Points to Ponder About

The purpose of Points to Ponder About was to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented Faithful back to God and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth. (For a more detailed explanation, see Points to Ponder About - Purpose). What used to be posted in this section has been integrated in For Your Information and Reference.

Note: This 'Point to Ponder About' section was prepared in the years 2005-2009. Some linked documents external to this domain may have been removed from the Net, or moved to different locations, since then.

Do you ever wonder... what he means and by whose authority miguel de Portugal refers to certain Ecclesiastic Administrators as Spiritual Bastards?

Those who meditated upon the Mass Readings for March 28th would have read John 8: 31-42:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews, who believed him: If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered him: We are the seed of Abraham, and we have never been slaves to any man: how sayest thou: you shall be free? 34 Jesus answered them: Amen, amen I say unto you: that whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. 35 Now the servant abideth not in the house for ever; but the son abideth for ever.

36 If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. 37 I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. 38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father. 39 They answered, and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them: If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham. 40 But now you seek to kill me, a man who have spoken the truth to you, which I have heard of God. This Abraham did not.
41 You do the works of your father. They said therefore to him: We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, even God. 42 Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of myself, but he sent me:

Please, do take note that Jesus was speaking to "...those Jews, who believed him:..."

May those who have Eyes, See and Ears, Hear.

Do you ever wonder... what Mary really meant when She told the Fatima children:

"To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russian will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated; in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world. In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will be preserved,.... Do not tell this to anybody. Francisco, yes, you may tell him." [Whole Text, in English and Portuguese, is Item B in ATTACHMENT II]

Did she only mean communism or was there something else? What errors was She speaking about which prompted Her to close with the statement: In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will be preserved?

Could She have been referring to the true poison of the Faith which was birthed by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, a Russian, and which was the precursor of The New Age Movement and all deviations springing from it like the United Religions Initiative?

Think about it.....

Do you ever wonder..... when Jesus said from the cross: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." if the Temple Administrators perhaps knew what they were doing?

No, they did not... unless they were fully possessed by satan. Only satan would attempt to cause pain and suffering to God in the flesh (he knows good and well that he could not kill Him). A mere human would have to be totally insane to, knowingly, crucify God in the human flesh.

Do you ever wonder..... exactly what we mean when we refer to the Church Administrator's "poor Evangelizing effort"? We shall explain:

Without agreeing with the new and strong currents which grants Mary Magdalene the Primacy over the chosen Apostles nor with those who are pushing for women in the Priesthood, we cannot deny that the role of women in the New Testament has been greatly downplayed for the benefit of male dominance.

In today's reading [Solemnity of St. Joseph] we read (quoting from The USCCB published readings for the day):

Reading 1
[2 Samuel 7:4-5a, 12-14a, 16]

The LORD spoke to Nathan and said: “Go, tell my servant David, ‘When your time comes and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your heir after you, sprung from your loins, and I will make his kingdom firm. It is he who shall build a house for my name. And I will make his royal throne firm forever. I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me. Your house and your kingdom shall endure forever before me; your throne shall stand firm forever.’”


[Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24a]

Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ. (These two sentences are not part of the Scriptures but in the USCCB page it appears to be part of the reading.)

Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, etc.

As part of the Christmas readings we read:

[Luke 2:4]

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David,

The confusing message is that Joseph had to be the real father of Jesus since he is the one highlighted as being from the House of David and "...Go, tell my servant David, ‘When your time comes and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your heir after you, sprung from your loins, and I will make his kingdom firm..." and "...because he was of the house and family of David,"

The fulfillment of the Prophecy spoken for through Samuel comes through Mary Who was also of the House of David and symbolically - just symbolically - through Joseph.

Do you ever wonder..... why the Faithful keep chasing after the latest Marian Apparition or latest "seer" message when all that Mary has had to say and request has been said and requested many times already?

For the same reason people keep seeking for the "miracle diet" when all they have to do is eat less, eat healthy food and exercise regularly.

With Heaven there is no "easy way out" just like there is no easy way out of excess weight.

25 For it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. [Luke 18]

But, if you ask....

26 Who then can be saved? [Mark 10]

He answered that too....

27 With men it is impossible; but not with God: for all things are possible with God. [Mark 10]

Which is what Mary has been trying to get across to the Faithful through the Church Administration since the beginning of the 19th Century

At least, one thing that you do not have to wonder about is where the world is heading too....

Do you ever wonder..... how deceitful can satan be? Wonder no more - Everywhere there is a strong Pro Life movement everyone is exhorted to pray for the victims of abortion... meaning, the aborted babies... when the real victims, the ones whose souls are at stake, are the mothers seeking the death of their children and those who assist her in doing so.

Thus, we pray for the souls of the baby, whose only sin was their personal version of the original sin, and we do not pray for those who need it the most. Score is, once again: satan 1; disoriented Faithful 0

While, with his right hand is directing the above snare, with his left hand he is making sure that the noise made about abortion drowns the horrendous cries to Heaven caused by the destruction of souls through child sexual abuse.

Updated score: satan 2; disoriented Faithful 0

....and so it goes, but, since precious few "know our face", satan's score will continue to increase until God gives mankind an unequivocal and final warning - a preview of which "the faceless one" already experienced; a warning which will not be survived by many due to the condition of the souls of most.

Do you ever wonder..... If the person occupying the "seat of Peter", the papacy is "chosen by God" thorough the vote by the council of voting cardinals, how is it possible for a "false pope" or a person "not worthy" pope to occupy the papacy occur?

This pope stands in place of Jesus, who is the head of the Church. Why would God let anyone "not worthy" occupy this seat since this person is responsible for the doctrines of the Faith, and we are to accept the pope as the head of the Church and an authority on the Faith?

The answer is simpler than it appears. First, we refer the reader to the First Book of KINGS 22: 1-38. In there you will see how God allows satan to deceive those who were seeking His Word through certain prophets. Why? Simply because they knew what they wanted to do and really did not care about the Will of God. They were just going through the motions. Just like most conclaves have been for centuries. If you read miguel de Portugal's report on his trip to Rome during the last conclave you will see how all was carefully (and obvious to those who have eyes) staged.

Do you now wonder why we continue to uphold and promote the Catholic Faith with its invaluable Sacraments in spite of the less-than-desirables who have occupied the Chair of Peter and the highest positions in the Church Administration such as Levada and Egan, just to mention two of many?

As we have said often - even satan must serve God and, since God would not allow, under any circumstances, that His Elect be deprived of the benefits of the Pristine Catholic Faith at these most critical times, the Faith has been mostly untouched by those filthy hands.

Do you ever wonder..... why the Faithful has more and more reason to be confused an disoriented?

Take a look at what we read in a Detroit alternative newspaper (*) and from which we quote: ands wonder no more....

"Father Samonie says what he witnessed as a boy made him powerfully aware, for the first time, of a spirit world. Throughout his childhood and his 50-year career as a Roman Catholic priest — at nine metro Detroit parishes — Samonie didn't talk much about that day, but it was the first of many episodes that eventually changed his views about religion..

He made his story public in 1998, when, he says, Jesus granted him permission to publish a tell-all book, On My Way Home. He's written four books since. The latest, Rite of Passage, comes out this month, and he's got another already in manuscript form about the teachings of Edgar Cayce, a clairvoyant and well-known author who claimed to be able to answer questions about the meaning of the universe and countless other topics through a process of self-induced hypnosis."


"Father Jay bridges the gap between fundamentalists and spiritualists, he brings it all together."

Schmaltz and his partner Rich Wedeking are hunting for a distributor for Light and looking into getting it on the film festival circuit.

Here's a man of the cloth — a Roman Catholic priest, no less — who thinks Lucifer's gotten a "bum rap" and believes in a perpetual cycle of reincarnation. He looks for truth on his own terms.

Samonie has a doctoral degree in metaphysics from University of Detroit and two master's degrees. He meditates and practices yoga — has been for more than four decades — and his quest for truth has led him to study Eastern traditions in which religion coincides with personal mystical experiences. But it took him years to come to terms with the out-of-body sensations — the visions, the visits from spirit guides and spontaneous trances that brought to his mind vivid memories of past lives as a concert pianist, a Mayan architect and the 17th century painter Diego Velásquez.

As fantastic as his tales seem, it's hard not to believe the man. He's a persuasive and witty storyteller, and he's extremely intelligent without being at all arrogant. He speaks Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, Spanish, French and German. He teaches about the importance of following your conscience no matter what the Bible says, and lectures on the difference between being religious and being spiritual. Remember: He's a Catholic priest. He's been reported for heresy by his peers ("fine gentlemen," Samonie calls them) four times, and yet he considers those charges "credits." Samonie's unassuming and humble, someone you can't easily dismiss as a wacko."

[Comment: He claims past life recall ... and one of these was as a Mayan:]

"After finally taking priesthood vows in 1956, he studied in Mexico City, living at a seminary called El Seminario Conciliar. He visited the nearby pyramids of Teotihuacán. It was there that he recounts his first past-life vision. In On My Way Home, he describes the episode from another lifetime:

I remember seeing a flash of light from the camera when she took the picture. I started to go join the tour group. However, the most amazing thing happened! I said to myself, "What is this? What's going on?" I looked at my arms. They were very dark. I then noticed I had only a loin cloth around my waist. I felt my hair. It was straight and jet black. I kept saying to myself "I'm a Mayan. How can this be? I am Jay Samonie. How did I get here? And how do I get back?"

As I was standing there in a state of complete confusion someone came up to me speaking in another tongue, not Mayan. Nevertheless, I understood perfectly and told him to how to place a large block in place. The stone must have weighed several tons. ... I was actually doing the work of an architect supervising the construction of two rows of structures that eventually joined the two pyramids."

Samonie writes that two women found him standing, unresponsive, with his head tilted to the right. Later that day, his tour guide told him that it was possible the architects of the pyramids were Mayan."

[Comment: The journalist ... and it seems, the priest ... claim that the Church accepted reincarnation for the first 5 centuries. ]

"Scholars say reincarnation was acknowledged in Christianity and in the Bible, until 553 AD, when Justinian, Emperor of the Eastern Empire in Constantinople, and his wife Empress Theodora, had the references taken out. By some accounts, they burned all the Bibles and had them rewritten because Theodora was afraid she was going to return loaded down with bad karma for, among other things, working previously as a courtesan and promoting ethical treatment of prostitutes.

Samonie says he's not alone in his beliefs. Two well-noted examples he cites are Cardinal Desire Joseph Mercier, an early 20th century leader who became the Belgian spokesman against German occupation during World War I, and Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk and author ordained as a Roman Catholic priest."

"Father Jay never preached about his personal experiences in church services, but Eastern philosophies, including reincarnation, came up in workshops he taught. During the late '70s and early '80s, while working at Holy Trinity, Samonie taught classes in the Silva Method of Mind Development and Stress Control, which focuses on meditation, healing, positive thinking and memory techniques to sharpen the mind. "

"But Samonie established his own reputation at Holy Trinity. While continuing the free medical and legal clinics and Kern's open-door policy for helping the poor, he also founded the Manna Soup Kitchen, a program that continues to feed the public. Samonie served for five years as the director of the Pastoral Team for the Hispanic Apostolate, which founded Latin Americans for Social, Economic Development (LASED), and hosted the first pilot project for Alternative for Girls, a 20-year-old local program that provides support, shelter and counseling to high-risk young women and girls. In 1989, Samonie was officially appointed by Michigan Gov. James Blanchard to serve on the Judicial Tenure Commission, a group that oversees the conduct Michigan judges. Samonie was the first priest to be appointed to the commission.

Despite his reputation in the community, Samonie's career has been contentious because he promoted the notion that an individual's personal conscience is superior to any rulebook, saying that the Bible is full of metaphorical teachings. That's not so controversial today, with many priests putting their careers on the line to speak out against the policies of this country and the church. But in the 1950s and '60s, Samonie was delving into ideas that weren't church-approved. In 1963, Samonie says he got some backup, when the Second Vatican Council "let some fresh air in," calling for an examination of all the church doctrines, but many clung to conservative notions."
