  1. On Easter i went to “Our Lady of Fatima” Catholic church without a mask on for the first time. I was the only one in church without a mask. I was ready on “Divine Mercy ” Sunday to be rejected from church. The priest asked me, “Where’s your mask”. I told him that i object to the Mask and the vaccine. He looked angry and said nothing. I’m expecting three strikes your out next Sunday. I may go to jail or I can leave knowing that I have fulfilled my obligation. If they kick me out I will definitely begin holding signs  outside church telling Catholics what I think about Today’s evil Catholic church. I would like free legal help because I will not pay a penny to get out of Jail. I will not participate in the money hungry judicial system. The Catholic church is communist and the greatest enemy of our great country. I will tell them about Medjugore. I guess I won’t mention Caritas because I don’t think Caritas wants to be associated with me  in this struggle. I do appreciate everyone’s prayers.

  2. Do you by chance have any sound resources you can steer us to in helping guide us toward “stocking up” our pantries?  I love how that was all put.  I know The Lord does not want us to fear, and I know he wants us to be prudent and preparing to take care of our family of course, and to not be hoarders!  Thank you for this 

  3. I do not agree with these comments.  You must not haveVisited a hospiral lately. Walk through the ICU in any hospital and look at the people dying because some of them did not believe they could get this virus. God also inspired people to become scientests . Thank him. Now these people have developed a vaccine to try an get us out of this delimmaOf a pandemic. Jesus told Vassula Ryden in March 2020 that this pandemic is going to last a lot longer than you thinkRead the message of TLIG MAR.2020. PEOPLE GET THE VACCINE.

  5. Thank you so much for the April 8th Radio Wave.  You have helped me and my to family to  know  what we are supposed to be doing.  Only by the grace of God and our sweet Blessed Mother am i lucky enough to have a husband who has listened to you and your warnings.  We will not take the second shot or any shot again.  God bless you all.

  6. Because the satanists are trying hard to keep doing their rituals. I remember when a priest at my childhood church talked about an instance when the host was found hidden in a church pamphlet and it was figured out what was planned for it and stopped.  This occured quite a few years ago, if ya ever heard of how they do that or sent kids to get it for them and how they like using holy items, expecially eurchrist and tried with the lance which you know curses them as well, blessings given to the good and if used in bad then curses the holder, in their rituals the more Holy powerful the more they aim for it, and euchrist is the bread temple highest sacrifice besides being Jesus’s body and blood. Sadly, that sounds like one of those instances.

  7. I’m  only half way through,  and I’m  lifted up, because we pray St. Joseph’s prayer! This Easter Sunday,  we witnessed 2 abominations to Our Eucharistic Lord while we were refused  reception by mouth.! One of those instisances involved a 20 some girl with purple hair, who raised the Host to her mouth/mask,  and then hid it in her hand and walked away! You might ask why I would allow this?….two of my sons  witnessed it and only told me after she had apparently left. This was preceeded by a young girl, who twirling, through out her hand, received, and walked away with Host in hand! The priest, saw, and sent someone to receive Our Lord. ( but I do question why he would have given her Our Lord to begin with…poor judgment!)I’d  like to say, that during Communion, my family restrained and we prayed a spiritual Communion. What we witnessed followed. As the situation with the younger girl took fold, we witnessed on the screen from the hall. As the priest questioned the mother, “Has she received her first holy communion???” , mutiple times, he then instructed someone to retrieve the Host. Then..whomever was in charge of the live stream to the hall, cut the mic and focused camera on the crucifix.  Why didn’t  they want this event to be seen??????!!!!! I did…Holy Spirit inspired….go to the front of the hall and poured forth from my mouth, everything spirit lead, to the usher who denied us, and to the Eucharistic minister! If I put all those words here…it would be too much. So to shorten a long story….I am done playing the covid game in our church!!!! While my now 9 y/o can’t  make his first Holy Communion,  while our family has not received Our Lord in over 6 months…the abominations are allowed to continue under the LIE of covid! Our bishops are responsible for this! But, we as individuals and families,  need to resist and DEMAND our right as Catholics,  to receive Our Lord by mouth AND to demand measures to protect Our Eucharistic Lord be put in place!!

  8. Impeccable timing that this Special World Report was issued today. I have no doubt Our Lady was behind this as nothing is by chance. Thank you Friend of Medjugorje. In Australia there is this article today about Vaccines being dropped with all these others taking it’s place. Todays broadcast has helped me see right through this – it is all a scam. I knew it was a scam but it is hidden in plain sight right now. Here is the story that makes it seem like the Vaccine is really important  [url=https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/australia-will-fast-track-other-vaccines-after-astrazeneca-decision/ar-BB1frWir?ocid=msedgntp]https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/australia-will-fast-track-other-vaccines-after-astrazeneca-decision/ar-BB1frWir?ocid=msedgntp[/url]

  9. Good morning, I had to pull my children out of Catholic School about 6 years ago, in Texas, because of the Bishops decision. I only this month received my BA degree in Management and Healthcare Administration. I am almost 49 years old and the mother of 9 children. My point is, I am not book smart per-se, but I had it pressed upon my heart many years ago these vaccines were not good. I did put my kids into public school (because they do allow the exemptions) and now my youngest will start kindergarten this Fall. I battle with the devil daily with fear of the future, almost to the point paralysis. I do attend daily mass, and confession 2 – 4 times a year. I need prayers for clarity in my mission, enlightenment, gifts of wisdom, knowledge, the Holy Spirit, and Courage.

  10. My head and my heart are so congested after listening to this I had to replay it twice more to make sure I understood what you were telling us. Two years ago at my physicians request, I took the shingles vaccine after my husband came home from a business trip with a nasty case of shingles. (he unwittingly exposed several coworkers and heard later at least two came down with a case of chicken pox)

  11. I am astounded to think that anyone could produce a vaccine in such dishonest way and a very sinful way as for us we wont be advising people to vaccinate their children in that way.

  12. Mary Anne Felipe

    Thank you! I had no idea that vaccines were from aborted babies! I have such tears for those who are suffering from this evil. I am grateful for your words and for Mary who points to the Light of the world in simple words.

  13. Northern Apostle

    Our territory uses Alberta provinces services. A common question asked to Alberta Health Services is, ” Do vaccines contain cells from aborted fetuses (babies)?” The answer from the government is, ” Vaccines do not contain cells from aborted fetuses(babies) or other human cells. Human cell lines may be used in the early stages of production of some vaccines; however, all cells are removed during the vaccine manufacturing process. This means that there are no human cells in the actual vaccines that your child will receive.” In union with deceit, the government is trying to make it seem like its a necessary evil. There is NO Necessary Evil!!! “Evil is the absence of God”, as the brilliant Albert Einstien said. My heart aches in union with the fathers whom can easily feel hopeless in the challenges of being a martyr for the glory of God. God bless you all, Queen of Peace and Reconciliation pray for us.
