The Human Microchipping Agenda

Is this for reel or for real?!? I sent my newest blog post link to a friend yesterday and in exchange, he gave me three interesting links to different websites that introduces another troubling fact. All of which, discusses about predictive programming and human microchipping. So, what's this fuss all about? As I understood it, predictive programming is mind or psychological conditioning, mainly, through media.

Human Microchip

The idea of Human microchipping was added to our vocabulary through the  various films that we saw. Initially, some reactions of the viewers  to human microchipping in films find the idea  absurd; while to others, it's a cool technology. And, more often, you give credit to the writer for having such  a creative mind. It's all fiction. It's a brilliant work. It entertained us. Can you name films where human microchipping made possible? The Manchurian Candidate, The Phantom Menace, The Last Enemy, The Simpsons; just to name a few. There are lots of 'em.  With the numerous films that has human microchipping, it all sounded so ordinary now. It's more like a reality than ever. How do you think so? Because the agenda is to introduce the idea in a subtle way (by predictive programming) so, when put into action, the masses will accept it with little resistance or none at all. Whoever finds this cool do not realize the danger we may all be in.

I'm aware that microchipping were already used in animals for tracking purposes. And we all know that animals are being made to be guinea pigs. It worked all the time  and who knows what further developments they are working on to improve and  polish the device to make it ready for human implantation?

Microchip for humans are described to be a bit different. It contains a bar code which will be made unique for each individual. It will be your National ID. Every transactions (from buying to selling, banking, payroll, etc)  will be stored into one database. No human activities will remain hidden.

True, there may be instances that human mcrochipping may prove to be beneficial especially if used to patients with Alzheimer' criminals..tracking them if the need arises will be easy. All things created have its advantages and disadvantages but if the latter outweighs the former, where would you be?  If the agenda is to make this mandatory in the future, what is behind all these? Who is/are behind the hidden agenda?

Katherine Albrecht, the anti-RFID activist and co-author of Spychips interviews Greg Nikolettos, the founder of We The People Will Not, on her radio show. Here is Part 1 of 4. The others can be found in YouTube.

Another video that shouldn't be missed can be found at We Will Not Be Chipped website. Go and research further. You can find lots of information around the net. Educate yourself!

" . . . and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

 -- Revelation 13:15-17

WHO: Wild Poliovirus Confirmed In China

29 August 2011 - A wild poliovirus was confirmed in China. The Ministry of Health has informed WHO about this wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) has been isolated from four young children with ages between four months and two years, with onset of paralysis between 3 and 27 July 2011. All four cases are reported to be from Hetian prefecture, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, China.

The genetic sequencing of the said virus indicates that they are genetically related to viruses currently circulating in Pakistan. A group of clinicians, laboratory experts and epidemiologists and public health experts has been dispatched to the affected regions to further investigate and plan response activities.

The local public health authorities in Xinjiang autonomous region are currently conducting an epidemiological investigation that includes collection of stool specimens from contacts and evaluation of vaccine coverage.

The Ministry of Health in China plans to conduct an initial response vaccination campaign in early September, targeting 4.5 million children aged under 15 years in the immediate outbreak area, and children aged under 5 years in adjacent prefectures. Moreover, the Ministry of Health in China and the provincial government have finalized plans for supplementary immunization activities. In a province-wide vaccination campaign, 3.8 million children will be targeted with two rounds of polio immunization. Six of the 14 prefectures in the province, including the provincial capital of Urumqi, will target children under 15 years of age, while the other prefectures will target children under 5 years of age. The map below shows the extend of the upcoming vaccination campaign to take place 8-12 September 2011 and 8-12 October 2011.

What is Poliomyelitis?

Poliomyelitis (polio) is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus that invades the nervous system.  It can cause crippling paralysis, sometimes in a matter of hours. Polio generally affects children under the age of three, but adults can contract it as well.

The virus enters the body through the mouth and multiplies in the intestine. Initial symptoms include fever, weakness, headache, vomiting and pain in the limbs. A lifelong paralysis can set in quickly. Among those paralyzed, 5%-10% die when their breathing muscles become immobilized. Many of those infected with the virus will show no symptoms at all but can pass the virus on to others.

Polio is incurable but it can easily be prevented through immunization. Polio vaccine, given multiple times, almost always protects a child for life. Through quality vaccination and disease-reporting (surveillance) systems, the Western Pacific Region has been polio-free since 19 March 1997 when the Region’s last case caused by an indigenous (locally circulating) poliovirus was reported in Cambodia. Polio continues to occur in other parts of the world.

Once established in the intestines, poliovirus can enter the blood stream and invade the central nervous system—spreading along nerve fibres. As it multiplies, the virus destroys nerve cells (motor neurons), which activate muscles. These nerve cells cannot be regenerated and the affected muscles no longer function. The muscles of the legs are affected more often than the arm muscles. The limb becomes floppy and lifeless - a condition known as acute flaccid paralysis (AFP).

Two types of vaccine against polio are available. The first is a live attenuated (weakened) oral polio vaccine (OPV), which was developed by Dr Albert Sabin in 1961. OPV is given orally and its action is two-pronged: OPV produces antibodies in the blood ('humoral' or serum immunity) to all three types of poliovirus. In the event of infection, this will protect the individual against polio paralysis by preventing the spread of poliovirus to the nervous system. OPV also produces a local immune response in the lining ('mucous membrane') of the intestines—the primary site for poliovirus multiplication. The antibodies limit the multiplication of 'wild' (naturally occurring) virus inside the gut, preventing effective infection.

The unique ability of OPV to induce this intestinal, local immunity is probably responsible for the extraordinary effect of OPV mass campaigns in interrupting wild poliovirus transmission. Due to these advantages, OPV remains the vaccine of choice for the eradication of polio.

The second type, the inactivated polio vaccine (IPV), was developed in 1955 by Dr Jonas Salk. IPV is used primarily in countries where the wild poliovirus has already been eliminated. It has to be injected by a trained health worker.

WHO recommends that polio vaccine be given at birth (in areas where polio is still endemic), at six weeks, 10 weeks and 14 weeks.

World Blitz was created in June 2011. The articles contained herein are generally about the significant events happening in our world today. Some articles may contain my own personal observations and view of a topic that marked my mind and captured my interest.

My goal in this blog site is to compile all the reported events worldwide that transpired in the past, our present time  and what has yet to come. As such, are highlights correlating to what was put forth in the Holy Bible's Revelation in relation to that of the Blessed Virgin Mary's revelations in her apparitions to selected religious individuals.

My curiosity commenced with the eleven parts video uploaded by the Most Holy Family Monastery in Youtube; entitled, "Is the World About To End?" For me, it was an eye opener which led me to research and educate myself further for the truth. One though must keep an open mind in watching the videos,  otherwise, your skepticism may lock you out from pursuing till the end part.

We accept that this and that news are happening everywhere. The world has advanced to an unimaginable progressive era. The evolution in technology proved to be beneficial to the present time. Anything and everything is almost possible. But, the fact remains, intelligence and Science cannot stop the unfolding reality and the events prophesied  in the Holy Bible. Look around you. Read the news. Feel the weather. Observe and ponder. Reality depicts what was foretold.

Much more to all these, there are aspects hidden from the majority. Unless, one would cultivate his or her own knowledge, the reality will remain uncovered. They have been there...always in the background. Ignorance of the matter may labour bad fruits. Complacency may bring forth loss of the burning love for the Supreme Being.

All the information here are factual and well researched. The goal is to expand the awareness and understanding of the people who happen to come across my blog site.

May you be touched by The Blessed Virgin Mary and see reason with what you read, observe and hear.

May God Almighty Bless Us All!!!

The Three Days Of Darkness

Excerpts from Yves Dupont (1922-1979)


Here are the proximate signs in their probable order of occurrence. This, to be sure, is only my own opinion, and I may be wrong for I am no prophet myself; but, after studying a large number of prophecies, this order appears to me to be the most likely:
  • Flouting of church laws, irreverence and immodesty in church, fall in attendance at church.
  • Lack of charity towards others, heartlessness, indifference, divisions, contentions, godlessness, pride in human knowledge.
  • Breakdown of family life: immorality, adultery, perversion of youth via the media (e.g. homosexuals giving lectures in schools), immodest fashions (e.g. mini-skirts, bikinis, see-throughs), people concerned only with eating, drinking, dancing and other pleasures.
  • Civil commotions, contempt for authority, downfall of governments, confusion in high places, corruption, coups d'etat, civil war, revolution. (The first four proximate signs have already come to pass, at least partly; for we are yet to see civil war and revolution in the West. But the sequence of events is not strictly chronological; there is room for some overlapping. Thus, the 5th proximate sign seems to have begun also.)
  • Floods and droughts, crop failures, unusual weather, tornadoes, earthquakes, tidal waves, famines, epidemics, unknown diseases (e.g. new strains of viruses).


This will take place between the proximate and the immediate signs. It will be a supernatural occurrence.

During the Warning, everyone will be made aware of his/her own sinfulness, and many will wish to die, but the Warning itself will be completely harmless.

The Warning must be viewed as the last act of mercy from God, a final appeal to mankind to do penance before the three days of darkness and the destruction of three-quarters of the human race. At a time when the murder of unborn babies and the sin of Sodom and Lesbos have become respectable and sometimes legal, we should not wonder why God is going to punish mankind.

By that time, war and revolution will have already caused a high death toll, and Communism will be victorious, but all this will be as nothing compared with the death toll caused by the Three Days. 


It will be a bitterly cold winter night in the Northern hemisphere. (Presumably, a very cold summer night in Australia or, by contrast, a torrid night.) The wind will howl and roar. Lightning and thunderbolts of an unprecedented magnitude will strike the earth. The whole earth will shake, heavenly bodies will be disturbed – (this will be the beginning of the Three Days). Every Demon, every evil spirit will be released from hell and allowed to roam the earth. Terrifying apparitions will take place. Many will die from sheer fright. Fire will rain forth from the sky, all large cities will be destroyed, poisonous gases will fill the air, cries and lamentations everywhere. The unbelievers will burn in the open like withered grass. The entire earth will be afflicted; it will look like a huge graveyard.

As soon as you notice that bitterly cold night, go indoors, lock all doors and windows, pull down the blinds, stick adhesive paper on vents and around windows and doors. Do not answer calls from outside, do not look at the windows, or you will die on the spot: keep your eyes down to make sure you do not see the windows; the Wrath of God is mighty and no one should attempt to behold it. Light blessed wax candles; nothing else will burn, but the candles will not be extinguished once lit. Nothing will put them out in the houses of the faithful, but they will not burn in the houses of the godless. Sprinkle holy water about the house and especially in the vicinity of doors and windows: the devils fear holy water. Bless yourself with it and anoint your five senses with it: eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, feet, and forehead. Keep on hand a sufficient supply of drinking water and, if possible, food also (but you can live without food for three days.) Kneel down and pray incessantly with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the floor. Make acts of contrition, faith, hope, and charity. Above all say the Rosary and meditate on the Sorrowful mysteries.

Some people, especially children, will be taken up to Heaven beforehand to spare them the horror of these days. People caught outdoors will die instantly. Three-quarters of the human race will be exterminated, – more men than women. No one will escape the terror of these days.

Blessed Anna-Maria Taigi stated in regards to this terrible Three Days of Darkness Chastisement:

    "God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy."
    "All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms."

But, when all seems lost and hopeless, then, in the twinkling of an eye, the ordeal will be over: the sun will rise and shine again as in springtime over a purified earth.

Some nations will disappear entirely, and the face of the earth will be changed. There will be no more "Big Business" and huge factories which sap men's souls. Craftsmanship will revive, and assembly lines will give way to the working bench.
People will return to the land, but food will be scarce for about three years. Married women will bear many children, for it will be regarded as a disgrace not to have children, no more "career women" addicted to the "pill". Unmarried females, “ there will be many, will enter the religious orders and form large congregations of Nuns within the reborn Church. Disease will decrease dramatically, and mental illnesses will be rare, for man will have retrieved his natural environment. It will be an age of faith, true brotherhood between neighbors, civil harmony, peace, and prosperity. The land will yield crops as never before. Police will have little work to do: crime will disappear almost entirely. Mutual trust and honesty will be universal. There will be little work for lawyers, either. All the manpower which is currently taken up by the wickedness of the modern world will be released and available for the production of useful commodities. Thus, prosperity will be very great. This wonderful period will probably last 30 years approximately.

As soon as you see the sun rise again at the end of the Three Days, drop to your knees and give thanks to God.

Be warned, SPREAD THE MESSAGE, but do not fear: it would be an offense to God to show lack of confidence in His protection. Those who spread the message will be protected, but the scoffers, the skeptics, and those who dismiss the message because they are frightened, will not escape the chastisement.


SPREAD THE MESSAGE; Remain in the state of grace. Go to Mass (Note: this is not possible for the majority of true Catholics during this prophesied (by Our Lady of La Salette) "Eclipse of the Church". See imperative information on how to fulfill your Mass obligation and about valid Confessions.) Say your rosary every day. Obtain some bees wax candles and have these blessed by a True (approbated) priest connected to Pope Gregory XVII and his Successors. Do not buy ordinary white candles; they are not made of wax. Pray for the liberty and exultation of the True Church. Say the prayer to St. Michael which His Holiness Pope Leo XIII composed after witnessing a terrifying vision of Satan's power. Wear the Brown Scapular and the miraculous medal. Deny yourself some legitimate pleasures and entertainment; many of the holy individuals who have predicted this chastisement, insist on this. Eat sparingly, frugally, to sustain life properly - think of food as you would medicine. When the proximate signs are over, i.e., war and revolution culminating in the victory of communism, when you behold the Warning, then store up food, drinking water, blankets and other necessities.

The Most Holy Rosary

The Sorrowful And Immaculate Hear Of Mary

The Rosary is, in form, a meditation of the chief mysteries of the life, death and glory of Jesus Christ and of His Blessed Mother.

The Rosary  is made up of two things:
  • Mental Prayer - the meditation on the mysteries.
  • Vocal Prayer - the recitation of the 15 decades.
Each decade is headed by an Our Father followed with 10 Hail Marys. With the recitation of the Rosary, one should  meditate on and contemplate the 15 principal virtues which Jesus and Mary practiced in the 15 mysteries of the Holy Rosary.

The Three Mysteries
  • Joyful Mystery
  • Sorrowful Mystery
  • Glorious Mystery
Origin of the Rosary

Saint Dominic withdraw into a forest near Toulouse when he saw the gravity of the people's sins that hindered the conversion of the Albigensians. He prayed unceasingly for three days and three nights. He wept and did harsh penances to appease the anger of Almighty God. He used his discipline so much that his body was lacerated and he fell into a coma.

Our Lady appeared to him with three angels. She said, "Dear Dominic, do you know  which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to be  used  to reform the world?"

"Oh, my Lady," Saint Dominic anwered, "You know far better than I do because next to your son, Jesus Christ, you have always been the chief instrument of our salvation."

Then Our Lady replied, "I want you to know that in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Angelic Psalter which is the foundation stone of the New Testament. Therefore, if you want to reach these hardened souls and win them over to God, preach my Psalter."

So he arose, comforted with so much zeal for the conversion of the people in that district, he made straight to the Cathedral. At once, unseen angels rang the bells to gather the people together and Saint Dominic began to preach.

At the beginning of his sermon, an appalling storm broke out, the earth shook, the sun darkened and there was so much thunder and lightning that all were much afraid. Their fear was greater when they looked at the picture of Our Lady, exposed in a prominent place, saw her arms raised to heaven three times to call down God's vengeance upon them if they failed to be converted and to amend their lives and seek the protection of the Holy Mother of God.

God wished by means of these supernatural phenomena, to spread the new devotion of The Holy Rosary and  make it more widely known.

At last, at the prayer of Saint Dominic, the storm stopped and he started preaching. So fervently and compellingly, he explained the importance and value of the Holy Rosary that almost all the people of Toulouse embraced it and renounced their false beliefs. In a very short time, a great improvement was seen in the town. People began leading Christian lives and gave up their former bad habits.

(Note: The picture of the SORROWFUL AND IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY  was somewhat mysterious in its origin. This was discovered at the time of the 1918 armistice in the cellar of the boarding school where Berthe Petit, a humble Franciscan Tertiary, had been educated. After the troops had departed, a Bernardine nun found a pornographic picture which she tore to pieces and threw to the flames.  To her astonishment she found this beautiful representation of the Blessed Virgin! It seemed to be a combination of the art of both the Eastern and the Western Rites. The facial features resembled those of the well known Pieta. Prayer before this picture has brought signal favors.

Confided by Our Lord to Berthe Petit, "Teach souls to love the Heart of My Mother pierced by the very sorrow which pierced Mine." (December 25, 1909).

"The Heart of my Mother has the right to be called Sorrowful and I wish this title be placed before that of Immaculate because she has won it herself. The Church has defined in the case of My Mother what I, myself, had ordained - Her Immaculate Conception. This right which My Mother has to a title of justice, is now, according to My express wish, be known and universally accepted. She has earned it by her identification with My sorrows; by her sufferings; by her sacrifices and her immolation in the Calvary endured in perfect correspondence with My grace for the salvation of mankind." (September 6, 1911).

"It is the heart that must be changed. This would be accomplished only by the Devotion proclaimed, explained, preached and recommended everywhere. Recourse to My Mother, under this title I wish for her universally, would be the last help I shall give before the end of time." (July 2, 1940).

August 21, 2011 - Sunday

Tropical Storm Irene's clouds spotted over Puerto Rico with a maximum sustained winds were near 50 mph. She was expected to be a hurricane Monday, August 22. Forecast to weaken after its center moved over Dominican Republic and continued through the eastern Caribbean.

August 22, 2011 - Monday

Irene moved away from Puerto Rico toward the Southeastern Bahamas with maximum sustained winds were near 75 mph (120 kmh) and moved to the west-northwest near 14 mph (22kmh). Its center was about 55 miles (90 km) west-northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico near 18.8 North and 66.8 West. Minimum central pressure was 987 millibars. 

August 23, 2011 - Tuesday

8AM EDT, Irene strengthened to a Category 2 hurricane with its center was headed toward the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southeastern Bahamas.  Her maximum sustained winds were near 100 mph (160 kmh); located near 20.6 North and 70.6 West, about 70 miles south-southeast of Grand Turk Island and moved to the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 kmh). Minimum center pressure is 987 millibars. Various hurricane and tropical storm warning were in effect.

2PM EDT, the center was 55 miles south of Frand Turk Island. The island was in hurricane -force winds as Irene  headed to move west-northwest at 10 mph (17 kmh) with minimum sustained winds near 100 mph (160 kmh).  She was located near 20.7 North and 71.2 West. Minimum central pressure was near 977 millibars.

The National Hurricane Center noted that "Irene could become a major hurricane by Wednesday."

August 24, 2011 - Wednesday

Now became hurricane Category 3 at 8AM EDT as it moved toward the Crooked and Acklins Islands in the Bahamas with maximum sustained winds increased to 115 mph (186 kmh). On this category, a hurricane can cause devastating damage according to the NHC's webpage:

August 25, 2011 - Thursday

NASA satellite data showed Irene's diameter was about one-third the length of the U.S. Atlantic Coastline. The distance from Augusta, Maine to Miami, Florida was 1662.55 miles. The force-winds extended 255 miles from the center that made Irene 510 miles in diameter.

By 11AM EDT, Irene moved north and was 75 miles (105 km) east-northeast of Nassau near 25.9 North latitude and 76.8 West longitude. Irene's winds dropped slightly and moved to the north-northwest near 13 mph (20 kmh).

At 2:59 AM EDT, Irene was right off the Florida, Georgia and South Carolina costs.

8AM EDT, the hurricane was centered 375 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, near 30.0 North and 77.3 West. Irene moved 0.1 degree to the west in the last 3 hours. Maximum sustained winds were near 110 mph, and Irene is moving north at 14 mph. Minimum central pressure is 945 millibars.

Rainfall is a serious issue with Irene as she is expected to drop 6 to 10 inches with isolated amounts of 15 inches from eastern North Carolina into southeastern Virginia, eastern Maryland, Delaware, eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, southeastern New York, Long Island, Western Connecticut, and western Massachusetts through Monday morning.

August 26, 2011 - Friday

At 2:59 AM EDT, Irene was right off the Florida, Georgia and South Carolina costs.

Hurricane Irene was extending her clouds over the southeastern U.S. Coastal evacuations were made in New York City, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North and South Carolina.

8AM EDT, the hurricane was centered 375 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, near 30.0 North and 77.3 West. Irene moved 0.1 degree to the west in the last 3 hours. Maximum sustained winds were near 110 mph, and Irene is moving north at 14 mph. Minimum central pressure is 945 millibars.

Still in Category 2 and remained in that intensity at 3:10 PM EDT.

1:40 PM EDT, the wide cloud of Irene stretched over a third of the U.S. east coast.

2 PM EDT, Arrived along the coast of the Carolinas with its center found about 300 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, near 31.2 North and 77.5 West with Its maximum sustained winds were near 100 mph and was moving to the north near 14 mph. Minimum central pressure was 951 millibars.

August 27, 2011 - Saturday

11AM EDT, Irene's tropical storm force winds extended outward 260 miles that made the extent 520 miles in diameter.

Weather Channel Reporters had it that hurricane Irene sustained winds on the beach of Nags Head, NC near 60-65 mph as Irene continued battering eastern North Carolina and tropical storm conditions were spreading into the Delaware, Maryland and Virginia coast while at the same time gave its first brief moderate rainfall to the Washington, DC area.

In Virginia Beach, VA, two tornadoes had been reported by the Weather Channel and warning was in effect.

With a maximum of sustained winds near 85 mph, Irene moved toward north-northeast near 15 mph. A wind gust to 87 mph was reported at Cape Hatteras, NC while further Northfolk Naval Air Station reported a wind gust to 63 mph.

August 28, 2011 - Sunday

9AM EDT, Hurricane Irene made a second landfall near Little Egg Inlet, N.J., early Sunday morning. Still at Category 1 with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 km per hour). Slightly weakened at 65 mph (100 km per hour) before making its 3rd landfall over Coney Island, N.Y.

The heavy rainfall and storm surge hit New York City's Battery Park with water level near 8.6 feet at 8AM EDT. An additional of 2-6 inches is expected to cause more flooding in New Jersey and New York Regions
because of the  2-5 inches of rain that has fallen in the last 18 hours.

Watches and warnings are in effect in New Jersey and New York through New England. Burlington, V.T.; Albany, N.Y.; New York City and Philadelphia are cities also under threat of flooding. Irene is expected to continue to move inland and head north - northeast on its way to Canada.

Antipopes In The Vatican?

Pope Gregory XVII - The true Pope in Exile
A white smoke signal first appeared for about half an hour from the Sistine Chapel chimney. People outside the Vatican were shouting, 'Bianco! Bianco!' In Italian, it means white. A white smoke means  a pope has been elected while black smoke indicates failure.  It is the traditional signal announcing the election of a new pope.

Ordinarily, the elected pope would appear on the balcony within twenty minutes. It has been said that the crowd waited for a full half hour in suspense for the pope to show up. Nothing happened. Confusion among the people sat in wondering whether the smoke was meant to be black or white. Media already made its announcement that a new pope has been elected.This happened in 1958 of the 26th of October.

Something strange happened. It was twice during the day that a smoke was let out from the chimney. The white smoke billowed white but quickly turned unquestionably black. If it weren't for Mr. Scortesco, the mystery behind the white smoke and the secret post-election meeting of the 1958 Conclave may not have been uncovered. Scortesco was the cousin of two members of the Vatican's Noble Guard and the President of the Noble Guard. The guards were responsible for guarding the conclaves of 1958 and 1963 - making sure that no communication occurred with the outside.

Scortesco revealed in his published letter that, “In the case of John XXIII (1958) and of Paul VI (1963), there were communications with the outside.  It was thus known that there were several ballots in the first conclave [1958] which resulted in the election of Cardinal Tedeschini and in the second [1963], Cardinal Siri.” (Excerpt from the French Newsletter, Introibo, No. 61, July-August-September, 1988, Association Noel Pinot, Angers, France, p. 3.)"

Scortesco obviously obtained the shocking revelation from his Noble Guard cousins. The letter was published in Introibo. Shortly after its publication, Scortesco was found burned alive in his bed.

With that revelation, Scortesco meant that Cardinal Tedeschini (and not Antipope John XXIII) was actually elected first in 1958. And Cardinal Siri (and not Antipope Paul VI) was elected first in 1963. Highlighting the words 'communicating with the outside' in Scortesco's published letter, what did he mean by that? In his later writings, it indicated that there was a communication with a Jewish Freemasonry or the B'nai Brith. Therefore, it would mean that if there were an unlawful influence from the outside with the Papal election then this would also mean that such elections were invalid.

For a deeper insight on this, please read: The Cardinal Siri Elections in Brief and The Pope In Red.

What Happened Inside the Conclave?

In an interview obtained by Mr. Gary Giuffre conducted in London, England in July 1993 with Fr. Jean-Marie Charles-Roux, a former Vatican official and intelligence officer claimed that Joseph Cardinal Siri of Genoa had been elected and also accepted the Papal office. He was shoved aside without his abdicating. A very serious threat was delivered to Siri and the assembled Cardinals through Cardinal Tisserant (the Dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals). A group of cardinals in league with Tisserant ordered the ministers to change the mixture in the stove to wet straw to produce a black smoke outside. When the conclave officials refused to follow, a group of cardinals brushed the monsignors aside and dump the wet straw into the stove themselves.

Malachi Martin reveals more of What Happened in 1958?

What Has Become of Cardinal Siri After The Papal Throne Was Taken Over?
Cardinal Giuseppe Siri of Genoa, Italy was the truly elected Pope on October 26, 1958. He was put under constant death threat (duress) for more that 30 years. But through Divine Providence, he was able to create Cardinals which included designating a Camerlengo (Chamberlain) to continue the mission of the Church Hierarchy in 1988. Pope Siri chose the name Gregorius XVII. He created a 'Continuance of Papacy Plan" from 1988 to 1989 with a Papal directive to His secret Cardinals to ELECT His successor promptly where he to die in an unforeseen manner (this occurred). He died in exile on May 2, 1989.

You'll find more information about Pope Gregory in Today's Catholic World.

Understanding The Papacy

The Office of the Papacy is the office that Christ instituted in Saint Peter (see Mt. 16:18-20; John 21:15-17) in which he was made the chief of the Apostles and visible head of the Church by Jesus Christ. The Papacy is occupied by every true and lawful Bishop of Rome, who becomes successor to St. Peter in the primacy over the universal (Catholic) Church of Jesus Christ. This means and guarantees that every time there is a true and valid occupant of the Office he is endowed by Christ with infallibility (in his authoritative and binding teaching capacity, not in everything he says or teaches); he is endowed with supreme jurisdiction over the universal Church; and he is the visible head of the Church.  That remains true for every true and lawful occupant of the Papal Office.  Those teachings proclaimed by the popes in history with their binding authority (such as the Council of Trent or the Council of Florence or a solemn Papal Bull on faith, etc.) constitute the deposit of faith – the unchangeable teachings to which Catholics must submit, and on which they base what they believe as the faithful transmission of the teaching of Scripture and Tradition.  The Papacy doesn’t mean that the Church will have a true pope at all times, as Church history and more than 200 papal vacancies prove, nor does it mean that antipopes reigning from Rome are an impossibility (such as Antipope Anacletus II, who reigned in Rome from 1130-1138) – as is the case today.

There have been 260 valid popes in Church history and more than 40 antipopes.  There have been more than 200 papal vacancies (periods without a pope).  The facts available in The Most Holy Family Monastery  prove that the last five men who have claimed to be popes have been and are antipopes.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi: Three Days of Darkness

Anna Maria Taigi was one of the great mystics of the last century. She achieved sanctification by living the ordinary life of a wife and mother in a spirit of Christian mission and surrender to the will of God.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi was born in Siena on May 29, 1769. Her parents, Louis Giannetti and Mary Masi moved to Rome due to financial difficulties. This was when Anna Maria was only six years old.

At a very young age, Anna Maria married Domenico Taigi who was a young pious man with a difficult and rather coarse character. Given that, Anna Maria was more concerned of his husband's virtue.

Their marriage was of highest Christian principles. With a profound understanding of social and moral values of the Christian marriage, Blessed Anna Maria made God the center of her home. She avoided anything that would disturb the family peace by being docile to her husband. She avoided anything that would irritate him. Despite the impoverished circumstances, Anna Maria was generous to the poor.

Out of the seven children she bore, three of whom died in childhood. She raised her two boys and two girls with the most accurate and complete religious secular education.

To love God and to serve him in everything was her greatest desire. She was greatly devoted to the Holy Eucharist, to the Most Holy Trinity, to the Infant Jesus, to the Sacred Passion of Our Lord, and ever had the tenderest devotion to Our Lady.

On December 26, 1808, Anna Maria entered the Third Order of the Most Holy Trinity. She was enriched by God with the many supernatural gifts. The apparition of a golden luminous globe like a miniature sun was the most unusual gifts she received from heaven. She could see both present and future events anywhere in the world including the state of grace of individuals both living and dead.

Anna Maria realized that one of her role was to expiate the sins of others. She sustained great austerities for the poor souls in purgatory. These souls, once set free, came to thank her. When she touched the sick, they were cured. Others that she warned of their death, died in holiness and in state of grace. Anna Maria, in her life time, suffered in body and soul.

The Church declared her Blessed in 1920. Anna Maria died on June 9, 1837. Her mortal body lies in the Chapel of the Madonna in the Basilica of San Crisogono, Rome, Italy.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi saw a major and as of yet still forthcoming Chastisement for the world: "God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy."

"All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms." (Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837 A.D.) who was Beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1920.)



Same prophetic vision was also foretold by Padre Pio, Elizabeth Canori-Mora, Rosa-Colomba Asdente, Palma d'Oria, in Italy; Father Nectou, in Belgium; St. Hildegard, in Germany; Pere Lamy, Marie Baourdi, Marie Martel, Marie-Julie Jahenny, in France. (This list is not exhaustive; many more mystics have announced the Three Days.) 

Here are a few quotes from these mystics: 

Sr. Elena Aiello

"The times are grievous. The whole world is in turmoil because it has become worse than at the time of the deluge! Everything is in suspense, like a thread; when this thread breaks, the justice of God will (strike) like a thunderbolt and will complete its terrible course of purification."

Padre Pio

NEW YEAR'S EVE 1949:  Jesus to Padre Pio

"My son, My son, I have been longing for this hour in which I again shall reveal to you the great love of My heart . . . Pray and make reparation to Me.  Admonish others to do the same because the time is near at hand in which I shall visit My unfaithful people because they have not heeded the time of My grace.  Persevere in prayer, so that your adversary shall have no dominion over you. Tell My people to be prepared at all times, for My judgment shall come upon them suddenly and when least expected – and not one shall escape My hands, I shall find them all!  I shall protect the just. Watch the sun and moon and the stars of the Heavens. When they appear to be unduly disturbed and restless, know that the day is not far away.  Stay united in prayer and watching until the angel of destruction has passed your doors.  Pray that these days will be shortened."  (Read more...(Read More...)

Venerable Elizabeth Canori-Mora (19th century, Italy)

“The sky took on a morbid blue color which terrified everyone who looked at it. A dark wind blew everywhere. An impassioned and mournful shrieking filled the air, like the terrible roar of a fierce lion, and resounded all over the earth in blood curdling echoes."  (Read More...)

Although the Church does not oblige us to believe in any particular prophecy as seen by the mystics, the question remains, "How could we explain that these people from different distant places were describing the same thing?"

Antimatter Probe

Image of Antimatter

The first time my knowledge was challenged with Antimatter was when I read the novel "Angels and Demons", written by Dan Brown. I know nothing of its existence even until then. I thought it was just a figment of the author's imagination. Little did I know that it's for real.

What is Antimatter?

Antimatter, to make it simple, is described as sub-atomic particles with properties opposite those of normal matter particles; also have normal gravity.

In 1928, English Physicist, Paul Dirac has put forth the idea of the existence of antiparticles which confirmed in experiments by American Physicist Carl Anderson in 1932. Dirac derived equations which would work for an electron with a negative charge and an electron with a positive charge - an antiparticle. 

Antimatter And Its Dangers

Theoretically speaking, the Universe should contain an equal amount of antimatter as normal matter but we cannot observe any large quantities of antimatter to begin with. Scientists aren't sure why antimatter is rare in today's universe. 

Antimatter has been very difficult to handle because matter and antimatter don't get on, destroying each other instantly on contact in a violent flash of energy. Antimatter can be dangerous if found in large quantities, via annihilation. However, it is so rare, at least, in this part of the Universe - small quantities available do not present any danger at all. In this world, it can be found at big accelerator facilities, such as CERN in Switzerland or in deep outer space.

Antimatter trapped for over 15 mins by CERN Scientists

So now, if each type of particle has its own antiparticle and if we are surrounded with matter, where did all the antimatter go?

The Use Of Antimatter

Antimatter is currently used for Positron Emission Tomography (PET). The positrons are antimatter. This is highly beneficial for located cancer sites in the body. It can also be used to monitor brain activity and to measure certain material properties  important for polymers and material damage.

Antimatter Explained in Kids' Language

Antimatter is a 'mirror of the Universe' or a 'mirror image of matter'. Let's put it this way: Look at yourself in the mirror. What if your image in the mirror really exists? Then that image exists somewhere - it would be called an 'antiyou'. Physicists even imagined that somewhere far away there could be a world that looks just like our own, or rather like the mirror image of it. It would be an antiworld with antistars, antisuns, antiwater, all made of ANTIMATTER!

Antimatter Belt Around Earth Discovered 

BBC News: August 7, 2011, For the first time, the Payload for Antimatter Matter Exploration and Light-nuclei Astrophysics or PAMELA spotted a thin band of antimatter particles called antiprotons enveloping the Earth. PAMELA was launched in 2006 to study the nature of high-energy particles from the Sun and from beyond our Solar System - so-called cosmic rays. Read more...

Arctic Warming Causes Ice Melting

Due to the rising temperature, climate in the north polar region had become warmer during the past few decades that causes ice to melt in the said region.

Modern science have a lot of ways to find out and monitor what's going on in the Arctic region. We now have satellites that collect data from above that would tell where it is melting and how fast ice is moving towards the ocean. We all know that Greenland is packed with ice but as our planet gets warmer, glaciers are melting. It is even melting faster now than ever before.

The most logical thing to think about is when icebergs calve off a glacier into the ocean, sea level would definitely rise because the melted ice is added to the ocean. Many glaciers are melting quickly.  Thawing permafrost releases greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. Though there's only a tiny amount of greenhouse gases in Earth's  atmosphere, they have a tremendous effect on climate.

What happens when temperature gets warmer? Not only would glaciers melt but other things would follow. Plants and animals are moving further north to find a suitable habitat for them. And if this continues to happen, many species of each kind could not survive.

Melting ice from different Arctic areas is feared to cause enough flood in low lying cities such as Shanghai, China, New York City, Boston, Halifax and other cities in the northeastern United States and in Canada, according to new research led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Millions of people could be displaced in the process.

An estimate of three feet rise in the sea level is predicted over the next century that could wreak havoc around the world if it comes to pass. Moreover, warmer water temperatures could shift ocean currents. As more ice melts, sea level increases and in turn absorb more of the sun's heat, leading more snow and ice to melt.
What Causes the Greenhouse Effect?

Greenhouse gases such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone and methane regulates our climate by trapping heat and holding it in a kind of warm-air blanket that surrounds the planet.  This is called the 'greenhouse effect' phenomenon.

How Humans Contribute to the Greenhouse Effect?

Human activities distort and accelerate the natural process by creating more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere than necessary.

  • Burning natural gas, coal and oil including gasoline increase the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere.
  • Deforestation. Trees use carbon dioxide which helps create optimal balance of gases in the atmosphere. Due to deforestation, we have fewer trees to perform this critical function.
  • Farming practices increase levels of methane and nitrous gases.
  • Factories produce long lasting industrial gases.
  • Population growth. People use fossil fuel for heat, transportation among others. As more farming occurs to feed millions of people, more greenhouse gases enter the atmosphere.

To sum it all up, more greenhouse gases would mean more infrared radiation trapped in the atmosphere which gradually increase the temperature of the Earth's surface and the air in the lower atmosphere.

The Impact Of The Solar Storm

Photo Image NASA
The sun is predicted to reach its maximum activity in a few years. Scientists believe that our planet will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy caused by the charged particles of the solar flare. This may take place sometime late 2013 or early 2014.

This event will greatly impact our lives due to our heavy reliance on electronic devices which are pretty much sensitive to magnetic energy. What's alarming is the huge possibility of the overheating of the National power grids. Navigation devices and major satellites could stop working, air travel will be severely disrupted and it could damage everything such as hospital equipments, banking systems, air traffic control devices, home computers, mobile phones and everything electronic including electricity power.  Dr. Fisher, director of Nasa's Heliophysics division said these flares will change the magnetic field on the earth due to the effect of the solar flare activity.

A severe economic impact is being thought of. But how severe it's gonna be, no one can really tell.

According to The Telegraph news. "Britain could face widespread power blackouts and be left without critical communication signals for long periods of time, after the earth is hit by a once-in-a-generation "space storm". Nasa Warned.

Sun Recently Unleashed Solar Flare - August 5

The sun unleashed a massive solar flare last Thursday. The coronal mass ejection (CME) registered M9.3 on the Ritcher scale of flares, about the highest level in the "medium" category. A CME this enormous was never seen before, said astrophysicist Philip Chamberlain of NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
The Earth's magnetosphere is the reqion around our planet that's being controlled by a magnetic field. If the sun's charged particles known as the solar storm reaches our planet, this can create  extra currents on our magnetic field and can infiltrate high-voltage transmission lines. This can cause overheating of transformers and possible burn out.

What can cause global radio blackouts is the larger flares that fall into the category "X" if one of them reaches Earth.

The sun is at the peak of the 11-year solar cycle and the danger it brings is becoming critical.Magnetic messiness is said to peak around in late 2013 or early 2014. Chamberlain said that extreme flares will probably be seen every couple of months instead of years.

If the powerful flares reaches Earth, the charged particles will pound satellite components and may potentially cripple the system.

“Space weather really is everybody’s business, and the sun has an activity cycle very much like the hurricane season,” Bogdan said. “The sun’s season is about 12 years long, and we’re just coming up to the next maximum in solar activity, so we expect to be seeing more of these storms coming from the sun over the next three to five years.” Moreover, Bogdan also said that if the current wave is strong enough the increasing frequency of solar storms could induce an Aurora that would be visible in the mainland United States.
The M9-class solar flare of August 4th produced a burst of shortwave static so powerful that receivers on Earth picked it up after sunset. “A RadioJove observer in Florida recorded the burst when the sun was 38 degrees below the horizon,” reports amateur radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft. Ashcraft’s own radio telescope in New Mexico recorded the event 1 hour and 54 minutes after sunset. “To my knowledge, receptions like this are very rare,” says Ashcraft. -Space Weather

Solar Flare


NASA - March 10, 2006: The sun was quiet. The sun has already reached its minimum whereby the Sun spots had all vanished and Solar flares are nonexistent. Like the quiet before the storm.


A team of Researchers lead by Mausumi Dikpati of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) announced that a storm of the most intense solar maximum in 50 years is coming. The next sunspot cycle will be 30% to 50% stronger than the burst of the historic Solar Max of 1958.

Dikpati realized years ago that the key to this mystery is a conveyor belt on the sun which was described to be similar  to the Earth's which is called the Great Ocean Conveyor Belt.  It is a network of currents that carry water and heat from ocean to ocean.  If the conveyor belt stopped this will bring the weather in chaos.

The sun's conveyor belt is a current of electrically conducting gas that flows in a loop from the sun's equator to the poles and back again. The solar conveyor belt controls weather on the sun, specifically, the sunspot cycle. It takes about 40 years for the belt to complete its loop with varying speeds anywhere from a 50-year pace (slow) to a 30-year pace (fast).

"The top of the conveyor belt brush the surface of the sun, gliding up the magnetic fields of old, dead sunspots. The 'corpses' are dragged down at the poles to a depth of 200,000 km where the sun's magnetic dynamo can amplify them. Once the corpses (magnetic knots) are reincarnated (amplified), they become buoyant and float back to the surface." Then, sunspots appear!

History shows that big sunspot cycles are faster than the small ones.


NASA - Juune 21, 2011:  The earth experienced the most powerful storms on the eve of September 1859. The most energetic protons in half -a-millenium set telegraph offices on fire and sparked Northern lights over Cuba and Hawaii. Researchers still aren't able to categorize the unusual underlying flare. The "Carrington event" of 1859 (named after astronomer Richard Carrington witnessed the instigating flare) would tell us that even when the underlying cycle is seemingly weak strong storms can occur .  

What the forecasters are saying is that the sun is once again on th eve of a below-average solar cycle as 2011 advances.

Compared to the ill effects of the 1859 solar flare, the situation of today would be more serious.  With the modern technology that surrounds our life, blackouts could last for weeks to months; affecting banking and financial networks. Air and water transports could no longer trust GPS units for navigation. According to a 2008 report from the National Academy of Sciences, a century-class solar storm could have the economic impact of 20 hurricane Katrinas.  "Modern society depends on high-tech systems such as smart power grids, GPS, and satellite communications--all of which are vulnerable to solar storms."

NASA researchers a few miles away are actually doing something about it:

"We can now track the progress of solar storms in 3 dimensions as the storms bear down on Earth," says Michael Hesse, chief of the GSFC Space Weather Lab and a speaker at the forum.  "This sets the stage for actionable space weather alerts that could preserve power grids and other high-tech assets during extreme periods of solar activity."

A fleet of NASA spacecraft that goes around the sun made the monitoring possible by analysts  at the lab and feed the information into a bank of supercomputers for processing. A 3D movie showing where the storm will go is produced within the hour of a major eruption showing which planets and spacecraft it will hit and predicting when the impacts will occur. This is truly a pathbreaking  for interplanetary forecast in the short history of weather forecasting.

Antti Pulkkinen, a researcher at the Space Weather Lab says, "This is a really exciting time to work as a space weather forecaster. The emergence of serious physics-based space weather models is putting us in a position to predict if something major will happen."

To pinpoint transformers in greatest danger of failure during any particular storm, an experimental project named "Solar Shield" was created and led by Pulkkinen. Any electrical currents flowing in the Earth soil produced by a solar storm can now be predicted with the aid of some sophisticated computer models. These currents can do the most damage to power transformers.  "Disconnecting a specific transformer for a few hours could forestall weeks of regional blackouts," says Pulkkinen.

Another SWEF speaker, John Allen of NASA's Space Operations Mission Directorate said that, "Astronauts are routinely exposed to four times as much radiation as industrial radiation workers on Earth," he says.  "It's a serious occupational hazard." Being on the frontline, Astronauts are exposed of a stormy weather. Therefore, they are carefully monitored and all activities are being accounted for to ensure safety.


NASA - July 11, 2011:  On June 7, 2011,  A flash of X-rays coming from the western edge of the solar disk were being detected by Earth-orbiting satellites . Registering only "M" (for medium) on the Richter scale of solar flares, the blast at first appeared to be a run-of-the-mill eruption--that is, until researchers looked at the movies. "We'd never seen anything like it," says Alex Young, a solar physicist at the Goddard Space Flight Center. "Half of the sun appeared to be blowing itself to bits."

"IN terms of raw power, this really was just a medium-sized eruption," says Young, "but it had a uniquely dramatic appearance caused by all the inky-dark material. We don't usually see that."

Solar physicist Angelos Vourlidas of the Naval Research Lab in Washington DC calls it a case of "dark fireworks."

"The blast was triggered by an unstable magnetic filament near the sun's surface," he explains. "That filament was loaded down with cool plasma, which exploded in a spray of dark blobs and streamers."

As NASA explained, "Plasma blobs are funneled toward sunspots by magnetic fields. The plasma blobs were as big as planets, many larger than Earth. They rose and fell ballistically, moving under the influence of the sun's gravity like balls tossed in the air, exploding "like bombs" when they hit the stellar surface. Some blobs, however, were more like guided missiles."

 "In the movies we can see material 'grabbed' by magnetic fields and funneled toward sunspot groups hundreds of thousands of kilometers away," notes Young.

NASA also explained, "SDO also detected a shadowy shock wave issuing from the blast site. The 'solar tsunami' propagated more than halfway across the sun, visibly shaking filaments and loops of magnetism en route. Long-range action has become a key theme of solar physics since SDO was launched in 2010. The observatory frequently sees explosions in one part of the sun affecting other parts. Sometimes one explosion will trigger another ... and another ... with a domino sequence of flares going off all around the star."

"The June 7th blast didn't seem to trigger any big secondary explosions, but it was certainly felt far and wide," says Young. He estimates that the cloud massed about 4.5 x1015 grams, placing it in the top 5% of all CMEs recorded in the Space Age. For comparison, the most massive CME ever recorded was 1016 grams, only a factor of ~2 greater than the June 7th cloud.2 The amount of material that fell back to the sun on June 7th was approximately equal to the amount that flew away, Vourlidas says. As remarkable as the June 7th eruption seems to be, Young says it might not be so rare. "In fact," he says, "it might be downright common."

Only time can tell.

Pray, Hope and Don't Worry

Padre Pio was born to Grazio Mario Forgione (1860 - 1946) and Maria Guiseppa de Nunzio (1859 - 1929) on May 25, 1887 in Pietrelcina Southern Italy. He was baptized day after he was born in the nearby Castle Church with the name of his brother who died in early infancy, Francesco.  He has an older brother named, Michele and three younger sisters: Felicita, Pellegrina and Gracia. Two other children died as infants.

Religion was the center of life for the family and Pietrelcina. Attended the daily mass, prayed the rosary every night and would fast three days a week from meat in Honor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Deep piety was evident in early childhood. At the age of five, he consecrated himself to Jesus. He also commented that in his younger years he had conversed with Jesus, the Madonna and his guardian angels. His parents learned of his desire to become priest in 1897.

He was tutored privately until his entry into the Capuchin Friars at the age of fifteen. He took the habit of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin on January 22, 1903.  On the day of his investiture, he took the name of Pio in honor of St. Pius V, the patron saint of Pietrelcina. He was called fra (for brother) until ordination of priesthood.  On January 22, 1904,  Fra Pio knelt the altar and made his first profession of the Evangelical Counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience.  He took his final vows in 1907 and at the age of 23 and by grace completed his studies and was ordained priest in 1910 by Archbishop Paolo Schinosi at the Cathedral of Benevento. His first celebration of the Mass was done four days later at the Parish Church of Our Lady of the Angels. Within the month of ordination, Padre Pio was praying in the Piana Romano on September 7, 1910 when Jesus and Mary appeared to him and gave him the wounds of Christ, the Stigmata. He asked Jesus to make it invisible, "I do want to suffer, even to die of suffering, but all in secret." The wounds went away and supernatural life remained a secret for awhile.

From the end of 1911 - 1916 Padre Pio was separted from his religious community due to on going health issues. He returned to his community life on September 4, 1916 and was assigned to San Giovanni Rotondo.  There were only 3 friars left at Our Lady of Grace on the outbreak of the war. His responsibility included teaching at the seminary and spiritual director of the students. He later on became in charge of the college when another friar was drafted into war. Padre Pio was also inducted into the service in August 1917 and was assigned to the 4th Platoon of the 100th Company of the Italian Medical Corps. He became a spiritual director on return to San Giovanni after he was dismissed in March 1918. He had observed five rules for spiritual growth: weekly confession, daily communion, spiritual reading, meditation and examination of conscience. Padre Pio's motto, "Pray, Hope and Don't Worry" is the synopsis of his application of Theology into his daily life.

Betwen August 5 - 7, Padre Pio had a vision of Christ. As a result, Pade Pio experienced a "transverbaration" or piercing of the heart indicating the union of love with God.

As his spiritual influence increased, so did his detractors. Accusations against him led to restricting public access to Padre Pio. His celebration of mass was varied each day without any announcement to diminish the crowds. Despite though of these restrictions and controversies, his ministry continued to flourish. Various statements were made to deny supernaturality of Padre Pio's phenomena. He was also ordered to desist all activities except the celebration of the mass which was to be made private. It was only Pope Pius XI who reversed its ban on public celebration of mass on early 1933.

The health of Padre Pio deteriorated in the mid-1960s, however, he continued his daily mass and hear 50 confessions daily. He was almost bedridden by July of 1968. On the 50th anniversary of the stigmata, he celebrated mass, attended public recitation of the Rosary and benediction. In the early morning hours of September 23, Padre Pio called his superiors to make his confession. He renewed his vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Padre Pio died in his cell at 2:30 AM. He lived sick but died healthy with the stigmata healed, as he foretold.


The most remarkable gift attributed to him was the phenomenon of Bilocation which enables a person to be present in two places at the same time. Bilocation must not be confused with omnipresence - being present everywhere at the same time belongs only to God.

The prayer of his profound desire to identify with Christ crucified not only by participation in the priestly apostolate but in some mysterious way in that supreme immolation of Our Lord on Calvary (cf. Le Stimmate di P. Pio, G. Cruchon, SJ, Colana "Spiritualità", No. 1, p. 102). "I am dying of pain because of the wound and because of the resulting embarrassment which I feel deep within my soul. . . Will Jesus who is so good grant me this grace ? Will he at least relieve me of the embarrassment which these outward signs cause me" (Ep., V. 1, p. 1904).

Millions of souls climbed to Mt. Gargano to the Capuchin Friary of Our Lady of Grace seeking for his intercession with God. Majority of these souls though were not of the living but that of the poor souls of the dead confined  to Purgatory for the expiation of the temporal punshiment due to their forgiven sins.

Click the link  The Poor Souls.


God granted him the vision of his guardian angels and also of others. It was through the guardian angel of a person that their need was brought  to Padre Pio's attention, who then prayed for this person. Padre Pio never abandons his spiritual child . Even if he did not visit them personally, they would receive help through his guardian angels no matter what danger they were in.
