(Vatican Radio) As we mark the annual week of prayer for Christian Unity, Catholics have much to celebrate because 2016 was “truly an ecumenical year”. That’s the view of Cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, who accompanied Pope Francis on all his ecumenical journeys throughout the past year.
The cardinal was reflecting on the theme for this week of prayer which is centred on a verse from St Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians: ‘Reconciliation: the love of Christ compels us’. Members of the Council of Christian Churches in Germany were asked to prepare material on this theme which is set in the context of this year’s 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Continue reading
Pope Francis will bless the Philippines and its leader Rodrigo Duterte, an aide to the president said, in a gesture of goodwill to a controversial figure known for his lurid lambasting of priests and bishops.
“When I had the opportunity of kissing the hand of the Pope, I said, ‘Bless the Philippines, Your Holiness,’ and his answer was, ‘Yes, I will also bless your president,'” presidential adviser Jesus Dureza said in a video clip at St. Peter’s Square, shown on television Thursday.
Dureza is in Rome ahead of peace talks between the government and Philippine Maoist rebels. Continue reading
“The U.S. Supreme Court has been handed a bombshell: An appeal of a lower-court ruling that banned Christian counselors from talking with teens about the biblical standard for sexuality. …The law originated with homosexual interests who want the state to require licensed counselors to promote homosexuality but be banned from explaining its negative consequences. It began in the state’s schools, where a previous law allowed promotion of homosexuality but forbade educators from explaining the problems. “If the Supreme Court grants our petition for certiorari, this will be the most important freedom of religion case for this year and will impact the rights of counseling ministries across the country, potentially for generations to come,” said Brad Dacus, president of PJI. He said since the passing of SB 1172, which bars licensed counselors from assisting youth who want to change or reduce same-sex attractions, PJI has worked to defend counseling that takes place within church walls. The law also prohibits counseling that would steer youth away from gender confusion.” –Source
Surprised? You shouldn’t be. This was all planned by those in power decades ago. And if you’re a student of prophecy, you know it was predicted eons ago in your very own Bibles. The American people have been played like a fiddle and no one seems notice and most wouldn’t even care if you showed them. Everything from prayers being outlawed in schools by Roman Catholic president John F. Kennedy to all that Obama did the last eight years against Christians in the USA will now become a grab bag of political toys the Vatican controlled politicians can pull from to act as if they are undoing the damage of the wicked ones before them by creating all sorts of new supposedly pro-Christian laws which are nothing more than pavement for the man of sin to tread towards normalizing the amalgamation of Church & State just as their favored “saint” and ex-Nazi war crime criminal John Paul II commanded when he was alive. That way after a few years or maybe even months of one religious bill, newly enforced law or mere talking points in the well-oil media, the American people will be so used to the new religiosity of American politics so that when Sunday Laws are suggested to slow or even stop the now growing calamities, most in America won’t care in the slightest bit about such laws, even if they are religious. Especially after a few years of economic plenty thanks to the manufactured boon in the stock market has made their bottom line that much larger. And to think.. not only does Bible prophecy warn about all this, so did recent historical events and statements make it easy to see as the end result of complacency in the Christian churches.

“What I want to see from the Trump administration is a focus on God and the Constitution,” DeLay told WND. “It’s pretty simple. The implementation is very difficult, but what I want to see is a bold understanding that faith is the core of this country and the Constitution is the core of our government.” The former majority leader calls for a revolution that will transform the very core of America in his brand new book “Revival! Revolution! Rebirth!” He assures Americans he does not want a violent revolution but a spiritual one, similar to the First Great Awakening of the 1730s and 1740s.” –Source
What DeLay wants really doesn’t matter. Civil war is coming to the USA no matter what. And it will be violent. So as I’ve said many times before, it is a good time to get out of the cities. Still, his other points will come to fruition as he hopes. His “Revival, Revolution and Rebirth” will happen but only as the Vatican’s version of Christianity seasons it. No getting around that as prophecy will be fulfilled. For Trump or any politician in the Pope’s hip pocket to do anything other than a Roman Catholic version of Christianity would be political if not physical suicide. (need I mention JFK?) What we will soon see is as I stated before; the left will adopt a politically seasoned religious tone so as to promote “another Jesus” to all the people. Thing is, nearly no one in America will have a problem with it because every single Protestant faith in the USA is already in bed with Rome and this includes the Seventh Day Adventist church in a huge pile of well documented statements.

This weekend Pope Francis received Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the Vatican and formally inaugurated the new Embassy of the State of Palestine to the Holy See.
Abbas met with the pontiff at the Vatican for some 20 minutes on Saturday just before the opening of diplomatic offices on Via di Porta Angelica, just outside the Vatican City, in a building that also houses the embassies of Peru, Ecuador and Burkina Faso.
The new Palestinian embassy, said Abbas, “is a sign that the Pope loves the Palestinian people and peace.” The Vatican recognized the state of Palestine about a year and a half ago. Continue reading
Corporations should be encouraged to support gay rights as a means to further economic gain, attendees at the World Economic Forum in Davos will hear this week.
World leaders gather this week at the Swiss ski resort to discuss how to make globalism more inclusive in response to the rising tide of populism.
As part of that agenda Chief Operating Officer of the Thomson Reuters Foundation Antonio Zappulla has suggested private and public sector leaders be encouraged to be more “inclusive” of LGBT staff.
Singling out organisations who have been leading on that agenda for praise, Zappulla cited the British intelligence agency, MI5, as an example of the “progress” made over the last decade. Continue reading
Major players in the ongoing battle over religious freedom and LGBT rights will meet at Yale University this weekend to discuss conscience rights, LGBT protections and legislation needed to balance those competing interests.
Faith leaders and LGBT activists attending the event aren’t the only ones in search of consensus since the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage a year and a half ago.
The meeting is a response to in-fighting within the community of scholars, lawyers and policymakers who once worked together as religious freedom advocates.
“We all think … the view that nondiscrimination protections must crowd out every other value is wrong, but we have different visions of the right,” said Robin Fretwell Wilson, director of the family law and policy program at the University of Illinois College of Law and one of the meeting’s organizers.

“The Vatican has invited the undisputed father of the modern, pro-abortion population control movement to present a paper at an upcoming Vatican-run conference. Dr. Paul Ehrlich, author of the 1968 bestseller The Population Bomb is scheduled to speak in Vatican City during the February 27-March 1 conference that will discuss “how to save the natural world.” The Stanford biologist champions sex-selective abortion as well as mass forced sterilization as legitimate methods to curb population growth. In his 1968 book, Ehrlich went so far as to defend forced abortion, writing: “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”..Organizers of the Vatican-run conference predict that if effective steps are not taken to reverse so-called man-made “global climate change,” then up to 40 percent of “all biodiversity on Earth” will be destroyed “by the end of this century,” including a “majority” of species of plants. …With the invitation of Ehrlich to address the conference, how the Pontifical Academies understand “social justice” takes on a sinister aspect.” –Source
Sinister indeed! But then this is the Roman Catholic church that killed hundreds of millions during their first global reign between the years 538AD to 1798AD just as prophecy predicted. The fact the Vatican has been killing hundreds of thousands of innocent Christians annually via their henchmen most know as Islam and the fact the Vatican has quite a few hospitals killing babies every day shows us the prophecy regarding this “sinister” beast in Rome has never changed and never will change. The only difference will be in how society accepts her bloodthirsty acts. And they will in fact allow for them across the board. Continue reading
“The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, operating through its Migration and Refugee Services division, resettled more than 22,000 refugees in 2015, with many of them coming from the Muslim-dominated countries of Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Sudan and Afghanistan. …Some of the states where the Catholic bishops are most active in resettling Muslim refugees are Michigan, Minnesota, Tennessee, Ohio, Florida, California, Arizona, Maine, Georgia, Nebraska, Illinois, Virginia, Kentucky, Washington, Texas and Utah. …At the same time the Catholic Bishops are placing Muslim refugees into hundreds of U.S. cities and towns, they have also been lobbying Congress for the U.S. to embrace the mostly Catholic Central Americans who have massed at the U.S.-Mexico border seeking asylum. “If you are a Catholic, you are likely being bombarded this week (Jan. 8-14) with propaganda about welcoming the stranger,” writes refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran at her blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch.” –Source
That all being said, when right here in the good old US of A starts seeing the numbers of rapes by Muslims continue to climb and Islamic honor killings in America go off the chart remember this one basic fact. It was the prophesied man of sin in Rome who put every young girl in America in danger of being raped and even killed for the sole purpose of having a massive Islamic voting bloc in America. Sure, like their wicked offspring, La Cosa Nostra (aka Mafia) the Vatican will always place a reputable facade on their actions so as to have the winning hand in any “moral” argument no matter how obvious it all is. What I mean is, when someone asks them why they are breaking our laws and flooding murderers, rapists and child molesters into our country by the millions, they can play the moral card and shout back, “don’t you have love for your fellowman?!” And we say yes we do! And that very love moves the obedient bride of Christ to warn the world over of their openly exposed ulterior motives. And what might that be you ask? I will let the Vatican’s very own prelates admit their agenda in writing… Continue reading
