever the "dogma of the day"
of Vatican may be - Purgatory is a reality. Divine realities are
subject "dogmas of the day" which usually respond to monetary
influences and have nothing to do with God.

Thank you for once
again answering my questions. It is because of those answers that
I would ask something of you all.
If it be in accordance to His will, I ask that you include me in your
prayers, for I feel that I have gone astray and I need all the help I
It seems my Eyes and Ears are shut, I cannot See, I cannot Hear.
Recently, I have prayed to Jesus for guidance in a decision I was going
to make and I have discerned no answer.
This has led me to one conclusion, my Lord has never failed
me, if I have not been able to discern any answers, then the fault is
mine. I am too far away from God to understand what he has "said".
I entreat you then, if I am of the Elect, please pray for me. If not,
then it really doesn't matter does it? You needn't respond to this
message, it will be enough for me that you consider my request.
Regardless of your decision, know that you are all in my prayers and I
will continue to strive as best I can.
May God continue to bless and guide
The above is the actual letter from one of our dear brothers, however,
it reflects the feelings from a number of our correspondents. The only
common thread missing from the above cry is: Why would God make a miracle for me? Who
am I to be worthy of a miracle?
With the missing cry included we shall proceed to respond - for it is
the Will of God that we do.
First - let us review the clear and unequivocal words of God - Jesus
Christ - THE Word of God Incarnate - via Matthew 5:6 :
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
for holiness; they shall have their fill.
Blessed are they that hunger and
thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.
Blessed are they who hunger and
thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
The above are three versions of the same verse from Bibles accepted by
the Catholic Faith.
There may appear some differences but there is none
is a natural result of Justice and Righteousness can only result in
Anyone who have such thirst cannot
anything else but one of the Elect. The problem lies in that
satan tries to convince said individual that he/she is not so in an
effort to make their lives miserable. Of course, his last "shot" will
be at the time we stand before the Throne of Justice where THE Word of
God, Jesus Christ, will judge each and everyone of us. At that time
satan will try to convince us that we are worthless and that we deserve
to go to hell, in the hopes that we fall for that trap. You see,
we even make that final choice. This is why we keep praying to
Mary "...pray for us sinners now and the hour of our death
; She will help us not fall into satan's last trap.
To explain how satan tricks us into feeling that "...it is my fault..."
that we may not hear God's guidance and instructions, we shall use
physical examples which most human beings are familiar with:
1. You have studied diligently for a
final exam. You know the material forwards and backwards yet you
are fearful that you may fail. You are presented with the exam and the
fear that satan planted in your heart causes you to freeze and cannot
remember a thing. The results are disastrous.
2. A male who is not so sure of his "manhood" - something more common
than most people can even imagine and which satan uses to its maximum.
One day, for a very logical reason he cannot perform sexually. Panic
sets in and it will take quite a bit of psychological work to get that
man functioning again even though that one mishap was the logical
result of any number of non sexual reasons and it certainly had to do
nothing with his "manhood".
3. A female is fearful that she may not be able to have a child. She
and her husband try, and try and panic begins to set in while satan
whispers in her ear that she will never be a mother. Now panic turns
into despair and, we assure you, she will not conceive now.
In all of the above - in most cases - the moment the individual just
simply relaxes and takes the attitude of "Whatever will be, will be"
(*) in accordance to the Will of God, all three "problems" disappear
since the absolute trust in God sends satan scurrying away.
Therefore, if we try too hard to hear God, we will probably miss His
Now, satan is probably telling you: "Oh,
and if you miss that response you will really be in a fix!"
Don't fall for that last ditch effort from satan.
If you really want to do the Will of God, i.e. "...hunger and thirst for holiness;"
you shall have your fill! God will try to get through to you in a
number of ways until He does get through AND your missing the first
"half dozen Divine tries" will cause you negligible problems when all
is said and done.
Please, remember, God is truly Almighty and there is nothing He cannot
do - Period! All He needs is a willing soul and whatever it
takes, He will work it out.
Remember, the Evangelization failed not because of God, but because the
individuals charged for instructing you as we do, did not it - even
though they have had almost 2000 years to do so!
That you are not worthy of a miracle? According to whom? satan? Let God
decide the when and how - He can handle it well!
Just relax and, paraphrasing a commercial from a bus company in the US:
"Relax and leave the driving to God!"
then, you can enjoy the ride into Eternity - starting right now!
Incidentally, miguel de Portugal did not learn that from some half
baked theology book - God taught it to him and he has lived it, and
seen it lived by those whom he instructed, for over twenty years!

Thank you for the very
document (*). I have saved a copy to refer to.
However, one item
- Before the first resurrection of the dead, a
faithful remnant of Jews will believe Christ and follow Him (Romans
11:15; Romans 11:25-32). This will come after
the appointed number of the Gentiles has believed in Christ.
contrast, the False Christ will not draw the Jews to himself; he will,
sufficient time, persecute them. He hates the Jews, for they were
original Chosen People, and the first heirs of the Promise.
said something to the effect “I
come in the name of the Father and you do not accept me. But
come in his own name and him you will accept”. [John 5:43]
This seems to be
contradictory to the point above.
We thank you for the opportunity to shed light on this issue.
The exact quotation from the Douay-Rheims version of the Bible is: I am come in the name of my Father, and
you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will
Jesus is primarily speaking about those "whose face is
known" because they come "in his own name" i.e.
on their own credentials
(the key to deception which we
keep bringing up in the hopes that more wake up to it). For
example, in the case of Ratzinger, it does not matter who he may really
; he is now "Pope" and anyone that "is known to be the
the masses have been brainwashed to believe - "in his own name" - no
matter what he may say.
The Jews spoken of in item 39 above are " a faithful remnant of Jews"
which comprise only a small
part of the greater body of Jews, and who are counted amongst
the Elect. The rest will fall, just like most of the Christians will,
for those who come in their own name; i.e. on their own credentials.
This is the reason why God insisted - from the first day - that miguel
de Portugal speak without
any credentials whatsoever since only those who have Eyes to See
and Ears to Hear, will respond to what he says in the Name of God; the
rest are strictly credentials seekers and, as they are presented the
"proper credentials", they will believe and fall in error. That
is precisely why ...the
serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman, water
as it were a river; that he might cause her to be carried away by the
Prophecies Regarding the Return of Christ
From LP @

Regarding your statement in a recent communication: "The Faithful
must realize that the time for Divine Mercy has a limit."
Until now, I have assiduously prayed the Mercy Chaplet,
have attempted to do it without any mental reservation: I meant my
prayers to be a comprehensive plea for God to flood the world with
mercy, sufficient to reach all - just as the Fatima
Prayer says, "lead all souls to Heaven, especially
those most in need of Thy mercy." The Fatima Prayer is part of my
daily recitation of the Chaplet.
But this item, and so many others, makes me wonder ... and
shudder. If mankind is being given a reprieve, we are making a
dreadful use of it - as a whole, we're getting worse, not
it be that the time has come to stop praying for mercy and to just say
"Thy will be done" - accepting that such Divine Will may now encompass
the end of the time of mercy? And yet, how can I, a sinner,
from praying for mercy? The Mercy saved me; can I refuse to
the same for everyone else who needs it? Do I dare to pray for
Maybe - in my case - the response is (unless God directs me
otherwise) to continue the prayers for Mercy - someone has to, after
all - but to accept the fact that the Mercy may be shown only in
limited cases, and not to the multitude.
I wonder, and I listen ...
As we have explained in a recent
, only the
who are only known to God at the time of their conception, will
Eternity in Heaven with Him. As we have also explained, those who
have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear, i.e. The Elect, open their eyes and
ears at different points of
in Time. The longer it takes for them to
able to See and Hear, the more they will suffer in this journey.
Therefore, if we really wish to serve God, Who Is all Goodness and
Love, we must strive to minimize the suffering of His Elect in the
world, as we have also explained
Therefore, when we invoke
we are doing so for His Elect.
Now, at the time when Mercy is stopped, what is meant is that God will
then only apply the proverbial Plan "B" - Pain
is the megaphone
God uses to assist the deaf in hearing Him.
In reference to the part of the Prayer of Fatima which states:
souls to Heaven, especially
those most in need of Thy mercy." As we understand it, that part refers
to the souls who are in Purgatory and awaiting merits to shorten their
stay in Purgatory and move into Heaven.
LP, you are even helpful when
you have questions and we Praise God for your enduring assistance.

I have a question about polygamy.
God is perfect and unchanging, yet in the Old Testament polygamy was an
accepted practice. Even in the New Testament when one of the suggested
requirements of a bishop was being discussed, one of it was being the
husband of one wife. Meaning that even then, polygamy was still being
practiced. When did this turn evil?
And how will this affect the conversion of Muslims during the End
Times? Will they still be polygamous, or will they have to choose which
wife they want to keep? I'm sorry, but this question just occurred to
me earlier today and I felt the need to ask.
If it be in accordance to His will, I
shall await your answers.
May God continue to bless you all.
Once again we must thank you for the opportunity to address this matter.
The answer lies right in the New Testament:
They say to
Him: Why then did Moses
command to give a bill of divorce, and to put away? He
saith to them: Because Moses, by reason of the hardness of
your heart, permitted you to put away your wives: but from the
it was not so.
[Matthew 19: 7-8]
Regarding the effect that such
situation will have on Muslims during End Times, we have not been given
any information about that yet; thus, anything that we may say would
sheer speculation and not
illumination. CNN, FOX, etc. handle "speculation"; The M+G+R
Foundation, in the Name of God, handles "illumination".

When the foretellers informed Herod that a Messiah was born he sent his

Bethlehem...but, this is, apparently, when the Angel warned Joseph and
Mary to flee into Egypt...
However, did not Herod make some kind
of connection when Jesus was brought before him thirty three years
later-it seems logical that he would make the connection at some point
during The Passion.Certainly, he would have been aware of the history
of Jesus' activities, associations and miracles reported during His

The following announcement was made before the Maundy Thursday service at Saint Mary's Church, Dubai by Mr.
Tellis the Spiritual Director of our church. I shall try to quote verbatim from memory:
understand that Holy Communion can be received only by Catholics who
are in a state of grace. However,
during Holy Week, non Catholic
Christians who are in a state of grace may also receive Holy Communion
that they believe in the Presence of
Jesus in the Eucharist."
I thought that the receiving of the Sacrament of Penance/Confession/Reconciliation was a pre-requisite to
receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Am I mistaken?
Wishing you a VERY HAPPY EASTER!

I am sending a comment about the 10 April letter from JC. I do not have fancy degrees, & will try to get my
point across in my simple language, with no offense intended. First of all, we all agree what a sorry
state the church is in, not least of all the insipid homilies. If one knows anything about true
apparitions, one would know about Our Lady's request to say the daily Rosary with Her intentions of the
"conversion of poor sinners" & praying for "the pope, the bishops & the priests". Also one would accept the
crosses of daily life, including the heartbreak associated with watered down worship (if we are unable
to do anything about it) in a spirit of penance, as requested by Her.
Mr. JC, as her father, did you not tell your daughter about the importance of having her marriage blessed?
I am sure that your prayers gave her the desire to go to confession.. She herself must have felt the need
to go to confession.. But how could the priest forgive her sins if she has no firm purpose of
amendment - continuing living outside of the Church?
You as her father have a unique position to encourage her to have the marriage blessed, but what does it
appear that you have done instead? You have "badmouthed" this particular priest that was only
doing his duty (thanks be to God). You told your daughter a lie that Jesus will forgive her sins,
(Jesus set up the conditions -Whose sin you shall forgive, (or loose) they are forgiven,).
You gave her the "go ahead" to abandon the little Catholic Faith she has left. Read what Jesus says
about those who lead His little ones astray... She is indeed a little one who was seeking God. You, who
supposedly have "found Him" should take this little lamb to have her marriage blessed, & tell her the
wonders of Divine Mercy.
May God enlighten you to His Truth, dear JC.
We have addressed your question/concern in a new document titled The Kingdom of Heaven and Its Keys.
But as a preamble to your particular communication...
"Fancy degrees" are not a
requirement to See and Hear. The original twelve chosen by Jesus
did not have "Fancy degrees". Actually, said degrees interfere with God
working through a soul - Saul-turned-Paul was a first and well known
example. Just as m de P
realized at his moment of Flash
- true wisdom is only of and
from God and is only available to those who make a home for the Holy
Spirit of God in their souls. Unfortunately, the Rome missed that
and focused on "Book Wisdom" - a "Wisdom" which has very
value in the true Kingdom of God. The
State of the
is our witness.
will not entertain nor print any rebuttal from JC. All that needs to be
said about this issue has been said by miguel de Portugal in The
Kingdom of Heaven and Its Keys
We thank both for the opportunity to clarify many points that need
clarification for many before it becomes too late to do so.

Do you have an opinion how a penitent should approach his or her
confession for Divine Mercy Sunday? Should one simply mention
one's sins in general terms, or should the confessing of them be very
detailed? I want to thank God publicly in this forum for His
unfathomable gifts of mercy and love.
Thank you for the opportunity to address this most important issue
which is applicable to every Sacrament of Reconciliation. We will
preface our recommendation with a true and brief story told to m de p
by old priest friend.
was this priest that came to me for confession and who gave so much
detail about his sins that I had to tell him that he was sinning all
over again through the detailed manner he was recounting his misdeeds."
Moral of this true story - enumeration
of sin by categories; i.e., lack of charity, impatience, impure
thoughts, adultery. Then, general frequency; i.e. many times,
seldom. Next, how it is handled; i.e. "Impure thoughts poured in
but I dismiss them immediately"; or "I slipped and committed adultery
once (that is - with the same individual)".
The confessor does not need to know the contents of the impure
thoughts, nor how shapely and desirable was your neighbor.
In case of masturbation - only qualify whether it was "a one person
orgy with I MAX visual effects" or simply a relieving a physical urge
with a "blank mind".
In the case of lying - qualify the severity of the type of lies you are
prone to tell and the general consequences.
Reject any notion such as the traditional "old (Catholic) wives tale"
that "A sin is a sin"; a completely heretical notion stating that a
murder counts as much as a minor lie or impure thoughts. Such
ridiculous notions only drive away the penitent from God and not to
spiritual healing. (*)
In summary - what God desires is a true contrite heart and a
burning desire to sin no more; not another "old (Catholic) wives tale" such
"I will sin no more". Anyone who states that, already did sin - he/she
With your express desire to do what is right by writing to us
"you are already half-way there!"

A word about the "on the scene" reporter at the Passion of Christ: (*)

inserting qualifiers from the reporter's own belief-system adds a
weight of believability for those unable or unwilling to think for
"the Roman soldiers nailed a sign on
the cross, apparently
to better mock Jesus..."
part of Satan's plan to desensitize the world to the true suffering of
Jesus and to his sacrifice for us all... and to close up the minds of
those who might otherwise be open to "seeing and hearing"
Thank you for providing the vehicle to make crystal clear the purpose
of the referred to (*) publication.
Our point was to precisely highlight "....satan's plan to desensitize
the world to the true suffering..." of the world
(NOT of the
Passion of Christ) as we watch the news of misery day in and day out
with ever increasing indifference.
By doing this, he fully cooperates in the hardening of our hearts and
in the practical death of any charity that we may have had.
Of course, satan does not miss a single opportunity to downgrade the
importance of the sacrifice Jesus offered to give mankind an opportunity
(not a free
ticket!) to Eternal Life - the
world wide effort to sanctify Judas
Iscariot being one glaring example
; however, we do not believe that
such was the intent of the author. Without "placing words in his mouth"

charity of many shall grow cold. [Matthew 24]
"Iniquity" means "injustice".
Injustice means allowing the death of over five million people in the
world, every year, because they are too poor to live, and ignoring over
a billion children of God who live in near sub human condition - while

Rosary, and talking Eucharist" but, "Who helps?", "Who goes to visit?"
I'm sorry. I don't know HOW to help. How do I help
you? How does a child help a father.
As for visiting the Eucharist... all of our Catholic Churches in
Detroit are locked. Our little independent parish meets in a
chapel and our priest brings the wafer to be consecrated with him.
I want to do more. I know that more is needed. I don''t
I already feel like a waste of skin one week out of every month, (that
seems to be the cycle of my depressions) but I will try to do
more. Tell me.
No pity party here either. Rome doesn't want me in their church,
and I found another, but HERE, they lock church doors, something that
as a child I was told would never happen.
As for talking Rosary... I think you already know my family's story,
but if you tell me there is more for me to do, I will.
Yours in Christ
Dearest brother in Christ - if a small fraction of those who call
themselves Catholics would try half as hard as you do
to draw closer to
God and to fulfill His Will in your life, the world would not be in the
condition that it is today.
God measures the contribution of each of His children in accordance to
their (real) ability to contribute. How can you adore the Blessed
Sacrament if the Church doors are locked? Regarding all else....
(1) You are bringing your wife and
daughter to God - by word and deed.
(2) You are praying and offering your suffering so that we may fulfill
the Will of God through the hands of miguel de Portugal.
(3) You assiduously review and act upon what we publish in His Name.
(4) You pray for others who are still lost.
We have nothing else to request from you other than to continue to do
what you are doing and He will guide you to the next step, and next,
May He continue to Bless and Guide you!

not understand the Catholic

the fact that they have not been taught those realities; however, but
for the Catholics that all they do is "talk Mary", "talk Rosary" and

From GMcE @
on April 4th]
Given the lateness of the hour and the necessity
upon each of us to get our relationship with God moving in the right
direction, I would ask you to give some consideration to posting two
devotional items on your website which would be of great help to those
who like me are struggling to fight their way through to God.
The first is "The Secret of Mary" by Saint Louis
DeMontfort which offers a sure way to sanctity for those who can follow
it's requirements, and to those who succeed in undertaking this
devotion to the fullest extent possible, the prospect of the mystical
divine union of the soul with God is held to be possible.
The second is fifteen prayers Our Lord gave to
St Bridget of Sweden which is to be offered every day for a year ( 365
* 15 = 5475). This is calculated to be one prayer each to
honour the number of the blows Our Lord received during his
passion. The fifteen promises attached to those who complete this
devotion are absolutely magnificent in their generosity and would
appear to guarantee salvation to those who manage to complete it.
I have downloaded both of these from the web and
will gladly forward them to your web address for large emails if you so
I would also ask you to provide your usual
insightful analysis of each devotion as there are some points which to
me at least require clarification as to their meaning, in particular
the De Montfort article. If you decide to go ahead with this I will
amplify this question in my next email.
We thank you for your concern and effort; however, invoking the concept
in the Lazarus' parable...

and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 But he said: No, father Abraham: but if
one went to them from the dead, they will do penance. 31
And he said to him: If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither
will they believe, if one rise again from the dead. [Luke 16]
....we do not see the need to add those two devotions to what we
recommend in His Name. We are quite familiar with both devotions,
yet we know
that the assiduous prayer of the Holy Rosary
devotions of the Stations
of the Cross
, the First
of the Month,
the First Saturday
of the Month, the Chaplet of Mercy
and the Chaplet
surpass any other devotion in assisting in the
of our souls.
In addition, we have published a series of prayers and
which, when offered as all prayers should be offered, from the heart,
cannot be resisted by God Who will bestow many, many Graces to those
have recourse to them.
Thus, paraphrasing Abraham: If they
hear not nor respond to what we have already recommended, neither
will they act upon, if we offer yet another devotion.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to make the offer to our

First- Thank you for answering the
call of God.
I think it would help if there were
more documents about talking to
others about what's to come and how to prepare themselves and the ones
that they love both physically and spiritually.
I myself and having
difficulty bringing up the subject of Jesus and God to others, most
think it is a joke or nothing to be concerned with at the time.
ones who know me best will not listen when I explain to them some
the "behind the scenes" things that are going on.
I realize that it may
not be according to God's will at the time, but I certainly want

I will continue to pray on this
and I know that my prayers will be answered in due time.
May God continue to bless the work
that you do now and at the end of these times

In reference to our recent publications about Archer's book: The Gospel
of Judas, VR writes:
Father forgive them. They know not what they do.
...OR DO THEY?

Only those possessed by demons would knowingly crucify God in the Flesh
or publish (or allow to publish when he/she has the power and responsibility to stop
it) a book like Archer's blasphemy.
Of course, we must consider that man has repeatedly shown over history
that he/she has an infinite capacity for stupidity (when God is not the fundamental rock
of his/her life).
