As John the Baptist prepared the way for the first coming of Jesus; God has sent His Mother, the Queen of Prophets, in these last times as Prophetess...... Mary prepares the way for His second coming. Those souls who are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be victorious.
St Louis de Montfort states that the saints of the last days will be the greatest of all saints. They will surpass the other saints throughout history because they will have devotion to the Mother of God, which is the secret to true sanctity and holiness. Montfort also states: The souls who are richest in graces will be most assiduous in praying to our Blessed Lady and in having her always present as their perfect model for imitation and their powerful aid for help.
"These great [consecrated] souls, full of grace and zeal shall be chosen to match themselves against the enemies of God, who shall rage on all sides; and they shall be singularily devout to our Blessed Lady, illuminated by her light, strengthened with her nourishment, led by her spirit, supported by her arm and sheltered under her protection, so that they shall fight with one hand and build with the other."
"With one hand they shall fight, overthrow and crush the heretics with their heresies, the schismatics with their schisms, the idolators with their idolitries, and the sinners with their impieties. With their other hand they shall build the temple of the true Solomon and the mystical city of God, that is to say, the most holy Virgin, called by the Fathers "The Temple of Solomon" and the "City of God". By their words and examples they shall draw the whole world to true devotion to Mary. This shall bring upon them many enemies, but shall also bring many victories and much glory for God alone.
"This is what God revealed to St Vincent Ferrer...This city which men shall find at the end of the world to convert themselves in, and to satisfy the hunger they have for justice, is the most holy Virgin, who is called by the Holy Ghost the "City of God"
(Ps. 86) CONSECRATION TO MARY.
“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.” Hebrews 6:4
This is how much of Protestantism grows...people leave the Catholic faith due to moral (sexual) issues. One need only look at their own extended family to see ex-Catholics who are "born again" and somehow become loosed from the hard sayings of Jesus. This is a thoroughly disgusting story of compromise and betrayal, and for what?-- a fleeting passion which will one day wilt away and destroy him. God have mercy--we get the priests we deserve!
MIAMI (AP) — A popular Miami priest and media personality known as "Father Oprah" has left the Catholic Church and joined the Episcopal Church after he was photographed cavorting on the beach with his girlfriend.
The Rev. Alberto Cutie (KOO'-tee-ay) was removed from his Miami Beach church after photos of him kissing and embracing a woman appeared in the pages of a Spanish-language magazine earlier this month.
He was received into Episcopal Church in a ceremony Thursday Read More...

AND there's more...A Male nurse of 40 years has been fired after urging a 'patient' to go to church (in a training session)
"A nurse has been sacked after suggesting during a role play session on a training course that a 'patient' could go to church to relieve stress.
Anand Rao, 71, a committed Christian, was taking part in an exercise to see if he would advise a wife with a serious heart condition about how to reduce stress.
Mr Rao, who has 40 years' nursing experience, said: 'The "patient" told me that her doctor had informed her that she would not live long and this had created stress.
'I called on my spiritual point of view and told her it would be wise to go to church to ease her stress and if God wished she might live a little longer.'
It is understood the 'patient' did not feel his advice was sympathetic or suitable.
The course organiser, Leicestershire and Rutland Organisation for the Relief of Suffering, then sent a report to Mr Rao's employer, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, where he had worked as a bank staff nurse for four years.
He was later dismissed for breaching the Nursing and Midwifery Council's code of conduct on respecting a patient's dignity.
Mr Rao, of Leicester, a married father-of-one who moved to the UK from India 40 years ago, said he was treated in a 'heavy-handed and disproportionate' way.
He is considering taking legal action for religious discrimination against his former employers and has instructed the Christian Legal Centre to advise him. SOURCE
"It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His Read More...
THE HAGUE (AFP)--Far-right Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders lost a legal bid Wednesday to stop his pending trial for inciting hatred and discrimination against Muslims.
"The attorney general is of the opinion that there are no grounds" for a further appeal, the Dutch Supreme Court said in a statement.
Lawyers for Wilders had sought to overturn a ruling by the Amsterdam Court of Appeals in January that he should be prosecuted for a series of public anti- Muslim statements, particularly for comparing Islam to Nazism.
"It is a political process," Wilders responded in a statement on the Web site of his Freedom Party, or PVV, which has nine out of 150 seats in parliament.
"I am being prosecuted for saying about Islam what millions of Dutch think. Freedom of expression is at risk of being offered at the altar of Islam."
"...Wilders has called for the banning of the Koran in the Netherlands, calling it "fascist."
In June last year, the prosecutor's office said "Fitna," though offensive to Muslims, didn't give rise to a punishable offense.
It dismissed dozens of complaints received from around the country, saying Wilders' utterances were made in the context of public debate.
But the appeals court ruled six months later that politicians, given their special responsibility, ought not to be permitted to make "statements which create hate and grief," and ordered the prosecution to put Wilders on trial.
The Secret Service's report contains additional warnings:
*Increasing numbers of Islamic fundamentalists - mostly second generation immigrants and radical converts - are travelling from Germany to Pakistan to visit terror camps run by al-Qaeda and other similar groups.
*German interests at home and abroad are in danger. The report reveals that Germany is an 'immediate target' for Islamist terror groups.
*The internet is the most important communication and propaganda instrument – and terror groups are getting more professional at using it.
The report also gave several other warnings:
*There was a marked rise in the number of radical right-wing crimes - up 15.8 per cent to 19,894, of which more than 1,000 were violent. Particularly dangerous are the ‘autonomous Nationalists’ who gather at demonstrations as the so-called ‘Black block’ and cause violent clashes with left-wing demonstrators.
*The number of crimes by left-wing supporters also rose in 2008 to 3,124, up from 2,765 in the previous year. Some 701 of those crimes were violent. SOURCE
The secular relativists will predictably capitulate to the demands for a parallel society which grants Muslims their own rule of law because they are unable and unwilling to discern between good and evil, and refuse to condemn that which will destroy them. And in the course of this suicidal capitulation to Islam one need not be a prophet to see that eventually these same relativists will use anti-terrorism laws against law abiding Christians.
"The heart of liturgical worship is the Mass. Just as the redemptive work of Jesus reached its culminating point on Calvary by His death on the Cross, so too the liturgical action, which continues His work in the world, has its climax in the Mass, which renews and perpetuates on our altars the Sacrifice of the Cross. Jesus has willed that the precious fruits of redemption...be applied and transmitted to each of the faithful in a particular way by their participation in the Eucharistic Sacrifice. This fountain of grace which Jesus opened on Calvary continues to pour over our altars; all the faithful are obliged to approach it...Holy Mass is truly the "fountain of life". By offering and immolating Himself continually on our altars, Jesus repeats to us, "If any man thirst let him come to Me and drink."
The Sacrifice of the Altar "is not merely a commemoration of the Passion and Death of Christ, but is a true and proper sacrifice, in which, by immolating Himself in an unbloody manner, the great high priest renews His previous act on the Cross. The Victim is the same, so is the Priest, nothing but the manner of offering is different -- bloody on the Cross, unbloody Read More...
This is supposed to come as a surprise. But it won't to those who are aware of the destructive effects of sin, hedonism, and the homosexual lifestyle. These are the kind of people who are currently recruiting and promoting homosexuality to children in the public school system.
A jury in Edinburgh found the chief executive of LGBT Youth Scotland, James Rennie, 38, guilty of sex attacks on children. Rennie was involved in a ring of child pornography and child sexual abuse, along with 8 other men.
