Need Something? Father Peter Mary Rookey and his Miracle Prayer

The Miracle Prayer of Father Peter Mary Rookey

Lord Jesus, I come before you just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your name I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Savior. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit. Come, Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I Love You, Lord Jesus. I Praise You, Jesus. I Thank You, Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen. 

Mary, Mother of Sorrows, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.

Quotes from Father Rookey: “Say this prayer faithfully, no matter what you feel, when you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word, with all your heart, something good spiritually will happen to you. You will experience Jesus, and HE will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see.”

It was while in Ireland that the healing began. Blessing people who requested it after Mass, not an uncommon request, miraculous healings began to occur. Word spread, and more and more people came for his blessings. The Chicago Tribune wrote about him in 1994. “’It was very humbling,’ Rookey says.  It appeared that many had experienced cures for life-threatening illnesses or injuries-unbeknownst to the young cleric. The priest’s popularity did not escape his superiors’ attention.”

Finally, answers to all “the vaccine questions”

Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’
Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’
Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’
Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’
Bud: ‘Yes.’
Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’
Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’
Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’
Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’
Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’
Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’
Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.
Bud: ‘Ok.’
Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’
Bud: ‘That’s right.’
Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Certainly.’
Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’
Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’
Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’
Bud: ‘That’s fine.’
Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’
Bud: ‘Absolutely not?’
Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’
Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’
Bud: ‘I know.’
Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’
Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’
Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’
Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’
Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’
Bud: ‘Correct.’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’
Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’
Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’
Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’
Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’
Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’

People who accept the fact that men can be women and women can be men typically also have no problem accepting dangerous “vaccines” that don’t actually prevent what they’re supposed to prevent.

If MASKS are so important, why hasn’t the government initiated a “crash” research and development program to produce and widely distribute the “perfect” high performance mask?

If the so-called Covid-19 VACCINE is so effective, why was it necessary for the CDC to redefine the term “vaccine” in order to match the dismal performance of the current offerings?

If Nobel Prize winning Ivermectin is so dangerous and ineffective, why do places like central Africa and at least one Indian state (with a population of some 200 million) where Ivermectin is the preferred treatment and prophylactic therapy (for humans) do so much better than most other places, in spite of their contaminated environments and overcrowded conditions? Also, why is it that the symptoms of long-term Covid are typically eliminated within 48 hours of taking Ivermectin, after conventional vaccines and other approved therapies provided little or no relief?

If the “vaccines” and masks are safe and effective (as claimed) why do masked, vaccinated people still get and spread Covid? Why are “booster shots” necessary and why is overdosing so dangerous?

Does the alleged, highly transmissible “Delta Variant” actually exist, or are the vaccines simply much less effective and much more dangerous than advertised?

Is Dr. Anthony Fauci the real life/current day embodiment of the “Big Brother” character from the 1984 novel and the famous Apple Macintosh 1984 commercial? Are WE the real life/current day embodiment of the poor souls who were forced to listen to that guy? Isn’t it time somebody put a stop to it?

More “official” absurdity from the Vatican

Catholic Cardinal, speaking for the Pope, says this:

“The abiding Christian conviction is that Jesus Christ
is the new way of salvation.
However, this does not mean that the Torah is diminished
or no longer recognized as the ‘way of salvation for Jews.’”

Link to original story

Editor’s note: Jesus Christ, the eternally begotten Son of God; the second, Divine Person of the Holy Trinity; the New Adam; the holy and spotless Lamb of God; IS, has ALWAYS BEEN and ALWAYS WILL BE the sole means of salvation for ALL, including Jews.

The Torah constitutes the written Word of God. Incorporated within it is The Divine Law, which is perfect. The Divine Law has never been abrogated, by God.

BUT, due to the decrepit, permanent, negative effects of Original Sin on our essential human nature, which has been profoundly damaged/wounded/corrupted by sin, as well as our irreparable offenses against God’s infinite perfection and justice; salvation is in NO WAY POSSIBLE, except by means of the work of A HOLY and SPOTLESS (divine and absolutely sin-free) human REDEEMER (Jesus Christ), who is BOTH wholly acceptable to God and fully capable of making satisfactory reparation for the grievous offenses (sins) which man has ALREADY committed against GOD.

In short, God’s Law is wonderful, perfect and eternal, in that it shows us how to live and love, preparing us to properly coexist with God and man, in Heaven and on the Earth.

But, the Divine Law (Torah, Ten Commandments, Decalogue) pales in comparison to our Divine Savior and Creator God, Jesus Christ, who remains the ONLY means of eternal salvation, for ALL persons of faith, everywhere and for all time.

The Cardinal, the Pope (and everybody else, including the Jews) may not believe that, but they SHOULD, since there’s absolutely nothing more important!

Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński , the Polish (Catholic) “Primate of the Millennium” to be beatified on September twelfth

Despite all their trials and travails (or perhaps, because of them) the Polish people have been reliably Catholic, for over a thousand years.

For most of that time, if the civil government fell, the ranking Polish Catholic Cardinal automatically became the interim chief executive. So, up until fairly recent times, “Separation of Church and State” was never regarded by the Polish people as a valid concept.

Throughout WWII and for most of the Soviet Occupation, Cardinal Wyszynski served as Karol (Saint Pope John Paul II) Wojtyła’s Cardinal and Superior. The two were known to work very closely, together.

Their work culminated in Saint Pope John Paul II’s trips to Poland,
where he invoked the Holy Spirit before the Polish people,
bolstered the Solidarity Labor Union
and sparked confusion and terror
in the minds of his Communist Soviet adversaries,
leading shortly to the Fall of the Soviet Union
and the freedom of Western Europe,
without a single shot being fired;
something all the nuclear missiles in the world,
billions of dollars worth of conventional weapons and troops,
along with the combined economic and military power
of all the major, Western Powers
had never been able to accomplish.

Recent Covid experience serves to undercut pro abort’s “My Body, My Choice”

The new (welcome and long overdue) Texas abortion restrictions (which the U.S. Supreme Court has so far, declined to review or overturn) are (indirectly) the result of the latest, popular opinion about Covid vaccinations and masking.

With all the government masking and vaccine requirements popping up around the country, along with substantial, popular support for same, supposedly “to save lives”, the old, pro abortion “My Body, My Choice” mantra no longer holds water.

Today, it’s more like, “Do what the government tells you,
for your own good and for the good of others.”

All of which goes to show that certain irrational beliefs and practices (like abortion) which have always been immoral and contrary to the common good, will eventually, be called out and corrected; sometimes, for the most ridiculous reasons.

Let’s all hope this is the beginning of a trend!

Argentine “Catholic” Diocese shows its “communion with Pope Francis” by publicly posting prayer to Pachamama idol

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — The Diocese of Venado Tuerto’s Caritas branch apologized Tuesday for having posted on its social media a prayer to Pachamama, a (pagan) Andean deity.

“The pachamama is a symbol of fertility, of the earth and the sacredness of life. It is a myth full of spiritual meaning (that) can be used to advantage,” said the now-deleted Aug. 1 post.

This is what happens when Popes and Bishops “give cover” to cheap, “tin-horn”, mostly Democrat Pro Abortion politicians

Congress of the United States
Washington, DC 20515

Statement of Principles
June 18, 2021

As Catholic Democrats in Congress, we are proud to be part of the living Catholic tradition – a tradition that unfailingly promotes the common good, expresses a consistent moral framework for life, and highlights the need to provide a collective safety net to those individuals in society who are the most vulnerable. As legislators in the U.S. House of Representatives, we work every day to advance respect for life and the dignity of every human being. We believe that government has moral purpose.

We are committed to making real the basic principles that are at the heart of Catholic social teaching: helping the poor, disadvantaged, and the oppressed, protecting the least among us and ensuring that all Americans of every faith are given meaningful opportunities to share in the blessings of this great country. That commitment is fulfilled in different ways by legislators but includes: reducing the rising rates of poverty, particularly child poverty; increasing access to education for all; pressing for access to universal health care; recognizing the dignity of all humans; and repairing long-standing racial and gender inequities in our society. Each of these issues challenges our obligations as Catholics to community and helping those in need.

We envision a world in which every child belongs to a loving family and agree with the Catholic Church about the value of human life. Each of us is committed to reducing the number of unintended pregnancies and creating an environment with policies that encourage pregnancies to be carried to term and provide resources to raise healthy and secure children. We believe this includes promoting alternatives to abortion, such as adoption, improving access to children’s healthcare and child care, and creating a child benefit through the expanded and improved Child Tax Credit.

In all these issues, we seek the Church’s guidance and assistance but believe also in the primacy of conscience. In recognizing the Church’s role in providing moral leadership, we acknowledge and accept the tension that comes with being in disagreement with the Church in some areas. We recognize that no political party is perfectly in accord with all aspects of Church doctrine. This fact speaks to the secular nature of American democracy, not the devotion of our democratically elected leaders. Yet we believe we can speak to the fundamental issues that unite us as Catholics and lend our voices to changing the political debate – a debate that often fails to reflect and encompass the depth and complexity of these issues.

We also urge the Church to heed the words of Our Holy Father
Pope Francis, who wrote in his Apostolic Exhortation, “The Joy of the Gospel,” that the Eucharist although it is the fullness of sacramental life, is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak.” Further, the Holy Father extolls that clergy must act as facilitators of grace, not arbiters, because “the Church is not a tollhouse; it is the house of the Father, where there is a place for everyone, with all their problems.” As legislators, we too are charged with being facilitators of the Constitution which guarantees religious freedom for all Americans. In doing so, we guarantee our right to live our own lives as Catholics but also foster an America with a rich diversity of faiths.

We believe the separation of church and state allows for our faith to inform our public duties and best serve our constituents. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is central to the life of practicing Catholics, and the weaponization of the Eucharist to Democratic lawmakers for their support of a woman’s safe and legal access to abortion is contradictory. No elected officials have been threatened with being denied the Eucharist as they support and have supported policies contrary to the Church teachings, including supporting the death penalty, separating migrant children from their parents, denying asylum to those seeking safety in the United States, limiting assistance for the hungry and food insecure, and denying rights and dignity to immigrants.

We solemnly urge you to not move forward and deny this most holy of all sacraments, the source and the summit of the whole work of the gospel over one issue. We remind you that the Second Vatican Council renewed emphasis on the Eucharist as the central focus, especially in the Council’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy: “For the liturgy, ‘through which the work of our redemption is accomplished,’ most of all in the divine sacrifice of the Eucharist, is the outstanding means whereby the faithful may express in their lives, and manifest to others, the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church.” To pursue a blanket denial of the Holy Eucharist to certain elected officials would indeed grieve the Holy Spirit and deny the evolution of that individual, a Christian person who is never perfect, but living in the struggle to get there.

As Catholic Democrats who embrace the vocation and mission of the laity as expressed by the late Pope John Paul II in his Apostolic Exhortation, Christifideles Laici, we believe that the Church is the “people of God,” called to be a moral force in the broadest sense. We believe the Church as a community is called to be in the vanguard of creating a more just America and world. And as such, we have a claim on the Church’s bearing as it does on ours.

Editor’s note: If the (mostly spineless) Bishops were actually Catholic and truly pro-life, they would have long ago, excommunicated the whole lot of ’em, along with President Biden! This document, along with the “handy” list of signers makes things even simpler. What more do they need?

Contrary to what today’s Catechism might incorrectly infer, someone who rejects the Trinitarian God of Christians does not pray to that God, but to another of their own making

A brief look at some of the Church Fathers will further illustrate the traditional Catholic view:

St Augustine: “This heresy affirms that all heretics are on the right path
and that all teach the truth. This is so monstrous an absurdity
that it seems to me to be incredible.”

Pope Pius VII: “By the fact that the indiscriminate freedom
of all forms of worship is proclaimed, truth is confused with error,
and the Holy and Immaculate Spouse of Christ (The Church)
is placed on the same level as heretical sects…” – Post Tam Diuturnas

Pope Gregory XVI: “…. those who pretend that the way
to [eternal] beatitude starts with any religion at all
should be afraid and should seriously think over the fact
that, according to the testimony of the Savior Himself,
they are against Christ, because they are not for Christ,
and that they are miserably scattering
because they are not gathering with Him…” – Mirari Vos

Editor’s note: Taking into account all of the above: God is sovereign and all powerful, so by the timely application of the grace obtained by Jesus Christ on the cross, at Calvary, he can choose to “save” anyone, for any reason, or for no reason at all. But, Jesus personally founded, authorized, empowered and perpetually guaranteed the Holy Catholic Church for the purpose of our salvation, so any exceptions to the norm would likely be very, very rare, nothing less than miraculous and certainly NOT routine.

Mundabor explains: The Church has already given us all the answers we need

I realise I will never be among the cool guys. But in my simple mindedness, I do think that the Church has already given us all the answers we need, and has given us beautiful Mysteries for the ones we don’t.

My job in this life is not to wrestle, but to serve; and not to question, but to obey.

All the rest, my friends, is of the devil, and the devil will do irreparable damage if we allow him to. The devil will, as I see written around with great waste of pixels, leverage one’s ego and try to slowly turn a soul, which at this point fancies itself so good and deep, against God.

Editor’s note: Jacob/Israel’s situation (as pictured) was practically and prophetically, quite different.

The seven main impediments to accepting the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Resisting the Diabolical Quantum Leap; or, Keeping Your Head Screwed-On Straight (in these strange times)

Put bluntly: a really bad man is going to soon make his public entrance onto the world platform. He will exert enormous influence, presenting himself as a savior of sorts in the midst of great worldwide trials. The price of accepting his “solution” will be some form of apostasy. At the end of the day, whether we call this fellow “an” antichrist or “the” Antichrist is little more than semantics. We must resist him, either way.

[He will use the “voltage” of his electrifying influence
over the world and the “vacuum” of today’s
Dictatorship of Relativism, where both Faith and Reason
are despised, to seek to cause a “Quantum Leap”
of mankind’s thinking into his own
Diabolical domain; a realm duly adorned
with sparkling sheep’s clothing.
Tragically, he will likely succeed
in the minds of most.] 

Furthermore, these Truths I here present are perhaps even more important now than in the time the Antichrist himself makes his public entrance. For I do think that the faithful remnant will likely be protected in refuges during his actual reign, and much miraculous protection — both physical and spiritual — will be afforded to the remnant during that time. On the other hand, the days we must now endure do indeed see the snares of the Antichrist being disseminated throughout both the Church and the world (and I do not doubt that many of these recent snares are indeed from the man of sin himself), and we must resist them with the more or less “ordinary” graces at our disposal in these days of pre-Illumination of Conscience trials.

Nevertheless, apart from considerations of individual Antichrists/ the Antichrist himself, we above all know, from Scripture (cf. 1 John 4:3), that the Spirit of Antichrist pervades the world. This unholy spirit certainly operates in proportion to the degree of sin in the world; therefore, eschatological speculations and individual prophecies aside, we know that the Spirit of Antichrist is today more operative than ever beforewith due regard to the fact that the world is more steeped in sin than at any point in the past.

Archbishop Vigano: The lack of “common sense” in individuals has in large part made possible this assault against God, against the Church, and against the human race that is represented by the Great Reset and the ideology it expresses

Irrationality, the abdication of reason, the annihilation of critical judgment and the denial of evidence are the true pandemic virus of our time, which in rebellion against God manifests a delirium of omnipotence and in collective madness reveals the just nemesis of this wicked challenge.

Military ceremonials and the Ceremonials of the Church are intertwined

… what the ceremonies surrounding the Tomb are is the highest form of ART. It is living ART, not consisting of a mere two-dimensional representation, not consisting of inanimate objects, but ART consisting of human beings in action. The uniforms, the gait, the precise rubrics, words, gestures and movements – these all combine into a perpetual work of art that not only moves and inspires the people who witness it, but also accomplishes the goal of making tangible a RESPECT for and a REMEMBRANCE of all of the fallen unknown soldiers. The Tomb Guards walk their patrol whether anyone is there to see them do it or not. It isn’t a show. It is a service. It is a rite.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is exactly what I just described, except that the Mass is the most perfect artistic action in the universe because the Mass is the artistic creation of God Himself. The Mass is SUPERNATURAL ART. The Holy Spirit taught the Church the Mass. The Mass is art that is so perfect that it actually causes something SUPERNATURAL to happen – it causes Heaven and Earth to touch, it causes time to be bent such that the moment of “now” touches and intersects with the moment of Calvary 1984 years ago, and it causes bread and wine to be transubstantiated into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, made PHYSICALLY SUBSTANTIALLY PRESENT. Man calls down God, and God, in His infinite love, responds and fully submits in complete love, making Himself present on the Altar both at the moment of His death, and in His resurrection, so that He may go into us not only spiritually but also physically as Food.
