How one such as "Itchy Watch", could claim to be a Catholic, and yet refuse to follow the Pope, the Vatican, the Catholic Catechism, is beyond my comprehension. Sounds a lot like Obama, that takes the oath of office, and swears to uphold the constitution, then when in office continuously attacks the constitution. Anthony is the same way, and I would bet voted for the "Attacker of the Catholic Church" with his mandates, that the catholic church must provide for contraception, even though it is against the Catholic faith, guaranteed by the same constitution that he had sworn to uphold and defend. I guess a Liberal is a Liberal in everything they do. Where in our bill of rights, was contraception ever to be paid for by the government and the people who pay for the governments spending? What is next? paying for smoking? Going out to eat dinner? Going to a baseball, soccer, basketball game? Anthony states that he doesn't believe that the Pope, Vatican, GOD , has any right to tell a woman what to do with their bodies, and yet want the people of the catholic church to pay for the MURDER, of the mistakes they make, even though they are on contraception, including their partners. Why do they not demand that men be given free Condoms?
And these ideas from a Eucharistic Minister. Why?
So that his family can play around,and be covered by the medical coverage afforded by the church?
Is this what he has been teaching his children?
And all the while calling himself a Catholic, and a Eucharistic Minister? How did he and others that want to be an integral partner and participating Catholic, come to such anti-catechism catholic?
People such as these do more damage to the Catholic Church than the non-catholics do, and the last letter of Fatima speaks of the Apostasy, that will destroy the Catholic church. With the attacks on our Church by the LBGT and homosexuals, the attack on our parishioners by the Pedophile priests and lay people, people like "Itchy Watch"
giving out communion, and expounding the Catholic beliefs as being like a menu at a restaurant, where you take and chose what you want to believe, and yet profess the "profession of faith" every Sunday, and once back home, do and believe everything contrary to that "Profession of Faith". Yet when we admonish,(as the Bible teaches) those errant brothers and sisters, we are attacked by vile cursings, demeaning name callings, and accusations of judgmental actions. Jesus taught us to not be COWARDS, and to do as he had done with the Sanhedrin,and the leaders of the Jewish church.
Jesus taught, "If you abide in my word, then you are truly disciples of me,and you shall know the truth,and the truth will set you free" (John 8:31-32). Oh I forgot, Anthony doesn't believe in the Bible, nor the Catholic Catechism! From where does he get this doctrine that he practices and believes?
Anthony, these are love postings to you, in hopes that your eyes will be opened to the truth.
I had many times in the long past believed I was following the truth, and yet was blinded, and was not seeing the real truth. I pray for your soul, and the errors of your beliefs.
Dominus Vobiscum

Yes I'll be there. Another sad Sunday for Anthony the EM with his "buddy" Msgr. Jim gone another week from OLL. Msgr. is a very busy man and has a lot of other things to do. Jim texted me last week about it and I know he called you Frank.
Frank, Lou,
I assume you had told Msgr Jim about the antics of Anthony, then you must have received some idea of what the problem is with Anthony.
I know how busy Msgr is, but still , your reporting about the postings of Anthony must be very disturbing to him ,as it is contrary to what his homilies are about. It wouldn't take much for Msgr to do to straighten out Anthony, since he lingers on every action that Msgr does. I had believed that Msgr was not aware of what Anthony was spouting out, and posting. Is Msgr afraid that Anthony may go into a psychotic rage? The fact that he may be aware of this and can do nothing about, it is even more disturbing to me. Have you discussed with Msgr about Anthony's beliefs and anti-Pope postings? Is it really Anthony that is posting or someone(as I have suspected) else in his family? If so then our prayers should encompass his family, and Anthony should be made to correct his errant child. Please answer me on this site instead of the other one as I don't think at this time all of this information should be posted there, as it is all hearsay at this point.

without getting too specific, if you know what I mean Bruser -- suffice to say the pastor is aware of said behaviors. The info was given to him by a close fried of his from his previous Parrish

I believe he was told to cease his postings-- hence his disappearance during Lent. His appearance on Easter Sunday was probably just pent up anger.

Jim had his insane fans at every Parrish he served. His personality lends itself to attract all these needy individuals. These people then become obsessed with being his "go to" pal. Anthony, however is a case all to himself. Really disturbed man.

iYou were right way back when -you said he should be ignored. Only pray can heal Anthony . He needs to understand that the pastor is not Jesus, and at times very incorrect on church teachings
I fall more into your category of Catholicism, Bruser. You have strengthen my beliefs in our faith.

I can only say and do as I am lead to do by the Holy Spirit.I was blessed by a personal situation,and experienced the Holy Spirit in a way that I even am amazed even to this day. I went from being destroyed for 3 days while in the navy, to being healed and feel the Holy Spirit enter my body and heal me. I tear up every time I relate this story has I have before a whole group in church. I always feel that I have not done enough to thank GOD for this blessing as I am not a saint, and will fail even after expounding the Divine Mercy of GOD. Such is the battle that consistently goes on in each one of us, and we must feel joy when we can fight off temptations that the Devil and his evil companions thrust at us.
GOD bless you Frank, you are beloved of GOD, and as St Paul had said, "fight the good Fight", recognize that we are but human and will fall at times, but not to be destroyed, and confess our sins by going to confession to a priest like Fr Mason. Many parishioners are fearful and ashamed to go to him, and yet he is always understanding, and guides us through the Holy Spirit.

thank for the kind words Bruser- I am so angry over the total news blackout of the killer doctor in Philly who murdered 7 children after they were born alive. SICK and in my heart of hearts, anyone who proscribes to the so called pro choice oxymoron should rot in hell when they meet our lord

No mercy for child killers! We live in a barbaric country whereby this story is IGNORED except on the Fox network. GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR PEOPLE. THOSE OF US WHO WILL SHUN THESE SICK AND DISGUSTING ANIMAL WILL DO SO LOUDLY AND CLEARLY!

Today bring to Me the Souls who especially venerate and glorify My Mercy*,

and immerse them in My mercy. These souls sorrowed most over my Passion and entered most deeply into My spirit. They are living images of My Compassionate Heart. These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life. Not one of them will go into the fire of hell. I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death.

Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your mercy; and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy, and their hearts, overflowing with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg You O God:

Show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless mercy of His, He, Himself, will defend as His glory. Amen.

*The text leads one to conclude that in the first prayer directed to Jesus, Who is the Redeemer, it is "victim" souls and contemplatives that are being prayed for; those persons, that is, that voluntarily offered themselves to God for the salvation of their neighbor (see Col 1:24; 2 Cor 4:12). This explains their close union with the Savior and the extraordinary efficacy that their invisible activity has for others. In the second prayer, directed to the Father from whom comes "every worthwhile gift and every genuine benefit,"we recommend the "active" souls, who promote devotion to The Divine Mercy and exercise with it all the other works that lend themselves to the spiritual and material uplifting of their brethren.

oday bring to Me those who do not believe in God and those who do not know Me,

I was thinking also of them during My bitter Passion, and their future zeal comforted My Heart. Immerse them in the ocean of My mercy."

Most compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who do not believe in God and of those who as yet do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in You, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

*Our Lord's original words here were "the pagans."

For our separated brother "Itchy Watch":
Today bring to Me the Souls of those who have separated themselves from My Church*,

and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. During My bitter Passion they tore at My Body and Heart, that is, My Church. As they return to unity with the Church My wounds heal and in this way they alleviate My Passion."

Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son's Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.

*Our Lord's original words here were "heretics and schismatics,"

Today bring to Me the Meek and Humble Souls and the Souls of Little Children,

and immerse them in My mercy. These souls most closely resemble My Heart. They strengthened Me during My bitter agony. I saw them as earthly Angels, who will keep vigil at My altars. I pour out upon them whole torrents of grace. I favor humble souls with My confidence.

Most Merciful Jesus, You yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart." Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children. These souls send all heaven into ecstasy and they are the heavenly Father's favorites. They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance. These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek souls, upon humble souls, and upon little children who are enfolded in the abode which is the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son. Their fragrance rises from the earth and reaches Your very throne. Father of mercy and of all goodness, I beg You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight You take in them: Bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Today bring to Me the Souls who are in the prison of Purgatory,

and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice."

Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded: Manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way but only through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.

I received this letter from my friends at SSPX on Bishop Fellay's insights into the new Pope.

His actions in the past indicate a degrading of the Catholic church. Bishop Fillay gives his documentary with explanations and sources, which show his past feelings and actions.
His pandering to the Islamics
His participations in non-catholic worshiping in Synagogue worships
Friendliness with Communism, and the Argentinian anti-Christian government.
His praise of Ecumenical Council II, and his anti-traditional feelings towards conservative actions in the Church, calling those that wish to return to the old traditional ways as, "Stubbornness, and foolishness of heart".
Then I will continue to be a wall against the acceptance of VCII, and if need be, will find a way to continue
my traditional worshiping of Jesus as our savior and Second person of GOD, as I have been led to do.
As the Apostles were not afraid to be outcasts from the Jewish Sanhedrin, and the Jewish Synagogue, so will I glory in that roll. I did not study, and look for GOD all my years, only to give up the truth that I found in the Traditional
Catholic church, inorder to appease our false leaders, who are anything but Shepherds. Man will mistakenly preach falsehoods,and misconceptions,but GOD is always faithful and true.
Pray that our leaders do not weaken and falls prey to the Devils lies, thereby lead the flock into the den of the wolves. Who are these Shepherds following? Have the years since the Holy Spirit
filled the Apostles with the gifts, diminished that message? Has the Apostasy that has infected our church become stronger than the Pentecostal
Baptizing by the Holy Spirit? May it never be!
Still the actions of our leaders are leading our church to the chastisements written in Revelations. GOD have mercy on us all, protect us,
and lead us back to the light of GOD.

Today bring to Me all Devout and Faithful Souls,

and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. These souls brought me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were a drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness."

Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Why praying the Divine Mercy Prayers every day is a simple quick gift to those in need, and for ourselves and all sinners:

Ready for some good news....:)

I have 2 short, but wonderful stories that were told to me by the Monsignor of my church during a meeting he and I had yesterday. The first story about the Deacon took place quite a few years ago, and the second about Our Lady of Lourdes happened only last year. Both miracles have been kept on the quiet side, but I wish to share them with you.

The first miracle happened a few years back when our Deacon was diagnosed with Pancriotic Cancer. Monsignor attested to the fact that the Deacon's health was serious, and how from his appearence looked as though he was going to pass away. However, being the Deacon's wife was a personal friend of Padre Pio, as they grow up as childhood friends,(how lucky is she???) Padre Pio was prayed to and asked to interceded. And boy did he! Yes, upon the very next Dr. visit, the Deacon was found to be cancer free! I have spoken to the Deacon quiet a few times and heard him talk about a healing but with no details. I had no idea Padre Pio was involved...I should have known!:)

The second story is about a Polish Priest who came to the Our Lady of Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage event that was held at our Parish. Unbeknownst to Monsignor at the time, the Polish Priest had cancer...but it wouldn't be for much longer,...the Priest told Monsignor that after the virtual Piligriamge and washing in the Lourdes water, he believes he was healed. At his very next Dr. visit he too was found to be cancer free!

How great is our God!!!

I have 2 short, but wonderful stories that were told to me by the Monsignor of my church during a meeting he and I had yesterday. The first story about the Deacon took place quite a few years ago, and the second about Our Lady of Lourdes happened only last year. Both miracles have been kept on the quiet side, but I wish to share them with you.

The first miracle happened a few years back when our Deacon was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Monsignor attested to the fact that the Deacon's health was serious, and how from his appearance looked as though he was going to pass away. However, being the Deacon's wife was a personal friend of ST. Padre Pio, as they grow up as childhood friends,(how lucky is she?)ST. Padre Pio was prayed to and asked to interceded. And boy did he! Yes, upon the very next Dr. visit, the Deacon was found to be cancer free! I have spoken to the Deacon quiet a few times and heard him talk about a healing but with no details. I had no idea ST.Padre Pio was involved...I should have known!:)

The second story is about a Polish Priest who came to the Our Lady of Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage event that was held at our Parish. Unbeknown to Monsignor at the time, the Polish Priest had cancer...but it wouldn't be for much longer,...the Priest told Monsignor that after the virtual Pilgrimage and washing in the Lourdes water, he believes he was healed. At his very next Dr. visit he too was found to be cancer free!

How great is our God!!!

Today bring to Me all Devout and Faithful Souls,

and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. These souls brought me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were a drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness."

Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.
