In the following writing, a Friend of Medjugorje takes the United States’ bishops to task as never before. Witnessing the “Time of Grace” of Our Lady’s apparitions winding down, after almost 40 years, and seeing the desert of what our world has become, a Friend of Medjugorje considers it an immeasurable tragedy that the bishops have yet to give a green light to Our Lady. Heaven came with a solution for all the world’s needs, and it was ignored by the shepherds.
Addressing the bishops’ silence, their inertia, their fear, their betrayal of Christ through their rejection of His Mother’s visitations—a Friend of Medjugorje is blunt in his castigation of their inaction. Having put his own reputation, and the mission God entrusted to him, on the chopping block over and over again, in obedience to what God requires of him to speak, after almost 40 years, he has little patience for the recklessness by which the bishops have dealt with Medjugorje. A Friend of Medjugorje has paid the painful costs of being a witness and a voice for Our Lady, while experiencing, at the same time, the prospering and building of his mission—without any help from the Church for these almost 40 years with the Community of Caritas, the Extended Community and a worldwide following. He, therefore, has the ability to speak and write as no other, outside of the six Medjugorje visionaries. He stands with courage and moral leadership in confronting the evils of our day.
Yet, his indictment of the bishops is not without mercy, for even today, they could decide to open the doors of their dioceses to the messages of Our Lady that are medicine for the nations. The big question is, will they? Their actions over these almost 40 years gives the answer. They have said, “no,” to Our Lady.

Blind to Your Wrong
by a Friend of Medjugorje
David Barton, an evangelical author and speaker, said the following on a recent broadcast entitled, “Run to the Roar.” He begins by saying that male lions are not as fast as female lions, yet the two together have a strategy to capture their prey. The King of the Beasts will go on one side of a large grassy plain and roar. The roar is so loud that it can be heard five to eight miles away. The female lions, who are faster and better killers, await on the other side of the plain. The roar of the male lion scares the prey right into the claws of the female lions. If the animals were wise, they would run to the roar instead of away from the roar. The spiritual point being made is that our Christian leaders do the same; in fear, they run away from the roar of the enemies, instead of confronting the enemies and with God’s help, defeat them. Barton explains why in the following:
“As we know in the Scriptures, there are two very different places that we will spend eternity. There is Heaven and there is hell. They are both very real…Who goes to hell? Revelation 21:8 says in the first part that
“_________, ________, the faithless, the detestable, the murderers, the immoral, the sorcerers, the idolators, and all liars go to that lake of fire.”
Now look at all the bad stuff up there, murderers and liars and sorcerers; that’s some really bad stuff, except you’ll notice that [the first words in the verse were skipped.]. What is the first group that God sends to hell? The first group says
the cowards and the fearful.
Now, everybody else up there is there for what they did, liars or murderers or perjurers or whatever [they may be.]. The first two are there for what they didn’t do, for lacking backbone because they didn’t have backbone, because they weren’t courageous, because they were fearful. That’s interesting to me, that the first group that God says, “I don’t want you guys around me at all,” are the people who have no backbone, the people who won’t stand up…the cowards and the fearful. That is, again, running to the roar. Cowards and fearful will not run to the roar. They don’t want to engage; they don’t want to be in that battle. They don’t like battles. That’s not who we are. If we’re going to do what God wants done for Christians, and for the Church, and for the State, and for the Nation, we’re going to have to learn to run to the roar. We are going to have to start engaging in a way that we have not engaged with before. We’ve been playing defense for about 40 years and we have seen our country slowly taken from us.”1
Bishops—everything tragically happening right now, in real time, with the Church, our nation and in the world, you are responsible for. I lay it before your feet on behalf of the peasants in the pew and the other lost sheep who are not in the pews, but who are also under your care. We see little honesty in the grade you would give yourselves as shepherds. This writing is not a judgement about you, because that is God’s dominion alone. But we peasants in the pew are giving you a report card. We give you an F minus. You have failed miserably in recognizing what is right in front of you and you did nothing.
St. Paul said:
Bishops, your answers are not in the stupid United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, filled with committees and so-called experts who get you to sign on and adopt their non-convicting programs and solutions to problems, all the while producing no results in the way of conversions of souls. You are taking care of the flesh, while souls are declining, emaciated, and lacking nourishment for conversion. You, the bishops, are to be the experts. It is the Holy Spirit who has descended upon and anointed you. Are you stifling the Holy Spirit in you? You let the attorneys run the diocese instead of giving the flock a moral road to follow.
For example, you don’t need stupid “talking head” committees to tell you, as bishops, what to do with former Vice President, Joe Biden and Communion. Biden, as a Catholic, publicly declares himself a defender of the “right to abortion” and creates public policies to maintain this “right,” which is condemned by the Catholic Church. Recently, on November 17, 2020, the head of the U.S. Catholic Bishop’s Conference, Archbishop Jose Horacio Gomez, cowardly and fearfully, side-stepped this issue and other concerns of Biden’s policies by appointing “a committee” to make a study and recommendations for bishops to follow regarding whether or not Biden should be denied Holy Communion.
What is so difficult in dealing with Biden? Archbishop Gomez runs for the cover of a committee. Shame on him and all the bishops who stayed silent, letting the committee and their advisors form the judgement instead of just following the laws of the Church, decisively and immediately.2 On December 4, 2020, Archbishop Charles Chaput, in the periodical, First Things, warned that individual bishops, who publicly announce their intention to give Joe Biden Holy Communion, risk “a serious disservice” to Biden and to the rest of America’s bishops.3 The USCCB seeks, through study solution committees of so-called experts, empty solutions which are devoid of grace. You are purposely blind to the fact that the answers these committees “commit” to have not worked for decades.
If bishops knew truth, they could give a clear, precise answer/solution instantly, as Jesus did. In 2004, I spoke with then Bishop Raymond Burke of the La Crosse, Wisconsin, diocese before he was named Archbishop of St. Louis. Burke grew up on a farm in rural Wisconsin. He believed there was value in returning to a more agrarian way of life for the Church, which was our intent and purpose for meeting with him. Later, we met in Rome when Archbishop Burke was appointed Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura in 2008, the highest court in the Catholic Church. Burke was made a Cardinal two years later by Pope Benedict XVI. At that time, I discussed with Burke the difficulty our mission was experiencing through the restrictions by the bishops. Cardinal Burke did not go and reflect on committee rulings to me. Rather, he gave strong, clear direction without compromise. There was no “maybe” or “so-so.” He said what he said with the power of his discernment, not relying on anyone else’s opinion, but in truth.
Cardinal Burke is brave and retains a courage of which the Church very much needs, rather than what we have now in the bishops who straddle the fence, refusing to make definitive stands on so many critical issues of our day. The “sin of nuance.” The courageous “Burkes’” are one in a hundred. The strength of the Body of the Church has been weakened by poor discernment, a fear to stand up against the world, and for some, an acceptance of scandalous sin within the Church. This has happened under your reign as bishops. You avoid making a decision and pass if off to committees. Your answers ought not to be in or through the USCCB.
If answers were to be found in the USCCB, why are we in this, our time, clearly experiencing Divine Intervention? Divine Intervention? Where? How? Why? What you should be the first to see, you are blind to it because you seek only those answers that the world will approve. The key word again, “nuance,” to pass the buck instead of confrontation. The world assembles and implements worldly solutions, rejecting the spiritual. You are bankrupting the Church. Don’t roll your eyes what you are about to read because somewhere in the near future you may want to sear your eyes out for what you did not want to see. Your answers haven’t worked.
Where are the answers? They are in a mandate. Forty years of Divine Intervention from the spiritual realm, about to manifest into the physical realm.
Your answers are in Medjugorje.
Your answers are in the messages given in Medjugorje.
Your answers are in the Queen of Peace.
Your answers are in the infallible “fact” Our Lady is appearing every day for almost 40 years.
Your lack of understanding, in this moment of Divine Intervention, is such a lack of faith that perhaps you need to adopt the name “Bishop Thomas,” after the apostle Thomas who out of all the apostles, was the one who did not believe in the Resurrection.
Will you not believe unless the Virgin Mary appears to you personally? “Blessed are those who believe without seeing,” the Gospel says. Your answers are in the conclusions made by a multitude of scientists who studied and tested the visionaries, putting them through the grinder, leaving no stone unturned in their search for the truth.a These scientists reached the verdict that the six visionaries are seeing something not of this world. After 23 years of utilizing the most advanced scientific methods and tests, the scientists made their final conclusion in 2005, having exhausted every scientific test possible. The team of scientists’ final, infallible conclusion was simply stated. The visionaries:
“are absent of deceit.”
Of the twenty-two main scientists, plus others, several issued a warning to the Church, saying the claims of the visionaries should be taken seriously. Some of the scientists were atheists and became believers through their tests and studies. At this point, it is pertinent for the “Bishop Thomas’” to review the definition of “infallible.”
Infallible: incapable of making mistakes or being wrong.
Medjugorje is bigger than “real;” it is Biblical. Medjugorje is the open door into Revelation. Yet, while you reject or ignore and are indifferent to Medjugorje, it is the science that validates its truth. Yet, you hypocritically accept the very questionable “science” of wearing the mask, the science that is not infallible nor provable, as many experts are showing. You, our shepherds are supposed to be protecting your flock, but you, blindly, accept the masks and the controls being forced upon the Church without questioning who or what is behind it all. You turn away from the above 100% scientific conclusion the visionaries are seeing a supernatural Being in front of them, while putting your faith in the mask, when there are many scientific objections coming out regarding wearing the mask. More and more scientists and doctors are showing scientific data that masks are dangerous and harmful to one’s health on several levels.
For example, the continuous wearing of masks, breathing in one’s own carbon dioxide, is damaging the end of brain nerves through lack of sufficient oxygen. There is great concern that wearing masks for hours a day will, 10 years from now, lead to an epidemic of dementia.b Again, while you bishops abide by the mandate of the mask, you remain indifferent to Our Lady’s plans for the healing of the world with the answers right in front of you. You are more concerned with saving the flesh, and all the while disregarding what the soul needs. The medicine Heaven has sent for the Church and world, through the presence and messages of Our Lady, cures every ill. Jesus said:
Medjugorje is straight from Heaven and is the vaccine against evil, yet you won’t prescribe it. But you will recommend the agenda of the coronavirus vaccine, which will result in the advancement of darkness, as many will see in the future. It is a tool to damage one’s spiritual health, even to the point of risking their Eternal Life for death of the soul. Medjugorje is your answer, with its hundreds of millions of conversions. These conversions are not shallow, but deep conversions. Said even better, they are radical life-changing conversions. They are conversions such as the likes of Mary Magdalene, the corrupter of men, and the apostle Matthew, the despicable tax collector. All peoples from all walks of life, those from all faiths, from the greatest sinners, the spiritually lethargic, the dregs of society to the top of the tier of society elites—all walks of mankind are represented in the people who have been converted through Medjugorje.
Why have you bishops been left out of the greatest event that has taken place since the death of hte last apostle? It is your own mentalities that have blocked you from accepting Our Lady. She calls us “children and little children,” with the expectation that we humble ourselves in order to approach Her messages as a child. Just as Jesus said in Matthew 18:3, that Our Lady echoes.
But through the decades you dare not touch Medjugorje. Actually, it may be better you hadn’t. You would have redefined what Our Lady desired because you are too indoctrinated with “worldly” theology and skewed interpretations of Church doctrines to understand the new language, delivered from Heaven, language that the learned think is too simple and repetitious. No, this language, this new communication, is something that has never happened since the beginning of time. The world is seeing a “first-born” miracle, something that has never happened in all of history; a new language that speaks to us in words we recognize, but with a divine ability for everyone to be able to hear Our Lady communicate to us individually. A new efficacy birthed by the Queen of Peace to communicate to all Her children that are devoted to Her. One message can speak to a whole group or to each of us individually. The same message will also speak to you the next day, month, year, etc., with a different meaning.
God has given to Our Lady a new profound efficacy the world has never seen for the Mother of all to help us to hear Her and to break through the distracting noise of today’s technological prodigies and electronics that dangerously distance the world and souls further and further away from God. God had to give us a new communication to cancel the satanic chatter that satan has over all of Our Lady’s children. Our Lady said:
April 4, 1985
Our Lady said three very important things regarding Her above message.
1. “…I wish to keep on giving you messages as it has never been
2. “…in history…
3. “…from the beginning of the world…”
You have missed almost 40 years, in real time, when Heaven has “snowed down” grace, through Our Lady’s presence and words as never before. As a snowflake, to the naked eye, is a plain, simple white dot, but under a microscope its splendor and purity is revealed, so too Our Lady’s messages to the naked eye, are plain and simple words, but through the microscope of prayer, their splendor and purity are revealed. Looking at Our Lady’s messages through the soul’s microscope, reveals their profound beauty that literally speaks to a heart through grace. This mystery, of which I have written for decades, exposed in these words here written, is why Our Lady said these are “messages as never in history” in order to save the world.
As said above, these almost 40 years passing is a tragedy for you bishops, but there is a greater tragedy in that you have not let the peasants in the pew freely propagate what is on Heaven’s front burner to convert the world. It’s not even on your agenda with your conferences and committees which are busy being busy, producing nothing but a weakening Church. Some of these peasants in the pew are a chosen body, raised up as apostles, not in a symbolic way, but literally, to be apostles of Our Lady, just as St. Louis de Montfort prophesied when he said—Our Lady would come to raise up apostles of the latter days.
“Towards the end of the world … Almighty God and His holy Mother are to raise up saints who will surpass in holiness most other saints as much as the cedars of Lebanon tower above little shrubs.”4
But what does that apply to? de Montfort continues:
“These great souls filled with grace and zeal will be chosen to oppose the enemies of God who are raging on all sides. They will be exceptionally devoted to the Blessed Virgin. Illumined by Her light, strengthened by Her spirit, supported by Her arms, sheltered under Her protection, they will fight with one hand and build with the other.”5
Bishops, does this not apply now? What does de Montfort say?:
“They will be true apostles of the latter times…”
Bishops, Thomas’, why did Louis de Montfort state, approximately 300 years ago, what Our Lady of Medjugorje has repeatedly said in our time, referring to “my apostles?” Our Lady has called Her “true apostles” of this time, mentioning “my” “apostles” at least 153 times in Her messages. De Montfort described 300 years ago, what is exactly happening now, in our time, through Medjugorje. De Montfort says Mary’s first coming, being born years before Jesus, naturally preceded Jesus’ First Coming, and that Our Lady was scarcely known through Her life on earth. But there would be a second coming of Our Lady, preceding Jesus’ Second Coming.6
De Montfort makes clear that Our Lady must be known before She comes on the scene in Her second coming. And She has become known more and more throughout the centuries. How? Through Guadalupe, in Mexico, at Rue de Bac in Paris, France (where She made Her request of the Miraculous Medal to be worn around the neck so people will see it, making Her more known) Lourdes, France, and Fatima, Portugal, as well as other, minor apparitions throughout history. All of these apparitions were for the purpose of making Our Lady known and loved for the time of Mary that God ordained to prepare the world for Her Son’s Second Coming. De Montfort wrote:
“Mary scarcely (hardly known) appeared in the first coming of Christ… But in the second coming of Jesus Christ, Mary must be known and openly revealed by the Holy Spirit so that Jesus may be known, loved and served through Her.”7
All previous apparitions of Our Lady are paralleling the method of the First Coming of the Messiah. A long string of prophets, from Adam all the way to the last and greatest prophet, John the Baptist, prepared the way for the Coming of the Messiah. In the same way, all the above-mentioned apparitions of Our Lady, ending with Fatima, the last and greatest prophetic apparition, were for the purpose of preparing for the time, not of the coming of the Messiah, but the coming of the Woman of Revelation.
Do you need a sign? Fatima is the “John the Baptist,” the last prophetic apparition before Our Lady’s coming to Medjugorje, Her last apparitions on earth. And to confirm this even further, Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje began on June 24, 1981, on the Feast of John the Baptist! Do you get the message, the sign? But Our Lady told the visionaries ‘not to celebrate’ the anniversary of the Medjugorje apparitions on June 24th, John the Baptist’s feast day, but rather to celebrate the anniversary of Her coming on the day of Her second apparition, June 25th. This gives a clear connection. John the Baptist, the last prophet heralding the coming of the Messiah, connected with the meaning and purpose of Fatima to prepare the world for the coming of the final fulfillment of all the apparitions of the Woman of Revelation.
Bishops think: Why did Our Lady say the following in Medjugorje?
May 2, 1982
May 2, 1982
This is what Medjugorje is, bishops, and you have missed the train. It is time for you to listen to Our Lady’s apostles, who sit scattered throughout your churches, the peasants in the pews. It bears repeating what St. Louis de Montfort wrote: Our Lady preceded Jesus the first time and Our Lady is preceding Jesus the second time for Her Son’s Second Coming. “Mary must be known and openly revealed by the Holy Spirit so that Jesus may be known, loved and served through Her.”8
But the Church teaches not to dwell on the Second Coming of Jesus, etc.
The top producer for ABC 20/20, hosted by Barbara Walters and Hugh Downs, when working on a Caritas production film, The Lasting Sign, with Martin Sheen, in 1988, asked me when we were working on a shot in Medjugorje: “Do you think these apparitions are to prepare for the Second Coming?” I answered, “There is no question that they are.” He then asked, “When?” I answered, “That is the big question: 5 years, 50 years, 500 years? We don’t know. But I tell you, these apparitions are in preparation for the Second Coming of Jesus.” I, a peasant in the pew, stated that 33 years ago when there were no signs like there are today, especially in being able to see now the advancement of an antichrist system. Nobody saw it back then. I saw it clearly because Our Lady made it known to me through Her messages. Why are you blind to it now when it is in your face? Even the Medjugorje world did not buy into the idea that Our Lady’s presence in Medjugorje is for the purpose of crushing the serpent’s head, in preparation for Her Son’s Second Coming. Forty years gone! Now you can stick your finger in Our Lady’s Seven Sorrows and stick your hand in Her heart where the sword pierced.
How do we know we are at the fulfillment of Our Lady’s work through Her apparitions? First, Our Lady said these are the last apparitions, and Our Lady said:
January 25, 1997
Was St. Louis de Montfort in disillusionment? Was he making this up? You have words from an official canonized saint describing everything of what Our Lady is about in Medjugorje, down to the detail of matching the present conditions of the Church and in the world and you do nothing, trusting the works of the USCCB, instead of Our Lady and giving a green light to Her apostles. If you don’t believe the prophecies of St. Louis de Montfort, then you won’t believe in Our Lady of Medjugorje. If you believe de Montfort, you have to believe in Our Lady of Medjugorje.
You of the USCCB have dumped our beautiful nation in the trash heap. We are not going to sit any more in the pew, lethargically, while the world burns down, nation by nation. We are declaring war against your mentalities, not your faculties, because we need the Sacraments, and because we know that even an evil priest still brings Jesus down to the altar. I am not vilifying you; you vilify yourselves. I am expressing the deep concern that I, along with millions, feel of your failures in protecting your flocks.
In Israel, I watched a shepherd tending to his flock. The shepherd followed the sheep. The sheep knew how to seek out the best grass to eat. The shepherd is there to protect them from predators, but the sheep know what to eat. Forty years of rich food for our souls and our shepherds do not open the gate to the pasture to allow us to graze on the food of the Virgin Mary, Her messages of Medjugorje. You have displayed how you lost the power of discernment, not recognizing God’s plans to save the world through the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje. The peasants in the pews have discerned and recognized God’s plan for the world even while being thwarted by our bishops, thwarted through your indifference, silence, unjust condemnations, nonbelief, and lacking the sentiments to understand the needs of your flock.
You, bishops, keep bringing up the abominable Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and say you are being transparent. Move on from the trash heap and go to the answers found in Our Lady. We peasants in the pew are fed up and at the end of our rope. You have proven you are not going to change your mentalities, therefore, the only thing that is going to save you is martyrdom. I say martyrdom because as history has repeatedly shown, when the State comes after the religious, it will go first to get rid of the Shepherds knowing that the sheep will be scattered. You, as bishops, are setting yourselves up for a great reset. You are about to get dethroned. You have created what our nation and other nations are now suffering from, a takeover of the good, by a rebellion of the Left, nurtured by you.
Catholic Joe Biden—Vice President of the United States
Catholic John Roberts—Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
Catholic Sonia Sotomayor—Supreme Court Justice
Catholic Nancy Pelosi—Speaker of the House
and how many others?
All the above “Catholics” abused their positions, putting into law morally abhorrent, murderous and offensive policies that are leading this nation towards Divine Judgment.
While a few of you, bishops, a micro number, made statements against their sinful action, not one bishop has publicly and officially excommunicated any one of the above mentioned. Your silence is an endorsement. Your silence is not only an embarrassment, it is shameful. Your silence is an odor of stench that makes a pig pen smell fragrant. You must now own what is happening in our nation. You propagated and grew the power of the enemies of God and the Church that these enemies use now to kill babies. What is the big deal about marching and carrying a sign? Jesus made a whip and drove the sacrilege out of the Temple. The “Left” is fine with your March for Life marches. Much more should be happening.
You, bishops, try to stop it through the corrupt legal system, instead of stopping it by stating, with all the authority given to you by God as one of His apostles, that abortion will not continue over my dead body. Do you know how many would follow you? But you will never know this because you won’t do it, not for the sin of abortion, or euthanasia, or legalized, perverted, abominable false unions masked as marriage. You were given the power of excommunication, but you won’t use it. You have propagated and grown a leftist rebellion against this once good and holy nation. You have deformed the mentality of millions of people through a perverted “social justice” teaching that is not of Jesus. Your “social justice” mentality contradicts the teachings of Christ because it is a “Socialist” justice. This has damaged the worldwide Church. It is a disease spawned by you. You have created a massive number of people whose mentality is that they believe they are victims. You allowed the Church to decline through your leftist, secular, Communist, “Socialist justice” teachings pervading the Church, instead of teaching “Biblical justice.” This, coupled with your silence, has led to the tragedy we are seeing engulfing our nation today. Silence is one of your greatest sins, hiding behind the USCCB that metes out decrees, resulting in nothing but a declining Church that takes advice from evil actors and adapts to their anti-Christ recommendations.
In December 2020, I wrote in my writing, “What Does Our Lady Have to Do With It? Everything,” regarding your going along with influencers surrounding the USCCB.
“Among the bishops who do voice disapproval of what the left is doing, their protests are generally scant, weak and almost apologetic. They are either afraid of being accused of being political, don’t want to be tied up in controversy, or they sway the Church’s teachings to fit their beliefs. For example, it’s okay for the Democrat Party to slide by the murder of babies because the party is more for alleviating poverty, a skewed doctrine of socialism and of the antichrist, “you will always have the poor.” For decades, the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB) has drunk the Kool-Aid from John Carr, Director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, who worked for decades as the bishop’s conference advisor on issues of justice and peace. Carr began by putting together what has become known as, ‘Faithful Citizenship,’ in 1976, published now for 50 years. Carr convinced our bishops, priests and religious to teach, preach and form the conscience of political life.
“Carr, a product of Georgetown University, directed an initiative on Catholic social thought and public life, much of which set the Church on a progressive (leftist socialist) trajectory. As a result of many advisors like Carr, the Bishop’s Conference prostitutes itself to be a voice for an agenda that aligns itself with the left and away from traditional Catholicism. Using the same tactics as those on the left in government, the advisors come up with programs and documents with foggy, slick, glib language so that the Bishops’ Conference can adopt it without alarming the faithful to how far left the bishops are taking the Church, rejecting many of the Church’s Sacred Teachings.
“On November 7, 2020, in an official statement, that the head of the USCCB, Archbishop of Los Angeles, Jose Gomez, offered Biden congratulations for winning the presidency even though President Trump had not conceded, and with evidence of massive voter fraud being reported before the election was even finished. The confirmation by the USCCB of Biden confirms the preceding words of how the ‘curtains of power’ around the bishops have entrapped many bishops to go along with implementing programs that are socialist, corrupt and destructive to the Catholic Church. Yes, that is on your own USCCB’s website.9 Therefore, it is in the USCCB’s mentalities, teachings and the formation of the flock of Jesus Christ.”10
Even though Carr’s satanic directives are 50 years old and not one bishop condemned it, his heretical thoughts have infiltrated and reign over hundreds of bishops, allowing themselves to be corrupted. Carr recently said in his defense of voting for Joe Biden for president in November 2020:
“There may be times when a Catholic who rejects a candidate’s unacceptable position even on policies promoting an intrinsically evil act may reasonably decide to vote for that candidate for other morally grave reasons.”11
(This statement means if the politician is for abortion, but at the same time is for social justice, you can vote for the murderer.)
What is the fruit of such thinking? Souls languishing and the destruction of the world cultures. Everything is dealt with “nuances”—in other words, stay in the middle, don’t take sides, etc. But bishops respond, “We are pro-life.” Why are Biden, Roberts, Sotomayor, Pelosi and a hundred more Catholics in influential and powerful positions not touched by your testimony? You, bishops, state, like a sissy, we are pro-life. So what? You witness comfort Christianity. Jesus taught convicting Christianity. You have compromised too much for the sake of a false peace that now ends up in war. We, the flock of Jesus, are the casualties. However, we will not go to victimhood because Our Lady has told us injustices always existed.
June 27, 1981
June 25, 1988
Your socialist justice is criminal. satan makes great use of this tool you give to him. The Left vilifies Christians and conservative, praying people. We are the ones they label the haters, the intolerants, the racists and white supremacists. Incredibly, even those who are black, if they are Conservative Christians and supporters of true values, are also labeled racist, intolerant and traitors by the Left, even labeling them as white supremacists, and “turncoats.” To be a Christian is to discriminate. What? Why? Because Jesus discriminated. Jesus, if He walked the earth today, would be labeled a racist and a white supremist (some actually call Him that today) because He called a Canaanite woman not a “dog” but inferred the whole race of Canaanites were dogs.
Christians are to be discriminating, which means: to recognize a distinction, to differentiate. As a Christian you must discriminate in what the culture accepts or rejects, and while the Christian is always ready to accept and love the person, at the same time, he discriminates against one’s open, flagrant sin. Christians, themselves, have to be discriminate of themselves when they are living contrary to God’s Laws and therefore, seek forgiveness for their sins. The good Christian is intolerant of his own sins, yet he is to love self as a creature created by God.
Likewise, we know to hate and be intolerant of the sin but to love the sinner. We are called to convict hearts through our witness. Identifying sin and teaching that certain behaviors degrade mankind, is not discrimination against the person, but against the sin. Again, discrimination is defined as—“the act of distinguishing: the act of observing a difference. Many bishops who say they would accept the sinner but not the sin are lying. How many of you bishops have publicly denounced Biden’s policies and made it clear that Biden’s policies will further protect abortion rights? I can assure you that there are thousands of Catholics who are unaware of this due to your silence.
Every man sins and the sacrament of Confession is the remedy. But when a man flagrantly promotes sin and refuses to repent, you hide behind the USCCB, favoring “nuanced” teachings, so that you do not have to confront the backlash of the rebellious leftists, those both in our culture and those in our own Church. Will this inaction lead you to the grave, worst still, to the gallows? You should have distinguished what Biden is for and, therefore, discriminate and guide the people to vote against Biden. How many bishops condemned Biden’s sin for “marrying” two men in his own home when he was Vice President and blatantly publicized it to the world? How many bishops have announced not to give to him Communion?
Yes, there are a few bishops who did condemn Biden’s actions, and we know who they are because they have made public statements. But it is not enough. It needs to go further; it needs to go to excommunication. You cannot just say, “I don’t accept the sin. I’m not one of those bishops,” as if that is enough. Excommunication is to put the sinner on notice that he is consigned to hell if he refuses to change what he’s been excommunicated for. It is to shake his soul. Excommunication is a last resort act of mercy to lead the stray sheep back to the fold, while giving witness to the rest of the flock that there are grave consequences when one acts against the teachings of the Church. If you said nothing, if you were silent, you are among the bishops who love the sin, and in reality, do not love the sinner. You hate him; otherwise, you would confront him publicly. Will you be excused at your judgment before God if you do not change now and speak out?
A great bishop made Cardinal—Cardinal Robert Sarah states:
“It is a serious responsibility for every bishop to be and to represent the mind of Christ. Bishops who scatter the sheep that Jesus has entrusted to them will be judged mercilessly and severely by God.”11
Even a first grader knows to hate the sin and love the sinner. You bishops, with all the letters of your degrees behind your name, to show how highly intelligent and educated you are, only shows us peasants in the pew that you have been indoctrinated with the poison of intellectualism. Our Lady of Medjugorje said:
December 2, 2007
Never in almost 40 years has Our Lady praised intellectualism.
Our Lady has been teaching and guiding hundreds of millions across the world with Her messages for almost 40 years and not once has the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops given a word to help propagate Her plans and instructions, that will save the whole world, bringing the world to conversion. Our Lady said:
June 25, 2007
In order to stop satan from destroying the world, Our Lady, for years, has been saying:
March 18, 2009
If the bishops were not lost, would there be any reason to pray for them not to get lost?
May 2, 2011
You don’t have to help shepherds to be alongside their flock with fullness of heart unless they are not alongside us, with fullness of heart. I have been through five different bishops while growing the largest Medjugorje mission in the world, producing millions of pieces of materials about Medjugorje. After one particular meeting with my third bishop, I asked him for a blessing. He refused the blessing. When I asked him why, he responded, “I don’t know how you will use it.” Thirty days later, I was in the Vatican with Pope John Paul II discussing Medjugorje, my mission, the Caritas Community and our life. Without asking, the Holy Father gave me a blessing with his thumb on my forehead. He then put his hands on my head in a second blessing for my family. I knelt down before him and he blessed me a third time for the community. John Paul was spiritually awake. He understood the conversion of our work. This is exactly what this writing is about—to awake what is asleep in the bishops and, thereby, wake up the parishes to massive conversion.
September 2, 2011
Bishops, are you worthy representatives of Our Lady’s Son? If you are, why does Our Lady say, “I’m praying for you that you may be worthy?”
July 2, 2016
Yes, Our Lady said never, ever to judge you. That was stated at the beginning of this writing. Your judgement is reserved only for God. If we, the peasants living Our Lady’s messages refrain from your judgement, what is stated here is to spotlight how and why you are off track and to state to you what we need. You have failed the flock and the Holy Virgin Mary’s plans brought here by the Queen of Peace.
As bishops, you have also fallen for satan’s building oneness through centralization. Centralization amalgamates both the Light and the dark together. Globalization is the goal, both in the state and in the Church. It is a diabolical plan that will institute a universal, minimal income for everyone, no private property, a new capitalism where governments go away, and “corporate capitalism” prevails. It is not a free market. Law will give way to regulations standardized across the world. Globalism is a perfect incubator to birth an antichrist system. Many in the Church hierarchy have bought into it. The world governments have bought into it. Our Lady is here to dismantle it. And you fall for it.
Centralization, at this moment, gives great power to few and does not distinguish between Light and dark. Light, therefore, is eclipsed and darkness prevails. God, on the contrary, separates the Light vs. the dark for unity. How unity? Light will draw many to the Light, “seeing how they love one another.” The USCCB shines light upon “the Bidens’”—bringing no one to conversion. All the while the peasants in the pew grow more discontent. Go ahead and have your stupid meetings while the peasants are starving to death from a lack of spiritual food. Having pity for the sheep, Jesus sends His Mother with all the answers needed, but you, instead, smother Her plans with your own plans and proclamations that don’t work. We don’t need any more conferences. We need real men. Man Up. Stand Up. We do not need calmed-down eunuchs. Are you offended by this? Then prove it to be a false statement. A real bishop would not be offended, with a girly attitude, “I am so offended.” He would be convicted. That is what you need—conviction. For example, we need men willing to forget a stupid position of being “nuanced” towards elections when it is clear that Biden is a bad actor, a very bad actor. Just shout it out. Watch the flock, flock around you! Will you? Many have lost hope in you, but not in Our Lady.
Bishops, your greatest sin is that you have rejected Our Lady’s plans to save us from the prevailing darkness we are now experiencing. Many of you, who have been at the helm of the Church these almost 40 years, have been there for at least some period of Our Lady’s apparitions. Every square inch of the world is under a jurisdiction of a diocese, underneath the authority of a bishop. For four decades, the world has denigrated into a boiling cauldron of stench under your watch, as already said, but necessary to repeat. Your answer is to meet at a conference to talk and eat, talk and eat, talk and eat. Are you fasting on bread and water twice a week as Our Lady said is necessary? Are you doing nine-day bread and water fasts several times a year? We, in our Community, do so. We have our adolescents, even our children, participate with no complaining, but with joy! (Yes, nine days!) Are you praying three hours a day? Many across the world are doing this because Our Lady said we must fast on bread and water at least two times weekly and pray three hours every day.
A warning to you bishops of the United States and of the world: You are going to enter into a most severe depth of inescapable lamentation that many of you will wish you were dead. Why? Because you will come to know, through the first three secrets from God, foretold by the Virgin Mary of Medjugorje over these almost 40 years, that Our Lady was truly present in the world and you did not accept Her. These secrets are coming soon. How many millions of souls were sent to perdition, that could have been saved if you had listened these four decades to what Our Lady has been saying and declared: “My diocese is open to the Queen of Peace. Propagate Her messages.”
Our Lady’s words, have been telling the people of the world, “listen to me, I will teach you.” If you, as bishops, ordered every parish in your diocese open to Medjugorje, every Catholic school open to Medjugorje, every Catholic university and institution open to Medjugorje, you would experience and see a natural grace, a tsunami flood of conversion over your diocese that will bloom in a way you cannot imagine. But no, your indifference, your tokenism of Our Lady’s apparitions, putting the USCCB’s agendas over God’s plans to save the world has prevailed. Surrounded by the curtains of power that control you and keep you in fear, you allow the killing of Our Lady’s plans. You blind yourselves from the reality that is right in front of you.
For example, in 2011, it was reported that there were 106 Catholic colleges that were “abominable lifestyle sin friendly.” These universities promote and protect abominable relationships and perverted false unions masked as marriage as in Sodom. These colleges/institutions are in your dioceses. Are you guilty of hiding behind the argument, “well its under another’s religious orders jurisdiction?” They are in your diocese! Man up. Shut them down or strip “Catholic” from their names and make your judgement known. This anti-Catholic ideology is rampant on our Catholic University campuses. You cannot use the excuse, “I didn’t know that.” Then how do I, a layman, know it? Get rid of the curtain of power around you and don’t listen to them. You run the diocese, not others. Build a research team outside of your office to feed you truth. If you do not escape the curtains of power around you, you will not thrive. Get out of the bishop conferences. Run your diocese with the boldness of Jesus. Say what you know you have to say.
The USCCB’s agendas are riddled with what and why the Church is in decline. You won’t open to Medjugorje, but you let Socialism and Communism, prosper within the Church. If you do not understand that sentence, “Socialism and Communism in the Church,” you are reading the wrong books and listening to the wrong people, such as the Maryknoll Missionaries who propagate “socialist justice” in their magazines that can be found in many diocesan offices and waiting areas. The Maryknoll Missionaries have, for many decades, openly and shamefully defended and encouraged in the Church, communist and socialist mentalities and philosophies, teaching “victimization” instead of what Jesus taught in how to win over your oppressors. Jesus was THE VICTIM. And through the faulty “socialist justice” doctrines taught in the Church, and all educational systems, both secular and religious, tolerance for any views that are not “sanctioned” by the State will lead to “cleansing” society of mentalities that are considered dangerous to society. What that means is if we don’t stand up NOW for our convictions, many more will end up persecuted and martyred. But where are our shepherds who will lead the Church to stand up against such threats? Missing in action.
As to the Maryknoll Missionaries, you bishops lend support to them simply by your silence, as well as allowing their magazines in diocesan offices. But no Medjugorje information can be in your offices. In fact, God forbid if Medjugorje material is found in the parishes, which God has not forbidden; but you have by your indifference, silence or by outright banning it. All the while Our Lady of Medjugorje has requested for nearly 40 years to spread Her messages to everyone. This is far more scandalous than the great scandal of abomination that has entered and plagued the Church for the past two decades. We don’t want to hear any more about Cardinal McCarrick. Quit the PR of “look at us, we are transparent.” Stop bringing it up. It is nauseating. Move on. Move on to Our Lady, to Medjugorje. Leave what is trash in the garbage can. If you had opened to Our Lady, She would have swept clean the mess you allowed. It would have been gone a long time ago because Our Lady came on the daily scene in 1981 warning you.
August 29, 1982
Concerning reports that “the apparitions” have divided the priests in Hercegovina:
This writing about what future awaits you, bishops, is not to condemn you, but to convict you. You have but a very short time to change your course by choosing to open every parish, school and Catholic institution in your dioceses to the Queen of Peace, Her messages and Her plans to save the world or be prepared for martyrdom, each and every one of you. Our Lady said:
December 2, 2015
“…that they may have strength…” Stop for a moment. Think. Reflect. Contemplate these words. If the shepherds, who are the apostles, had strength, if they were “bridges of salvation,” then why would Our Lady say the Church is suffering and needs apostles? Again, Our Lady follows saying again:
“The Church needs apostles…to do great works…”
Then Our Lady says, “…it needs you…”
Then Our Lady says “…you,…” saying “…my apostles…,”
referencing the laity, the peasants in the pews,
which means the apostolic apostles, the shepherds, are not doing the job of being “…bridges of salvation…”
Therefore, Our Lady is here to raise up a body of apostles from the laity to rebuild the Church, as St. Louis de Montfort prophesied. The bishops have failed. Forty years have almost passed since the first apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje. Many bishops recognize the major magnitude of the six apparitions of Fatima, and yet have not grasped that every day, an apparition on the scale of a Fatima apparition is taking place in Medjugorje. It is not even put in second place, but way down the pole. Your nonbelief, nonchalant and noncommittal indifference of attitude is all to your demise. You cannot and will not get that time back. Again, how many went to hell in these decades because you didn’t give them the medicine from Heaven that would have healed their souls instead of the spiritual diseases that sent them to hell? Will you be judged with severity from God, mercilessly, as Cardinal Sarah said and which merits to be repeated:
“It is a serious responsibility for every bishop to be and to represent the mind of Christ. Bishops who scatter the sheep that Jesus has entrusted to them will be judged mercilessly and severely by God.”12
I’m a “podunk” ditch digger with an education qualified by the following letters behind my name: 72 D’s, 13 F’s—achieved all in one year….flunked third grade, yet I have been educated 38 years through the Queen of Peace’s School of Medjugorje, but I speak of your lethargic, pathetic indifference, your incompetence as Christ’s apostles, lovers of the robes and of the limelight, prideful men who misuse your power, or do not use your power for good. Do you grade yourselves through the covering of the USCCB with a grade A+? Are these words too harsh? This is an observation of almost 40 years of study, of looking for you to act and yet you do nothing but let the Church suffer and decline under you.
Yes, there are some good bishops, but they are an endangered species. And yet, they have not gone all out to explode Medjugorje’s Queen of Peace and Her messages throughout every corner of their diocese. How do we know a good bishop? He is one who listens to Heaven when Heaven is speaking. If you consider yourself a good bishop, don’t interfere or even try to define Medjugorje. Just let it open up with a super green light in your dioceses. Give it freedom to propagate. Our Lady will guide it. Watch the explosion of conversions and the loyalty that will grow towards you and towards your office. It will literally explode as well. Along with a great many conversions. But, BEWARE and be ready for division and the attack from satan on every parish. I state it will happen. Why? Because Our Lady said:
January 28, 1987
Again, we do not judge you. Our Lady made it clear that Jesus would judge you, just as Cardinal Sarah stated. Our Lady said:
March 2, 2019
I and all the peasants in the pew forgive you and we pray for mercy for you because when you wake up, you will have realized in great horror that you missed the time of Mary. Our Lady said:
August 25, 2013
Bishops, remember what David Barton stated about “the cowards and the fearful.” He said, this is the first group that God sends to hell because of what they didn’t do. (Revelation 21:8) Medjugorje is running out of time. It’s time to lift all the restrictions that suppress Medjugorje. Is Medjugorje approved. Yes, 100%. Medjugorje is believed by hundreds of millions of people who have been profoundly converted, and who have changed their lives for the better. It is approved by the people scattered across the whole world, Sensus Fidelium (approved by the people.) No more debate.

I finally saw this. I wholeheartedly approve and pray for the church, the shepherds, the peasants and our unworthy selves. I pray the bishops wake “before” it is to late. We must ALL pray, fast, and convert. Thank God and Our Lady for these messages and period of grace.
Thank you AFoM. You do not mince words in this time of terrible deception(s). We are very likely under attack with biological weaponry, the extent of which is still an unknown. There is much evil being conducted in our cities under the guise of racial justice which is unjust and criminal and shrugged aside by progressives, governors and mayors as venting frustrations. The secular media just thwarted an election by their complicitness with the leftist coup attempts (for 4 yrs.) to oust a real champion of pro life causes and religious freedom, President Trump. The facts that State national elections were rigged due to the compromised software being used and the nonverification abilities to enforce the tampering of hundreds if thousands of illegitimate ballots in battleground states is a scandal to our democracy, or whats left of it. Further states such as Pennsylvania did not adhere to their own State election laws ON the books. All this was poo-poo’d in the follow up coverage by the bought out mainstream coverage of the post election. Americans had every right to converge on the nation’s capitol to protest the election supposed results. All the while socail conservative voices continue to be suppressed and outright attacked. It takes a voice in the wilderness to break through all the deceptions and false leadership, a modern John the Baptist. Thank you AFoM and the entire Caritas Community for these many years of testimony and prayers for a nation gone awry but being portrayed falsely by those who would set humanism above the fear of offending God Almighty. May Our Lady’s Peace reign in the hearts of all who accept her messages. Especially in this time for our Bishops to take courage and stand united in an unprecedented time of deception. May the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart reign in Us in this time of Grace from above. Our Lady Queen of Peace Intercede for our Nation and All who envolk they aid. Amen.
I am a cradle Catholic although like some, I was no schooled in Catholic school beyond 3rd grade. I was, however educated by my grandparents in the Catholic faith. There was Never any hesitation, in telling us “young people”, what was demanded, required or expected from us with regards to our moral behavior, in our Catholic faith. It came to Life in my teens…..being in high school in the ‘60’s There was an Explosion of Freedom. If it makes you happy do it; It’s my body, no one can tell me what to do with it. Teachers hands were tied as far as discipline went and disposable marriages the norm rather than the rarity. Despite this onslaught of confusion our Catholic faith was our foundation. Our Strength. Our Security. Unchanged. WE WANT THIS BACK! The laws based on Our God given 10 Commandments. One Nation Under God, Indivisible with Liberty and Justice for All
Thank you from the botom of my heart for your courage in standing up to these men. It gives me the courage to be more bold in my faith. Bless you.
Thank you Friend of Medjugorje! My husband and I have been wrestling with this for quite some time. Now more than ever, we have been seeing greater signs of complacency and indifference. When I recently asked a priest why we are not hearing more from the pulpit in regard to moral issues, the Pope’s opposite teachings and examples, etc., I was told that Pope Francis says that the homilies need to focus on the gospel and bring the people peace. Also, I was told that they have to be careful on how they approach moral matters. Why? They were not careful telling me the truth when I was being educated. Like it or not, the truth was told and morals were clearly defined. Your writing is with accuracy and aligns with what my husband and I have been seeing. With the complacency at hand, we are now dealing with a much bigger mess. Truth needs to be clearly revealed NOW. There is no reason to pacify the Pope’s erroneous teachings (nor anyone else). Truth does not sway; it must be told with vigor! It must be followed by biblical teachings, by the One True Doctrine of Faith! We pray for God’s mercy to be upon us and for many conversions to take place. We pray for our shepherds and for clarity in truth – for our eyes and ears to be opened, the fog removed leaving only the One True Faith! We pray for them to lead us on the path of righteousness via the Bible’s teachings. Our Lady reaffirms this in Her messages. As you have mentioned before that if Our Lady of Medjugorje is the last stop, we do not have time to evaluate it before the period of Grace is over and the critical nature of the messages are upon us. What will this hurt??? Obviously, there is so much evidence (even agreed by scientists in regard to the supernatural involvement); there is so much love, peace and conversion. The enemy is at hand and we must carefully discern. However, by now, we can see that the enemy can not bring such peace and love as has been bestowed upon the people via Our Lady and her messages in Medjugorje. If this is of God, it will not leave us; however, the time of Grace is upon us and will not be here forever. And so far, 40 years have remained. Let us not ignore Our Lord and Our Lady any further. We can plainly see that not acknowledging it for what it is has certainly kept our country from being a better place, not to mention the salvation of souls that could have transpired. Let us not wait any longer. May the Divine Intervention of Our Lord and Our Lady be upon us! God bless you all and thank you for your love and genuine commitment to Our Lord and Our Lady!
May we see the true light you have given us and awaken the people to the lies of leaders and corrupt doing so much harm to people and the Nation. Praying in small groups and Holy hours before the blessed Sacrament and we are getting converts as very good lay people helping to convert. God bless and have Mercy on the USA and end murder of our unborn and have respect for life again. thank you for all the truthful information.
Eloquently written! Two sets of books! i.e. two versions of the Twelve Commandments? First version for the peasant flock. Second version for the church hierarchy and politicians.
Joan A reminder to all us peasants in the pews who have been to Medjugorje…We must live the messages and bring Medjugorje HERE!!!! God bless you, and the Caritas Community, for speaking TRUTH and witnessing to all with your lives.
Extraordinary piece. I was happy to see that the bishops responded by criticizing Biden, but until they act it’s only words. The bishops unfortunately aren’t the only ones that are guilty. So is the head of the Catholic Church, our Pope. May God hear the prayers of the faithful and may our Lady continue to help us.
Thank you for always speaking the truth. Our nation is certainly in a very bad spot as most Catholics believe what is “preached” to them instead of what is divinely inspired in them as truth. It is a sad day for our nation that we have to endure Joe Biden’s presidency and all the harm that it will bring but with your voice out there we will have a beacon of light to follow. May God bless you and everyone at Caritas for putting your lives on notice for all of us.
It is truly a shame that our bishops and church did not educate their flock about their responsibility as Catholics to vote in accordance with Jesus’ teaching and church teachings. A few in my extended family voted for Biden and I was unable to convince them otherwise because they had been indoctrinated by the media and untruths spoken in our culture. If the priests and bishops had done their job and guided the flock, many would have voted responsibly but silence gave permission to vote for Biden. And the silence continues to allow him to “act” like a Catholic, attend mass and receive Communion. He and the other people in high office should be excommunicated without hesitation. They are a disgrace to the Catholic faith. Thank God we have a Friend of Medjugorje to give all of us a voice and speak what we hold in our hearts. We must continue this message and share with all we know. We are so grateful to have our Holy Mother with us to teach us and guide us. Let us pray as she says for the shepherds. We need them to hear us and lead us. Thank you Friend of Medjugorje and God bless you and the community.
While reading this and based on the “Friend of Medjugorje’s” proclamation that he is not a highly educated man, It is inconceivable to not be aware that The Holy Spirit wrote these words though him. The eloquence of this statement is sublime (and long over due).
My wife and I are very strong Conservatives and strong believers in the Catholic Church. We have followed the visionaries since the 90’s because of Friend of Medjugorje. We were very disappointed with our Catholic bishops supporting President Biden knowing how he feels about abortion and certain marriages. For Biden to want unity in America and killing 11,000 jobs on Day 1 was insane, un-American. He has already signed over 25 Executive Orders in two days. We pray for Biden to wake up before America destroys itself. May God have mercy on us. God bless Friend of Medjugorje and Caritas. Stay strong.
praise be Jesus! It is about time someone stood up and said like it is. May God bless you. Mother pray for us.
It breaks my heart so much to know that there is now a President in the White House who hates the gift of God babies. I try to do as much as I can to help the little ones by praying for them, signing petitions and helping friends who want an a b o r t I o n. I hate the word and would happily do what I could in excess of what I have already done if it were possible. If I lived in America it might be easier but where I live it’s more difficult. I just know it breaks my heart now that Trump has left and the babies no longer have a champion they have a killer in the White House now ????????????
Beautifully written. Prayer and fasting, as requested by our Blessed Mother will be our salvation if we only follow her requests.I have been to Medjugorje twice, and have been blessed to have been present during two apparitions. Highlights of my life. This is the eleventh hour, and It’s now or never for conversion of souls. The Bishops need to lead their flocks. We, the believers, will support them when they follow God’s commandments. Don’t be afraid. Lead by example. Many will follow.
Ever notice that those with the courage to give a STRONG Homily – are the RETIRED PRIESTS, filling in for a pastor. They no longer fear the feed back of those upset by THE TRUTH !!! For some reason I have admired COURAGE !! The courage of ” Students for Life “, a good example ,whom I donate to and thank God for I!! I have found that you need to Pray ” ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT” for the courage – to do God’s will for you !!!
Right on. The Bishops should tell their sheep Joe Biden & Nancy Pelosi are excommunicated from the Catholic Church. In 1991 I visited Medjugorje & returned to Church after being away for 15 years. What is wrong with these Bishops!!
Decades of discernment as clear as day and the fruit of prayer and fasting. Truth is truth and light is light. This is not just a USA problem. Thank you for your strength and leadership. God bless the community of Caritas.
Thank you for such a justified upbraiding. We should have taken these men to task years ago. Biden has just refunded International planned parenthood, and committed our tax dollars to pay for it. satan has surely taken over control of our country, but we both know that God is stronger than satan. Thank you for giving the bishops fodder to chew and I hope and pray that they accept this as positive feedback that they have earned. May God have mercy on them. Now I understand much better why our churches are losing membership and financial support. May God bless you and the family of Caritas. Larry
If I were a bishop, I’d sure take another look at my actions (or inaction) and consider immediate changes. Well done and well expressed. Even I understood all of it. Our Lady must be happy with you as her Apostle. Biden has now reversed President Trump’s protections against abortion and is making tax payers pay the cost. God help us. I’ve set on church boards several times, charged with the task of determining the cause of people leaving the church and not contributing financially or morally toward the welfare of the Church. You’ve opened my eyes and i feel more prepared for the future if I’m ever asked to sit on a board again. God bless you, and the family of Caritas. Larry
Great writing! Exactly to the point! Fasting and praying for all shepherds. Thank you A Friend of Medjugore and Caritas Community for all you do for Our Lady of Medjugore Queen of Peace.
I wanted to cheer and shout. Exactly what they need to hear. I am waiting for action from them. I am so tired of hearing about their meetings that mean nothing to us. So we’ll spoken. Thank you. Lead us on, i cannot wait.
Thank you once again, and again, and yet again, for your inspired writings. ‘Way back about 1960 (when I spent a few years in a Catholic seminary) the prophetic word was making the rounds that “the time of the laity was upon us” and the standard (deliberately innocuous) interpretation given was that the laity was then to be given more activity in ecclesiastical functions (this because at that day it was very true that most lay people left everything up to the clergy, even Catholic education of children). We all know about what the ever-present satanic influence did to this concept (for only one example, extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist); in fact, I have seen this concept in print in a church document as “extra ordinary ministers” and I still see priests sitting down or standing behind the altar while others distribute the Eucharist. OK. We are where we are. But back to the prophetic word: I myself did not realize at the time that what was actually meant and prophetic was that the majority of the Catholic clergy would soon come to abdicate their responsibilities, and that Our Lady would be right there to fill up the gap by using the peons in the pews. It’s time to put my name and address on the line as being 120% behind this writing. – Murph
Nice going Terry sounds like truth to me especially the part that struck me they never opened up the churches to our Lady of medjugorje! Praise be to Jesus, our Lady Queen of Peace be with us protect us and pray for us thank you for your Fiat
At Mass last weekend, the priest, who is traditional and one of two beautiful priests at our parish in Baton Rouge, read the “Prayer for Our Government” written in 1791 by the 1st Bishop in America Bishop John Carroll, whose prayer to God was to endow the gifts of the Holy Spirit on our government and government leaders. Immediately following that prayer from Bishop John Carroll, the priest read a letter written by our Bishop of Baton Rouge to all church parishes, reinforcing the use of face masks and social distancing!!! I exclaimed out loud “What a contrast!” Where are our shepherds, O Lord?
Yes a fire needs to be set!! mary has come to quite us with the WORD of GOD!!
Thank you Queen Virgin Mother for giving FOM, the grace to speak & witness the TRUTH of the HOLY TRINITY.
An amazing piece. I learned so much from this writing. It saddened me when NY passed the late-term abortion law and the law makers stood and applauded with not retribution from the church. Also, when California passed laws favorable to pedophiles with the church remaining silent. All I could think of was Sodom and Gomorrah right here in our country.
THANK YOU! I felt like getting up and cheering that someone finally said it as it is. I hope and pray that Our Lady cleans out the hierarchy… they are doing such a disservice to the flock. Their duplicity and “nuanced” approach is sickening. So thank you for clearly stating the truth. May Our Lady and Our Lord bless you and keep you and give you peace.. and give us wisdom and peace as we fight the good fight – without our bishops. THEY are the problem!!!
I could not believe that our bishops had gone so low until a friend sent me this Facebook message from Bishop John Stowe this afternoon. I was sick at heart. To speak about My Biden as a noble and honorable man when he promotes abortion and [abominable] marriages, it’s hypocrisy!!! He goes against everything our Church believes! He promotes sin against the people, the Commandments, against God!! I am worried for our Church, for our nation, for the souls of our leaders!!!
I just went to confession on Saturday and I confessed to our priest that I am currently helping my daughter. She has to live with me at the moment, but she brought her fiance because they had no where to live (they lost their jobs). I wanted to confess my part in contributing to their mortal sin. The priest told me that it was OK because this is the culture! I asked, “But does GOD say this is ok?” I totally see what a FOM is saying. I am so grateful that my mother visited Medjugorje years ago. I am new to this website and group but I am learning so much. I plan to print this and give it to our Bishop and priest. I printed the previous writings from FOM and gave my priest the book They Fired the First Shot. I really hope he reads it.
God Bless you FOM. A true message of love and a convicting message. Reminds me of many of Our Lady’s messages. ( September 2 2013)
Yes the church hierarchy has failed us. With the prophesies from Fatima and with Medjugorje. I see a revival in other Christian denominations but not here in our Catholic Church. Our flock lacks leadership. As Mother Mary continues to tell us pray, pray pray.
We have followed Our Lady’s Messages from the beginning and have presented ourselves in Medjugorje. With a strong and fervent belief in Her Messages our lives have been changed. We, too, are disgusted and dismayed at the lack of leadership from our Bishops and Cardinals. Our fervent, daily prayer is for the conversion of hearts, salvation of souls, and an end to the lukewarmness which exists in our Church and its members. May god have Mercy on us and our country!
Dear A Friend of Medjugorje, This is a must read for all the bishops with little time that is left and that they may change their course of direction to allow Our Lady to help bring about many souls to conversions. Your conviction and the truth of this writing should be an eye-opener for majority of the bishops who needs to be spiritually awaken. We the sheep in the pews are demanding for a change to remove all darkness and false conflicting actions by your inactions and by our sinful ways we have allowed darkness to infiltrate the church. We continue to pray for you in hopes you heed the warnings. We are all sinners, no judgment but only pleas, for many souls are at stake. Let Our Lady guide us all! Thank you A Friend of Medjugorje (community of Caritas & Birmingham) for living Our Lady’s messages and helping us all along the way to strive to live and imitate into our way of living. We love Our Lady and Mother and give ourselves under Her care to be her extended hands. Glory and thanks be to God in this time of Grace by Her presence and guidance. Thank you Blessed Mother for guiding us for 40 years! May God bless us all! With love and prayers, CC of Texas
God bless you Friend of Medjugorje and the Community of Caritas. Tirelessly, you work, pray unceasingly, and strictly fast according to Our Lady’s instructions. Our Shepherds’ fasts are a joke in comparison. I am so grateful and thankful for your presence in my life. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you. I surrender myself and my will to Jesus, my Lord & Savior. I have much to atone for but with God’s guidance, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the Eucharist, I will be armed with the resolve to follow Our Blessed Lady’s Messages and follow her instructions. Thank you so much, Susan
Praying and fasting
No we are not to judge, but we can be fruit inspectors! Thanks Friend of Medjugorje for doing just that. Heard on Truth Broadcasting – they have 10 radio stations in these states: NC, Utah, Iowa, Virginia. Contact them and ask them to read this letter over the air. I did. So many Catholics INO on all levels of government profane our faith to our embarrassment. We’ll be doing another 9-day bread and water fast and 3-hour Eucharistic adoration. I had the grace of 3 hours of prayer today, but this is not always the case.
Extraordinary!!!Brave and clear as it is will print it and go to my Bishop to give him a copy.If he does not speaks english will offer him to translate in any form that would be needed.We must stop being cowards and letting our shepherds to be so!!! This false pandemic is taking so many out of discernment and Our Lady´s messages are needed more than ever to convict and convert.Thanks a lot to A Friend of Medjugorje for this writing.
Thank you, Friend of Medjugorje. It needed to be said. Unfortunately, they won’t even bat an eye! They’re only hope is for a sincere conversion at the time of the Warning which, by the way, is just around the corner. We all need to be strong now. Get to confession…pray, pray, pray! Peace to all here.
Everything I read is 1000% true. God help our shepherds. They want to be popular among the people rather then say it like it is. Sin is sin no matter how you slice it.
Thank you for writing this. I agree with every word.
Our Lady definitely spoke of politics at Fatima, she said consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. First Fridays First Saturdays. Our Lady obviously is political. And yes Our Lady is a Trump supporter. If these people say otherwise it is because they are drinking fluoride in the water. They might not be red pilled. Q is totally Christian. I believe the Mother of God is on the side of Trump. It’s obvious if you have heard of the Weiner laptop that God himself has stopped the evil one from the HRC 3rd Obama administration. It’s so plain that the Left is deceived.
Thank you! Excellent! I have never understood why such silence from our church. May we listen to her words and our church open the doors to the Queen of Peace. Mother Mary be a mother to me now.
Thank you FOM for your writings. I feel all are called with a special purpose, we are all soldiers of Christ and our Rosary is our sword.
Thank you for another great writing! I am going to send this out to several priests I know. We need Our Lady and Medjugorje more than ever!
As I have mentioned before: “I’m worried about my judgement day for transgressions that I was not aware are sins. How much more the Bishops should be worried, they have received all the teachings of Jesus!! Those of whom much is given, much is expected”. I hope that this writing is sent to ALL the Bishops in the USA. They have failed us miserably. May God have mercy on them. I will print this out and send to my Bishop & it will probably be read by a subordinate and then thrown away. I might believe them when they divest of all their trappings, especially certain Cardinals of which I am thinking. No more platitudes, DO SOMETHING CONCRETE. Stop pillorying our beloved priests who do speak out!! Excommunicate James Martin also, he is a wolf in sheeps’ clothing. Many more also! I could say more but I would just get “worked up” all the more and FOM says it much better than me. May Jesus have mercy on us! Our Lady Queen of Peace pray for us.
I just sent this text message to several friends: WOW ?! Friend of Medjugorje wrote and released a letter to the Bishops this morning. Someone in the comment section mentioned this podcast of February 02/2019! I just finished listening. Remember St. Francis thought he was to rebuild the physical Church and then he realized that it was the internal Church that needed rescuing?! My thoughts after reading FOM’s letter and listening to this podcast gives me the sense that it is not a coincidence that we have a Francis in the Church that is attempting to dismantle the teachings of the Catholic Church. Our Lady is here to help us to renew the Church and she is using FOM, as a NEW Francis to counteract the destruction in order to help her reach her Apostles; Apostles Of the End Times to renew the Church!!! What do you all think?
Dear Friend of Medjugorge, you have given us an example of standing up for your convictions, and yet respectfully, not judgingly. May we all be able to stand up without fear. Lord, the next time I am faced with danger for Your sake, let me remember that You are faithful to reward Your people, no matter how much I may fear. Amen Isn’t that the definition of courage! “God’s Word….is the…light of common sense.” December 2, 2007. Matthew 13:23 “And the one on whom seed was sown on good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.” Medjugorge, Caritas of Alabama is holy ground, I believe!! January 25, 1997 “…this time is my time…” Thank you Heavenly Father for the many gifts of Graces through your son and His beautiful Mother.
Of the original 12 bishops – the 12 apostles – which one did not suffer martyrdom? Of the original 12 bishops – the 12 apostles – which one stood at the foot of the cross with Our Sorrowful Mother -Our Lady, knowing that at any minute he might be arrested and crucified with Our Lord? The answer to both questions is St. John. 10 apostles ran away in fear, one ran out and hanged himself. Stand with Our Lady at the foot of the Cross! AFTER Pentecost, the 12 bishops boldly proclaimed the Gospel, and later 11 suffered martyrdom. Bishops, do not wait until after the Warning to boldly proclaim Our Lady of Medjugorje.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have called a Spade a Spade and rightfully so! I will continue to pray for the Bishops that they will be moved to action by the Holy Spirit as you have been all these years! Biden & Pelosi MUST be excommunicated! So many in the pews see this, yet the Bishops refuse to use the power given to them by Almighty God! I pray they heed this message! YOU, and a few holy priests, are what has kept me faithful to the Catholic faith all these years! I have longed for the church of my youth, and a world where morality and truth within the church were what convicted sinners. When we lost that, we lost the ability to see our own sins. Bishops included! God has given his Mother to us and She has given You to us! God Bless you, your family and the Community of Caritas!
WILL THE BISHOPS EVEN HAVE THE BACKBONE TO READ THIS THROUGH??? Perhaps it could be read to them in the confessional…Thank you AFM for writing the words on many, many peoples’ minds. May they ring from our lips to the shepherd’s ears! May God have mercy on us all. Thank you Caritas! All my love to Our Lady and to you!
My heart has been so very heavy for so long as I have watched the downfall of the church and I feel like a prisoner for my strong warrior feelings for Our Lady. I thank you so much for standing up to the Bishops for their retreatment to safeness!! I keep thinking about how did the people who were in the crowds shouting Crucify Him on Friday and waving their palm branches the Sunday before, feel as the veils of hatred were lifted and they finally realized what they had done. We are right back there!! May God protect us to do what is needed to save souls.
Amen….. That says it all
Amen! Perfectly explained. Spot on with the explanation of bishops and priests (our shepherds) regarding their tepidness toward Medjugorje and their political correctness; you have described the anger of all believers perfectly. I have always felt conflicted about having negative thoughts of someone holy, because we are taught it is a sin to say anything bad about a priest, pope or bishop. However, it is hard not to when they do not follow the commandments themselves or make excuses (in my opinion) for those who would help them with power or image. I agree, Biden and Pelosi should be be excommunicated until they repent for their vile words and actions. Thank you!
God bless you and the Blessed Mother of Jesus. I look forward to your readings always. I wish I could make a trip to Medjugorje but it will only be in my prayers. Please keep praying for all of us. Thank you ?? ????
Thank you for your leadership in addressing our Shepherds. I wholeheartedly agree. Most of them have missed the time of their visitation. As a governing body, they have utterly failed us and firmly placed us in the cattle cars of the anti-human, antiChrist globalist agenda, with which Biden is absolutely tied. The Red Dragon of communism has spread its errors over the whole world and is preparing to enslave us physically in addition to the spiritual enslavement of confused catechesis (ie, “socialist justice”) we have been enduring so long under the USCCB. Keep fighting. I unite my prayers and longings to yours.
The Friend of Medjugorje is wise in this writing about the church and the bishop’s. We are all sinner’s and in need of repentance and forgiveness. I left the Roman Catholic Church right around the time the Blessed Virgin began appearing at Medjugorje for reasons I don’t care to divulge. Unfortunately, the bishop’s have bought into what the world has to offer rather than buying into the Word of God. I may be way off base when I say this, but I firmly believe that the reason none of the so called “Catholics” who are in power in Washington D.C. is they are too powerful and the bishop’s are afraid of losing their 501c3 tax exempt status. All of us, no matter which religious denomination we belong to, need to focus on God and what an important role the Blessed Virgin Mary has played and continues to play in all of our lives. I pray that the bishop’s come to their senses and believe that the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin are real and that they allow those sitting in the pews to come to know God’s work in the world today. Blessings on your ministry.
Wow! I am so happy to have read this. Finally a dumb slap in our faces to wake us up. It is all our faults that we are are asleep in the pews. Because we let our Bishops and Priests not speak of, or to get us all involved in the hardest of subjects. We all need courage to defend our God given human rights to life and liberty. Have no fear because our God always near.??? Thank You to Mary Our loving Mother.
[b]WOW! This is AWESOME! Yes, I am copying and sending this to my local Cardinal, former President Of the USCCB. Now is the time, backed by Our Lady through much, much prayer, penance, fasting and Her messages to show moral courage, No Matter What! Thank you Caritas and Terry Colafrancesco for your faithful witness and convictions in this our great time of need! Thank you for your witness and tirelessly getting out those Great Messages. I am now clinging to them like a life preserver and through the Holy Rosary am now beginning to find peace amid sooo much confusion. This question has been on my mind lately, given all this horrible news of evil seeming to prevail everywhere, even in Holy Mother the Church. What does a Faithful Catholic do, where do I go, when even some of my seemingly faithful Catholic friends and my family, too seem to just lay down, lick their wounds, roll over and say, Well, it’s “God’s Will” Let’s obey, put our mask on and go along to get along hoping and praying for better times. [/b] [b]Our Lady’s messages say different, as does this writing. [/b] [b]Thanks for giving this poor soul a sense of direction and sooo much peace and joy! [/b] [b]I am not afraid of whatever the future holds because in the end, “Mary’s Immaculate Heart Will Triumph”[/b] [b]God’s Love To Caritas, Our Lady’s First Apostles[/b]
Amen. Also, I know of so many Catholics getting the corona vaccine, that is tainted with aborted babies and has medals in it. ( We Have the Moderna one here) Have had no direction or instruction from our bishop or priests. When I try to tell our friends, they don’t believe me.
Thank you David. People can get those broadcasts here: https://www.medjugorje.com/radio-wave/past-shows/959-Our-Lady-s-Here-Because-What-s-Coming-Out-of-the-Church.html and https://www.medjugorje.com/radio-wave/past-shows/983-Fables-Bipolar-Church-Leaders.html.html
AMEN and likewise for the bishops of Australia!
“Blind to your wrong” and deaf to the Holy Spirt it seems most shepherds seem to be . We all are on the via Dolorosa our Shepard Christ our Redeeming King went before us. As a lamb led to the slaughter . His example we are to follow. Three crosses on that hill our Savior with outstretched arms offered salvation to both . A free will choice to ask for forgiveness one chose wisely . Do we listen to the Truth revealed by the Holy Spirit do our Bishops listen or are we being driven as sheep without Shepards iento prediction by the devil and his minions? The Lion of Judah, Christ the Lamb of God will rule in His Glory . Our Queen and Mother is preparing His apostles for His return . May the Queen of Peace protect us with her mantle. Thank you Caritas for stepping up and out in all that you do. Viva Cristo Rey!
I sure hope all hear and listen and understand what you have been doing. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I ask God for forgiveness. For strength to do His will. For courage to remain faithful. May the Queen of Peace reign soon, thank you Sweet Mary our Mother, thank you God our Father, thank you Jesus our friend and brother, and thank you Holy Spirit and May you dwell in us all. PS I love what you are doing? Blessing on you, Thank you. Our Mother in heaven and here on earth is so beautiful. I wish all to know her, she loves and heals and helps everyone who ask. Thank you and thank Her and also the Father in heaven for letting her come and stay with us She is the best teacher in the whole wide world. Love and thanks
Finally…thank you. Outstanding message.
Another awesome writing, direct from your heart to the world. It is time for me to grow some backbone and confront the Bishops over here. I did a timid contact with the local priest not wanting to offend out of respect about 1 – 2 years ago that failed miserably. If this writing and a CD of one or two of the broadcasts doesn’t wake them up, then I don’t know what will. I will include my favourite that woke me up – the 2018 Special World Report “Our Lady’s Here Because Of What Is Coming Out Of The Church” plus the one about Our Ladys’ Apostles mission mentioned in this writing called “Fables, Bipolar, Church Leaders” from February 2019. Thank you FOM, may God Bless you and your family plus all at COB. I too believe the secrets aren’t too far away which will start to fix this big mess of a world. Thank you FOM for listening to Our Ladys call and creating these broadcasts and writings. I look forward to them every week and will miss them when Our Ladys messages stop as assuming your mission may change then too.
I believe that no one genuinely wants to make mistakes. Unfortunately, they happen for a variety of reasons. And at this point, admit the mistakes, repent, and move quickly and do the right thing, before it is to late. Follow Mary and Her Messages. If one is in an important position, forget your reputation, what’s more important your reputation or your eternal life. A FM. is extremely knowledgeable and has a deep understanding and insight into the messages. Maybe its time to take him up on his offer to visit Caritas. Please, move quickly time is running out. God Bless to All Joanne
Thank you for standing up for the truth and Our Catholic faith. It takes courage to stand up against Our political leaders and Our Catholic Bishops who are not willing to stand up for our Catholic faith. It is important that we stand strong and encourage everyone we know to stand for our Catholic faith and values. I find it difficult to convince my own family members to stand against Biden, who represent the Left wing of the Democrat Party because of pro abortion right and gay marriages.
