Go and see for yourselves.
The smoke of Satan inside the Church.

Queen 'appalled' at Church of England moves, claim Vatican moles

When Pope Benedict visits this country next year, he is expected to stay at Buckingham Palace as a guest of the Queen. The warmth of her welcome will come as no surprise to the Pontiff, if senior sources at the Vatican are to be believed.

By Richard Eden Published: 10:56PM BST 03 Oct 2009


According to informants quoted in The Catholic Herald, the Queen has "grown increasingly sympathetic" to the Catholic Church over the years while being "appalled", along with the Prince of Wales, at developments in the Church of England.
The usually well-informed newspaper adds that the Queen, who is the Supreme Governor of the C of E, is "also said to have an affinity with the Holy Father, who is of her generation".

Some don't like Anglicans inside the Catholic Church

This from a good source in Rome: apparently both Lambeth Palace and elements in the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity were “implacably opposed” to Pope Benedict XVI’s dramatic new arrangements for Anglicans.

At http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/damianthompson/100014263/lambeth-palace-implacably-opposed-to-popes-anglican-plans/

Looks like that, to some people inside the Catholic Roman Church, the good thing is protestants staying far from Rome. When the Pope and the Vatican work for the reunification, they become very upset.

On Anglicans and the Church of Rome

New era begins as Benedict throws open gates of Rome to disaffected Anglicans

By
Damian Thompson Religion Last updated: October 20th, 2009

The Pope is offering Anglicans worldwide 'corporate reunion' (Photo: AFP)
This is astonishing news. Pope Benedict XVI has created an entirely new Church structure for disaffected Anglicans that will allow them to worship together – using elements of Anglican liturgy – under the pastoral supervision of their own specially appointed bishop or senior priest.

Sioux City Bishop Calls for "Exorcism" of "Spirit of Vatican II"

Says emphasis on "engagement with the world" has "wreaked havoc on the Church"
By Kathleen Gilbert

SIOUX CITY, Iowa, October 16, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) -
Catholics must learn to "exorcise" the so-called "spirit of Vatican II" to end the secularization that has "wreaked havoc" on the Church since the Council, says Bishop R. Walker Nickless of Sioux City, Iowa.

In a pastoral letter issued Thursday to the lay and religious of his diocese, Nickless wrote that he has "no other desire" than to see the reforms of Vatican II implemented properly. However, he said, "It is crucial that we all grasp that the hermeneutic or interpretation of discontinuity or rupture, which many think is the settled and even official position, is not the true meaning of the Council."

SEERS HAD SAID THAT EVENTS WOULD UNFOLD AFTER FAITH IN APPARITIONS DISAPPEARED

FOR YOUR DISCERNMENT: SEERS HAD SAID THAT EVENTS WOULD UNFOLD AFTER FAITH IN APPARITIONS DISAPPEARED


Years ago, it was reported that Vicka Ivankovic, the most prominent seer at the famed apparition site of Medjugorje, had stated that the purported secrets there would begin when all belief in the apparitions seemed to be almost extinguished.


It is an intriguing possibility -- especially in a climate of ecclesiastic intellectualism (and skepticism).

Another alleged Croatian seer, Jim Singer, who now lives near Burlington, Toronto, said years ago that on September 23, 1995, "Our Blessed Mother stated (among other things) that the time is rapidly approaching when God's children will turn their backs on Medjugorje. The gift of Medjugorje will suffer tremendously and will reach the point when it will appear to be extinguished permanently. Many will rejoice and become cynical. Only the steadfast few will remain faithful and loyal few will remain faithful and loyal.... but at a great personal cost, humiliation, and ridicule. Indeed, the pressure will be so great that even the loyal souls will endure periods of serious doubt. However, just when it would seem that this gift is finally dead, Jesus Himself will raise it like the phoenix from the ashes.... And that is when the TRUE understanding of the gifts, and the prophecy of Medjugorje, will begin... but, for many it will be too late."

On capitalism and the teachings of the Church

Moore's fury is straight out of Pope Leo XIII's 1891 encyclical, Rerum Novarum, which deplored the way a large mass of people were kept in conditions "little better than slavery itself" by a minority of wealthy capitalists. Pope Leo laid out the solutions: just wages (based on the need of the worker, not the lowest the market could bear), the duty of the state to intervene to correct abuses, the spread of private property to the propertyless, and the right to form trade unions and negotiate decent wages. Rerum Novarum was heavily influenced by the speeches of a British cardinal, Edward Manning, who declared that "if the hours of labour have no other object but the gain of the employer, no working man can live a life worthy of a dignified human being".

What the popes, like Moore, have deplored is the belief that market forces should be left to themselves – an idea, of course, promoted by those who have most benefitted from lack of regulation. Pope Pius XI in
Quadragesimo Anno – written in 1931, in the wake of the Wall St crash – deplores the belief that "the free play of rugged competition" could in some way lead to the proper ordering of the economy: "from this source as from a polluted spring have proceeded all the errors of the 'individualist' school", he warned. More recently, Pope John Paul II in 1991 deplored a "radical capitalistic ideology" which is fails to consider the impact of marginalisation and exploitation, and which "blindly entrusts their solution to the free development of market forces".

New York Times Applauded for Showing Pictures of Babies Killed in Abortions

New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- The New York Times is well-known for its pro-abortion bias, but the Gray Lady is drawing praise from pro-life advocates after a news story and an online pictorial that includes pictures showing babies who are victims of abortions. One prominent pro-life advocate says she believes the Times is the first major mainstream media outlet to show them.

New age and Oprah

The organiser of a US spiritual retreat, James Arthur Ray, was caught deleting incriminating tweets he published during an event in which two people died and another 19 had to be admitted to hospital.
Authorities are trying to determine if criminal negligence played a role in the deaths, which occurred in a sauna like sweat lodge, adapted from Native American culture, at a resort in Arizona during a two hour "spiritual cleansing ceremony" last Thursday evening, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
Ray, the "Spiritual Warrior" retreat organiser, is an author who holds seminars on wealth creation and was interviewed in the 2006 film The Secret. He has appeared as a guest on shows including Oprah and Larry King Live.

Pope to visit Rome synagogue in January

(AP) – 22 hours ago
VATICAN CITY — The Vatican says Pope Benedict XVI will visit Rome's main synagogue in January as part of Catholic-Jewish dialogue.
The announcement Tuesday gave no details of the Jan. 17 visit.
Benedict said last month he wanted to go to the synagogue to show his "personal nearness" and that of the entire church to the Jewish community.
Benedict's predecessor, John Paul II, made a groundbreaking visit to the synagogue near the Tiber River in 1986.
Benedict has visited Jewish houses of worship during pilgrimages to Cologne, in his native Germany, and to New York.

2012 forecast: Food riots, ghost malls, mob rule, terror

2012 forecast: Food riots, ghost malls, mob rule, terrorTrends chief says people should brace for 'the greatest depression'

Posted: October 10, 200912:15 am Eastern
By Bob Unruh
WorldNetDaily


A trends forecaster says the current economic "rebound" from last winter's Wall Street collapse of banks, insurance companies and automobile manufacturers is an artificial blip created by 'phantom money printed out of thin air backed by nothing."
And
Gerald Celente of TrendsResearch.com, says people right now should be bracing for "the greatest recession" which will hit worldwide and will mark the "decline of empire America." Crop failures could be among the minor concerns.
"Here we are in 2012. Food riots, tax protests, farmer rebellions, student revolts, squatter diggins, homeless uprisings, tent cities, ghost malls, general strikes, bossnappings, kidnappings, industrial saboteurs, gang warfare, mob rule, terror," he writes for a quarterly publication
that is available through subscription on his website.
He also talked about his forecasts with Greg Corombos of Radio America/WND in an interview that has been posted online.
The recent surge in Wall Street indexes back to near the 10,000 level, still far below the 14,000 prior to the crash, should be no reassurance for anyone, he said.

Miguel Diaz ambassador to Holy See

Read about this at American Papist.

Mirjana of Medjugorje and the secrets

It is Mirjana's confidential message from the Blessed Mother that will be announced in advance, and it is Mirjana who -- by some reckonings (no one could know for sure) -- possesses the most serious secrets, or at least as serious as any other seer in this place that has now tallied visits by forty million pilgrims, tens of thousands of priests, hundreds of bishops, and dozens of cardinals, among them observers from the Vatican (who continue to monitor events and have not yet ruled on Medjugorje; we will strictly adhere to any definitive such ruling).
Although Mirjana carefully avoids talk of any current events -- and links nothing in the news to her messages -- when asked about issues such as cloning, genetic manipulation, and problems with how humans are treating the Creation of God, she has indicated that such is connected "to the chaos around us."
It comes at a time when nature seems in turmoil -- from quakes in China to Midwest floods, a rare observation from a woman who in most cases strictly repeats only what Mary has told her and ventures precious few observations.
While referring to no event specifically, Mirjana -- when asked about her secrets -- has said in the past that "there will be events on the earth as warnings to the world" before a "visible sign" will be given to humanity -- followed by other secrets that include major chastisements.
"My witness will be an affirmation to the world of the authenticity of the apparitions at Medjugorje and a stimulus for the conversion of the world," she once explained -- indicating that the first secrets will convince people not necessarily because of a huge event, but because it will be announced -- publicly foreseen -- before it occurs.
Yet, she has added -- in other interviews, going back to the 1980s -- that it will be something "that people will hear about very far."

Scientists discover massive ring around Saturn

(CNN) -- Scientists at NASA have discovered a nearly invisible ring around Saturn -- one so large that it would take 1 billion Earths to fill it.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has spotted a massive, nearly invisible ring around Saturn.

The ring's orbit is tilted 27 degrees from the planet's main ring plane. The bulk of it starts about 3.7 million miles (6 million km) away from the planet and extends outward another 7.4 million miles (12 million km).
Its diameter is equivalent to 300 Saturns lined up side to side. And its entire volume can hold one billion Earths, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory said late Tuesday.
"This is one supersized ring," said Anne Verbiscer, an astronomer at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
Verbiscer and two others are authors of a paper about the discovery published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
The obvious question: Why did it take scientists so long to discover something so massive?
The ring is made up of ice and dust particles that are so far apart that "if you were to stand in the ring, you wouldn't even know it," Verbiscer said in a statement.
Also,
Saturn doesn't receive a lot of sunlight, and the rings don't reflect much visible light.
But the cool dust -- about 80 Kelvin (minus 316 degrees Fahrenheit) -- glows with thermal radiation. NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, used to spot the ring, picked up on the heat.

Exceptional Humans Did Not Evolve from Apes

Thursday, October 1, 2009, 2:04 PM
Wesley J. Smith


Human exceptionalism received a boost today with the news that human beings apparently did not evolve from apes.

From the story:

The skeleton of an early human who lived 4.4 million years ago shows that humans did not evolve from chimpanzee-like ancestors, researchers reported on Thursday. Instead, the missing link — the common ancestor of both humans and modern apes — was different from both, and apes have evolved just as much as humans have from that common ancestor, they said. The researchers stressed that “Ardi” may now be the oldest known hominid, but she was not the missing link. “At 4.4 million years ago we found something pretty close to it,” said Tim White of the University of California Berkeley, who helped lead the research team.

Here’s how the matter was put in another report about the story:

Researchers concluded that both the human branch and the ape branch of the family tree have evolved significantly from its common ancestor, and chimps can no longer be thought of as a “proxy” for that common ancestor.
I bring this up because some Darwinsists and other assorted materialists
have attacked human exceptionalism on the basis that our supposed emergence from the great apes and/or our genetic closeness means that we should not think of ourselves as distinctive. I never thought that was in the least persuasive. What matters is what we are now, not what might have been millions of years ago or how we got here. But this report concludes that our common ancestry–still undiscovered–is thrown even further back–with apparently no direct lineage of human beings arising from apes.
It looks like the anti-human exceptionalists will have to go back to the drawing board.

Queen 'appalled' at Church of England moves, claim Vatican moles

When Pope Benedict visits this country next year, he is expected to stay at Buckingham Palace as a guest of the Queen. The warmth of her welcome will come as no surprise to the Pontiff, if senior sources at the Vatican are to be believed.

According to informants quoted in The Catholic Herald, the Queen has "grown increasingly sympathetic" to the Catholic Church over the years while being "appalled", along with the Prince of Wales, at developments in the Church of England.
The usually well-informed newspaper adds that the Queen, who is the Supreme Governor of the C of E, is "also said to have an affinity with the Holy Father, who is of her generation".

In July, The Sunday Telegraph disclosed that the Queen had told the heads of a traditionalist group, formed in response to the liberal direction of some parts of the Anglican Communion, that she "understood their concerns" about the future of the 80 million-strong global church.
One leading evangelical said: "We found the letters very supportive."
Her intervention was predicted to have surprised many because the group, called the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, was feared by some to be a divisive force and one of its senior figures was this accused of being homophobic.
The then Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, called on homosexuals to repent. He said the Church of England must stick to the Biblical teaching that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
"We want to hold on to the traditional teaching of the Church," he said. "We don't want to be rolled over by culture and trends in the Church," said the bishop, who was one of the most senior religious figures in England.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman declines to comment.

The coming war with Iran

Real question is not if, but when.
By

War with Iran is now inevitable. The only question is: Will it happen sooner or later? Tehran's recent missile tests and war games suggest that the apocalyptic mullahs have reached the same conclusion.
Iran is on the march. Their medium-range Shahab-3 and Sajjil missiles can reach Israel, the entire Middle East and parts of Europe. Tehran is slowing expanding its regional sphere of influence. It has backed insurgency groups in Iraq, which have killed U.S. soldiers. It sponsors Hamas and Hezbollah. It has transformed Syria into a political vassal. It has forged an alliance with Hugo Chavez's Venezuela. It has purchased key air defense systems from Vladimir Putin's Russia.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a Holocaust-denier and virulent anti-Semite. He is a Persian Nazi strongman who vows to wipe Israel "off the map." He is a revolutionary Shi'ite. He believes the Jews must be extinguished in order to usher the coming of the Shi'ite Messiah, the so-called "Hidden Imam."

Pope to open Africa synod in Rome

By David Willey BBC News, Rome

The pope drew huge crowds during his visit to Angola in March
Pope Benedict is to open a three-week gathering of African bishops with a Mass in St Peter's Basilica in Rome.
The Synod on Africa is aimed at discussing the continent's social and economic problems.
The Catholic Church is growing faster in Africa than in any other part of the world, nearly trebling in size to 150 million followers over 30 years.
It will be the second synod of bishops organised at the Vatican to be devoted specifically to the problems of Africa.
The last one took place in 1994 at the very moment when the Rwandan genocide was beginning, but turned out to be little more than a talking shop.
This time Pope Benedict, who earlier this year visited two African countries, Cameroon and Angola, will sit in during three weeks of discussions among his African bishops on the social and economic problems of the continent.
