May the Peace of God and the Consolation of the Immaculate Heart
of Mary find repose in the souls of those who will read this document.
As of this date, June 14/15, 1996, there is no evidence that the
prior exhortations to rapidly implement, throughout the Universal
Church, the requests from Heaven (1)(2) have
been appropriately heeded.
Instead, we are witnessing the alteration of some Heavenly
Messages and the outright fabrication of others in fulfillment of: "The
serpent, however, spewed a torrent of water out of his mouth after the
woman to sweep her away with the current." [Revelation
With the notable exception of the actions taken by the Roman
Catholic Church in Portugal (3), it appears that
no other major Episcopal Conference is taking the necessary steps to
rapidly implement the directives insisted upon by Heaven. These
directives may be summed up in one sentence:
Stop living off the Gospel and start living the Gospel.
BACKGROUND and SUMMARY
The controlling members of the Hierarchy have unduly hampered the
manifestation and implementation of the Magisterial exhortations of the
Church, and have downplayed the examples of the holy and devoted Popes
of this century.
Furthermore, they have impeded the clear requests of Our Lord
Jesus Christ regarding the universal implementation of Devotion to His
Greatest Attribute: Mercy.
It was well established, in the referenced correspondence (4), that failure to respond
to the pleas from Heaven through the Fatima, Portugal, apparitions
already cost the world over 100 million lives and untold suffering.
To deny this responsibility would automatically confirm the other
side of the coin: The Apparitions were not true.
Were the Apparitions not true, the Controlling Hierarchy of the
Roman Catholic Church would then be responsible for exploiting the
unsuspecting faithful through emotional manipulation, by promoting
devotions stemming from said Apparition.
A parallel and more dramatic case to that of Fatima may be
encountered with the failure to respond to Our Lord requests regarding
the Devotion to His Unfathomable Mercy. The centerpiece of said
Devotion being the establishment, within the Roman Catholic Church, the
Feast of Mercy.
The consequence of the persistent refusal to energetically
promote the greatest of God's attribute, Mercy, is the crux of this
particular communication. By failing to do this, poor and aching
humanity will have to suffer even more to achieve the level of
conversion established from all Eternity for the End of These Times.
Be it known to all men that those who, through action or
omission, are responsible for such unnecessary suffering, shall be held
accountable before the Just God. This accountability shall commence
before they physically expire.
Between the years 1931 and 1938 our Lord Jesus Christ
communicated to Sister Faustina Kowalska, a Polish Nun, that:
(a) The Feast of Mercy be established
by the Universal Church and celebrated on the Second Sunday of Easter.
(b) That His Mercy be extolled far and
wide to encourage repentance and confidence in sinners in preparation
for His Second Coming.
(c) That "Mankind will not have peace
until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy."
What has happened regarding these requests?
(a) The devotion to the Divine Mercy
was finally approved in 1978.
(b) Pope John Paul II, instrumental in the establishment of said
Devotion as Cardinal Wojtyla, devoted an entire Encyclical, Dives in
Misericordia, in the third year of his Pontificate, extolling the Mercy
(c) Sister Faustina was Beatified by the Roman Catholic Church on 1991.
This action essentially placed a seal of "Worthy of Belief" to her
writings as published in 1973.
Today, June 14/15, 1996, 58 years after the death of Sister Faustina,
18 years after the approval of the Devotion to the Divine Mercy and 5
years after Sister Faustina Beatification, all we have to show for is
the great effort, but limited in Universal scope, of the Congregation
of Marians of the Immaculate Conception, Stockbridge, Massachusets
(U.S.A.) to promote said Devotion. May God Bless them richly!
In the meantime the world continues to race toward its ruin and
the Roman Catholic Church continues to have Her hands tied by those who
have their own personal agendas to promote.
Not only the controlling Hierarchy of the Church must accept the
responsibility for not acting on a timely basis regarding the requests
made during the Fatima Apparitions, but, once the nuclear holocaust
manifests itself plunging the world into a nightmare...
The controlling Hierarchy of the
Church will also have to assume the moral liability for such
catastrophe and suffer the physical consequence for its omissions.
Our Lord clearly and emphatically said to Sister Faustina:
"Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy."
The fate of Jerusalem, the Temple "Hierarchy", and of the Temple
itself for having rejected Jesus Christ and His disciples will be
repeated once again in a more universal and devastating scope; our sin
is far greater than the sin of those who crucified Our Lord.
Can we expect that the controlling "Temple" Hierarchy of These
Times be spared of the consequence of having abandoned the Truth and,
because of fear, betrayed its Creator?
The originally Chosen People were not spared and theirs was a
lesser sin. Why should we, when we even mock the Mercy of God by our
It is a tragedy that some outstanding members of the Hierarchy,
Priests and Religious will have to suffer for the greed and arrogance
of a selected few. However, such are the demands of Divine Justice.
The consoling reward for their martyrdom was related to us by
Saint John and it may be found in Revelations, Chapter 20, Verse 4.
May the blood of the innocent be upon the head of all of those
who have impeded the exercise and manifestation of the Mercy of God
upon His poor ailing children.
I am truly sorry, but consoled. The warnings which are demanded
by the Infinite Mercy of God have been many, clear and widely presented
to those who are in a position of power. Nonetheless, I will continue
to pray daily for those responsible for muffling the voices from
Heaven. It is my duty and Christian responsibility.
Beyond that, I, miguel de Portugal, a servant of God, wash my
hands of the the nightmare that will be unleashed upon the world,
Christianity and specifically, the Roman Catholic Church.

This document is primarily written for those individuals conversant
with the Roman Catholic Faith. Others will need to research some of the
tenets of said Faith as well as the records of some key Supernatural
Manifestations which are part of the Roman Catholic Faith and Tradition.
