Medjugorje… What You May Not Know

The six seers of Medjugorje when they were children

 

The sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church continues to tear away at her credibility. But did it also undermine the apparitions taking place in Medjugorje, the one place on earth where conversions, healing, and vocations spring forth on a daily basis?

 
AFTER having followed the Medjugorje apparitions for years, and researched and studied the background story, one thing has become clear: there are a lot of people who reject the supernatural character of this apparition site based on the dubious words of a few. A perfect storm of politics, lies, sloppy journalism, manipulation, and a Catholic media mostly cynical of all-things-mystical has fuelled, for years, a narrative that the six visionaries, and a gang of Franciscan thugs, have managed to dupe the world, including the canonized Saint, John Paul II.Continue reading

Going to Extremes

 

AS division and toxicity increase in our times, it is driving people into corners. Populist movements are emerging. Far-left and far-right groups are taking their positions. Politicians are moving toward either full-on capitalism or a new Communism. Those in the broader culture who embrace moral absolutes are labeled intolerant while those who embrace anything are considered heroes. Even in the Church, extremes are taking shape. Disgruntled Catholics are either jumping from the Barque of Peter into ultra-traditionalism or simply abandoning the Faith altogether. And among those who are staying behind, there is a war over the papacy. There are those who suggest that, unless you publicly criticize the Pope, you are a sellout (and God forbid if you dare quote him!) and then those who suggest any criticism of the Pope is grounds for excommunication (both positions are wrong, by the way).Continue reading

Surviving Our Toxic Culture

 

SINCE the election of two men to the most influential offices on the planet—Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States and Pope Francis to the Chair of St. Peter—there has been a marked shift in public discourse within the culture and the Church itself. Whether they intended it or not, these men have become agitators of the status quo. All at once, the political and religious landscape has suddenly changed. What was hidden in the darkness is coming to light. What could have been predicted yesterday is no longer the case today. The old order is collapsing. It is the beginning of a Great Shaking that is sparking a worldwide fulfillment of Christ’s words:Continue reading

The Fall of Mystery Babylon

 

Since writing this follow-up to Mystery Babylon, I am stunned to see how America continues to fulfill this prophecy, even a few years later… First published August 11th, 2014. 

 

WHEN I began to write Mystery Babylon in 2012, I was taken aback at the remarkable, mostly unknown history of America, where the forces of darkness and light had a hand in her birth and formation. The conclusion was stunning, that despite the forces of good in that beautiful nation, the mysterious foundations of the country and its present state seem to fulfill, in dramatic fashion, the role of “Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth.” [1]cf. Rev 17:5; for an explanation as to why, read Mystery Babylon Again, this present writing is not a judgment upon individual Americans, many whom I love and have developed deep friendships with. Rather, it is to shed light on the seemingly deliberate collapse of America that continues to fulfill the role of Mystery Babylon…Continue reading

Mystery Babylon


He Will Reign, by Tianna (Mallett) Williams

 

It is clear that there is a battle raging for the soul of America. Two visions. Two futures. Two powers. Is it already written in the Scriptures? Few Americans may realize that the battle for their country’s heart began centuries ago. First published June 20th, 2012, this is more relevant at this hour than ever…

 

AS the jet soared above California on my return home from my mission there in April of 2012, I felt compelled to read Chapters 17-18 of the Book of Revelation.

It seemed, again, as though a veil was lifting on this arcane book, like another page of thin tissue turning to reveal a bit more of the mysterious image of the “end times” emerging in our day. The word “apocalypse” means, in fact, the unveiling—a reference to the unveiling of a bride at her wedding. [1]cf. Is the Veil Lifting?

What I read began to place America in a completely new biblical light. To be sure I wasn’t reading into something that isn’t there, I have done some research that has left me somewhat astounded…

The Power of Judgments

 

HUMAN relations—whether marital, familial, or international—have seemingly never been so strained. The rhetoric, anger, and division are moving communities and nations ever closer to violence. Why? One reason, for certain, is the power that lies in judgments. Continue reading

The Growing Mob


Ocean Avenue by phyzer

 

First published March 20th, 2015. The liturgical texts for the referenced readings that day are here.

 

THERE is a new sign of the times emerging. Like a wave reaching the shore that grows and grows until it becomes a huge tsunami, so too, there is a growing mob mentality toward the Church and freedom of speech. It was ten years ago that I wrote a warning of the coming persecution. [1]cf. Persecution! … and the Moral Tsunami And now it’s here, on Western shores.

Jesus is the Main Event

Expiatory Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Mount Tibidabo, Barcelona, Spain

 

I will be speaking and singing in Pittsburg, CA tonight. Details below…

 

THERE are so many serious changes unfolding in the world right now that it is almost impossible to keep up with them. Because of these “signs of the times,” I have dedicated a portion of this website to occasionally speaking about those future events that Heaven has communicated to us primarily through Our Lord and Our Lady. Why? Because Our Lord Himself spoke of future things to come so that the Church would not be caught off guard.
