Fatima and Akita
A Fateful Concurrence

I ran across a very interesting article from The Remnant. As it's well known, I have a special devotion to Our Lady of Akita. I hope you find this interesting, as well. Here's some of the article; (Emphasis mine)
In my book I show that the former Cardinal Ratzinger, who conferred face-to-face with Bishop Ito in Rome concerning the Akita apparitions, told Howard Dee, the former Philippines Ambassador to the Vatican, that the Message of Fatima and the Message of Akita are “essentially the same.” In that case, one would expect to find in the Fatima message something “essentially the same” as the Akita message of October 13, 1973, the very anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima:

As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the pope, the bishops, and the priests.

The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees…churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromise and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

Since the parts of the Fatima Message we have seen so far contain no prophecy of this sort, but we do have a vision of a Pope being executed by soldiers outside a half-ruined city, it seems we are missing the words of Our Lady which explain why a future Pope comes to meet his end outside that half-ruined city, and what causes its ruin. Does the scenario of the “vision of the bishop in white” have something to do with fire that “will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful”? If the Message of Fatima and the Message of Akita are “essentially the same,” it seems that the only reasonable answer is yes.

In an address Pope Benedict gave at Bethlehem on May 13 2009, the anniversary of the first apparition at Fatima, the Pope declared: “You promised the three children of Fatima that ‘in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.’ May it be so!” That remark represents, to those who know, a stunning reversal of the “party line” of the Vatican Secretary of State that the triumph of the Immaculate Heart is already behind us, and consists of the “fall of communism” following the “consecration of Russia” in 1984—during a ceremony which avoided any mention of Russia, lest the Russians be offended. It also represents a reversal of the former Cardinal Ratzinger’s truly embarrassing claim, in the Vatican commentary of June 2000, that the triumph of the Immaculate Heart took place when Mary gave her “fiat” 2,000 years ago.

One thing which is clear from my visit to Akita is that the Society of Saint Pius X understands that the man who was Ratzinger is not quite the same man who is Pope today. Benedict XVI knows things he is not saying, and all the talk of a conciliar springtime is over. The Pope knows of the fateful concurrence of Fatima and Akita, which would explain why he sent a note of gratitude to Antonio Socci for Socci’s own book (The Fourth Secret of Fatima) making the case that the Vatican has hidden the words of Our Lady pertaining to the Third Secret.

As I complete this story in haste on my way to assist Mike Matt and John Rao in leading the annual Remnant pilgrimage from Paris to Chartres, I urge my fellow Catholics to pray for the Consecration of Russia and to join SSPX’s Rosary crusade for that intention. With the reign of Obama, the cunning master Sophist, prefiguring the reign of the Lord of the World, only the Triumph the Immaculate Heart—not “rallies for the Republic”—can save this nation by bringing on the one development that will save the world at large, to quote Antonio Socci: “a radical and extraordinary change in the world, an overthrow of the mentality dominating modernity, probably following dramatic events for humanity.” God save the Pope. God save America. Our Lady of Fatima, intercede for us! Our Lady of Akita, intercede for us!

Stimulus for whom?:
A 40-Year Wish List

"Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before."

So said White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in November, and Democrats in Congress are certainly taking his advice to heart. The 647-page,$825 billion House legislation is being sold as an economic "stimulus," but now that Democrats have finally released the details we understand Rahm's point much better. This is a political wonder that manages to spend money on just about every pent-up Democratic proposal of the last 40 years.

We've looked it over, and even we can't quite believe it. There's $1 billion for Amtrak, the federal railroad that hasn't turned a profit in 40 years; $2 billion for child-care subsidies; $50 million for that great engine of job creation, the National Endowment for the Arts; $400 million for global-warming research and another $2.4 billion for carbon-capture demonstration projects. There's even $650 million on top of the billions already doled out to pay for digital TV conversion coupons.

In selling the plan, President Obama has said this bill will make "dramatic investments to revive our flagging economy." Well, you be the judge. Some $30 billion, or less than 5% of the spending in the bill, is for fixing bridges or other highway projects. There's another $40 billion for broadband and electric grid development, airports and clean water projects that are arguably worthwhile priorities.
Add the roughly $20 billion for business tax cuts, and by our estimate only $90 billion out of $825 billion, or about 12 cents of every $1, is for something that can plausibly be considered a growth stimulus. And even many of these projects aren't likely to help the economy immediately. As Peter Orszag, the President's new budget director, told Congress a year ago, "even those [public works] that are 'on the shelf' generally cannot be undertaken quickly enough to provide timely stimulus to the economy."

Most of the rest of this project spending will go to such things as renewable energy funding ($8 billion) or mass transit ($6 billion) that have a low or negative return on investment. Most urban transit systems are so badly managed that their fares cover less than half of their costs. However, the people who operate these systems belong to public-employee unions that are campaign contributors to ... guess which party?

Here's another lu-lu: Congress wants to spend $600 million more for the federal government to buy new cars. Uncle Sam already spends $3 billion a year on its fleet of 600,000 vehicles. Congress also wants to spend $7 billion for modernizing federal buildings and facilities. The Smithsonian is targeted to receive $150 million; we love the Smithsonian, too, but this is a job creator????

Obama's choice as Vatican ambassador seen as representing new face of US Catholicism
June 09, 2009

Miguel Diaz, the theologian chosen by President Obama to become the new US ambassador to the Holy See, will give Vatican officials a different perspective on American affairs, says John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter Distorter:

Díaz embodies two currents in American Catholicism heretofore not terribly visible in the Eternal City: its burgeoning Hispanic wing, and its center-left theological guild.
Spare me the propaganda, NCD. This guy is an out-and-out Secular Humanist Socialist. Doubt me? Click here to see for yourself exactly who and what he stands for.

But I digress... it's true that the Latino population is growing, but does that mean ALL Latinos agree with this soft-boiled Marxist? Hardly. Latinos are some of the most traditional of all Catholics, but unfortunately, there are a number that are easily bullshitted and suckered in by flash and sizzle. But hey, all demographics can plead guilty to that.

And as far as the "center-left theological guild" is concerned, methinks he means the High Priests of theological and secular Liberalism that have infected our Priesthood and Religious Orders for the past few decades. Nothing new there. Just look at how the majority of our 'leaders' were silent when the Butcher-In-Chief received his honorary doctorate at Notre Damned. Or even better, the constant barrage of heresy preached every Sunday from your garden variey parish. Is it any wonder so many Catholics are numbed and willingly swallow poison?

With a 'center-left theological guild' like them, who needs wolves?
This was posted to me on my other blog:

FM: Elena, June 1,2009:

Good luck. I am truly sorry for you because he will not return any phone calls to parishioners. I was very disappointed in him as a person as well as a clergy. Msgr. James Lisante was appointed pastor of our parish 10 years ago. When he came back he appointed many of the people he went to grade school with ,to positions within the church and school.
He was hardly around, always doing something else (on his book tours, tv show)I was a little shocked with his behavior considering that he grew up in the neighborhood and went to that school. He does not look out for his congregation, he protects his cronies that he placed into positions.
One family went to him because their children were coming home with bruises and being verbally and physically abused from other students at the school ,and the principal and staff were presnt on some instances ,and did nothing to help the children or stop it. Lisante and his staff of cronies would not do their jobs. The family contacted his office and they were told it is not a matter for the monsignior. He did not get back to them, so they persued it and hired a lawyer to look into the matter. The DRVC got involved and Lisante left for OLL less than 4 months later.

So there wasn't a complete love affair with the parishioners of St Thomas, and Msgr LISANTE.
