To My friend Marie Downey


Your requiem Mass is just over, Marie.

It was beautiful, Marie; beautiful homily by a beautiful priest, 

and a dignified reading of the Prayers of the Faithful, 

by one of the two nieces that you loved so much.

Thank you Marie. For your friendship, love, support; 

all of which came straight from your heart, you succeeded

in doing something that is very rare; you showed me God, 

you transmitted His love, His true love you poured into

my heart. By your true and living faith in Jesus, His Only Son

you supported and strengthened my faith in Him also, 

so that I could dare to let go of myself and trust only in Him. 

When you needed to be left alone by everybody, 

I think I did, at some level, understand.

The wound of rejection at the start of a child's life, is deep.

One of the first things you told me about yourself was the hurt

of rejection you felt as you learned from your mother that you 

had been adopted. What you were left with was the conviction

that your biological mother did not want you since she gave you away.

Despite the good family you were adopted into, a family which you 

loved and respected, you still struggled with  feelings of not being 

worthy of love,

(the child in you reasoned like how else could your 

biological mother have just given you away?)

all your life.


And then when your husband Paul died so tragically, after only a 

few short years of marriage, you felt again that you must not be

someone worth loving, since the closest people in your life; 

your biological mother and father, and then your spouse, just left you. 

I remember you told me that you became angry with God, 

it was Finbar, Finbar, who was so perceptive, who asked you once, 

in Medugorje, if you were angry with God, and you said yes.

The wounds of rejection; and in particular the one derived from the 

primary relation; the one to our biological mother,

I understand it, because I also suffered from it. It is imprinted on a child's soul.

It is so strong that it motivates a person's actions, decisions and behavior, 

even as adults and often for the rest of their life.

It becomes the filter through which we interpret subsequent events, they are 

seen through this perception of being rejected; again and again.

It is strong. And it is false, a lie.

You were loved, Marie! 

People loved you for who you were, so lively and cheeky, so much fun, and more 

importantly, so loving and caring. 

You touched people's heart and lives in a way that few people do. 

You touched the heart of the priest who celebrated your requiem Mass while ago,

and he only met you once!

The people that loved you most wanted to protect you from more grief 

and pain when they told you to be careful. 

There was no rejection, there was love.

But you interpreted that as being rejected once again; you told me 

that nobody wanted you to be happy, not Finbar, not your parents, nobody, 

but the truth is that everybody wanted you to be happy!

But this psychological trigger was too strong.

In listening to the homily of the priest this morning, to whom you made your 

last confession and to whom you poured out your heart of your inner conflict,

you must have finally realized this.

Perceived or real rejection by others can often lead to self rejection.

That is the real content and meaning of suicide.

But nobody is judging you Marie, nobody. 

God only, and He knows the love you spread here on earth.

So many people in the Catholic Church, which is the only Church that has the full 

truth about God and on how to be reunited with Him, are unable to bring others 

into the Church because of their lack of genuine and pure love in their relationships 

with others, even though their words are correct, they are often conveyed in a 

cold and dry way. Many even drive people out this way.


"If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, 

and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing"

 (1 Corinthians 13:2)


God Is Love

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been 

born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, 

because God is love."

 (1 John 4:7-8)

 And there Marie, you were a success.

Paradoxically, you yourself had arrived at this deep connection with God through the pain and 

grief suffered by the loss of your husband Paul. Our crosses brings us to True Life.

Thank you for your friendship, Marie. 

May you Rest In The Peace of God. 


The Mystery of Christmas




 The Mystery of Christmas, 

when The Word became flesh, 

when God allowed Himself, 

lowered Himself, 

to be born amongst us as little human  being, 

A Baby!


When I was young I thought the whole Christianity thing was largely uninteresting and for old, simple, uneducated, boring and narrow minded people, a thing of the past, also because of all the horrible 

atrocities and stupid actions, carried out in it's name. 

I said: well if that is what Christianity is all about, I am not interested.

But that is not what it is about, we should not look at other people and 

imitate them, or believe that what they are saying or doing is necessarily 

right or good, 

we should only trust in God, through his only son Jesus

true God and true Man.

When we get to know Jesus, a personal relationship with God Himself is created. And although God is neither male nor female, He is at the same time both.

In the Catholic faith we have God as Father; The Principle,

Jesus as Saviour; Brother and Friend, 

The Holy Spirit to illuminate and strengthen us, 

and Mary, the Mother Of God, who, like all good mothers, is always 

present to us; her children, to protect, guide and intercede for us.


The entire setting, and all the aspects of the Christmas story are

interesting and fascinating; 

Here we have a young girl; Mary, around 14-16 years old, 

unmarried and pregnant, 

and Joseph, a much older man, a good man, who agreed to marry her, 

even though the child she was carrying was not his.

In carrying out their civic duty in regard to the census that took place, 

they had to go to the birth place of Joseph; Bethlehem, and 

when Mary started to go into labour, nobody was prepared 

to help them, they had to find shelter outside the town, in a stable, 

in the most humble and poor conditions.

Because Godliness has nothing got to do with worldly status, power or wealth.

The divinity of the God-child was recognized by everybody, 

also by King Herod, who set in motion the order of the massacre of all babies under the age of 2, in order to get rid of Him straight away, 

"to nip God in the bud". 

So Joseph took the God-child Jesus and Mary with him, as they fled to Egypt.

The drama of this happening is fascinating, and today there is 

historical and archeological evidence to support the facts of the

events, it is not a fable, a "story".

To trust that God is among us, that He is small and fragile and at the same time 

unlimited in power and love, is the essence of Christmas. 

In order to trust in Him, all we have to do is relax here and now, 

let go of our own ideas, concepts and interpretations 

(fabrications of our own minds)

always thinking and planning ahead. All we have is this moment.


God is present, here and now. 


The beyond is within our reach


Many people can not understand why people are still holding on to 

their faith after all the revealed scandals and corruption within the church.

It is because they cannot differentiate between the sinful actions of men; 

human beings who makes up the church, and the teaching of the Catholic 

Church; which is the truth about God. 

Because sadly there is no area or domain of earthly life that is not corrupt, 

for the simple reason that Man is fallen; corrupt.

That is why we need God. 

We do not need to look outside of ourselves; a good examination of  ourselves 

suffices to recognize that this is true.

We can't expect others to be perfect and without blemish when we ourselves 

are not.

There is only One Person who is perfect, and that is Jesus. 

He is The Truth and The Way that leads to Life.

The Life that is the objective reality beyond the falseness and delusions

of our minds, the same Source of Life that created us, what we refer to as God.

This source has never left us, it is not separate from us, it is within us.

We need to do the personal and spiritual work (usually the same thing!) to get 

back to it, to find God again.

The intricate and often cunning operations of our minds; our perceptions and 

interpretations of events are subjective and individual, and

 that is why we must not put our trust in Men, because the minds of Men are unreliable, as they are the content of our conditioning, and functions much like computers. 

After everything in this life has been taken away, there is not nothing left, 

because matter, energy, remains.

Look at the way everything has been made to function perfectly in nature, 

it proves the supreme intelligence of the creative force. 

I am bowled over by how insects live, for example. How intelligent they are.

The teaching of the Bible and the Church is a spiritual teaching that addresses 

itself to our hearts, our soul. But it is not a sentimental teaching that speaks to

our feelings or feel-good concepts.

It demands to be implemented without really understanding it, or often without 

any understanding at all, but by practicing  it, the understanding comes afterwards.

That is unacceptable to many people, and they reject it for that reason. 

To trust something that one cannot see seems ludicrous.

But personally I think it is this world that is ludicrous and crazy.


The Apostles


When I think of the characteristics of some of the apostles of Jesus; 

Peter, who denied even knowing Jesus, 

Thomas who did not believe in Jesus Resurrected until he could see Him, 

and the one everybody knows so well; Judas, who betrayed Jesus for 

a few pieces of silver, I think how humanity has not changed at all

in the appr. 2020 years that has passed since. 


They are like us, like sub-personalities that we all carry inside us. 

Your first reaction might be: "what? how dare she say that? 

I am not like that", but I would respond: "have you been really



I do not condemn Peter for denying knowing Jesus as he watched in 

horror what was happening to Jesus, what was playing out in front of 

his eyes, it must have been terrifying. The survival instinct kicks in.

Peter, who had been with Jesus during his time of ministry, had recognized 

him as God, but the human side of him had not understood Jesus, 

which he revealed in Matthew 16, where Jesus predicts his death:

"21From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

22Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”

23Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

24Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25For whoever wants to save their life f will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

28“Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."


Suffering is the main thing that humanity cannot understand.

We cannot understand it, because to us it does not make sense.

We revolt against it.

At the first crossroad when things do not go the way we want to or had 

planned, we often blame God, by denying his existence, and continue in 

our efforts of making things better, in order to eliminate suffering, which 

we find intolerable, and which we do not accept. 

It is hard to understand, it takes time, but it is within everybody's grasp, 

and it is at the heart of the roman catholic faith. 

Our crosses, whatever they may be, serves as our tools of redemption

when we unite them with Jesus, and they liberate us, we become free 

from ourselves.

This is why divorce is not allowed for married couples, no matter what happens, 

why there is no abortion for women finding themselves pregnant when they do 

not want to be, why assisted reproduction methods is not permitted by the church 

for infertile couples. 

It is because by finding worldly ways of resolving these problems, we miss 

out on the power of the Cross that Jesus gave us by his example. 

If we want to unite ourselves with God, 

we have to do the same. Not my will, but your will, Father.

This is why we have to live in the world, but in a way that is not of the world.

This is why we should never have the interest of our comfort first in mind, 

why we should not worry about material things and money. 

We should focus on God, living in a constant state of surrender to Him, 

no matter what happens, good or "bad". 

I say "bad" in inverted commas, because if we truly 

do this,  the "bad" things transforms themselves, our world change. 

We have to be aware of our defense mechanisms in operation, 

faced with a "negative"experience, because it is exactly there and in  

that moment we have to do things differently, we have to change; convert.


The aspect of priestly celibacy brings with it a very high level of difficulty, 

and that is why it is so spiritually powerful, a true and complete surrender 

of the body; biology, psychology, feelings, everything; a complete gift and 

offering of oneself. 

People that still go on about " the priests right to marry", do not 

understand the authentic catholic faith.

I know, as do many others, that all the things that truly make me progress in 

my life, are all difficult ones, sometimes really painful and even frightening. 

Gold is tested by fire. Life is not supposed to be easy. 

Humans have two dimensions, an earthly one and a divine one. 

The divine, or God, can only be attained by Jesus, the only Son of God. 

This work of our reunification with Him has to be carried out while we are 

still in this earthly dimension, that is why the Sacraments are indispensable, 

and the only way that our spiritual death: the separation of our body and 

soul can be reunited and we can be born into Eternal Life. 

It happens here and now, nobody can afford to put it off to a later time, 

because nobody knows their time nor their hour.

We are all created by the same substance; the same "dough", if you like, dough that becomes bread.

The enormous gap between us and God in regard to justice, 

has been bridged by Jesus, and it is true that it beggars belief, 

so I understand Thomas too, but it is nevertheless true.

Anyone that believes in Him, is saved.

The important role of our 5 senses


One thing that many protestants accuse Catholics of, is that we
"pray to statues", because most practicing  Catholics pray standing 
in front of statues; be it statues of Jesus, Mary, Joseph or any of the 
So why do we do that? 

Our 5 senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching — 
help us to orient ourselves in the physical world.
We use our eyes to see, our ears to hear, the nose to smell, 
the tongue to taste, and the skin to feel. They are the primary means 
we use to gain new knowledge.
Practicing Catholics use the ears to hear the Word of God. 

We know that what we see and take in with our eyes, goes into 
us and affects us, and that is why it is helpful to place oneself in front 
of our perfect Mother: Mother of God and Mother of men; Mary. 

The statues of her shows that she is humble, obedient and  
submitted to God, she is our role model.
So often, during the course of a day, we find ourselves standing in front 
of people full of pride and far from God, and as we, from the mere fact 
of living in their presence, we run the risk of becoming 
infected by this deadliest of all sin : pride.

Since we are all so much the opposite of Mary; we are arrogant, disobedient, 
dishonest and always wanting our own way, we need to be reminded 
OFTEN of Mary. 
What better way than to stand in front of a statue of her while praying to 
her or consecrating ourselves to her. 
And numerous are the people dedicated to Mary who has experienced, 
through the sense of smell, a strong scent of roses while praying to her.
In her, Catholics have, in addition to God the Father, God the Son; Jesus, 
(our brother and friend) and God the Holy Spirit: a Mother.

Nobody can deny the fundamental importance of a mother in a child's life, 
in his or her formation and education, the role of the mother is primary. 
As we, every new day, set out in our new life in Christ,
we leave behind us our old selves and we now live with Christ; 
Son of God and Son of Man, true God and true Man, we truly do need 
Mary, the Mother of God and Our Mother. 
Can a newborn baby or a small child manage on his own? No, he cant!
In praying to the saints, whose teaching and individual lives teach us key 
elements of the truth about God, they intercede for us in concrete ways.
Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, for example, always emphasized the importance 
of trusting in God, of surrender, letting go of ourselves. 

She was not a perfect human being, and that is why she is so relevant and 
helpful, we can identify with her. We can say: what she did, I can do too.
She is also associated with the smell of flowers, and indeed with flowers 
in the physical form, praying novenas to her promises us receiving flowers, 
and again; there are an incredible amount of people who can testify to having 
received flowers, and the granting of their supplication prayers, after having 
prayed to her.

Saint Joseph; whose life was also surrendered to do the will of God; has for
me, up until a few years ago, always been very much in the background, I 
never thought much about him. 
That was a mistake that I have since rectified,because he intercedes for us 
in the most incredible and completely concrete ways, when we invoke him! 
Think about it; he agreed to take Mary, who was  pregnant with a child that 
was not his, as his wife. The scandal and the contempt for that situation, 
by the Jewish society at the time, we can only imagine, because it is not so 
long since it was like that in our western world countries; only a few years ago.

Saint Padre Pio, Saint Anthony, Saint Rita, all the saints we know, teaches us 
things specific to them, about God, and they do intercede for us.
Through the dedicated and conscious use of our bodily senses
we acquire and develop higher senses, on higher levels.


The highpriestess of "progression" and political correctness: Mary Robinson


Since the beginning of Mary Robinson coming on the scene 

30 years ago, she was hailed by all the media; Ireland saw in her a chance to show 

to the entire world how progressive she was by electing her; a woman, as president. 

She became synonymous with progression, women's rights, equality, modernity, 

anti church, pro abortion.

She was revered, and I think it is still the case, by many Irish people.

"She is great" they all said, "she is a great president" they repeated. Why?

For the simple reason that she was a woman!!

The same reasoning that many used regarding Obama, when he became a 

presidential candidate.

"Fantastic! We want him! He will be great, he is great!" they said.

Why? Because he was black!

That is just a pathetic reason, it is also  racist and sexist to

make a judgement based on the colour or gender of a person. 

And as Kamala Harris is both a woman and black,

 it goes without saying that she must be fantastic! 


As for me, Mary Robinson always left me cold, she never once moved 

my heart or inspired me in any way. 

I always found her  haughty, self important, dry, predictable 

and extremely rigid, which was also a striking feature of her body movements. 

Of course she is happy to see the likes of Kamala Harris as vice president in

the States, and of course she was delighted with the prominent role that 

Michelle Obama had as First Lady to be able to promote abortion as a desired, 

responsible and even respectable thing to do. 

These 3 women all seems to have the same agenda, but it is a narrative that 

they impose on the world, they overstep and abuse their privileged positions.

If they stop their indoctrination, they will see that women, and people in general, 

are able to find their own values and come to their own conclusions. 



We should never lose sight of the importance of  Role models.  

They show us how to be, what to believe, what has value, 

how to act, how to speak, what kind of attitudes to have; 

in reality they are downloading themselves into us. 

A child does normally not know this of course, but 

whether we know it or not, and whether we like it or not, 

this is what happens.  

The first role models we had was our parents. 

Then comes grandparents, the extended family, teachers, 

friends, and famous people. 

Think about it: we become new versions of our parents or 

whoever brought us up. 

This is why Mary is so important to us Catholics, she is not only 

the Mother of Jesus; the Mother of God, but our Mother too, and 

she is our Role Model, who shows us how to get to Jesus.  

We must be close to her, in order to be influenced and guided 

by her. 

Then there is national culture:

Ireland is strongly associated with drinking in pubs,

in a lighthearted and jovial atmosphere of social interaction 

and networking.

France is world famous for haute cuisine, food is a big part 

of french culture.

And in the same way as all social interactions takes place around 

a drink in Ireland, in France they all take place around food. 

The French drink wine too, but it is rather for it's taste than for it's 

alcoholic effect, so they drink a glass, or maybe two, but that is 

normally it. (there are exceptions!)

The result from these two examples of culture is excess. 

People end up drinking and eating much more than they 

ought to and need to, which both brings serious problems.

“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”

( Ephesians 5:18)


“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, 
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

(1 Peter 5:8)


 “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.”

 (Philippians 4:5)

Excess of all kinds signals a lack of internal stability:
Being pulled into and trapped into Feelings and Ideas, 
Obsessions of all kinds, even "good ones" like Sport, 
and even Religion, which then risks turning believers 
into fanatics.

What we are asked to do is not complicated:
Pray, trust; surrender everything to God; who knows what we need,
live a sober life, a balanced life of work and rest, be aware at all times,
trust in God, and be vigilant with men. 
This spiritual program is not complicated, but it has been proven to be 
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road 
that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate 
and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
(Matthew 7, 13-14)

Original sin= spiritual disease


Original sin does not just refer to the fall of man long time ago;

more relevant to us; it refers to the sin that causes man to be separated 

from God NOW.


The first and deadliest sin is PRIDE,

it is the root of all evil.


Pride is deeply rooted in western culture, and some countries'

culture are more well known for it than others.

But it is in all of us. 

As parents we are blown up with personal pride when our children do well, 

because we believe it reflects well on us, and even when someone in our 

extended family excels, we let it drop in conversation that we are related to 

this person, as if thus some of that "glory" will somehow shine on us too. 

It is pride that prevents people from admitting they are wrong or that they 

wronged somebody, and therefore the all important asking for forgiveness 

does not materialize.  

It is pride that makes us believe that we are better than others, in whatever 

way, which is the personal judgement of ourselves, and pride will always 

lead to our own  humiliation, sooner or later.



"But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives 
grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and 
he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. 
Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded." 
(James 4, 6-8) 


"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you."
 (James 4, 10)


"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.  
For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, 
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, 
slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, 
swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having 
the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people."
 (2 Timothy 3:1-5)


"Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the 
mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let 
him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am 
the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. 
For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”  
(Jeremiah 9:23-24)

 (Proverbs 11:2)

When we achieve something, and when we receive something, 
our only pride should be Our Lord, because it was Him who 
gave it to us. 


" Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;

  be assured, he will not go unpunished."

(Proverbs 16:5)


"One's pride will bring him low,

but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor." 

(Proverbs 29:23)


 "For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,
but the haughty he knows from afar."
 (Psalm 138:6)
 "Do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not 
you who support the root, but the root that supports you."
 (Romans 11:18)


"Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who 
are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one 
another and compare themselves with one another, they are without 
(2 Corinthians 10:12)


Greed (or avarice) is when you are never satisfied, you never have enough,
no matter what it is.  


Lust is most commonly associated with sexual desire, but it can also 
be about money, power or food (gluttony), as distinct from our need for food.
The problem stems from a lack of self control.
Envy, or jealousy, is an atrocious monster, which causes horrendous 
destruction, especially if it is not recognized and acknowledged by 
the person itself; it can even result in death.     
Gluttony, as mentioned above, is a serious sin. 
In some cultures eating a lot of good and rich food is seen as a sign 
of wealth and a good standard of living.

But nowadays we see overeating; eating more than the body needs,
as a sign of mental instability and a lack of self control.
It manifests itself in obesity.
Today we can all observe the  amount
of people around us who falls into that category,
it is horrendous and grotesque.
Anger can often be justified, it arises spontaneously within us.
It is not a sin to feel anger, but it is a sin to "lash out" 
we have to control it.
If somebody actually, in reality did us wrong, 
which caused the anger; a hot feeling, remember that revenge 
is a dish that is best served cold
That is why we have to step back and let events take their course.
We must not interfere with it. 
Laziness is a tricky one, we can all easily find excuses for not 
doing things that ought to be done. 
It has to do with self discipline, and keeping a healthy balance 
between  work and rest. Laziness can also be about selfishness,
letting others carry out tasks for us, in stead of sharing them.
If there is idleness, laziness, or inactivity we shut down spiritually.


Telling lies brings guilt

Inability to forgive brings bitterness, 

Putting oneself first is selfishness,  

Always seeking pleasure and entertainment, 
results in forgetting about God 
Following one's own will and feelings instead of God's 
decrees is disobedience

It all prevents us from living in union with God. 






Living without the Presence of God





Living without the personal God; A Person; Jesus Christ,   

affects first of all the understanding; the intelligence.  

This self-installed mental ceiling which blocks out the Light 

that comes from above, causes a darkening of the mind, 

which limits everything to material things.

In a state of mind like that, fear, guilt, shame and despair 

can get in and get a foothold, which covers up 

The Life and The Truth which is written in everybody's heart.  

In Ireland 

The Irish are governed by heathens who legalized the horror of abortion, brought in gay "marriage", is normalizing the issue of transgender, they brought into law the right to help 

suicidal people to kill themselves, so we could not expect them 

to be able to handle the blown out of all proportion issue of a flu 

virus called corona.

There are even many Catholics who are terrified of it, which 

might be an indicator of their level of faith in God. 

This type of fear comes from the devil. 

We are supposed to be ready for whatever comes, and in any case, 

sooner or later, we ARE going to die. 

We should live with this in mind every day.

But the government is going too far in their mockery when they keep 

repeating:  "We must save life", "we must protect the vulnerable" 

The bishops are not much better, they are collaborating with this,

and as a result we were deprived of Mass. 

There are few priests and bishops who has the courage to continue preaching and 

living out the true teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

The reason Donal Trump is so popular is because he is NOT a politician,

he says exactly what he thinks without passing it through the political 

correctness filter, and he believes in the Only Son of God:


In contrary to Biden, who claims to be catholic and supports abortion.



The recently deceased US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (2020) 

and Simone Veil, the french politician, both iconic champions of women's rights, 

more than being highly respected, they were both revered, by most liberals from the left. 

Simone Veil, an Auschwitz Holocaust survivor, apart from being a champion for 

European unity and being the first female president of the European Parliament, 

is best known for, as health minister, of bringing 

the legalization of abortion into law in France. (Law Veil), 

even though she recognized that abortion is a tragedy for women.


At the time she had no support from the government that she was part of; 

the centre-right administration of President Valéry Giscard D’Estaing, 

it was the support from the left wing opposition that helped her to get it through.  

After her proposal one lawmaker claimed it would each year kill twice as many people 

 as the Hiroshima bomb, she was accused of wanting genocide, and of throwing embryos 

into crematorium ovens, with reference to her own experience of Auschwitz.

I spoke with a french catholic nun the day after Simone Veil died; on June 30th 2017, 

and she said that in her opinion Simone Veil had been a great person, 

deeply admired and revered, and rightly so.

When I objected that abortion is a mortal sin, and completely against the teaching 

of the catholic church, a church that she herself  had dedicated her entire life to, 

she just looked at me, and did not answer. 

I saw recently a documentary on baby chimpanzees, it showed a couple who had 

dedicated their life to rescue as many of them as possible, as chimpanzees are an 

endangered species because adult females are hunted and killed for their meat, leaving 

the little babies orphaned and unable to survive. 

It was touching to see, and what was interesting was how the couple taught the little 

chimpanzees survival skills.  I was surprised to learn that, as animals, they do not 

have an inbuilt awareness that snakes, for example, are dangerous, but after having 

been shown by the adults, acting as replacements for their dead mother, 

the modelling behavior of how to react, being confronted with a snake, 

the little ones "got it" instantly. 


I am writing about the chimpanzees only as a demonstration of how conditioning works, 

because in this respect humans are the same; we literally download our family's and 

society's words and behavior. The repetition of messages from the media enters our brain

and becomes ours.

If we really want to know the truth we have to move beyond our personal and cultural 

conditioning, because the truth is objective, it never changes, and it can only be attained 

through Jesus, true God and true man, and his teaching.




Teaching and Transmission of The Truth


The teaching  

In order to fulfill her obligation to transmit the Faith

The Catholic Church ought to teach properly the meaning of the 7 Sacraments:


  • Baptism.
  • Eucharist.
  • Confirmation.
  • Reconciliation.
  • Anointing of the sick.
  • Marriage.
  • Holy orders


The authentic faith of the Catholic Faith is not vague, subjective, wishy-washy.

Unfortunately in some parishes it has become like that. 

At a recent Mass in a village in France, the parents who wanted to baptize their baby 

had to, as is required in France, to publicly announce it and give their reasons for why 

they wanted it. 

In her statement the woman said that they wanted to baptize the child because it was "a strong

symbol and tradition in her family". The priest was standing next to her as she was speaking, 

and he did not make any mention to the fact that baptism is the most fundamental Sacrament

without which we can not become co-heirs with Christ.  

This is the church today.

It is no doubt linked to the protestant Alpha program that has been rolled out in catholic churches 

all over the world, in an effort to attract people to the church. 

Because in this program the Sacraments are not mentioned once.

And the bishops themselves do not have a problem with the Alpha program being rolled out in 

catholic churches.

But in any case, any human efforts to "attract" people are doomed to fail anyway, because it is 

Jesus that attracts.

 The efforts of destruction


The retreats in The Foyers of Charity in Chateauneuf-de-Galaure, where Marte Robin lived, 

are based on the teaching of  Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort.

It has brought very many people into the faith and it has inspired many people to consecrate 

their life to the Lord. 

Now there is to be released a book about Marthe Robin which seeks to prove that she was a 

fraud, written by the deceased "eminent writer and catholic expert" Conrad De Meester.

Conrad De Meester had drawn up his report regarding Marthe Robin, it had been submitted 

to Rome, they did not believe it. 

On the contrary; Marthe Robin was declared Venerable by Pope Francis, a key step to 

beatification, and the Pope recognized her as being "heroic in virtue".

At her funeral there was 4 bishops and over 200 priests.

But there is a section of the French Catholic Church that wants to become even more

protestant than they are already, and they have never accepted Marthe Robin.

It is hardly a coincidence that this manuscript is published a few months after the conclusion 

of the independent exterior research commission, whose identity is unknown, commissioned by the 

Foyers of Charity themselves; not with a view to a trial intending to find Father Finet, (the priest

 that Marthe worked with in setting up the Foyers) guilty or innocent, but with a view to accord 

a space for listening to testimonies from former pupils.

And to find out exactly what had taken place, in order to eliminate the risks of that happening again. 

Father Finet  has been dead for 30 years.

This retreat center is one of excellence and this was part of their continuous efforts to 

improve themselves.

The vast majority of the testimonies from 143 former pupils of the school (school founded by 

Marthe Robin and Père Finet) were positive regarding the priest, but 14 stories recounted 

"body touches" on the area of the neck, chest, arms, back, buttocks and legs, and questions of 

sexual nature during confession.

As already mentioned, the research commission's identity is kept secret and equally the rapport itself.

A large number of the former students are saying that they testified in good faith, but they now feel 

that they have been abused by the commission, as they do not know into which category their

testimony has gone. They are wondering if they have become "victims" without knowing it.

Did for example a simple buttoning of an apron become a "body touch"?

They underline that Père Finet was like a father to them, and had fatherly gestures.

The former students and Father Finet's family are urging The Vatican to review the case in a 

fully transparent manner and to interrogate the members of the commission.

But, in the meantime, what better time than to make a profit from releasing this book...


"Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save." 

(Psalm 146:3)

«Put no trust in a neighbor; have no confidence in a friend; guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your arms; for the son treats the father with contempt, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.»

(Micah 7: 5-6)

«It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.»

(Psalm 118:8)

«Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?»

(Jeremiah 17:5-9)


The devil, who is everywhere, also present in the church, suffers a lot from jealousy. 

He hates the success this retreat has had in bringing people

to Jesus. He wants an end to it. But he will not succeed.

The Foyers of Charity are established all over the world, that is all the "evidence" anyone should 

need to the authenticity of Marthe Robin. 

"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."

(John 10:10)
