I. INTRODUCTION

Before I start, I want to speak of the mishaps upon posting that Word Press allows in these blogs, like a change of font and size of the letters.In case you have wondered, the original document t was not written as such!

This blog will be a long one… Sorry! Yet, all the parts to be discussed are of great importance for all of us to work for the evangelization of our country and also worldwide! We have lived almost a month of unusual events with the election of our new U.S. President and the people who have been named by Mr. Trump as heads of different departments, and now going through the process of being confirmed or rejected by the Congress. Also we have lived a full show of many women claiming their right to kill babies in the womb as a right and marching in the West and East coasts. On the other hand, other citizens have marched claiming that babies in the womb are not tumors but human beings made in the image of God. At the center of these events we can see obvious division, accusations, fears, lies, etc. and we can recognize their source, Satan himself. So, for this first month of 2017, I will share with you four major topics and once again, I will not follow a calendar sequence of sharing what I learned from the Lord.

I will relate the history of how Mexico lived the loss of their religious liberty rights. The reason why I am showing some of the main facts of the attempt to end Catholicism in Mexico and deny all religious liberty, is precisely for us to review it as an example of what could happen here in the U.S. I am quite sure that the Mexican Church in the early 1920’s, especially the Pastors, never imagined what they were going to encounter in spiritual terms… They had Our Lady of Guadalupe waiting to be asked to intercede to her Son to stop this horror… Yet, there was not a real PLAN to do so in order to protect Priests and laity who were killed calling it a duty of the State to protect the people! In our case, let us be aware that we have to be prepared for similar attempts and how in recent times we saw such attempt to ignore our religious liberty rights

I will delve in our need to stop this aggression on the life of babies whose rights to life are ignored and DENIED and how the work of Margaret Sanger initiated this form of persecution… Please notice that I wrote: “the need to STOP this aggression.” O yes, we as baptized Catholics and initiated in the other Sacraments of Confirmation, Reconciliation and Communion with the real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, we CAN STOP this aggression if we want… Margaret Sanger was born in 1879 but came to national attention in 1920; as she started the use of contraceptives up to the point of being successful (with her ideology) in passing a law in 1972 (despite that she died in 1966), denying the right to life to all babies not yet born and ending the life of elders and terminally ill with or without their permission. Notice how no one even thought in 1920 what this woman could lead us into by 1972! And that I know of, our Church never organized a solid plan to combat this monstrosity.

The last section will give you the story of what the Lord wants of me to change these injustices.

II. The story of how Mexico lived the loss of their religious liberty right

The end of Catholicism in Mexico 1914-1937

This is partially a translation from a video in Spanish watched in EWTN/Espanol with Father Fidel Gonzalez Hernandez. I have added a more detailed history of this loss of religious liberty in Mexico and I have mixed Fr. Fidel’s words with information from the Internet.. If felt called by the Holy Spirit to do so and as you read it, it will give you a closer look at what Satan did in Mexico and could do in the U.S. if we let him!

Two things are behind this attack on religious liberty and the Roman Catholic Church in Mexico:

1. In 1917, a new Constitution was written in Queretaro following the ideas of the French Revolution. It established a policy that denied juridical personality to churches, prohibited clergy participation in politics, deprived churches of the right to own real estate and prevented public worship outside of temples. Some estimates put the number of people dead around 250,000 between civilians, members of the “Cristero” movement and the Mexican police.

After a period relatively quiet during the governments of Carranza and Obregon, the anticlerical pressure intensified with the election of Plutarco Elías Calles to the presidency. In 1925, the Catholic Apostolic Church of Mexico (!!!) with the support of the Mexican Workers Confederation was created providing it with buildings, resources and means to break with the Vatican.

2)  The Cristero War, also called War of the Cristeros or Cristiada , was an armed conflict of Mexico that extended from 1926 to 1929  between the government and militias of laity, presbyters and religious who resisted the application of legislation and public policies oriented to restrict the participation of the Catholic Church over the assets of the nation as well as in civil proceedings. Said in other words, people had religious liberty but only as the Government would allow it and using the ideas of the Philadelphia Masonic Logia of 1910…

It should be mentioned that the Calles Act is a modification to the Penal Code in 1926 by President Plutarco Elias Calles and is known as the Calles Law, to limit religious demonstrations in order to have more precise instruments to exercise the controls established by the 1917 Constitution in article 130,  as part of the model of subjection of Churches to the State.  This provided specific penalties for priests and individuals who violated the provisions of the 1917 Constitution. For instance, wearing clerical garb in public (i.e., outside Church buildings) earned a fine of 500 pesos ($250 U.S. per the historical exchange rate). A priest who criticized the government could be imprisoned for five years. Some states enacted oppressive measures.

 Chihuahua enacted a law permitting only a single priest to serve the entire Catholic congregation of the state. In general there was one priest per 100,000 people.To help enforce the law, Calles seized church property, expelled all foreign priests and closed the monasteries, convents and religious schools. Some states came to establish laws that required ministers of religion to be married persons and prohibited the existence of religious communities, in addition to limiting religious worship solely to churches, as well as prohibiting the use of habits outside religious enclosures. 

Skirmishing broke out in 1926, and violent uprisings began in 1927. The rebels called themselves Cristeros, invoking the name of Jesus Christ under the title of "Cristo Rey" or Christ the King. The rebellion eventually ended by diplomatic means brokered by the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Dwight Whitney Morrow, with financial relief and logistical assistance provided by the Knights of Columbus.

The rebellion attracted the attention of Pope Pius XI, who issued a series of papal encyclicals between1925-1937. On December 11, 1925, the Pope established the Feast of Christ the King. Persecution of Catholics and anti-government terrorist attacks continued into the 1940s, when the remaining organized Cristero groups were incorporated into the Sinarquista Party.

Peaceful resistance: in response to these measures, Catholic organizations began to intensify their resistance. On July 11, 1926, Catholic Bishops voted to suspend all public worship in response to the Calles Law, with the suspension taking effect on August 1. On July 14 they endorsed plans for an economic boycott against the government, which was particularly effective in west-central Mexico. Catholics in these areas stopped attending movies and plays and using public transportation and Catholic teachers stopped teaching in secular schools.

The Bishops worked to have the offending articles of the Constitution amended. Pope Pius XI  explicitly approved this plan. The Calles government considered the bishops’ activism sedition and had many more churches closed. In September 1926 the Episcopate submitted a proposal for the amendment of the Constitution, but the Congress rejected it on September 22. Calles presidency came to an end by Dec. 1, 1928.

Ku Klux Klan involvement

High-ranking members of this racist and anti-Catholic US organization in the mid-1920s offered President Calles $10,000 to help fight the Catholic Church. The offer came when the Knights of Columbus in the US secretly offered a group of Cristero rebels, $1,000 of financial assistance for guns and ammunition. This was made after the fact that Calles also sent a private telegram to the Mexican Ambassador to France, Alberto José Pani Arteaga, advising that the ". . . Catholic Church in Mexico is a political movement, and must be eliminated in order to proceed with a Socialist government free of religious hypnotism which fools the people . . . Within one year without the sacraments, the people will forget the faith . . ."

End of the rebellion: U. S. Ambassador Morrow managed to bring the parties to agreement on June 21, 1929. His office drafted a pact called the arreglos (agreement) that allowed worship to resume in Mexico and granted three concessions to the Catholics: only priests who were named by hierarchical superiors would be required to register; religious instruction in the churches (but not in the schools) would be permitted, and all citizens, including the clergy, would be allowed to make petitions to reform the laws. But the most important part of the agreement was that the Church would recover the right to use its properties, and priests recovered their rights to live on such property. Legally speaking, the Church was not allowed to own real estate, and its former facilities remained federal property. However, the Church effectively took control over them. It was a convenient arrangement for both parties, and the Church ostensibly ended its support for the rebels (Cristeros).

As promised by President Portes Gil, the Calles Law remained on the books, but no organized federal attempts to enforce it took place. Nonetheless, in several localities, officials continued the persecution of Catholic priests based on their interpretation of the law.

Cárdenas Era (1934–40) and the Catholic Church

The Calles law was repealed after Lazaro Cardenas became president in 1934. Cárdenas earned respect from Pope Pius XI and befriended Mexican Archbishop Luis María Martinez, a major figure in Mexico’s Catholic Church who successfully persuaded Mexicans to obey the government’s laws in a peaceful manner. The Church refused to back Mexican insurgent Saturnino Cedillo’s failed revolt against Cárdenas, despite the fact that Cedillo endorsed more power for the Church as well.

Socialist Education: Cárdenas’ government continued to suppress religion in the field of education during his administration (1934-1940). Congress amended Article 3 of the Constitution in October 1934 to include the following introductory text (textual translation): "The education imparted by the State shall be a socialist one and, in addition to excluding all religious doctrine, shall combat fanaticism and prejudices by organizing its instruction and activities in a way that shall permit the creation in youth of an exact and rational concept of the Universe and of social life."

This amendment was invalidated by future President Manuel Avila Camacho and was officially repealed from the Mexican Constitution in 1946. Constitutional bans against the Church would not be enforced anywhere in Mexico during Avila Camacho’s presidency.

The promotion of socialist education met with strong opposition in some parts of academia and in areas formerly controlled by the Cristeros.

Pope Pius XI also published the encyclical Firmissimam Constantiam on March 28, 1937, expressing his opposition to the "impious and corruptive school" (paragraph 22) and his support for Catholic Action in Mexico. This was the third and last encyclical published by Pius XI making reference to the religious situation in Mexico.

In 1992 the Mexican Government amended the constitution by granting legal status to all religious groups, conceding them limited property rights and lifting restrictions on the number of priests in the country.

Cristero War Saints

From this Cristero Movement, we have 22 canonized Saints plus Blessed for a total of 49. There are about 300 cases being considered in the process of canonization and who were killed.  All religious properties like churches were converted into museums, public schools, etc. 

The Catholic Church has recognized several of those killed in the Cristero rebellion as martyrs, including Blessed Miguel Agustin Pro, S.J. who was shot dead without trial by a firing squad on November 23, 1927, on trumped-up charges of involvement in an assassination attempt. In November 1927, a bomb was tossed at Calles’s car from an auto previously owned by one of Miguel’s two brothers. All three brothers were rounded up and condemned to death. The youngest was pardoned, but Padre Pro and his brother Humberto were executed by a firing squad. Calles had news photographers present, expecting the Pros to die cowardly. But Padre Pro refused the blindfold and welcomed the bullets with his arms extended in the form of a cross, crying out, “Viva Cristo Rey!” Although Calles outlawed any public demonstration, thousands of Mexicans defiantly lined the streets, honoring the martyr as he was carried in procession to his grave. His beatification occurred in 1988.

On May 21, 2000, Pope St. John Paul II canonized a group of 25 martyrs from this period. They had been beatified on November 22, 1992. Of this group, 22 were secular clergy and three were laymen. They did not take up arms but refused to leave their flocks and ministries, being shot or hanged by government forces for offering the Sacraments. Most were executed by federal forces

Battle Hymn of the Cristeros

Juan Gutiérrez, a surviving Cristero, penned the Cristeros hymn, "Battle Hymn of the Cristeros", which is based on the music of the Spanish-language song, "Marcha Real".

Spanish

La Virgen María es nuestra protectora y nuestra defensora cuando hay que temer. Vencerá a todo el demonio gritando "¡Viva Cristo Rey!" (x2)

Soldados de Cristo: ¡Sigamos la bandera, que la cruz enseña el ejército de Dios! Sigamos la bandera gritando, "¡Viva Cristo Rey!"

 

English translation

The Virgin Mary is our protector and defender when there is to fear.

She will vanquish all demons at the cry of "Long live Christ the King!" (x2)

Soldiers of Christ: Let’s follow the flag, for the cross points to the army of God! Let’s follow the flag at the cry of "Long live Christ the King!" (END)

 

III. MARY AND THE GIFT OF MERCY

Once again, the Lord surprises me when I am writing a blog. I had started it and on Saturday, January 28, out of the blue I turned EWTN on and there it was: I saw a program that spoke about the Virgin Mary as a seat of mercy for us… I already had a plan that the Lord had given me as to how to fight our present problems to end the lack of peace and restore the reign of Christ the King in our land, and this particular view of her in the Bible, gave me a profound desire to comply with the plan… I am sure that this past Saturday many watched this program but for those who did not, I am sure that you will enjoy reviewing its content…

The program was presented this past Fall 2016 by Mr. Jeff Cavins at the “Ignited by Truth Catholic Conference.”  I will paraphrase most of the story.  He said, “The New Testament is the fulfillment of what was written in the Old Testament. Jesus said so in Mathew 5:17 – ‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill it.’ ” (From here on, I mixed his message with other studies done on the same subject).

Some examples of this fulfillment:

1. When Jesus chose 12 disciples, it referred to the 12 Tribes of Israel.

2. Moses went to Mount Sinai and received the Ten Commandments, the Law. Similarly, Jesus went to the mountain and we received the New Law, Jesus and the Beatitudes. Here there is a geographical correlation.

3. The prophet Elijah, in 2 Kings, was at the Jordan River and went up in flaming chariots. In Mathew 3:6 of the New Testament, John the Baptist was at the Jordan River (where Jesus was baptized) and took a prophetic role like Elijah and announced the coming of the Messiah.

4. In the Old Testament the queen mother was Bathsheba. Her role was as an intercessor and advocate for the Kingdom. She interceded for the people and was like a mother. In the Old Testament and in the Eastern region, the King and his Mother are mentioned together. In the New Testament, Mary is the queen mother. In the West, the queen mother is the wife of the king.

Mr Cavins narrated a funny story. Talking to a Protestant brother, he asked, “Is Jesus God? “Yes,” he answered. Is Jesus the Son of God? “Yes.” Is Mary the mother of Jesus? “Yes.” So, is Mary the Mother of God? “No.”!!!

The truth is that Mary is also our Mother given to us in a super natural way at the foot of the Cross. She also stands at the foot of the Cross with Jesus and as she stands at the foot of our crosses!

5. She is the new Ark of the Covenant.

There are some striking parallels between David bringing the Ark into Jerusalem in 2 Samuel 6: 1-19 and St. Luke’s account of Mary’s visit to Elizabeth in Luke 1: 39-56.

In 2 Samuel 6: 2, “David arose and went” to Judah

In Luke 1:39, “Mary arose and went” to the hill country of Judea

In 2 Samuel 6:9, David cries out: “How can the ark of the Lord come to me?

In Luke 1:43, Elizabeth asks, “Why is it granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

In 2 Samuel 6: 14-15, David is found leaping and dancing before the Ark of the Covenant.

In Luke 1: 41-44, “the baby in Elizabeth’s womb is leaping for joy in Mary’s presence.

In 2 Samuel 6:11, the Ark of the Covenant remained at the house of Obededom for three months.

In Luke 1:56, Mary (the new Ark of the Covenant) remained at the home of Elizabeth and Zechariah for three months.

Another interesting comparison between the Old Testament Ark of the Covenant and the New Ark (Mary) is that the Old Testament ark contained a bowl of manna , the two tablets of stone (10 Commandments) and Aaron’s budding rod (speaking of his authority). In Mary, the new Ark of the Covenant, we find Jesus, the living bread from heaven, the Word made flesh and the King of Kings and Lord of Lord’s.

When Israel came out of Egypt they had nothing. They stayed at the base of Mt. Sinai for one year. It is during this year that they received a new Priesthood, the Levites. They received the Law and the Tabernacle. Then they break up from Sinai and go north, and every place they go, the Arch of the Covenant was essential to be with them. It is the holiest pick 

Here are other points in Scripture that show the fulfillment in the New Testament of what was written in the Old Testament.

Exodus 26:34, "You shall put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the holy of holies."

Leviticus 16:2, "The LORD said to Moses: “Tell your brother Aaron that he shall not enter at any time into the holy place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, or he will die; for I will appear in the cloud over the mercy seat."

The tabernacle was the structure ordered built by God so that He might dwell among His people (Exodus 25:8). It was to be mobile and constructed to exacting specifications.  They shall make an ark of acacia wood… Then you shall make a mercy seat of pure gold… And you shall put the mercy seat on the top of the Ark, and in It you shall put the testimony that I shall give you. There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak with you of all that I will give you in commandment for the people of Israel.” (Exodus 25:10-25)

It is referred to in Exodus 25-27, 30-31, 35-40; Num. 3:25 ff.; 4:4 ff.; 7:1ff. In all of Scripture, more space is devoted to the tabernacle than any other topic. The tabernacle stood within the court (Exodus 26: 1 ff.). It was divided into two main divisions: the holy place and the holy of holies which were separated by a veil (Exodus 26:31 ff.), the same veil that was torn from top to bottom at the crucifixion of Jesus (Matt. 27:51). Where the veil had represented the barrier separating sinful man from a holy God (Heb. 9:8), its destruction represented the free access sinners have to God through the blood of Christ (Heb. 10:19 ff.). In the Holy of Holies was the Ark of the Covenant which contained the Ten Commandments (Exodus 25:16). The holy of holies was entered only once a year by the high priest who offered sacrifice for the nation of Israel. 2 Chronicles 3:10, "Then he made two sculptured cherubim in the room of the holy of holies and overlaid them with gold."

The Holy of Holies was the place where blood was sprinkled on the Mercy Seat (the lid on top of the Ark) as an atonement for the sins of Israel (Leviticus 16:15-33). The only person allowed to enter the Holy of Holies was the high priest once a year.

The mercy seat was one of the most distinguishing features of the Ark; it was the place from where God would speak to His people. Mary, the new Ark, appeared in Fatima in 1917. She held back an angel with a flaming sword from executing justice upon the world. God announced this from the Mercy Seat (Our Lady). For shortly after, in the 1930’s, Jesus appeared to St. Faustina, naming her His "secretary of Divine Mercy" (a grace He said would continue once she was in Heaven.) Her role was to announce to the world that it was now living in the "time of mercy," before the "Day of justice" would come upon the earth.

When I asked the Lord Jesus how He could tolerate so many sins and crimes and not punish them, the Lord answered me, I have eternity for punishing [these], and so I am prolonging the time of mercy for the sake of [sinners]. But woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation.’ “ Divine Mercy in My Soul, Diary of St. Faustina, n. 1160

The appearance, then, of the Ark with its Mercy Seat in our times, particularly as we see daily the signs of a growing persecution and nature itself in mysterious convulsions, gives us pause to reflect upon the prophetic words of St. John in the Apocalypse. It is a call to deepen our response to Jesus who asked us to "watch and pray." It is a sign from Heaven calling us to sincere repentance, to abandon the foolish pursuit of illusory desires, to pursue with renewed zeal the will of God, and to remember that we are merely strangers and sojourners in this world. It is significant, then, that in light of Revelation 11:19, "the Ark", the Blessed Mother, appeared to St. Faustina speaking these words:

“Oh, how pleasing to God is the soul that follows faithfully the inspirations of His grace! I gave the Savior to the world; as for you, you have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful Savior, but as a just Judge… Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still time for [granting] mercy.—n. 635

Mary’s Immaculate Heart is Full of Divine Mercy

Saint John Eudes tells us: “To the heart of Mary God communicated in great abundance His merciful inclinations, and established in it the throne and reign of His mercy more gloriously than the heart of any other creature, save the sacred humanity of Christ.”

Divine Mercy reigns so perfectly in Mary’s heart that she bears the name of Queen and Mother of Mercy. And the most loving Mary has so completely won the heart of God’s mercy that He has given her the key to all His treasures, and made her absolute mistress of them. St. Bernard says, "She is called the Queen of Mercy because she opens the abyss and treasure of divine mercy to whom she chooses, when she chooses, and as she chooses.” "Her heart is the ladder by which sinners go up to heaven; this is my reliance; this is the only reason of my hope." (The Admirable of Heart of Mary, pp. 126-127)


Divine Mercy holds such complete sway over Mary’s heart and fills it with such compassion for sinners and for all persons in need that Saint Augustine addresses her thus, "Thou art the sinner’s only hope" after God.

 

What does this mean for us today? It means that Mary’s heart is now a living fountain of divine love and sanctifying grace. She looks upon the hearts of her children as parched and arid ground, but with plenty of potential, needing only to be watered by divine grace, and planted with the seeds of the gospel in order to spring into abundant life. In fact, there is no place in the whole created universe where we can draw closer to the Heart of Jesus than the heart of Mary. Her heart is the chapel where Jesus forever dwells, ready to pour out His merciful love upon us whenever we come to Him.

 

From Mr. Cavins talk: In 930 BC, after King Solomon’s indiscretions, it led to a split of the Kingdom of Israel and ten Tribes went to the north (Israel) and two Tribes went south and took the name of Judah. Jesus came from the latter one. The prophets came to call these two kingdoms to change their ways but little was done and in 722 BC, the Assyrians came and destroyed the northern tribes. Judah was not doing much better. In 587 BC the south was destroyed by Babylon. Judah’s people took some furniture from the Temple built by Solomon and also took the Ark of the Covenant. The latter was hidden by Jeremiah it in a cave and sealed the entrance. They left and were in captivity for 70 years. The Arch was never retrieved.

2 Maccabees 2: 4-9 – “The same document also tells how the prophet (Jeremiah), following a divine revelation, ordered that the tent and the Ark should accompany him and how he went how he went off to the mountain, which Moses climbed to see God’s inheritance. When Jeremiah arrived there, he found a room in a cave in which he put the tent, the Ark and the altar of incense; then he blocked up the entrance. Some of those who followed him came up intending to mark the path, but they could not find it. When Jeremiah heard of this he reproved them: “The place is to remain unknown until God gathers His people together again and SHOWS THEM MERCY. Then the Lord will disclose these things and the glory of the Lord will be seen in the cloud, just as it appeared in the time of Moses and when Solomon prayed that the Place might be gloriously sanctified.”

In Rev 11:19a, John wrote, “Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the Ark of His Covenant could be seen in the temple.”

Rev. 12: 1 ff. – “A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth.

“Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge red dragon…. Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth. She gave birth to a son, a male child, destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and His throne. The woman herself fled into the desert where she had a place prepared by God, that there she might be taken care of…

“Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any peace for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth… Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: … ‘They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. .. But woe to you earth and sea, for the Devil has come down to you in great fury, for he knows he has but a short time.’

“When the dragon saw that it had been thrown down to the earth, it pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child…… Then the dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God’s commandments and bear witness to Jesus.”

Mr. Cavins reminded us that these Revelation passages describe our Lady of Guadalupe’ s painting made by God and imprinted in St. Juan Diego’s tilma in 1531. And since she is the Mother of Mercy (which is Jesus Himself), she will do the same for us, as she did for the Mexican Indians… through God’s mercy. Satan will be around but we have God with us and her intercession for us before the Throne of Mercy… As in 1531 plus some 5 years, 9 million human beings had been converted to our Faith, the Roman Catholic Church! No doubt that we will see a major conversion worldwide…

IV. Margaret Sanger

Margaret was born into a large family. When she was a child, her mother died of tuberculosis but she believed that her mother died because she had had many children. She studied to be a nurse but never graduated and went to work in the slums of N.Y. city where poverty was prevalent and women had many children.

By 1920, she started to proclaim 1) that the many children born to each family was the source of their poverty. 2) That some women should not be allowed to have kids at all. 3) That preventing pregnancies was the solution for all women and for society as a whole. 4) That birth control could solve all problems for women. 5) That each family should be limited to have 2-3 children and otherwise, women would act irresponsibly. 6) It was best to abort an unfit baby.  7) Birth control and sterilization made society stronger and created a better breed of humanity. 8) Only certain women from certain backgrounds should be able to have children because the disable, the mentally handicapped and the physically defective can only help the decline of society. 9) Birth control permits the cleansing of the mentally handicapped, the physically unattractive, racially inferior and others unfit, and make society a better place. 10) “If you do not meet these points, you are not fit to live and less to reproduce.” 11)  She believed that eliminating the poor and sick women was important so not to pollute the gene pool! 12) No woman or man have the right to bear kids without a permit. 13) She believed that eugenics will help society at large and not only the work of the Nazis during the holocaust

She wrote, “The most merciful thing to do in a family with many children is to kill all infants that come at the end. Pregnancy is a disease, an abnormality that produces divorce. The unchecked birth of morons and mentally challenged would over run the American society.”

In 1922, she left her first husband and married an older man, and both agreed to have an open marriage. She, by then, believed that chastity was an outdated idea.

She founded the Birth Control League, today known as Planned Parenthood!  She died on September 6, 1966, but her ideas on eugenics have continued.

My note: I believe that this poor woman was clearly mentally challenged herself but many people believed that her ideas were commendable. This is a great example of what Satan can do… Remember, he divides, confuses, accuses, lies and gives fear!!!

V. My call to share with you how to establish peace and love among us, U.S. citizens ending in that way, the killing of human beings as a right!

The Lord was passing all this prior information and analysis to me and He asked me to do something He wants, in order to stop the potential for further division of our country and for us Catholics, who are just using words and yearly marches, all good things but not truly bringing the Lord of Lords, to end the killing of innocent human beings…So, He asked me to do something and I said yes, and He asked me to share it with you and invite you to participate if you so desire.

FOR ALL BELIEVERS STARTING WITH ME:

A. The time has arrived to TREAT our spiritual dementia of NOT REMEMBERING that “WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.” He did not say that only some things were possible, but that ALL things are possible (especially for those who believe in His love). It came from the mouth of the Archangel Gabriel when our Mother was curious as to how she would become the Mother of the Messiah.

For our part, the time has come for ALL OF US to believe such truth as told to our Lady. However, TO BELIEVE it, we have to LIVE it. So, if for God all things are possible, we must conclude that we have to obey God’s guidance for Him to take over and give us such SPIRITUAL VICTORY. The following is what He explained to me.

What is spiritual victory?

1. The ultimate victory is the salvation of all human beings for the Glory of God.

2. The price for such salvation is TO LOVE, which entices whatever sacrifices that are asked of us with a huge acceptance on our part; that is with a huge “yes” to any suffering involved and a total certainty that we then become part of Jesus’ sacrifice at Calvary.

3. Besides loving with suffering at times, we must wrap our love with faith, the faith of Abraham, always ready to obey God’s will; and with hope, or the certainty that with God, we will enjoy His Presence for all eternity.

B. This is the time to THINKwhile we work on totally reversing our spiritual dementia. We must start training ourselves to encounter difficult situations, decisions, thoughts, and apprehensions, fears, etc. and asking ourselves the following:

1. Is it True?

2. Is it Helpful?

3. Is it Inspiring?

4. Is it Necessary?

5. Is it Kind?

With this introduction to fully enter the belief and practice that for God all things are possible, WE MUST UNDERSTAND day and night that we are disciples of Jesus, the Christ Who died for us to become children of the Father under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. With this act of faith, God will start transforming us into true disciples, and as such we must go and take over announcing the Good News, seeking the redemption of all people involved, that is, those who oppose the right to live and those who are pro life.

C. The Rosary that we were called to pray for the election of Mr. Trump continues to offer the key to solve this problem, as we ask Our Mother to intercede and have Jesus make wine from the waters of resentment and division. The prayer of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy completes our intercession asking our Lord for His mercy (His love put into practice) to secure the spiritual victory needed to secure the salvation of all Americans.

At this point, as the Lord was revealing to me the basis of His plan, He called the Rosary to be prayed daily (as mentioned in my previous blog), but now it has a name: the Pro-Life Rosary. He proceeded to mention the intentions to be brought to His Throne of Mercy with each Rosary.

1. For us believers to be converted into lovers of all our brothers and sisters, carrying our personal crosses for the sake of those who oppose the right to life, avoiding any resentment of any kind.                                            

Sirach: 30:21,23 – “Do not give into sadness, torment not yourself with brooding; distract yourself, renew your courage; DRIVE RESENTMENT FAR AWAY FROM YOU; for worry has brought death to many, nor is there anything ought to be gained from resentment.”

2. For President Donald Trump, Vice President Pence and the Cabinet: to obtain wisdom and to practice the “THINK” ideas as explained before and for their “growth in their spiritual life” and sanctification. For their protection from any human attempt on their lives and for the influence of Satan to be stopped by our Mother. Regarding the President, I have been led to offer this Rosary and my sufferings for his health, stamina, purity of heart, conversion of his soul and wherever is necessary for his job to be just, kind, merciful and successful. The same I ask for Congress and the Supreme Court members.

3. For the confirmation of the new Supreme Court Judge without the childish behavior of members of Congress who are using political thinking and not a juridical examination of this Judge.

With the Chaplet of Mercy I am asking for atonement of all the sins of the people mentioned above and for God to have mercy on all of them.

4. For the “spiritual life” of all members of the “Women’s Movement” and for all citizens who are pro choice. With the Chaplet of Mercy I will atone for their sins and ask the Lord to cover them with His mercy.

5. For the spiritual life of all enemies of the present Government and with the Chaplet I will atone for their sins and ask for God’s mercy to cover them.

6. For the physical and spiritual right to life of all unborn and elder human beings to be respected 100% of the time.

7. For all branches of the Media, Internet and the like, to receive a Pentecost with the wisdom necessary to stop unnecessary talk, harsh opinions and stopping all lies and suppositions regarding public figures. For the mercy of God to reign in their hearts and minds and for atonement of their sins.

8. FOR PEACE TO REIGN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , under the protection and love of God, the Holy Trinity and of His Mother, our brothers and sisters Saints and all the Angels. This peace to flourish among our border countries and with other nations, moving them to accept us as people who respect human life.

9. For all of us who will be praying this daily Rosary and Chaplet. It is not easy to sit down and daily pray as explained, especially among those who are busy. However, we cannot ignore “what the cost could be” if we simply do not sacrifice and find the time. Also, the ingredient of us loving them is essential for God to answer us right away… We are somewhat responsible for the salvation of the women’s movement. It is an opportunity of evangelization like never seen… Yet, we need to LOVE THEM in order to truly treat their blindness (towards the truth) and reverse their spiritual dementia… of negating how beautiful each of them are as images of God Himself; also their denial of how much God loves them and us… So, if love is the ingredient necessary for the present times, the first point of the agenda to conquer hatred, division, blindness, deafness, confusion and fear is TO LOVE THEM AS THEY ARE…

To this effect, with this Rosary we are asking for our brutal conversion from resentment to forgiveness and eventually, DEEP LOVE, something that by GRACE (through the Rosary) we will obtain!

In order to help us develop such love, we must imagine them as our own “BLOOD” related MEMBERS, like a son/daughter, brother/sister, father/mother, uncle/aunt, etc. It is a call to pray for them as if they truly were part of our family! This reflection, here and there, will be honored by the Lord and love will start flowing from our hearts for them. With the Chaplet of Mercy, we should ask for atonement for our sins of any hatred and madness against them for walking and showing us signs of their right to do whatever they want without any respect to human life…At times, we do not show resentment but indifference and this has to be converted into actual love, and again, God can do that in our souls and minds. During the Our Father, we should say with purity of intention, “forgive us as WE FORGIVE THEIR TRESPASSES”.  It is very important that we pray with the right intentions and desires to forgive them for the scandal they produce in our hearts.

As you can see, this Pro-Life Rosary refers to the “spiritual” and physical life of a large section of American citizens. Remember that any prayer must be sent to God surrounded by the fumes of our obedience to His will at all times, with acceptance of our sufferings, offering them for these causes as enumerated here.

In another explanation received, I was asked to remind myself and others of the importance to pray this Rosary specially paying attention to the words said. It is much easier if there is a picture or statue of Our Lady, so as we say the Hail Mary, to tell her over and over that she is full of grace in the Presence of the Lord, as we bless her and her Son, asking her to intercede for us at that moment and at the time of our death. This way, the Rosary becomes a conversation with and glorification of our Mother. About 2-3 years ago, I received the grace of praying the Hail Mary’s in this way, and I can assure you that it works in a very positive way and distractions are minimal.  

The Our Father should lead us to say it as we know that our Father is within us and with the words and petitions that Jesus taught us to say with this prayer. Again, it should be a prayer/conversation with our Dad and we can simply ask for such grace.

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy should be directed at asking for atonement for the sins of all of us, pro and against the right to live and asking for His mercy for our spiritual life and the physical life of unborn babies, elders and terminally ill patients.

At the time of the Lord asking me to say this Rosary and Chaplet of Mercy, I sensed some urgency on the part of God to cease this war from Satan tempting men and women made in His image, to destroy lives and calling this a “right”.  In the Presence of God, this war could be considered lunacy or a severe case of spiritual blindness, deafness and dementia. I also felt that He was reminding me that we, the so called pro-lifers, should pray not just in case, but with total TRUST that He could do it for us since nothing is impossible for Him. So, thanking Him ahead of time with surety that He would do it with our participation, and feeling our participation as a grace, should be done as well. He reminded me that if He is with us, who could be against us?… I am sure that He referred to the evil one.

He also reminded me of my spiritual power as one baptized with His Spirit. In other words, I felt that He was referring to our Mother’s words, “Do whatever He tells you.” So, I must pray this Rosary and Chaplet as He has told me for our “U.S. family REUNION feast” to have much wine (healing) from the waters of spiritual blindness, or to have the present day of unbelief and blindness converted into faith, hope and love. I also was sure that this Rosary must be offered to her under the title of “Guadalupe” as you can imagine with the stories of her powerful role in evangelization through history.

10. This Rosary should be offered for all people of all faiths, most especially for our brothers and sisters of the Moslem faith who persecute us and seem to hate us so much. For the intercession of our Mother and the Mercy of God to bless them and save their souls, especially as we are given the grace to truly love them as images of God.

But there is something else BESIDES the intentions for this pro-life Rosary…I felt that I was brought to this country with a scholarship as an exchange student,  even that I had not been selected to begin with because another girl knew more English than I did. So, I learned English  FOR ITS USE TODAY and this scholarship was paid by the U.S. Government!!! I came back to this country again to receive post doctoral training and did practice for many years. I felt and clearly, that I was meant to be here right now. I knew and also clearly that I have to be Mr. Trump’s spiritual right hand FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS, like a mother would do and even that he does not know it. I intend to pray this Rosary and Chaplet of Mercy with special attention to Mr. Trump’s success for the service of all U.S. citizens…This call I am sure that it is also for you who are reading this blog…  I repeat, this Rosary is for the life of babies and elders and terminally ill, but it is also for the SPIRITUAL LIFE of all who are being manipulated by evil forces to cause a terrible division and hatred among all of us, and this way, our democracy gets tainted with lack of democracy for those they want to kill.  A democracy negating the rights to some of the citizens, it is not a democracy but it is DEMO Crazy…

I must add this long story about my life in a detail form because the Lord insists that I do so… So far, this blog is long… yet He insists that I add it to demonstrate HOW HE CHOOSES US AND PREPARES US FROM THE MOMENT WE WERE TWO CELLS IN THE WOMB OF OUR MOTHERS to do a special service and for which we were created…

1. My mother was a heavy smoker when she became pregnant with me at age 19 ½ years old. Suddenly, she hated cigarettes until I was delivered… It was interesting that she started smoking immediately after my birth and I refused to be breast fed and my grandma was explicit in telling me how I did it… Breastfeeding is a gift for a baby. I now wonder if God made me hate it to protect me from nicotine products…A recent study demonstrated that smoking provokes early labor and children are born prematurely!!! I was born weighing 10 lbs…

2. I was born into a devoted and practicing Carmelite family as I have written before and even shared it in a story placed in the “pages” section of this site.

3. By age 4-5, and I remember it… I knew what I would become as an adult: a doctor of medicine and a secretary with typing as one of the gifts. Indeed it happened and at age 10, I attended a night school 3 times a week to become a secretary while attending regular grades IV and V. I still use some shorthand when I take notes in Spanish in my journal. The typing helped me enormously for my university studies and RIGHT NOW…A member of the U.S. army stationed in the Panama Canal Zone and married to a friend of ours, gave me a typewriter! I graduated at age 11. I also became a doctor of medicine with no problem and no expense to me… Long story but God did it!

4. At 6.5 years I knew that Jesus was PRESENT IN THE EUCHARIST and I fell in love with Him to this day. This is why death is gain for me… since I want to be with Him for all eternity.

5. At age 17 I was chosen to become an exchange student in Manhattan Beach, CA, even that I did not win to begin with. My mother had insisted that I had to attend Lincoln High School in San Jose as a freshman, and I did for one year but turned out to be too expensive for us. Yet, it gave me a foundation to be able to compete for the exchange student scholarship. However, when I met Jesus in the Eucharist and ended up in a brand new school which opened that year in Costa Rica and this to be close to Him, I had English classes and I still have my notebook from my first grade…This is a great example of how our God prepare us…

I must mention that the scholarship was provided by the AFS, American Field Service, founded by an ex member of the U.S. armed forces… It was the FIRST YEAR FOR LATIN AMERICA but for years they had brought students from Europe. They chose 4 countries: Nicaragua, Costa Rica Argentina and Chile. Furthermore, the Costa Rican Government chose my public hi school for the one scholarship for a girl since they were not prepared for the AFS service, as they did later and had other hi schools participate to this date…Not only that, but a girl named Carmen Lidia Guerrero Lobo who had attended for 3 years the Centro Cultural Costarricense Norteamericano (The Cultural Costa Rican American Center) to learn English, she knew this language much better than I did. This selection occurred in August of our junior year. At the beginning of our senior year, she was dropped and I was selected… Nobody gave us an explanation.

Years later, I realized that it was due to my physical appearance. I can pass as an American and she was darker. My foster parents in California wanted a German boy…!!!! They were Catholic!!! For them to accept me, a girl, I had to at least look like an American… (Ouch). They told me on day one to never associate with Hispanics, Jews or African Americans… Also, in order to graduate at Mira Costa Hi, I had to take U.S. History at the junior level. The teacher created a competition to see which student knew the most of American History… I did!!! My picture even appeared in the local paper! My foster parents were soo happy… Some of my Catholic class mates remarked that I was soo devout when I went to receive the Eucharist and returning to my pew I would cross my arms on top of my chest with my head down. Little did they know why!!!

As ordered by the AFS, we had to speak in several clubs (Soroptimist, Lions, ect) about the AFS and what this program meant to us. Then it was when I became notorious for speaking well in public, compared to the other local exchange students from Germany and Denmark! I also took classes on public speaking with a Hollywood actor! We, exchange students were taken to say hello to Mr. Walt Disney!!!! However, since grade school, I was also chosen often to speak during school assemblies and recite poetry. I started writing poetry in my teens. Does this mean that I still have to talk to the masses about Jesus? Who knows!

6. I wanted to become a cardiologist…Yet, when I was already in my first year also known in those days as internship, overnight the Lord placed in my heart that I had to go into anesthesia, and I hated the operating room… I could not talk to Him in those days to ask Him and corroborate the change, but I did change it and it was too late to find an open position for an anesthesia residency. I decided to go into a general practice residency for a year waiting for the next year to start anesthesiology… Yet, out of the blue, Sinai Hospital in Detroit decided to create another residency position just for me…. Of course, my Jesus wanted me to learn that fluoride is the culprit in memory loss in some of us who do not make enough glutathione, the natural detoxifier of our bodies…

7. Eventually and while practicing in Ann Arbor where I received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit (in the Catholic Charismatic Movement), my husband and I decided to return to Latin America, even that I did not want to but he was crazy about going back and helping our people. So we did and after practicing for a year and a half with a very poor scenario of socialized medicine, where patients were mistreated in many ways because the money paid to physicians for their services was low, we decided to return to the U.S. Of course, in hindsight, the Lord needed me to comeback for many reasons… One being to pray for now my country that I love so much!

May this long story and partially shared before, help you be certain that He is in charge of our lives with so much detail for us to comply with our job for which we were created, that trust in His guidance is a must… He takes care of every detail. We only have to say yes to His will and a huge thanks besides.

VI. Final Words

I formally accept this challenge of saying this Pro Life Rosary for the next 4 years, and I place you as my witnesses of my promise to God and His Mom, that I will love my brothers and sisters the best I can and obey His calling for further conversions to even give my life for them. I want to face Him at my personal judgment and tell Him that I did whatever Jesus told me for His Glory and the salvation of many souls.

Let’s give ourselves four years to see what LOVE can do and how His love and mercy will change us to become lovers of all people, just as He has loved us and keeps loving us. Let God change us as we say “yes” to this challenge to truly be and act PRO LIFE, and not just be a verbal promise without truly helping to save babies and the souls of their parents. The thousands of women who marched last January 21(the largest inaugural protests or 670,000 demonstrators worldwide in U.S. history) like in New York, Chicago, Ohio, Los Angeles, etc. and a few other countries (Australia, Antartica) are our target to love. Let us enter a process of self conversion in order for our love of neighbor to become a torch of graces coming from the Holy Spirit for all of them.

Let us do it with hearts full of thanksgiving for this so great act of mercy on His part. It will happen since for God all things are possible. This miracle will bring many back to the Catholic Church (or Christian churches) as the fruit of witnessing to the world what His love can do through us. HOWEVER, IT ALL STARTS WITH US, with our own conversion into lovers of our brothers and sisters with the help of Our Mother, our Lady of Guadalupe, our guardian angels AND UNDER THE POWER OF GOD’S MERCY. Amen.

I thank you very much for your prayers for all this understanding of what my duties as a citizen are and the deep desire to comply with God’s plan, and these fruits can only come from God’s mercy stirred as never before by your loving and kind intercession! I must add that after being an exchange student in the house of politically affiliated democrats, I became a Republican with President Reagan. Now, I do not have a party affiliation. Now, I am pro-life first and foremost.

Also, your prayers have helped much because my eyes are not happy with this much typing but I made it… Thank you again.

P.S. Today I found in Face book (February 3) that my theologian son had written an article for the Catholic newspaper The Register, explaining many things about Mr. Trumps two weeks in office and doing it with Pope St. John XXIII counsel… It was very clear and nice. You may like to peek at it at the address below:

Let me add that on the recent Feast of the Visitation, I suddenly realized what I have shared before, and that is that I presented my four sons to the Tabernacle where Jesus is present, and the four of them went after 2-3 days after birth… They had their own visitation to the Temple… I vividly remember what I said to Jesus: “You gave him to me: I give him back to You. Please bless him and protect him.” Well, now I realized that I was also presenting them to the “Seat of Mercy”… That is, Jesus and His Mom…All of them turned out so good and loving. I do not know what it is to raise teenagers… This visitation seems to have helped much.
