These Last Days News - January 8, 2017

Francis Goes to War with the Knights of Malta to Weaken Cardinal Burke Ahead of the Formal Correction of Amoris Laetitia...

"I see that the high priests of the House of God have become soft in their ways. They cater to their bodies and do not wish to sacrifice and make penance. There will be no easy road to the Kingdom. They will get down on their knees, and they will starve their worldly bodies until they rid themselves of the demons within them.
     "Unless you listen now to my words of caution, you will fall into the trap that is being set for you. The enemy is within the House of God. He will seek to remove your Vicar from among you, and when he does he will place a man of dark secrets upon the Seat of Peter!"
- St. Thomas Aquinas, August 21, 1972

“Rome will lose the faith and will become the seat of Antichrist.” – Our Lady of La Salette, September 19, 1846

"Without the number of prayers needed to balance the scale and acts of reparation from the children of earth, there will be placed upon the Seat of Peter one who will put and place souls and the House of God into deep darkness." - Our Lady, March 18, 1974

FR. GERALD MURRAY and ROBERT ROYAL... join Raymond Arroyo of EWTN to discuss the current state of the controversial ³dubia² that four leading cardinals raised with Pope Francis in an effort to clarify the Apostolic Exhortation - Amoris Laetitia, the recent personnel changes at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and all the latest news from the Vatican.

 

TLDM editor's note: The following article is long, but very much worth the read. Here is a short summary. The Knight of Malta are a sovereign Catholic Order. They discovered that one of their top members Albrecht von Boeselager was involved in the distribution of condoms and contraceptives in Burma. The leadership of the Knights asked the offender to resign, but he refused. As a result, he was removed from his position. Once Francis learned of this, he announced that he wanted a commission to look into the matter. This is illegal because the Holy See and Knights of Malta are both sovereign states. It appears that Francis is trying to use this as an opportunity to attack Cardinal Burke, who is just days away from releasing a formal correction on Amoris Laetitia.

RemnantNewspaper.com reported on December 28, 2016 :

by Hilary White

Over the Christmas weekend, as the Catholic world was otherwise occupied, the Francismachine made a move against the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta that seems to have perplexed many observers. The Holy See announced it would launch a “commission” to investigate the firing of one of the Knights’ leaders, sacked recently after it was revealed he had been allowing the distribution of condoms in Myanmar. In various venues, we saw Catholics responding with much confusion to the announcement and it quickly became clear that most Catholics don’t have a good handle on what, exactly, the Knights of Malta are or why Bergoglio may have overstepped his lawful prerogatives.

The affair is very unlikely to be over, but at the moment things have paused after the Knights issued a public statement on December 23rd to the effect that the Holy See has no lawful jurisdiction and needed to mind its own affairs, a stand that might come as something of a shock to many American Catholic readers who tend to assume that a pope has no legal limits with regards to a Catholic organisation.

Many observers – especially those who have not followed the increasingly byzantine proceedings over Amoris Laetitia – seem to have been left behind by this latest hairpin turn. The confusion has not been much helped by the only coverage we have had so far, which has come from sources with a self-evidently anti-doctrinal bias [1].

The main facts, however, are simple. The Knights of Malta serve in our times as a charitable aid organization in many developing countries, doing mainly healthcare work and disaster relief. Their foreign aid branch is called the Maltesers International, and is under the guidance of the Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Malta, one of a leadership body of three offices. The other two are the Grand Master, head of the whole Order, and the Grand Commander. 

Recently, the Grand Master removed the Chancellor – a German aristocrat named Albrecht von Boeselager, who has strong connections with the German hierarchy and the Holy See – because under his watch, the Maltesers or their affiliates were revealed to have been distributing contraceptives. Boeselager complained to his friends and the Holy See’s Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin, announced that a “commission” would be appointed to investigate the matter. Boeselager also went to the press, complaining that he had been accused of being “a liberal Catholic” and failing to either believe or uphold Catholic moral teaching.

The business is complicated, however, because it involves a few very ancient artifacts and legal realities of Catholic life unfamiliar to our modern, egalitarian mindset; mainly that the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta is no mere charitable aid organisation in the modern sense. Nor is it just a religious order that can be suppressed at a papal whim.

Boeselager was removed from his office of Chancellor not only because he had allowed the distribution of contraceptives, but, much more seriously, because he had attempted to cover up his complicity and had refused a direct order from both his religious superior and from his sovereign lord, the Grand Master of the Knights of Malta, Fra. Matthew Festing.

Most North Americans have more or less forgotten all about feudalism, and think of kings and queens and knights as relegated to the pages of fairy tales. But, though the form is almost extinct, the Knights of Malta – founded in the 11th century to help pilgrims in the Holy Land – remain today a legal entity equivalent to a state, a country, though one without very much territory; hence the word “sovereign” in the name. The three main officers, the Grand Master, the Chancellor and the Grand Commander, all carry Knights of Malta passports that are recognised by 120 countries all over the world.

To get an idea of what sort of thing the Knights are, it is noteworthy that the correct form of address for Fra. (meaning “brother”) Matthew Festing, is “His Most Eminent Highness, Prince and Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.” His official residence, the Palazzo Malta in Rome, is recognised by the Italian government as “extraterritoriale,” meaning it is officially a separate country from Italy. And from the Holy See.

This means that an attempt by Secretary of State of the Holy See – another sovereign state – to interfere with the internal governance of the Knights would be roughly the equivalent of the Obama administration appointing a commission to investigate the internal decisions of the government of Canada. The Knights have traditionally been extremely protective of their sovereignty, a legal status that makes it possible for them to serve throughout the world independent of any governments. And that is precisely what the Knights have told Pietro Parolin: mind your own business.

In a terse and bluntly worded statement issued December 23rd, the Knights said, “The replacement of the former Grand Chancellor is an act of internal governmental administration of the Sovereign Order of Malta and consequently falls solely within its competence. The aforementioned appointment [of the commission] is the result of a misunderstanding by the Secretariat of State of the Holy See.

“The Grand Master respectfully clarified the situation yesterday evening in a letter to the Supreme Pontiff, laying out the reasons why the suggestions made by the Secretariat of State were unacceptable.”

How does this concern the conflict between the pope and the Dubia of the four cardinals? Readers will remember that after the first Synod on the Family, Pope Francis removed Cardinal Burke from his position as head of the Apostolic Signatura and made him the Cardinal Patron of the Knights of Malta, a position he clearly thought would mean he had heard the last of this troublesome priest.

But it is possible that Francis had also failed to really understand the Knights, or the spiritual fortitude of their Cardinal Patron. From this new office, Cardinal Burke has become the de facto leader of the opposition to the doctrinal wreckovation under way with the publication of Amoris Laetitia. It seems clear that with Burke’s statement that a formal correction is coming after Epiphany on the AL affair, Bergoglio thought he could make a lateral move to discredit or silence him through an attack on the Knights, particularly by threatening to seize their property.

So far, the main media attention on the issue has come from Nicole Winfield at the Associated Press and Christopher Lamb at the notoriously anti-doctrinal UK magazine the Tablet.

In her piece for AP, later substantially reproduced without a byline at John Allen’s Crux, Winfield has used all the usual mainstream secular media tricks to create a certain impression. The Knights are called “the conservative Catholic religious order that dates from the medieval Crusades,” who “forcibly ousted” Boeselager. But the piece is curiously devoid of any mention of their status as a sovereign entity, independent of the Holy See or of Boeselager’s wrongdoing.

The only quotes come from Boeselager and two anonymous sources in the Order. Winfield’s mention of Burke’s role in the Dubia/Amoris Laetitia debate uses heavily biased language. Burke is a “conservative” and a “hard liner,” and Francis is the pope in the white hat attempting to create a more “flexible approach” for divorced and remarried Catholics.

Winfield declined to mention Boeselager’s attempt to cover up his actions and his outright refusal to obey a direct order to resign from his religious superior and sovereign. Instead, she lays the groundwork for an accusation of mendacity against Cardinal Burke and the Grand Master. Quoting only Boeselager’s statement, she writes, “During the meeting, the order’s grand master indicated that the request to resign ‘was in accordance with the wishes of the Holy See.’

“However, no such request was ever made. Von Boeselager said since his ouster, the Holy See has written to the order ‘confirming that such a wish was never raised.’”

But Winfield has not, apparently, thought to ask to see this letter, being apparently willing to take Boeselager’s word for its contents – or even its existence – and report the claim as indisputable fact. So far, none of Winfield’s informants have made public any letter from the Holy See backing their claims.

Indicating that she has read the statement from the Order, Winfield continues, “On Dec. 15, a new grand chancellor was elected, John Edward Critien.” She adds that Boeselager has refused to accept the new appointment, believing himself to still be “the duly elected grand chancellor, albeit one who has been impeded from doing his job because of an ouster that violated the order’s legal norms on several fronts.”

“He said he has always felt bound by the teachings of the church and rejected the ‘liberal’ label that his opponents have given him,” Winfield writes.

“‘To contrive an accusation that I do not acknowledge the church’s teaching on sexuality and the family, based on the sequence of events in the Malteser International Myanmar project, is absurd,’ the statement said.”

The re-post of the article by Crux adds their more unabashed editorial opinion, “The order has been in the news most recently because of its divisive papal envoy, American Cardinal Raymond Burke, an arch-conservative whom Francis removed as head of the Vatican’s supreme court.”

And here we get to the heart of the issue: Boeselager has used media with blatantly anti-doctrinal, “liberal” biases to accuse the Grand Master and Burke of having concocted a tale that Pope Francis supported his removal. All the while, indignantly complaining that he has been unjustly accused of being a “liberal Catholic.” (Moreover, it does not seem that he is bothering to deny having allowed the distribution of condoms in Myanmar, an issue that is almost being lost in the flurry of accusations. Indeed, Winfield notes that “Boeselager admitted he knew about the condoms.”)

Winfield digs in, writing, “By naming an independent commission to look into the case, Francis appears to be seeking an objective assessment of von Boeselager and his ouster without the input of Burke, who has been among Francis’ fiercest critics.”

To underline the thesis that Boeselager’s removal was unlawful, and that the Grand Master and Burke are liars, she adds, “Burke had conveyed to the Order of Malta’s governing council on Dec. 6 that Francis wanted von Boeselager to resign, the two people familiar with the case said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak about internal meetings.”

Perhaps surprisingly, Winfield notes that, in addition to a “trusted Jesuit canon lawyer” the five members of the commission Francis (not, notably, the Secretary of State) has appointed are Knights of Malta members “who have close ties to the German-born von Boeselager.”

As one would expect from the magazine known for its unconcealed anti-doctrinal bias, the Tablet starts off forthrightly accusing Burke of being “the arch-conservative”. However, the information and approach of the piece by the Tablet’s Rome correspondent Christopher Lamb, is essentially the same. 
 
Whether he intended to do so, Christopher Lamb also makes it clear that this is not really a disagreement over the Knights and their decisions – or even about the Church’s teaching on contraceptives – but a brazen attempt to silence or discredit Burke over the Dubia.

“But Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, who has threatened to formally correct the Pope unless his ‘dubia’ receive a response, is now facing some scrutiny of his own after the sacking of a senior Knight of Malta, Albrecht von Boeselager, in a row about the distribution of condoms.

“Now that Pope Francis has set up an inquiry into the matter Cardinal Burke has the following questions to answer: on what grounds did he claim the Holy See’s authority in dismissing Boeselager? Did he consult anyone inside the Vatican before Boeselager was dismissed? Did he consult Pope Francis? And if not, why not?”

In the face of this flurry of disinformation, the Order issued a media release December 12th, saying that Boeselager has indeed been removed, and replaced, and that this was a disciplinary response to his participation in scandal and disobedience.

During a meeting on December 6th, attended by Cardinal Burke and the Grand Commander, Fra’ Ludwig Hoffmann von Rumerstein, Boeselager was confronted with his attempts to cover up his activities and refused to resign. This left the Grand Master “no choice but to order him, under the Promise of Obedience, in presence of the Grand Commander and the Cardinal Patronus, to resign.”

“Boeselager refused again. Thus, the Grand Commander, with the backing of the Grand Master and the Sovereign Council and most members of the Order around the world, initiated a disciplinary procedure after which a member can be suspended from membership in the Order, and thus all Offices within the Order.” 
 
It is clear that Winfield had seen this statement, having cited the last part in which the Grand Master asked all members of the Order to remain in unity. What she didn’t report was that Boeselager had been removed for his attempt to “conceal” his involvement in wrongdoing.

“The reason for his removal as Grand Chancellor was due to severe problems which occurred during Boeselager’s tenure as Grand Hospitaller of the Order of Malta, and his subsequent concealment of these problems from the Grand Magistry, as proved in a report commissioned by the Grand Master last year.

“It has to be noted that, for any member of the Order, to refuse a command of the Grand Master – regardless of the reasons behind it – is disgraceful. However, for a member in Obedience to refuse an order under the Promise betrays a disregard for the Order’s spirituality and laws, his Religious Superior and Sovereign, and for the Holy Father’s representative to the Order who was supporting the Grand Master in his decision.”

It is important to understand that Cardinal Burke attended the meeting as the Pope’s trusted and lawfully appointed representative, and that this is at the centre of Boeselager’s accusations and the motivation for the investigation by the Holy See. The question being investigated, therefore, is not whether Boeselager was lawfully removed but whether Burke lied about the Pope’s support for it. Note that this support for the decision from the Pope is explicitly indicated in the Order’s statement above.

Added to the mix is the statement from Winfield’s two anonymous informers in the Order that Burke had warned the Grand Master that the Pope could seize the Order’s property if they didn’t remove Boeselager: “Burke had conveyed to the Order of Malta’s governing council on Dec. 6 that Francis wanted von Boeselager to resign, the two people familiar with the case said…Burke warned that if von Boeselager wasn’t removed, the Vatican would take over the order’s properties, they said.”

Given the legally sovereign status of the Knights of Malta, this threat is extremely doubtful, and it is difficult to see why it would have been made, either by Boeselager’s supporters within the Order or by the Pope. It has given rise to comments around the internet that the Knights of Malta could be facing the kind of extinction and seizure suffered by the Knights Templar in the Middle Ages, and perhaps this was the impression intended either by Francis (if it is true) or the anonymous informants (if not). br>
What almost certainly can be taken away from all this is that there is a faction at work both in the Knights of Malta and the Vatican feeding what amounts to propaganda to their chosen press mouthpieces in the press. These have chosen to omit or downplay crucial elements – Boeselager’s admission that he knew about the condoms; that he attempted to cover up his wrongdoing; that he refused a lawful order to resign; that the Order of Malta is not legally subject to investigation by the Holy See.

And most importantly for the larger issues in the Church, they have used the incident as a launch pad for attacking Cardinal Burke, strongly implying that he has lied to the Knights of Malta about the pope’s intentions and support for removing Boeselager. The threat about the Order’s property – whether genuine or not – adds to the general impression that the Pope has the power to wipe out this ancient and illustrious military order, and is willing to do so if they refuse his commands.

The speculation in Rome now is that Francis deliberately sent Cardinal Burke into that meeting with a mandate to remove Boeselager – including the threat against the Order’s property – that he intended to back out of, like Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown. This is supported by the stacking of the commission with Boeselager’s partisans in the Order.

If nothing else, a careful examination of this incident, and meticulous scrutiny of the way it is being reported and by whom, lends an opportunity to see exactly how the current occupant of the Throne of Peter operates. We have seen that he typically acts through subterfuge and deflection, never acting or speaking plainly and by using proxies – especially sympathetic media – to create an atmosphere of chaos, disorder and confused suspicion.

As a friend of mine with close ties to the Curia said, “This was clearly a trap set up by Bergoglio for Burke, and is of a piece with his usual mode of operation.” Certainly reports from the archdiocese of Buenos Aires from the earliest days of this pontificate have said that their former archbishop was well known for his vindictive actions against those he perceived as political enemies. These actions are said to have included blackmail as well as the kind of dirty tricks we can see being played out here. From the start, Bergoglio has used this now-predictable methodology, that clearly worked well within the parochial confines of a Latin American dictatorship. 

But the indications are growing that these kinds of methods do not succeed so well in the much larger – and more transparent – world of the Catholic Church. We can hope with some confidence, moreover, that he has severely underestimated his own man, and with their December 23rd statement, that the grownups in the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta are more than equal to the challenge.


[1] The terms “liberal” and “conservative” are rapidly losing their usefulness in the current discussions. It seems that the forces currently at work in the Vatican and elsewhere are opposed to Catholic doctrine, so “anti-doctrinal” seems more appropriate. We’ll try using them, and see if they serve the cause of clarity.

Editor's Comments:  Matthew 16:18  "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."  Jesus said; "the gates of hell shall not prevail against 'IT'" (the Church) not 'HIM' (the Pope). 

The Church survived the Imposter Pope Paul VI  in the 1970's.  http://www.tldm.org/News3/impostor.htm  The Church survived erroneous popes in the past history of the Church and "IT" will survive them in the future.

"There will be an uncanonically elected pope who will cause a great schism, there will be diverse thoughts preached which will cause many, even those in the different orders to doubt, yea, even agree with those heretics which will cause my Order to divide, then will there be such universal dissensions and persecutions that if those days were not shortened even the elect would be lost." - St. Francis of Assisi (The Reign of Antichrist, Fr.

  - Our Lady, June 18, 1977

WAR AMONG YOUR CLERGY
"The Eternal City of Rome shall go through labor pains. The struggle shall lead to blood within the streets. There shall be a war among your clergy. It shall be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal, for 666 has entered upon Rome. I repeat, My children: awaken from your slumber! 666, the forces and agents of satan, have entered upon Rome!”

Our Lady of the Roses Awesome Bayside Prophecies... http://www.tldm.org/Bayside/ These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995.

HIGHEST MITRES
"Do not be misled by the outer clothing of man, for there are many wolves in sheep's clothing, wearing the apparel of rank. Know that many have given themselves to satan.
     "Pray, pray much for those who wear the highest mitres, for they, too, have set themselves onto the road to hell. Your prayers and your acts of sacrifice and those who hear My voice, pray much for the Red Hats that have gone onto the wide road."  - Our Lady, October 2, 1974

HIGHEST PLACES OF THE CHURCH
"We ask that you pray much. Pray for those in the House of God who have lost their way. Many mitres are now going onto the road to perdition. Pray for them, for it is of great sorrow to Our hearts to see a man of God fall from his mission.  
     "Satan has entered into the highest places of the Church.
     "Pray much. I have asked you in the past to help patch the cracks. The bark of Peter flounders.
     "You will stand fast with Our Vicar. Do not allow your hearts, through your ears and human senses, to be misled. The enemies of God send out false interpretations.”  - Our Lady, April 13, 1974

CONTROL OF MANY MAJOR POSITIONS
"Control—you must know, my child, and tell the world that satan has control now of many major positions in the House of God, in the Eternal City of Rome. Traitors surround your Vicar. His sufferings are great.
     "Already they have chosen his successor. But pray, my children, pray much that he does not be removed, for woe to the world! The crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ! Woe to mankind!"
     Veronica -  Now Michael is stepping back, and he's now pointing with his spear. He has a spear in his right hand. He's pointing with his spear now, and he's pointing to a cardinal. And he's now writing above his head: "W".
     Now he's going over—I should be able to see him; he's standing right in front of him, and he's pointing to the next cardinal, and he's writing above his head: "A".
     And he's then going to the next one—he's sitting way over at the end, though, and he's writing above his head: "S".
     Now he's coming forward, and he's pointing his spear with disdain at a "V", a big "V". A big "V" now is appearing on the head of, I guess he's a bishop, or archbishop. He's wearing the same kind of a, like a . . . a . . . he's got a biretta-like, one of those little round hats. It's sort of a purplish color. And now above his head is written the letter "V".
     Now Michael is bending forward.
     St. Michael - "They are the initials, my child. You will pray for them, and ask many of earth's children to pray that they come out of the darkness. Their souls wallow in sin. They are blinded, and they are misleading those under their rule.
     "V. does much damage to the Holy Father [Pope Paul VI] by changing his correspondence. V. rewrites his letters. V. censors his mail. He did not, my child, receive the medals you sent to him. He did not receive your correspondence, my child. The Holy Father shall receive his knowledge from Mary, the Queen of Heaven and his Mother."  - St. Michael, August 21, 1974

“SET TO RIGHTS THE DAMAGE”
“I, Michael, guardian of the House of God, give fair warning to all cardinals and bishops in all houses upon earth, churches, that you must set to rights the damage that you have created, the damage that has destroyed many souls.
     "It will be a command of the Father from Heaven that all in authority defrock and excommunicate those under their rule who seek to destroy the Faith as given by the Father from Heaven.
     "Speak, my child; speak now as I have directed you. There is a major law in the Faith of Jesus Christ that none shall enter into secret societies of the Masons. The sons of satan are rulers, known by the name of Freemasons. All who join this heinous..."
     Veronica - Oh! Oh, my goodness! Oh!
     St. Michael - "All who join this secret society will immediately be condemned to the abyss forever.
     "Those in rule will excommunicate and defrock all who enter and make pact with the separated brethren and who will compromise the Faith with the separated brethren.”  - St. Michael, August 21, 1974 

PLAN OF LUCIFER
"You will stand behind your Vicar. The agents of hell surround him. They will not remove him from the Seat of Peter. A greater punishment falls upon man should he be removed from the Seat of Peter! It is the plan of Lucifer to sit his agent upon the Seat. I have warned you many times that your ways have led you into great destruction.
     "The hand of God will fall heavy upon your world. For a man to let himself fall into perdition in his lay life . . . but when this perdition has entered into the House of God, it calls for a speedy and fast destruction! For all that is rotten will fall. Weak vines will break, boughs will be bent, but the cross of the living God shall not be bent by the will of man and to satisfy the desires of a corrupt generation! No-o-o! For woe to those who promote evil in the House of God! They will be held accountable in full measure for the fall of the souls entrusted to their care." - Our Lady, May 30, 1973

ANTIPOPE OF HISTORY
"My children, in the past My Church, My people have gone through crucibles of suffering, but I say unto you: My House, My Church upon earth is passing through a trial far greater than any in past history. Lucifer and his agents now are working with diligence and are most successful at this moment in their striving to topple the Seat of Peter and to place in Rome a pope that is the antipope of history." - Jesus, June 18, 1978

SATAN'S  AGENT
"The Holy Father will soon undergo a great trial. You will all gather round him and support him on his cross. You will not set up the machinery for the entrance of satan's agent onto the Seat of Peter, for when you do you have reached the beginning of the end!" - St. Peter, August 5, 1972

TRAVELING ROAD OF FALLEN ANGELS
"To all of Our bishops and cardinals: awaken from your sleep! This warning is given so that you will have time to make amends. You are burrowing like rats into the foundation of My House! In your quest to improve, you are destroying My House! In your arrogance, you are traveling the road of the fallen angels! Modernization—you shall not change to please human nature! You will bring man to his God through discipline. The rules have been given to you, set down very clearly in the Book of life, the Bible. You will not change the words to suit your fallen nature! My word to you is this: Return My House to the rule! A House in darkness will shut its doors. The filth must be cleansed!"  - Jesus, December 6, 1974 

USING RANK TO DESTROY SOULS
"Those who have the highest rank in My Son's House, in the houses throughout your world, are using their rank to destroy many souls. Pray, pray much for them, for they, too, shall burn in the fires of hell.”  - Our Lady, August 14, 1974

MAN OF DARK SECRETS
"I see that the high priests of the House of God have become soft in their ways. They cater to their bodies and do not wish to sacrifice and make penance. There will be no easy road to the Kingdom. They will get down on their knees, and they will starve their worldly bodies until they rid themselves of the demons within them.
     "Unless you listen now to my words of caution, you will fall into the trap that is being set for you. The enemy is within the House of God. He will seek to remove your Vicar from among you, and when he does he will place a man of dark secrets upon the Seat of Peter!" - St. Thomas Aquinas, August 21, 1972

CARDINAL AGAINST CARDINAL
“When I am returned to remain guard at the tabernacles, and my name is returned, you will find the people flocking back into the houses of their God. Instead, now I have been locked out and satan has been invited in. His agents fill the seats of the houses of God. The battle will rage with great ferocity in the House of God—bishop against bishop, cardinal against cardinal, until the score has been settled in favor of the Eternal Father, your Creator.”  - St. Michael, August 21, 1974

There are 4 Things You Must Have to Survive the End Times:

1.) The Douay-Rheims Holy Bible...

"I ask that all who hear My voice will take their Bibles, and if they do not have one, search, but find the right Bible, those printed not after 1965, My children." -  Jesus, October 5, 1985
     "You must all obtain a copy of the Book of life and love, the Bible. Do not accept the new mods. Try to find in your bookstores the old Bibles, My children, for many are being changed to suit the carnal nature of man.  I repeat, sin has become a way of life." - Our Lady, October 6, 1992  
    "I must ask you all to read but a few short chapters a day now, the Book of life and love, your Bible. Knowledge must be gained for all the disciples of My Son, for you will be attacked by scientific minds. But do not be concerned what you will say to them when accosted, for the words will be given to you by the Spirit." - Our Lady, April 10, 1976 
    The Douay-Rheims Bible was published in 1899.  It is the official Bible of the Roman Catholic Church.  Almost all other Bibles have been rewritten by Satan.   See: http://www.tldm.org/directives/d33.htmhttp://www.tldm.org/directives/d415.htm and http://www.tldm.org/directives/d182.htm   If you don't have a Douay-Rheims Bible order it now!  (Order Form)  Yours and your loved ones salvation could depend on it. 
    Read the Bible cover to cover.  If you read 4 chapters a day, you will complete the whole Bible in 334 days.  I have read the Bible 2 times and working on the third time.  A 75 year old Baptism gentleman told me that he and his wife have read the Bible nine times.  Wow!

2.) The Complete Virgin Mary’s Bayside Prophesies in 6 Paperback Books...

The Virgin Mary brings directions from God, the Father in Heaven on how to survive the end times.  God, the Father, through the Virgin Mary, tells what is coming, how to prepare for it, how to survive it, and how to even stop it.  These six volumes along with the Bible are most important to save yourself and your loved ones.  Order it now.  Tomorrow may be to late.  These 6 pocket size paperback books costs $33.00. (Order Form)

3.)  Heaven's Home Protection Packet...

Heaven’s Home Protection Packet...
Our Lord stated we must have crucifixes upon the outside of all of our outside doors. In the "Heaven’s Home Protection Packet" there are instructions, four crucifixes, a tube of special cement for wooden or metal crucifixes. Wooden crucifixes adhere better to the doors when the aluminum strap is removed from the back. Put a light coat of cement on the back of the crucifix and then press it to the outside of the door. If you have any problems, you can call us at 616-698-6448 for assistance. This Heaven’s Home Protection Packet is available for a donation of $10.00 plus $4.00 shipping and handling.

Crucifix on front and back door...  The only real protection against terrorists...
Jesus - "Pray and wear your sacramentals. And, also, My children, I ask you again to place a crucifix upon your door. Both front and back doors must have a crucifix. I say this to you because there will be carnage within your areas, and this will pass you by if you keep your crucifix upon your doors." (6-30-84) (Testimonies of lives and homes saved by the crucifixes.)  http://www.tldm.org/news/crucifix.htm    (Order Form)

4.) Heaven's Personal Protection Packet...

Heaven’s Personal Protection Packet . . .

    Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers promises to help protect our children. On September 13, 1977, She said, "He has an army of ogres wandering now throughout your country and all of the countries of the world. They are in possession of great power; so wear your sacramentals, and protect your children and your households. Learn the use every day of holy water throughout your household. Insist even with obstructions, insist that your children always wear a sacramental. One day they will understand that they will repel the demons."
    On February 1, 1974, Our Lady said, "My children, know the value of these sacramentals. Guard your children well. You must awaken to the knowledge that you will not be protected without the sacramentals. Guard your children's souls. They must be surrounded with an aura of purity. Remove them if necessary from the sources of contamination, be it your schools or even false pastors."
    This Heaven’s Personal Protection Packet is available for a donation of $7.00 plus $3.00 shipping and handling. Send $10.00 to TLD Ministries, P.O. Box 40, Lowell, MI 49331. You may use your MasterCard, VISA, or American Express and call 1-616-698-6448.  Item # P5

A great obligation to go forward... "It is not by accident that you are called by My Mother, for it is by merit and the prayers that have risen to Heaven for your salvation.  For those who have received the grace to hear the Message from Heaven, you have a great obligation to go forward and bring this Message to your brothers and sisters.  Do not expect a rest upon your earth, for you will have eternal rest very soon." - Jesus, June 12, 1976

The sin of omission...  "The sin of omission shall condemn many to hell, be they layman or Hierarchy.  I repeat:  not the sin of commission, but the sin of omission will commit many to hell."  Our Lady of the Roses,  October 6, 1980

My gift to help spread Our Lady of the Roses' messages to the world.
