The Hail Mary & Marian devotion are definitely Biblical, found at the beginning of Luke's gospel, as well as existing throughout tradition.

"Henceforth, all generations will call me blessed, because he who is mighty has done great things for me and holy is his name."   Luke 1:48 - 1:49  (Marian Devotion fulfills this Biblical prophecy.)

Perhaps you know the thought process of those who follow TV preachers clad in business suits.  They claim that praying the Hail Mary is pagan idolatry, especially when done in front of a statue of Mary.  They claim that Marian Devotion [1] detracts from Jesus ... that it [2] robs Christ of the attention due to him ... that it [3] draws people away from Jesus, making him a stranger to mankind.  Do you see the supreme asininity in that claim?  

Take Note:

To start, the Hail Mary comes directly from the Bible itself, in the Gospel of Luke ... at the very beginning of it.  Things derived directly from the Bible cannot possibly be pagan idolatry.  Next:

The most common Marian devotion is the Rosary.  It was originally called, the Angelic Psalter.  The Rosary consists in praying the Hail Mary several times in succession, while simultaneously meditating on specific events involving Jesus Christ. 

The Hail Mary takes about 20 seconds to pray, unless if you're a contemplative, upon which it would take you about 35 to 45 seconds to complete.  Well, at the eight second mark, a person praying the Hail Mary states (either verbally or silently)  ...  "blessed is the fruit of your womb," Luke 1:42, with the word, Jesus, added to the prayer.

Now, the Rosary consists in calling Jesus blessed every 20 to 35 seconds, time after time.  How could a devotion which repeatedly calls Jesus blessed be one that detracts from Jesus?  How could a devotion that consists in a person reflecting on the Incarnation, Life, Sufferings, Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ detract from Christ?  Hello?  Is anybody home here?

The Centering Prayer

In addition, being that the name of Jesus is blessed by the Rosary devotee every 20 to 35 seconds during Rosary prayer, this means that within the Rosary is the CENTERING PRAYER that was done by contemplative monks in ages past.  They simply repeated the name Jesus, within spaces of time, to keep focused.  So, while you are praying the Rosary, you are simultaneously doing the Centering Prayer.

The Our Father, too

The meditation of each mystery of the Rosary actually begins with the Our Father, taught by Jesus, himself.  So, how does observing the formula for prayer that was taught by Jesus detract from Jesus, especially when it's immediately followed by calling Jesus blessed, every 20 to 35 seconds?  In fact, as soon as you pray the Our Father, you are acknowledging Jesus as your "teacher."  Therefore, praying the Rosary consists in the devotee calling Jesus the blessed teacher --- or blessed rabbi.  Now, how does this constitute pagan idolatry that detracts from Jesus?

One more thing about the Hail Mary:  

The opening words of it are the words of God the Father, himself, spoken through the Archangel Gabriel.  This is why the Hail Mary was originally called, the Angelic Salutation.  In as much, to have an aversion to the Hail Mary is to have an aversion to the Will of God the Father, as was announced by an archangel.

Concerning the translation of "full of grace" in the Gospel of Luke, it comes from the common citizen's Greek.  It is translated from KECHARITOMENE, and it refers to someone who has been completely graced and who remains in the process of being graced.  It's like a flowing river which continues to get water from its tributary water sources.  In Mary's case, the tributaries flowing into her are the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  So, the Hail Mary Prayer should actually be, "Hail Mary, fully graced, the Lord is with you." 

People who condemn the Rosary have one thing in common

They're lazy.  It's that simplex.  The Rosary requires a person to state verbal prayer, at least in silence, while simultaneously meditating on an aspect of Christ and the Holy Spirit.  They literally have trouble doing both types of prayer at the same time.  So, instead of being honest about their lack of concentration, they condemn the Rosary.  It's a lazy man's way of getting out of work. 

Now, if you have trouble combining verbal prayer with meditation, simply pray one Our Father and One Hail Mary, and then meditate on at least one of the "mysteries" of the Rosary.   Each mystery is basically an event.  One is a repeated event, concerning one thing Christ said.  The other mysteries are all single events.  

There are the Joyous, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious mysteries.  Other mysteries not yet mentioned in this discourse include [1] Christ's baptism at the hands of his cousin, John ... [2] the Wedding Feast of Cana ... [3] Christ stating a couple times, in different places, that the "Kingdom of God is at hand"... [4] the Transfiguration, etc.  

Now, meditating on those events should be within your capabilities, even if only for a short while.  One Our Father and one Hail Mary will only take a minute and a half ... or even less time.  Easy to do ... unless if you are pathologically lazy.  If you're pathologically lazy, then you are also an impatient person.  If you're an impatient person, you also have a violent streak within you.  You need the Rosary all the more.

John the Baptist is a pivotal feature in Marian Devotion

Now, the words, "blessed is the fruit of your womb," were spoken by Mary's cousin, Elizabeth, after Elizabeth was "filled with the Holy Spirit."  Thus, to hate the Hail Mary is to also hate the inspiration of the Holy Spirit --- or to be jealous of Elizabeth for getting it 2,000 years before you were even born.

Incidentally, Saint Elizabeth was the mother of John the Baptist, and the Visitation involves Mary visiting Elizabeth, when both women were pregnant.  Elizabeth had a three month head start.

Now, the central mystery of the Visitation was that, as soon as Mary greeted Elizabeth, John the (Future) Baptist was rendered into the State of Grace.  In being rendered into the state of grace, he immediately recognized Christ within Mary, and he leapt for joy.  Ironically, it was Christ who rendered him in the state of grace, in the first place.  And Mary was there, front & center, like the miraculous Ark of the Covenant, literally carrying Christ.

John the (Future) Baptist was not conceived in the state of grace, as was Mary.  But, he was born in the state of grace.  Therefore, the Second Joyous Mystery, namely the Visitation, is the Mystery of John the Baptist.  And being that John the Baptist was the prophet commissioned to herald the arrival of the long-awaited Messiah, meditating on John will NOT detract from Christ.  It will enhance your understanding of Christ, all the more.  In fact, having John as your intercessor, praying for you, only makes you all the more protected from the servants of Lies & Violence.

By the way, being that John the Baptist was rendered into the State of Grace as a pre-born infant, he is proof that infant baptism is completely valid.  The Anabaptists, aka the Baptists, aka the Born-again "Christians," long since claimed that infant baptism is invalid.  St Luke says that they were & are hellishly wrong ... as usual.   Next issue . . .

Mary walks into Elizabeth's dwelling and speaks.  Immediately, John the Future Baptist is rendered in the State of Grace, upon the sound of Mary's voice.  What does this illustrate?   

ANS:  It illustrates that Mary is the Mediatrix of Grace ... as opposed to the mediator of the expiation of sin --- as opposed to the mediator of atonement.  Christ, himself, is the sacrificial lamb whose blood washes away sin.  Only the Eternal God could do that task, after having been made man.  However, the Blood of Christ came from the blood of Mary.  Yet, concerning those two circulatory systems, only Christ's blood was divine ... literally divine.

In review, to be the mediatrix of those graces which come from the Holy Spirit is something altogether different than to be the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.  So, cool it with the "idolatry" accusations.  It's just that the Virgin Mary walks into a dwelling, speaks, and voila; a child is rendered into the state of grace and leaps for joy.  That's power, and that power was & is a Grace from God.  

Very simply, Mary is the treasurer of the Grace of God.  Jesus' act of redemption is what unlocked the treasure chest ... the bank vault of grace ... the front doors of the Spiritual Fort Knox.   So, instead of regarding Mary as the Queen of Heaven, it is more proper to regard her as the Treasurer of Heaven. 

More specifically, due to the sacrifice of Christ, God the Holy Spirit was empowered to bestow upon Mary a treasury of graces.  Those graces became her possessions.  And a person may do with her possessions as she wills.  So, she shares her graces to others, in the millions ... the hundred millions ... even in the billions.   However, asking for the graces is required.  Graces aren't haphazardly strewn about, by her.

In review, by means of Christ's sacrifice, God gave Mary a wealth of graces.  She does with those graces as she pleases.  She explained this in Paris, in 1830, via a supernatural event endowed upon the incorruptible saint, Catherine Laboure.  This was also explained in Naples, during a supernatural event in 1884.  See:  Rue de Bac apparitions, 1830 & 54 day novena apparition of 1884.

The bottom line is that the Rosary enhances awareness of the presence of Christ, the charism of Christ, the personality of Christ, the mission of Christ, and the commitment of Christ.  Thus, the Rosary instills hope in Christ.   So, how does the Rosary detract from Christ, again? 

In summary, devotion to the Rosary is the act of joining Mary in being a fellow-follower of Jesus Christ.  She happens to be the most insightful follower --- the most powerful follower.  Jesus & Mary, as well as John the Baptist, can easily finish each other's sentences.  In fact, when St. John leapt for joy in the womb of his mother, he was literally finishing Mary's sentence, when she was greeting Elizabeth.

Sometimes praying the Rosary is like having a consultation with Mary.  At other times, it's like performing an inspection of the spiritual world.  At other times, it's like standing in front of a Ferris Wheel, and getting swooped-up in one of the seats.  

Prayer is the act of reaching out to God.  Heaven then reaches back to you, extending graces to you.  An actual grace is basically an impulse upon your soul.  Sanctifying grace, on the other hand, is a constant state of being.  It's like spiritual oxygen.  Without it, you suffocate.

Call to mind the miraculous cloak of Elijah which was then inherited by Elisha.  Well, all Brown Scapulars are an extension of that cloak.  If you can explain Elijah's cloak, then you can explain the Brown Scapular.

In review, Sacred Scripture itself states, "Henceforth, all generations will call me blessed, because he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name."  Gospel of Luke, 1:48-49.  Therefore, if you do NOT call Mary blessed, then you are anti-biblical, anti-gospel, and anti-Christ, no matter how saved you arrogantly think you are.  After all, it was Christ who chose to become man in the Virgin Mary, and he was not required to first obtain the approval of Protestants to do so.  Thus, the truth posted below triggers outrage & seething hatred in the individuals who call themselves "saved:" 

 The blood of Christ came from the blood of Mary.  

In order for that to have happened, Mary needed to have already been pure.  The Second Person of the Holy Trinity was not going to inhabit a trash bin.  So, to deny Mary's purity is to deny that Christ came in the flesh and dwelt among us.  It's also to deny that Christ was pure, from Day 1.  All in all, to deny Mary is to simultaneously deny Christ ... and visa versa.  So, if you despise Mary, then you are less than a Big Nothing.  You're not even a Zero.  You're Negative Digits.


St Paul's miraculous power, along with his followers' use of 3rd class relics

St. Paul's writings have been used by millions of ... let us politely say ... anti-Catholics, to justify living the life of laziness & selectively retained immoralities.  According to them, St. Paul said that you can do whatever you want and go to Heaven anyway, as long as you proclaim belief in a certain Nazarene whose name has been repeatedly used in vain, on modern movie screens.  

Newsflash:  This just in ===> The exact same St Paul wrote exactly the opposite.  

Example #1:

                  Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God? 

                 Do not be deceived; neither fornicators  nor idolaters   nor adulterers 

          nor boy prostitutes  nor sodomites  nor thieves  nor the greedy  nor drunkards 

                        nor slanderers  nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. --- 1 Cor. 6:9

Let it be repeated.  St Paul, the disciplined & self-controlled aesthetic, NEVER wrote that you can commit all the sins you want and still go to Heaven, so long as you express belief in the miraculous Nazarene who was crucified by Roman soldiers.  Yet, an entire religion that kept splintering into "denominations" was founded upon that one premise.  Concerning this overly audacious Biblical interpretation, when Paul wrote that he no longer followed the law, he was referring to the Law of Moses and its many rituals which included animal sacrifice.  He was NOT referring to the moral law.  In fact, he also wrote:

              Now the works of the flesh are obvious:  immorality,  impurity,  licentiousness, 

         idolatry,  sorcery,  hatreds,  rivalry,  jealousy,  outbursts of fury,  acts of selfishness, 

            dissensions,  factions,  occasions of envy,  drinking bouts,  orgies,  and the like.

                    I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things 

                                             will not inherit the kingdom of God.  ---  Galatians, 5:19

Equally important is that Romans 3:28 did NOT state that "Faith alone suffices."  The less than diplomatic Martin Luther added the word, "alone," changing the entire meaning of St. Paul's mission & ministry.  Martin Luther dedicated his beer-drinking (ale-drinking) years to promoting the Sin of Presumption --- the sin of presuming God's mercy. 

Yet today, all of the modern Protestant Bibles omit the "Luther translation," having published instead the Koine Greek version of Romans 3:28 that actually was written by Paul.  That scriptural passage simply stated that a person is justified by having  Faith in the Jewish Messiah of Nazareth without needing to perform the rituals of the Jewish Law of Moses which included animal sacrifice.  The actual translation is:

 For we consider that a person is justified by faith apart from works of the law.  Does God belong to Jews alone?  Does he not belong to Gentiles, too?  Yes, also to Gentiles, for God is one and will justify the circumcised on the basis of faith and the uncircumcised through faith.  --- Romans 3:28

In electing to revert to fidelity in the Koine Greek version of Romans 3:28, Protestant denominations elected to delete Protestantism's thesis statement.  They deleted Protestantism's raison d'etre.  This is tragically ironic, in light of the wars & killings which could have been prevented --- highlighted in the 30 Years War and in Cromwell's genocide of Irish Catholics, as well as in the severely emotional anti-Catholicism of 19th & early 20th Century America.

There is the need of millions of people to quit making a mockery out of Saint Paul's epistles.  Moreover, there is a canonized saint of recent decades who converted from Protestantism.  He famously stated that, the deeper you delve into history, the further you remove yourself from Protestantism.   The exact quote was, "To be deep in history is to cease being Protestant."  His name is John Henry Newman.  All in all, St. Paul ... and Elizabeth Ann Seton ... as well as John Henry Newman ... should be the patron saints of Protestant conversions.  That will work ... really well.

In order to rationalize its existence, Protestantism performed selective amnesia in discarding 1,100+ years of Church history ...  all deleted from the Protestant memory, being that there was no Protestantism on any scene for the first 1,450 years of Christianity.  Protestantism will acknowledge Christianity up to the time of the FIRST Council of Nicaea, in 325 C.E; but not the SECOND Council of Nicaea, in 787.  After the Year 325 comes the amnesia blackout in the mind of Protestantism.

Martin Luther wasn't born until 1,450+ years after the original Pentecost Sunday, when Peter first spoke publicly in the name of Christ.  According to Protestantism, God the Holy Spirit is a liar who was not guiding the believers of Christ for 1450 years.  According to Protestantism, Martin Luther is the Vicar of the Holy Spirit who finally brought the Holy Spirit to mankind.  Protestantism denies the reality of the very sacraments which divert souls from spiritual death and which give souls purpose for being.  Protestantism is the Big Blackout, in several ways.

Now, Protestantism got its beginning by . . . stealing massive amounts of Roman Catholic Church property, in places where they could get away with it . . . and by killing Roman Catholics by the truckload, in places where they could get away with it.  Now, is that any way to start a religion?  Is that any way to start anything?   None the less, Protestantism was largely a geopolitical movement with occasionally unseemly (unexpected allies.)  This meant that Protestantism was a political party.  Then, out of it came religious fanaticism.

All in all, there was NO REFORMATION in the 1500s.  There are only Theft & Murder back then .... and defamation; lots of defamation.  That which was called the Reformation was actually the Great Defamation ... even the defaming of God, in claiming that the Holy Spirit was a liar and a bumbling failure who didn't guide the Church for 1450 years --- in claiming that the Holy Spirit was such a failure that the German ale drinker, Martin Luther, had to replace the Holy Spirit.  

Yeah,  Martin Luther was going to show the Holy Spirit who was boss.  Guess where Martin Luther is at this very moment.  Did you ever study exorcism transcripts?  His name came up, when a possessing devil was ordered by the exorcist to give his name ... to the exorcist, during a 19th Century exorcism.  For the record, damned humans have the capability of possessing a living person as much as a demon.  A demon is a fallen angel.   A devil is a damned human.

Martin Luther died a sudden death (at the age of 62).  He died without the Sacraments of the Church.  He rejected the Sacraments of the Church.  Do the math, here. 

Let us now address the miraculous power of Saint Paul which was somehow transmitted into linens and aprons whenever they touched St. Paul, himself.   Acts 19: 11-12 reads as follows:

                              So extraordinary were the mighty deeds which God accomplished 

                             at the hands of PAUL that, when facial cloths or aprons that 

                            touched his skin were applied to the sick, their diseases left 

                           them and the evil spirits came out of them. 

Now, Acts 19 describes the valid & successful use of Third Class Relics -- or third degree relics.  Such relics are pieces of cloth or other physical items such as paper that are touched to an actual living saint or to the bodily remains of a saint who has already gone into eternity.   

Of course, the Church never declares any living being a saint.  None the less, people in the Church, on occasion, were known for miraculous results to their interactions with others.  It doesn't happen everyday, but it did happen in the very turbulent history of the true church of Christ ... as opposed to a "knock-off" church produced by Henry Tudor, his less-than-friendly daughter, Martin Luther & the politically motivated Elector of Saxony, the Swiss John Calvin, and more recent names who became associated with mass suicide and/or gun battles with federal agents.

Of course, a person who identifies himself as "a born-again Christian" or a Baptist or a Fundamentalist or someone "saved" would call the use of relics the ritualistic act of idolatry.   Well, to declare this is to declare St. Paul a ritualistic idolater.  In fact, it's to call the New Testament ritualistic idolatry.  This is because the use of third-class relics were used to spread Saint Paul's miraculous power.  Therefore, relics are Biblical.  The Catholic tradition of employing saints' relics traces itself back to St. Paul's followers.

The Old Testament gives at least one instance of a miracle involving a First Class Relic --- or first degree relic.  That type of relic is the actual saint, himself; as in a bone fragment, etc.  In the Second Book of Kings, a miracle occurred when a corpse was thrown into the grave of Elijah's prime student and spiritual heir, Elisha. 

2 Kings  13:21

 Once some people were burying a man, when suddenly they saw such a raiding band.  So they cast the man into the grave of Elisha, and everyone went off.  But when the man came in contact with the bones of Elisha, he came back to life and got to his feet.

 Thus, miracles done upon contacting a first class relic IS very Biblical.  So, if you are no-no on relics, then you are also no-no on the Bible, probably unbeknownst to you ... until now.  Now, concerning the Cloak of Elijah:

2 Kings 2:14: 

Wielding the mantle which had fallen from Elijah, he struck the water and said, “The LORD, the God of Elijah—where is he now?”   He struck the water.  It divided, and he crossed over.   Elijah's prime student did this with Elijah's cloak, so stated for the record.

Elijah's Cloak was a Second Class Relic.  A second-class relic is a former physical possession of a saint.  Examples are a writing quill, a walking cane, a favorite chair, an article of clothing, and Elijah's Cloak.   With this comes the conversation of metaphysical power which can be a lengthy topic.  HOWEVER, all angels have a METAPHYSICAL attachment to physical creation, and they perhaps come into the relic schematic, in matters involving second-class relics effecting miracles.

 Of course, Catholics understand that not everything is in the Bible, being that St. John wrote this into his Gospel.  Plus, Paul told his followers to also observe that which he taught them verbally, in addition to whatever written teachings were sent to them.  Verbal teaching is usually called, TRADITION.

Tradition comes from none other than the Latin, TRADITIONEM.  It means to deliver across something ... to hand-over ... to hand down.   The Greek equivalent is parĂ¡dosi̱ which actually means to surrender something to others. 

2 Thessalonians 2:15

                       Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that

                 you were taught, either by an ORAL STATEMENT or by a letter of ours.


Thus, TRADITION --- church teaching that comes from outside of the Bible ---  is Biblical, ironically enough.  The Bible is NOT God.  It's a testimonial to the existence of God and to the mindset of God.  Mindset is understood to be the same as "personality."  Moreover, the Law of God and the Will of God are the exact same thing.  To claim that "everything is in the Bible," is the sin of  IDOLATRY.  It's the worship of the Bible, instead of God.

Moreover, being that God is so infinitely massive, the task of being God cannot be accomplished by merely one person.  It takes three infinite persons to accomplish the mission of being God ... literally.  In as much, in order for God to exist, God can only exist as a multiplicity of Three Individual Persons who share the exact same essence and nature.


Also see:

While we're still here, let's address the claim that it's a sin to call a priest, "father."  After all, Jesus did say to call no one your father, but God the Father.  Well, the Catholic Church does recognize God the Father to be the Unmoved Mover ... and the Uncatalyzed Catalyst ... who authored life and wrote the blueprint of the only Church ever founded by his only Begotten Son.  The use of the name, father, as it applies to priests, has a lesser meaning of the word.  And that practice came from St. Paul, himself.   In the FIRST Letter to the Thessalonians, Chapter 2, verses 10 to 12, Saint Paul wrote:

                               You are witnesses, and so is God, how devoutly,  justly,                                                                       and blamelessly we behaved toward you believers.

              As you know, we treated each one of you as a FATHER treats his children,  
            exhorting and encouraging you, while insisting that you conduct yourselves 
                      as worthy of the God who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
The conclusion is that calling a priest "Father" IS BIBLICAL.  Case Closed.  Catholic haters lose.  The bottom line is that some people think that they know the mind of God & the Will of God, when the fact is that they are clueless.  Concerning people who don't read the Bible at all, they are more talented at insulting a person's intelligence.  Each example of this would be an article of its own.  
None the less, the aforementioned shows --- at face value --- that the Biblical Paul --- the author of multiple epistles --- had a significant influence upon the ordinary practices of the Catholic Church.  Catholic haters are not willing to admit this.  The Catholic Church was the first Christianity.  It will be the last Christianity, also.
C'est tout, pour maintenant.


The Catholic Doctrines about the Virgin Mary and the Reason Why

The Gospel of St. John expressly reminds the reader that not 
everything is in the Bible.  Yet, Protestantism ignored St. John,
being that it bases itself on a very fatal and tunnel-visioned be-
lief in Sola Scriptura.  Protestants demand a Biblical reference
that justifies Marian devotion.  The source is the Gospel of St.
Luke, where Mary said:

My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my 
Savior, because he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness.  
Henceforth,  all generations shall call me blessed,  because 
he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is 
his name.

In light of this, if you have a devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, then you call
her blessed by means of said devotion.  In doing so, you are fulfilling a Biblical
prophecy of all generations (after hers and including hers) calling her blessed.

Those who do not call her blessed are NOT Christians, only pretenders lodged
in heretical sects that rejected many precepts and doctrines which trace back to
the original apostles.

All in all, devotion to Mary consists in being part of All Succeeding Generat-
ions calling Mary blessed as was prophesied in the Bible.  It's that simple.
Concerning simplicity, it is written,

                       "From  the mouths of babes come perfect praise."

Thus, a child praying the Rosary is fulfilling Sacred Scripture in sending forth
perfect praise.  People who have trouble accepting this are spiritual gluttons
never satisfied with anything but that which is vain and overbearingly gaudy.
The irony is that embracing a devotion as humble as the Rosary results in the
devotee having lights and a colorfulness equal to a multi-faceted gem which
is very clear, as opposed to muddy and muddled.

In addition, there is the account in the Gospel of John, where Christ, while dying
on the Cross, said to John, "Behold.  Your mother."  Devotion to the woman giv-
en to mankind as its mother honors Christ in the pain and death he endured.  Add
to the Biblical sources the words of God the Father, spoken through the Archangel
Gabriel"Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Rejoice oh highly favored 
daughter."  Devotion to God's highly favored daughter honors the God who creat-
ed her.  It also shows a common interest that you and God both hold.

1]  What is the essence of Marian Devotion?

Response:  To start, Mary is NOT a brain dead road sign who merely says, "Do
whatever he says."  Rather, she, unlike any creature of God, brings Jesus to you.
In as much, Marian Devotion consists in Mary taking Jesus and placing him in
your arms.  Then, when you die, Mary takes you and places you in Jesus' arms.
It's that simple.  But, it is the essence of sacredness.  Only the arrogant are in
complete incomprehensive to this reality.
Painted by an Australian friend.

2a]  Isn't looking at a painting or statue of the Virgin Mary idolatry?

Response:  Do you have photos of your loved ones at home?   When you look at
those photos, are you worshiping the people within the frames?   In fact, do you
have photos of sports heroes, war heroes, peace heroes, singing stars, or movie
stars?  Do you worship those people as if you actually believe that they created
all that is seen and unseen?   Religious images are reminders.   They are study
guides that help you recollect something pertinent about the event or person de-
picted in the image upon which you are meditating.

Such images are a view to a scene or a person.   They let you experience the per-
son or the event to some degree.   When you view and make conscious note of an
image of the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, or the Ascension, it places your con-
siderations and realizations at the event represented.

Religious images have symbolism attached to them.  The symbolism for martyrs
includes the article of execution used upon the martyr, as well as a palm branch to
remind the viewer that the saint represented in the image was a martyr.   Thus, in
images of Saint Jude, you will see clubs.  In images of Saint Andrew, you will see
an X-shaped  cross.  In as much, images of the saints are blessed picture books.  
The stained glass versions of such images helped the illiterate tremendously. 

3a]  Where in the Bible does it state that the
        Virgin Mary was conceived without sin?

Response:  It was mentioned at the Annunciation when the Archangel Gabriel said,
"Hail, full of grace. The Lord is with you."   To be full of one thing is to be free of
its opposite.  Therefore, to be full of grace is to be free of sin.  Furthermore, to be
full of grace is different than being filled with the Holy Spirit .  To be filled with
the Holy Spirit still requires the person to receive stipends of grace, so that sin will
not be out of control weeds in the soul.  To be full of grace is to be in a state where
all sin is always crowded out.

The church came before the New Testament.  If it were not for the apostles and the
faith of the early Christians, there would be no series of written texts called the New
Testament.  Therefore, the Bible was made for man --- not man for the Bible.   The
New Testament came forth from Tradition.  Tradition existed first.

The Bible has a limited number of pages, meaning that it's finite.  It was written in
the service of the Infinite God.  Thus, not everything is in the Bible, being that finite
pages cannot contain knowledge of the Infinite.  Therefore, it wasn't required for the
Bible to state that the Virgin Mary was conceived in an immaculate state of soul.  In
fact, John stated in his Gospel,  "There are also many other things that Jesus did,
but if they were to be described individually,  I don't think that the entite world 
would be able to contain the books that would be written."  Therefore, a writer of
the Bible stated that not everything is in the Bible.  Quite frankly, hardly anything is
in the Bible.

The Bible is merely the Beginner's Book.   It's training wheels compared to what the
angels know about the subject, as well as what you'll personally experience in your
interaction with God, the angels, the saints, and even people in this life.   Your edu-
cation will be the result of the Holy Spirit infusing knowledge into you and the oth-
ers who will share their knowledge with you.  This type of thing happens whether
the person given infused knowledge read the Bible or not.  Reading the Bible does
not guarantee holiness.  Satan  knows the Bible far more than anyone of us.  Know-
ing it didn't make him a saint.

3b]  The Bible said that, "In Adam, all have sinned."  
        Isn't the Virgin Mary a member of this "all?"

Response:  Mary wasn't in Adam.  She was in the Holy Spirit.  This is why God
the Father gave the impulse to the archangel Gabriel which resulted in him appear-
ing to Mary and defining her as "Full of Grace."  Never before and never after did
God the Father instruct any angel to appear to anyone on earth and recognize her as
being full of grace.

A handful of  people in scriptural passages were described as being full of the Holy
Spirit, but this is different than being full of grace.   To be full of grace is to possess
all of the graces existing in the treasury of the Holy Spirit, to the point where you can
wield them as if there were yours.  To be full of the Holy Spirit still places the per-
son in need of the Holy Spirit conveying specific needed graces to him/her.   To be
full of the Holy Spirit is to be in possession of sanctifying grace.   To be full of grace
is to be in possession of all actual internal graces without having in your soul a com-
ponent that acts against those graces.  Any component within the soul that acts against
grace is an element of original sin. 

3c]  But what empowered God to create Mary Immaculate?

Response:  The foreseen merits of Christ and Christ's rights as Savior of mankind
did so.  Jesus is the perfect savior.  He has the right to save souls in every spectrum
of life, from the beginning to the end of life.  He was empowered to save a person
who jumped off a bridge, in giving that person the unfailing grace to make a perfect
act of contrition or of love before that person hit the water.   He was empowered to
save from their sins those on their death beds, moments away from eternity.  Thus,
he had the right to save one person from even falling into sin, in the first place. 

What he did to Mary the first moment she was created was equivalent to catching
someone before she falls into the mud.  The fact that he would one day perform the
priestly sacrifice that only he could do was all that was needed to empower him to
save Mary from falling into the state of original sin.  Christ is more dynamic than
what he is presently made out to be.  He only looks like a buffoon when buffoons                             talk about him.  People equate him with the buffoons who talk about him.

4]  The idea of Original Sin sounds too judgmental.  How could 
      a mere child who didn't do anything start out in original sin?

Response:  No child is guilty of committing the original sin, being that no child is
the original Adam.  Rather, being conceived in the state of original sin consists in
being conceived in the same state that Adam found himself, the moment after he
committed the original sin.

This state of original sin brings with it obscured reason, as well as senses that can
get out of control.  This is why we must apply ourselves to learning and why we al-
so need to do some type of good in life, such as occasional fasting, abstention, works
of mercy, prayer, and  those bodily workouts formerly known as mortifications.  Af-
ter all, we are not born with infused knowledge and we no longer possess the endow-
ment of integrity.   The first objective is to conquer your cravings.

The other effect of original sin that can lead to tragedy and abuse is interdependence.
Those who take advantage of the dependence of others rocket into Hell like lightning,
if they die before converting.  Forcing women to partake in prostitution is a sin worse
than the acts of prostitution themselves. 

5]  What gave Christ the power to assume 
      Mary into Heaven body and soul?

Response:  The Ten Commandments did.  It is written, "Honor your mother and 
father."   If Jesus didn't take his own mom into Heaven body and soul, he would
have sinned against his own commandment.  This was expressly mentioned in the
Infallible Statement, titled, Munificentissimus Deus, published in 1950.

6]  The Bible states that there is but one Mediator between God 
      and Man.   That would exclude everyone else, including Mary.

Response:  No one devoted to Mary ever said that she was the savior of mankind.
This is where one needs to have a minimal understanding of Latin.  Co-redemptrix
means, "With the Redeemer."  Mary called God her savior during the Visitation she
made to her cousin Elizabeth.   That same biblical passage stated that all generations
will call her blessed.   People devoted to the Virgin Mary, by their devotion, call her
blessed, thereby fulfilling the prophecy about her in the Bible.   If you do not call her
blessed, then you are the one who is anti-Biblical.  After all, it is written, "All gener-
ations will call me blessed, because he who is mighty has done great things 
for me and holy is his name."   "His name," incidentally, means "his person."

Christ is the Mediator for the forgiveness of sin.  Mary is the dispenser of graces,
because of Jesus' priestly sacrifice.  Such a job resulted in her being called, Mary,
the Mediatrix of All Graces.

There is a reason why Mary must be the Mediatrix of the graces which, incidental-
ly, come from her spouse, the Holy Spirit.  It pertains to the the Last Supper.   The
Last Supper was the first Mass, where Jesus gave to mankind the last commandment
that he will ever give.   This occurred when he said, "Love  one another as I have
loved you."  Mary is the master link in that chain of loving one another as Christ has
loved us.   After all, she was personally in direct view of Divine Love longer than
anyone in the history of mankind.   Therefore, she has more experience at interacting
with it.

In the mystery of love, Mary transformed into the Holy Spirit.  I can assure you, ev-
en if you are the most Bible-reading person on earth, Mary knows mysteries that you
do not.  So, why not go to the source of the mysteries that pertain to the salvation of
mankind?  The Virgin Mary knows what it means to be saved more than anyone in
existence.  More mercy was bestowed upon the Virgin Mary, in keeping her free
from sin, than was bestowed upon every converted prostitute combined.

It's written, "Eye has not seen and ear has not heard, nor has it entered the hu-
man heart as to what God has prepared for those who love him ..."  1 Cor., 2:9. 
Also written is, "Beloved,  we are God's children now.  What we shall be has 
not yet been  revealed.   We do  know that, when it is revealed, we shall be like
him, being that we shall see him as he is.This means that the mysteries of God
are far too deeply recessed and awe-striking for them to be reduced to the basal
mentality of those too cowardly to aspire the to depths and heights where one ex-
pects to find the angels stationed.   The express route to the angels is the Rosary,
of course.  The principle prayer of the Rosary are the words of God the Father
spoken by Gabriel.  It is known as the Angelic Salutation ... the Hail Mary.

People who hate the Virgin Mary do so, because they think that they have an aver-
sion to what they perceive to be gymnastics training and harsh disciplinary oppres-
sion.   Yet, those who have an affinity to her see her as a beautiful starlit night.  Her
devotees become attracted to her beauty and inviting friendliness, if they don't do
so, in the quest for solace in tragedy.  They are devoted to her because they want to
be near her.   She then takes over and starts the trimming, pruning, and overhauling
process.   After the chiseling, one ends up perceiving the Holy Spirit for what he ac-
tually is; Kindness itself.  Concerning Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,

of Montfort,  Pius XII,  &  St. Bonaventure.
Those who appreciate beauty become the
beauty they appreciate.  In a similar fashion,
the mystery of love is that of transforming
into the object of your love.  This includes
transforming into evil, if this happens to be
the object of your love.

The Virgin Mary once appeared to Saint Dominic after he failed to convert the
Albigensians, despite his athletic effort to do so.  She told him that he was try-
ing to cultivate a harvest where no rain had fallen. She then told him that the
Angelic Psalter (today's Rosary) was the way to convert souls.

The modus operandi of the Virgin Mary is to first send rain, in gentle drops.
Her next mode of action is dependent upon the way the people involved re-
spond to her gentleness.  The following are elements of the Faith of Peter,
written like a penny catechism.  That's to say, they're rain drops of the Faith.
After all, kindness and truth are a package deal, as was first stated in the Book
of the Prophet Isaiah.  The Holy Spirit is Kindness in essence.  The Holy Spirit
revealed truth.  He always proceeds in gentleness.  The Virgin Mary brings the

One more point to make here:

   Theology = Faith seeking reason, as to why a doctrine was declared as it was.

1. Mysticism.   To start, what is mysticism?   ANS:  Mysticism is contact with God.
This is an official church definition and not a personal opinion.  My personal opinion
is that mysticism is the act of delving into the infinite and supernatural, while simul-
taneously abandoning the finite and animalistic.  This comprises detaching oneself
from utterly worthless vanities such as "self esteem."  My alternate definition of
mysticism is transformation.  Transformation was a theme of Saint Catherine of
Siena, incidentally.  She's a doctor of the church.

2.  God.   How is God correctly defined, aside of  the only being in all of existence
who never had a beginning?   ANS:  In status, God is the Unmoved Mover and the
Catalyst that never was catalyzed.  In essence, God is the infinite perfection of ev-
ery virtue in existence simultaneously occurring in the same one being. 

2b.  It is not merely that God loves, communicates in truth, grants mercy, and stays
faithful.   Rather, God is charity & mercy itself, as well as kindness & truth,  justice
& peace,  fairness & generosity,  patience & temperance, fortitude & heroism, grat-
itude & fidelity, prudence & innocence, etc.

2b.  God being the Unmoved Mover means that existence is no chance occurrence.
You realize this when you follow the trail of cause and effect.   At the end of every
trail is the discovery that everything traces itself to an Unmoved Mover, as well as
an Uncatalyzed Catalyst.   Either someone or a plurality of someones brought into
existence all that came to be.   Even if you are an unwavering adherent to the Big
Bang Theory, you have to admit that no one has ever been able to explain how the
unfathomably dense initial atom, with its billions of galaxies locked inside of it,
came into existence.

2c.  God is transcendent, being untouchable by all that is seen and unseen.  Yet, the
same God is immanent, in being fully involved in all that is.  In fact, God is more
real in any one of us than any one of us is real in ourselves.   God is so intimately
involved in any one person that there's a recessed area in each human soul reserved
solely for God.  Not even angels are capable of reaching it.

2d.   The spiritually fatal error in modern physicists' search for the God Genome or
the God Particle, in order for it to officially recognize the existence of God, consists
in the reality that God is Spirit and Truth.   Physicists are looking for an infinite spir-
it in the world of the finite physical.

3.   Humanity's Existence.   The aforementioned statements make one conclude
that God is the executive producer of man's existence, no matter how the same one
God arranged for that existence to come into being.   In light of this, what was God's
ultimate goal in creating humanity?   ANS:  God created mankind, in order to unite
with his creation, by becoming man.  In sequence, God's purpose for sharing in man's
humanity was so that man could share in God's divinity.  This is mentioned in the Li-
turgical prayer in the Canon of the Mass.

3b.  This is where the mystery of love is activated.  Firstly, the Mystery of Love that
of transforming into the object of your love.  In this mystery, God so loved mankind
that God became man.   Love is transformational.

3c.  The phenomenon of God uniting with God's creation translates into the concept
of Messiah.   Now, Messiah means Anointed One.  It is synonymous with the title,
Christ.    The phenomenon of the Anointed One consists in humanity being anointed
by the divinity of God in the same one person.   The Anointed One, therefore, has to
be God or else the union of divinity and humanity can't occur.   This is where recog-
nition of the existence of the Son of God comes to the fore.   The Son of God is the
only one in existence who can become man and then activate the anointing of divin-
ity upon humanity.   The union of the divine with the human is the Hypostatic Union.

3d.  Without the existence of the Son of God, the existence of an entire God is com-
pletely impossible.   Moreover, in order for God to exist as an eternal, all-powerful,
and life-giving being, such a God can only exist as a Trinity.   This means that God
is not a him or a her.   Rather, God is a "them" who is only properly described in the
third person plural of "they" when describing the actions of God.

3e. God is a spiration from one infinite person that is requited by a second infinite
person.  The spiration of all which is infinitely virtuous is the third infinite person. 
In fact, the second infinite person is the Raison d'Etre of the first infinite person,
and the spiration itself is the third infinite person of this united Divine Essence.

3e1. A person who has no beginning sends forth a spiration that says,  "Let there
be light."   A second person who also has no beginning responds by stating, "So
be it.   Let there be light."  A third person as infinite as the other two is the light
itself.  This means that God is a 1} spiration sending forth all that is virtue, 2} a
requitement of that spiration in consenting to all that is virtue, 3} a living light that
is the infinite virtue, itself.   God is a crossfire of love, with the third person being
the fire which is being eternally exchanged between the first and second person of
the endlessly united being.

3f.  Some people claim that there is no God, because there has never been any quan-
titative measurement of God found to exist.   The answer to this is that, if you could
measure God, then it wouldn't be God whom you're measuring.   This is because the
Eternal God is transcendent and incomparable.   Secondly, quantitative measurement
denotes physical structure.   God doesn't have a molecular structure to put under an
electron microscope.   God is in all things only in that God is involved in all things. 
In essence, God is Spirit and Truth

4.  There is a difference between being blessed and being anointed.   In light of this,
it is written, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of God." 
What does it mean to be poor?    ANS:  To be poor means to be constantly de-
pendent upon God.

4b.  It is also written, "Blessed are the meek."    What does it mean to be meek? 
ANS:  To be meek means to be able to take a hit without hitting back.   Meek-
ness is an element of temperance.

5. Beauty.    What is beauty?    ANS:  Beauty is Harmony & Proportion.  The
source to this statement is Saint Francis de Sales.  In addition, beauty is not limited
to the face, the physique, a sunset, or a starlit night.  That is to say, it's not limited to
the physical world.

5b. For example, you can engage in beautiful speech, where the subject matter is in
harmonious context, with all subsets of the subject matter getting proportionate at-
tention.   You can also have a beautiful relationship, consisting in harmony between
each person involved, as well as proportionate interaction between the same.  In se-
quence, a beautiful relationship is one where the rapport between the people in the
relationship is not lopsided.

5b1.  Beauty exists as a reality, and not as a matter of personal preference.  Now,
what one person might find attractive is not always something beautiful.  There's
a difference between attraction and beauty.   Being that God exists in proportion-
ate harmony between three divine persons, God is Beauty itself. 

6.  Evil.   What is evil?  ANS:  Evil is the lack of a good which ought to be present
but is absent.  Evil is deprivation.

6b. Can there be a God when so much evil has been allowed to perpetuate through-
out the centuries?   ANS:  The answer is Yes.  God did not will the evil to transpire.
The Divine Essence did not give permission for it to happen.  That's why there is
something known as sin.  Plus, the existence of evil in the world cannot negate the
existence of God.  In fact, there is evil done in the name of a God whose image
was distorted by those doing the evil.

Evils on earth perpetuate, only because few people on earth seek to stop them from
happening.  It is NOT God letting the evil happen.  It's mankind.  The answer is that
evil is prevailing throughout the earth because either you, in your cowardice, let it
happen or others in their cowardice won't help you stop any evil you trying to stop.
In the alternate, those in power are so self-centered and inconsiderate that they let
evil perpetuate.  Yet, the self-centered mind set is the mindset of a coward.  The
gutless cowardice of men is what lets evil prevail on earth.  It's known as the sin
of cooperation.

Sin is the act of spiritual suicide.   It's the act of turning away from God.  It consists
in jumping off the bridge which is God.  More specifically, sin is the act of seeking
to negate your existence, even though you were created to exist for ever.   In fact, sin
is the act of  becoming nothingness itself.  Whereas God is Love, a obstinate sinner
in the state of mortal sin is Nothingness.  Mention of the nothingness of sin appears
in the Dialogues of St. Catherine of Siena.  The text includes private revelations con-
veyed to Catherine.

6b. Why does God stand by, letting evil occur, instead of stopping it by supernatural
intervention?  ANS:  It is allowed, in order to bring forth a greater state of good than
that which would have existed if the evil in question never occurred.  God stands by,
while evil completes its destruction, so that God can construct a greater good than
was previously there.

6c.  It's also a matter of the pruning effect.   The pruning of tree branches results in
the vibrant growth of the tree being pruned.   God allows evil, so that the pruning of
the soul can occur.

6d.  This principle is illustrated in the discipline of weight lifting.   Lifting weights
results in muscle actually being torn down.  A day of rest follows the workout, there-
by enabling the body to rebuild.   Thus, the weight lifting routine in itself does not
build the body, but rather the days of recuperation, after each workout, do.  In like
fashion, evils in themselves don't benefit anyone.   Rather, its the rebuilding that oc-
curs after the damage has been done which brings forth the greater state of good.

7.  Sinners.   What is a sinner?   ANS:  A sinner is a person who loves evil and
then becomes in essence the evil loved.  Evil, too, is part of the transformational
mystery of love.   After all, there is such a thing as the Mystery of Evil.  It's some-
thing that has been ongoing throughout the history of mankind  ....  throughout the
tragic history of mankind.  It was Saint Bernadette Soubirous said that a sinner is
a person who loves evil.   She was the Lourdes apparition girl of 1858.  She is
the patron saint of asthmatics.

8. Worship.   What actually is worship?   ANS:  Worship is the act of attributing
the beginning and end of your existence to someone or something.

9.  Innocence.   Does Innocence mean naivety?   Does it denote docility?   Does
it mean to be meek?   Does it mean to be uninvolved?   ANS:  The answer is no,
in all four instances.   Innocence is freedom from sin  ...  freedom from spiritual

9b.  Spiritual death is the absence of the sanctifying grace which should be flow-
ing through the soul of the person in mortal sin.   However, everyone is being giv-
en actual graces, in order for that person to be able to do good and even be spared
from evil consequences.   Actual graces are given, in order to enable the person to
either return to the state of sanctifying grace or remain in that state.  The opposite
of actual graces is temptation.

9c.  The Grace of God is the only thing which enables a person to do good.  In fact,
prayer is an essential element in preventing the absence of needed graces.  In addi-
tion, the true Sister Lucia Martos of Fatima fame, stated that a person can learn more
from prayer than through reading volumes of books, during her pre-1957 days.   

Saint Augustine stated that prayer rules God.  Thus, instead of going to fortune tell-                                 ers, to see what your future holds, pray for your desired future to become a reality ... 

... if what you desire isn't sinful.  Prayer is the opposite of Calvinism, Determinism,                                      and even Fatalism.

Ukranian Rite Church: The same faith as Roman Catholicism.

10.  Prayer.   What is prayer?   ANS:  Prayer is the act of reaching out to God.  An
attraction to the celestial world results in the instinct to pray.  When in doubt on how
to pray, overlook your doubt and just start praying.  You'll catch on, as to the way
prayer becomes effective.

11. Faith.   It is written that faith without good works is dead faith.   Quite frankly,
faith without good works is a sick joke and the ultimate hypocrisy.   What is faith?    
ANS:  Faith is the understanding of an infinite God that we, in our finite minds, can
not understand in any other way.    Faith is spiritual radar.   Faith is the translation
machine.   Faith is a supernatural gift that involves deeply recessed instinct.  It isn't
a matter of prejudice or opinion.  It's a matter of identification.

12.  Doctrine.   Why is it a matter of life and death for you to adhere to the correct
doctrine?    ANS:  This is because a person only acts according to his beliefs.  If
you believe wrongly, then you will act wrongly.   The atrocities of Nazi Germany
were entirely based on false beliefs.   If you don't get the doctrine right, your entire
world will go wrong.   You will then become a destroying angel, and later on, you
will go about, getting others to be accomplices to your living lies ...  should you
adhere to the wrong doctrine.


... so that the power of angels can bridge into the lives of men.

St. Louis of Montfort once made the observation that the Arch-
angel Gabriel was the first person to make reparation to the Im-
maculate Heart of Mary.  He did this when he said, "Hail, full 
of grace.  The Lord is with you.  ... Rejoice oh highly favored  
daughter."  Technically, he said, "Rejoice, graced one."  None
the less, he willingly did what Lucifer refused to ever do.  

~ ~ ~ 

Before time began, the Trinity revealed to the angelic world that there would
be a second creation with its apex being mankind.  It was simultaneously re-
vealed that the Holy Trinity would unite with all of his creation by becoming
man, doing so through the second person of the same Trinity.  This outraged
instantly outraged the narcissistic Lucifer who wanted God to become angel.

This instantly resulted in Lucifer harboring seething envy for the woman de-
stined to become the Mother of God.  At the same time, this same revelation
inspired and infatuated the Archangel Michael.

According to St Ignatius of Antioch (2nd Century martyr), God's Will was re-
vealed to the angels at the beginning of their creation, as a test of each one's
fidelity or absence thereof.  Upon the revelation, Lucifer became envious and
full of rage, refusing to say, "Hail" to the woman destined to become the Moth-
er of God-made-man.  Centuries later, Gabriel made an act of reparation for
Lucifer's absence of respect for Mary, doing so during the Annunciation.

When we make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we have placed
upon us the power of Saint Gabriel & the Archangels.  The angels of lesser
power then interact with us, doing by acting upon our senses.  This affects
our perceptions.

The Heart of the Fatima Message

Fatima began with the interaction with a single, solitary angel who announced
himself as the Angel of Peace in one instance and then the Guardian Angel of
Portugal in another one.

The Fatima Message highlights the necessity of making reparation to Mary's
Immaculate Heart of Mary.  If you don't understand the reason for making
this type of reparation, then all conversations about Fatima are pointless.
Therefore, what's the point in making reparation to the Immaculate Heart
of Mary?

ANS:           One makes reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
                  so that the power of angels can bridge into the lives of men.

In order to understand, see:  Before the Beginning of Time:  Why a Third of the 
Angels Rebelled and Became Demons (Pursuant to the teachings of First Century 
saint, Ignatius of Antioch, and 18th Century Dominican priest, Louis of Montfort)

an enemy of the State.

Meanwhile, America and Russia once again have strained relations with each other.
Workers in Bangladesh met a destiny of flames.  Southerner in the United States

Add to today's equation the eight estrogenated chemicals in water supplies, as well

Crisis, the American law mandating employers of conscience to provide things against
their conscience to employees, under penalty of law.  Ladies and gentlemen, we simul-
taneously live in Babylon and Nazi Germany, as well as Robber Baron American, an
Orwellian garrison state, and New Sodom.  This equation results in the following as-

We live under the influence of the invisible Prince of Darkness, in a world where
greed-obsessed misers and narcissistic egomaniacs take turns controlling the out-
comes of human interaction.  T
he power of demons has already bridged itself into the lives of men in this era.  
These demons are the kings of the hill, though they come from the molten pits.  
They're the kings of most people's minds and kings of their senses.  They're the 
most influential beings on the face of the Earth.  Yet, those influenced by them, 
more often than not, aren't even aware of their solely spiritual existences.

These angels of eternal death hate humanity with a seething passion.  Yet, people
act as if their promptings were humanity's raison d'etre.  These spiritual beasts
would destroy all of humanity instantaneously, if they ever had the power to do
so.  This is the goal they have been working to achieve.  Yet, they only have the
power that humanity has thus far given them.  Thus, it's an element of insanity
for anyone to kowtow to these demons, all the while empowering them.
Live the Mystery.  If you demand a detailed scientific
explanation, then you are basically that someone put an
ocean into a sand bucket and deliver it to you on your terms.

Q:  How does a person make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? 

ANS:  1} By offering your suffering and sacrifices in the fashion in
                  which Our Lady instructed the three Children of Fatima,
           2} and by the First Saturday Communions of Reparation.

1} Our Lady said that, whenever you endure suffering or make a sacrifice, pray: 

            "It is for the love of you my Jesus, in reparation for the outrages 
                      committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
                               and for the conversion of poor sinners."

     You may replace the phrase, for the love of you, with in charity of you or even
      in agape (awe-gah-pay) of you.   Agape is the Greek word for Divine love.  If
      you make this offering of reparation while enduring a physical suffering, you
      might literally feel as if a vice grip is loosening.   There is something liberating
      about making this type of offering  ---  especially to the angels. 

2}  On December 10, 1925,  Our Lady and the Child Jesus appeared to Sister Lucia,
      at a convent in Pontevedra, Spain.  At the time, Lucia was the only living Fatima
      seer.  Francisco and Jacinta died very young, exactly as Our Lady prophesied.
      During the vision, the Child Jesus said:

      Have compassion on the heart of your most holy Mother, covered with 
      thorns by which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment.  Yet, there is
      no one to be found who made reparation.

      Our Lady then interjected the following:

   Look, my daughter, at my heart, surrounded with the thorns through which 
   ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingrati-
   tude.  You at least try to console me and announce for me that I promise to 
   be present at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, for
   all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall con-
   fess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep 
   me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on fifteen mysteries of
   the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me. 
The reason for five Saturdays is to make reparation for the five principle ways 
in which mankind commits Blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

The Five Types of Blasphemy against the Immaculate Heart of Mary

There are five principle ways in which a person can blaspheme the Immaculate
Heart of Mary and therefore the Will of God.   Firstly, the Immaculate Heart of
Mary is symbolic of Mary's love.   In as much, blasphemy against her love blocks
it out of the lives of men and women.   Thirdly, the angels which magnetize to her
presence are left out of our lives, in that we become too insensitive to sense their
promptings.   In light of this, know that the five types of blasphemy go as follows:

1 -  Denial of her Immaculate Conception.   The Immaculate Conception is
not to be confused with the Virginal Conception.   The Virginal Conception was
prophesied in the Book of Isaiah and deals with Christmas time.   The Immaculate
Conception is the reality that Mary was preserved from Original Sin at the first
moment of her conception, due to the foreseen merits of Christ.   To state that
God didn't redeem Mary at the first moment of her life and then preserved her
in sinlessness is blasphemy against God's power.

2 -  Denial of her perpetual virginity.   For the record, in the Law of Moses,
if a woman vowed her virginity, became betrothed, and then let her man know
that she vowed her virginity, the man was bound to honor that vow.   However,
if the woman kept knowledge of her vow a secret, she would then be free of her
vow.   Mary was titled, virgin, in the scriptures.   Therefore, the public nature of
her vow gave it the status of a vocation.  It was her office.  It was her rank.  She
showed that she affirmed her vow of virginity.  Therefore, Joseph was required to
honor her vow.   Mary was perpetually virgin.   So too were other people in life.
Therefore, Mary's perpetual virginity not something incomprehensible.  It was
done before Mary was born and it was done centuries after she was taken into

3 -  Denial of her Divine Maternity.   Mary is the mother of Jesus.   Jesus
is God.   Therefore, Mary is the Mother of God;  the mother of God made man.
This is a matter of simple logic.   Moreover, the Virgin Mary is the mother of
everything that Jesus is.   Jesus is Mercy.   So, Mary is the Mother of  Mercy.

4 -  Inciting in children indifference and contempt toward Mary.   How-
ever, the same people will instill in these children the belief in Santa Claus and
reindeer.   Without Mary there would be no Christ.   Without her there would
be no Christmas.   Her blood flowed in Jesus' vessels.   The blood of Christ
came from the blood of Mary.

5 -  Committing sacrilege upon Mary's images.    Satan's tempting of people
to sacrilege Mary's images is the closest he will get to raping and murdering her.
You have to realize his seething hatred for her.   You will then realize his seething
hatred for you.   Think about what incites certain people to display a decrepit and
ornery scorn for Mary, as well as what instills in some a sense of delight in com-
mitting sacrilege against her.   To say the least, it's a war cry against God. 

Explanations for those who are Incredulous   (For those who don't believe)

When the archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary, he greeted her in a way no angel ev-
er greeted any human in history.  When he did this, he made reparation for the sin
of Lucifer and all the angels who fell from grace.  Lucifer's deadliest sin, of course,
was envy.  It was so deadly that "through the envy of the Devil, death came into the 
world."  He was furious over the fact that God would become man instead of angel.
He was especially filled with hatred toward the woman destined to be the Mother of
the second person of the Holy Trinity and the mystic spouse of the third person of
that same Trinity.

     Secondly, who was the most devoted man to the Virgin Mary in world history?
     ANS: Saint Joseph.   He is the key in the Battle between Heaven and Hell oc-
     curring in a church that was being deformed into completely unrecognizable
     state.  Incidentally, for those of you who are obsessively anti-Catholic, Saint
     Joseph is on the side of Heaven, being that he is in Heaven. 

                    The History of Salvation in Instantaneous Review

Love is eternal.  In fact, the love you have within goes with you into eternity, be it the
love of good or the love of evil.  Now, the mystery of love is that of transforming into
the object of your love.  God's love for mankind was such that he willed to transform
into man.  In his will was the unchanging choice that Mary was destined to come into
existence and become the ark of this transformation.

Lucifer was filled with envy over the destiny of Mary.  This is why Lucifer and his rebel
angels refused to serve the Will of God.  Time began.  Mankind fell.  Centuries passed.
Then came Mary.  Next came the Archangel Garbriel, to Nazareth, informing Mary that
she would be the mother of the long-awaited Messiah.

In the modern world, everyday is Opposite Day.  We're a world of legalized murder,
where killing the defenseless is regarded as a constitutional right in some places and a
religious duty in other ones.  We live in a world of legalized adultery, sexual anarchy,
religious hypocrisy, the desecration of things consecrated, the desecration of persons
innocent, occult practices, slave labor profiteering, mass media defamation, price goug-
ing, weapons of indiscriminate destruction, movies that rape the mind, radio talk shows
that market fear, attacks against ecology, sleight of hand politics, college loan debt, for-
closures, financially costly wars, astronomical national debts, a rise in the rate of certain
diseases, economic bankruptcies, emotional bankruptcies, pain, grief, loss, vengeance
sworn, and power plays by the most air headed and inarticulate of politicians.

There are also the human activities which are designed to fly under the radar, such as
drug cartel operations, other facets of organized crime, and money laundering.  In as
much, humanity is one continuous disconnect.   Humanity is self-destructing.  Now,
there is only one way to make all this end.   It consists in doing the reverse of what
made this chaos emerge.  First came the chasm in Christianity, thanks to Henry VIII
and the politically-back Martin Luther.  Later came the damage to the Immaculate
Heart of Mary.   Then came mankind's blocking of itself from the power of angels.
This guaranteed that human consciences would become distorted in the most dead-
ly of ways.   This resulted in human senses becoming distorted in predatory ways.
Paranoiac political views ensued.

Without reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Reign of Satan will stay on
course.   If you reflect on the World War of the Angels that transpired before time be-
gan, you will realize how this is so.   As far as concerns mankind in all of the strife
between men, it's written that, "... our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but 
against the Principalities and the Powers;  against the world-rulers of this dark-
ness, against the spiritual forces of  wickedness on  high."

In the world of Catholic devotion, there is the understanding that, at Fatima, the Vir-
gin Mary prophesied that her Immaculate Heart would triumph on Earth, followed
by a period of world peace.  The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is recog-
nized as the catalyst which will end the Reign of Satan.  It will then usher-in a period
symbolically referred to as the Reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Now, the Sacred
Heart of Jesus is symbolic of Christ's love/charity for fallen man.  Without the need-
ed reparation and the needed Fatima consecration, Hell will continue to spill out its
toxicity throughout the Earth.  In sequence, multitudes of humanity will spill into
Hell and become hideously distorted forever.
