Push For War. Tuesday 27 August, 2013. St. Joseph Calasanctius,C

Push for War in Syria - Storm Clouds

MHFM: This is a very interesting 10 minute video on the fraudulent pretext being used to generate support for another outrageous and worthless military intervention in the Middle East.
It deals with the cause of the chemical weapons attack. 

Watch video    


 Though this video doesn't mention it explicitly, the push for war in Syria is all for Israel, as usual.

The U.S. would not benefit from war in Syria.   It would only further debilitate, and perhaps devastate the U.S. economy.   It would also further strain the military, considering the state of the economy and the widespread disenchantment with the previous fraudulent wars, the fact that they might be able to pull off another one in the Middle East (solely for Israel: to further clear out the weeds in Israel's backyard) is an astounding commentary on the extent of Israel's control and influence.

Leaked Documents: U.S. Framed Syria in Chemical Weapons Attack [video]


Transcript of the video:

"On August 21, 2013, chemical weapons were used in the Syrian conflict, yet again, the Western Powers, the U.S. and France in particular, didn't hesitate for a moment to take advantage of the tragedy, decrying it as a crime against humanity and using it as a springboard to announce their preparations for a military strike against the Syrian Government.

Make no mistake, this was a crime against humanity, but the gas was not used by the Syrian Government - it was used by the NATO - backed rebels.

In this video we are going to show definitive evidence to support this claim.  We are going to explain the U.S. and NATO's motive for committing this atrocity.   The leaked documents that we are going to be presenting are available for you to download yourself.   You'll find the link and the description to that download, and you'll also find the link to the mainstream articles we use in our research.

Now, in order to really understand this event, we need to look at it in context.  

United States has had Syria in its crosshairs for a long time; the plans for these wars have been in the works for over a decade.

4 Star General Wesley Clark:  "About 10 days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon, and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz.   I went downstairs just to say hullo to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in.

He said, 'Sir, you gotta' come in and talk to me a second.'   I said, 'We're too busy.' 
He said, 'No, no,' he said, ' we made the decision. We're going to war with Iraq.'
This was on or about 20th September.  I said, ' We're going to war with Iraq. Why?'
He said, ' I don't know ... I guess they don't know what else to do.'
So, I said, 'Did they find some information connecting Saddam to Al Qaeda?'
He said, 'No, no, there's nothing new that way, they just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.'  He said, ' I guess it's like we don't know what to do about terrorists, but we got a good military and we can take down governments, and I guess if it's the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.'
So I came back to see him a few days later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan, I said, ' Are we still going to war with Iraq?'

'Oh,' he said, ' It's worse than that!'  He reached over on his desk and picked up a piece of paper.  He said, 'I just got this down from upstairs from the Secretary of Defence earlier today, and,' he said, 'this memo describes how we are going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing with Iran.'"
U.S. Government doesn't like to present its wars as Empire building; they prefer to paint themselves as defenders of democracy and human rights.   To accomplish this little public relations sleight of hand, they've proven time and time again that they are willing to flat out make stuff up, and they are willing to kill thousands  of people to achieve their political objectives.

We saw a blatant example of this in the Iraq war, where they tried accusing Saddam of still harbouring the chemical weapons that the U.S. had provided him in his war against Iran.

Even back in the 80's the U.S. was trying to take out the Iranians.   They didn't like the fact that their puppet, the Shah, had been ousted in 1979, and as Wesley Clark pointed out, the 'End Game' is still Iran.

For a long time they tried going after Iran directly by accusing them of building nuclear weapons.   This line of worn out propaganda fell apart when elements within the C.I.A. and Mossad came forth stating there was no evidence that Iran even intended to build such a weapon.

You can only 'cry wolf' so many times, before people started rolling their eyes - so these chicken hawk neocons switched their strategy and decided to go after Syria, to get to Iran.
They knew that Syria and Iran had a mutual defence agreement, and if NATO forces enter Syria, Iran will be drawn into a fight.  

Rather than attacking Syria directly, the U.S. and NATO have been running a 'proxy' war, by arming and funding the Syrian rebels, also known as the SSA, funnelling these resources through their allies in the region.
To secure the source of this support, Qatar has been used to purchase the weapons from countries like Sudan enroute from Syria via Turkey.   Qatar is a close military ally of the U.S.   They provided tank support in the Gulf War of '91, and Qatar served as a U.S. Central Command Headquarters during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Fast forward to January 2013, when it was revealed that e-mails and a large quantity of sensitive documents from Britam Defence, a U.K. military contractor were leaked by a hacker.
These documents exposed a proposal coming from Qatar to march false flag chemical attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian Government.  

According to the documents, the plan had the full support of Washington, and enormous sums of money had been offered for the project.
The person sending these e-mails was David Goulding, Managing Director of Britam Defence.

The addressee was Philip Doughty, Dynamic Director and Founder of Britam.

By accessing the servers, the hacker was able to obtain the scan of Doughty's passport, resume, as well as the passports of Ukranian operatives, that the e-mails suggested should be used to carry out the attack.

The leak also included hundreds of other documents containing detailed financial and operational information for Britam Defence, including scores of signed contracts, weekly assessments, and incident reports projects in multiple countries. 
Among these were contracts for Saudi Arabia to help prepare their forces for war with Iran.
The release also depicted a tight business relationship with the infamous profiteer Albert.
The documents acquired by the hacker were not easy to come by.  Most of the places where they were offloaded were taken down very quickly without explanation.   However, we did manage to get the files.   Police spent quite a lot of time analysing them. 
After investing this time, it was very clear to us that they were real, but don't take our word for it - just take a look in the description for the download link and go and verify for yourself.
This leak was never mentioned by the mainstream media at all in the U.S. or Europe, and there was no investigation whatsoever, even though what was discussed here, was clearly planned to commit a war crime.  

Three months passed, and on March 19th, 2013, Sarin gas was used in Syria near Aleppo.   Israel and the U.S. promptly blamed the Syrian Government for the attack, even though many of those who were killed were Syrian Government soldiers.

Obama began telling about the event as a 'red line' that had been crossed, and the war mongers began their sabre rattling in earnest.  However, the U.N. insisted on investigating the issue themselves, and on May 6, 2013, U.N. investigator Carla Del Ponte went public stating that evidence from their investigation indicated that it was the Syrian rebels who had used the Sarin gas, and that there was no indication that the Syrian Government had marched any chemical attacks whatsoever.

Russian U.N. Ambassador, Vitaly Churkin agreed with Del Ponte after Russian experts visited the location where the projectile struck, and took their own samples of the material from the site.    The samples were then analyzed at a Russian laboratory certified by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

According to the lab report, results they found that the presence of hexogen utilized as an opening charge, and which is not used in standard chemical munitions, pointed to the attack being launched by the rebel.  

Rather than cover this development, the mainstream media did what they always do when they don't want the public to look at something.   They simply changed the subject. 

Now, of course, the fact that the U.S. backed the rebels that attempted to frame the Syrian Government in order to build support for a NATO invasion are bad enough, they were trying to start a war of aggression.
But let's remember that sarin gas was in fact used.   This means that the U.S. and its allies were willing to commit a blatant war crime killing scores of civilians in order to justify toppling Assad.
Nor did the U.S. withdraw their support after this event, in fact they increased it.


In July, the U.S. began openly discussing "kinetic strikes" against Syria as if their lies hadn't been exposed.  
This, of course brings us to the attack on August 21, 2013, where they attempted once again to frame the Syrian Government for the use of sarin gas.    Once again, they got caught.

The first wave of media coverage tried to pin the attack on the Syrian Government, and the U.S. and France instantly came out condemning Assad.
By August 24, 2013, the Pentagon had already announced plans for missile strikes, but even as they did, the story was already falling apart.

The Syrian Army came forward the same day
with footage to back up their report that they had uncovered a mass of chemical weapons cache in a rebel tunnel in the Damascus suburb, Jobar.   This is the exact neighbourhood where the chemical attack took place.

The Syrian Governments version of the event, backed up by several bits of evidence; (1) on May 31, 2013, security forces in Turkey found a 2kg cylinder filled with sarin gas after searching the homes of four Syrian militant; (2) on July 2, the Syrian Army went public about a chemical lab that they had found belonging to the rebels in the city of Banias, and (3) we already have those documents clearly showing the U.S. was backing a plan to frame the Syrian Government with chemical weapons.

All this clearly shows that the rebels had the means and the intent.
However, the most obvious variable in this equation is motive.
The only party that benefits from launching this attack, the Syrian rebels, the U.S. and its NATO allies.
The Syrian Government knows full well that the U.S. and NATO have been  looking for any excuse to invade.    The last thing they want to do is hand them that excuse.

The rebels, on the other hand, have already been caught creating false videos of civilian casualties.   The clip you are watching right now, is one of the most famous examples.

This chemical attack launched on August 21st, fits with their previous pattern.
The rebels further exposed their hand when two days after the attack they released a video statement vowing to strike with any and all means.   They claim to have access to chemical weapons and they said that they now intended to use them in a conflict with zero reservations from this point forward!

Essentially, they're using their own crime as a pretext to openly start using chemical weapons in combat!
 The stakes in this cover up are high!
Russia and China have both openly sided with Syria and Iran.    Russia has warned that thermonuclear war could result if the U.S. continues down this path!

That's an outcome that's too horrific to contemplate.
However, even if that worse case scenario was averted, this is such a matter of life and death for the Syrian and Iranian people.   If the U.S. invades, a lot of civilians are going to die.

The situation is not going to be improved by the U.S. attack any more than it was in Iraq or any of the other countries that we've toppled.  We have to do everything in our power to stop this!
Please help us get this information out to everyone especially those in the military.

Show this to facebook, twitter - post it on your website;  download this document; put them on disc with this video, and hand them out on the street.

If you're in the military and you find this video, please send it to your commanding officer, and to everyone that you trust in your unit.   If you are afraid of being punished, then find a way to send it anonymously.
Hundreds of people were killed in these attacks, many of them children and the U.S. Government was behind it.

If you're a parent, imagine what it would feel like if it where your son or daughter who had been slaughtered for the political objectives of the psychopaths;  think about it, long and hard, because these things have a way of coming home to roost.  -  Storm Clouds Gathering .com


MHFM : It's certainly noteworthy that even mainstream media is reporting that Israel is basically the entire source for the 'intelligence' and 'proof'' concerning who carried out the chemical weapons attack.   That should give people an indication of what this is all about.   Israel is not exactly an impartial, unbiased or reliable source.

Of course it was Israel "intelligence" that "intercepted Syrian regime talk about chemical attack"

August 29th, 2013
A team of United nations inspectors have resumed their second day of investigations at the site of an alleged chemical weapons attack outside Damascus, as western leaders moved towards military action in response to the Syrian regime's reported use of chemical weapons against civilians.
The U.N. team left their Damascus hotel early on Wednesday after the operation was suspended on Tuesday following a sniper attack on its convoy on Monday.
The bulk of evidence proving the Assad regime's deployment of chemical weapons - which would provide legal grounds essential to justify any western military action - has been provided by Israeli military intelligence, the German magazine Focus has reported.

The New Rite of Ordination is Invalid. Thursday 22nd August, 2013. Immaculate Heart of Mary. St. Timothy & Comp. Mm

The New Rite of Ordination is Invalid - by Bro. Peter Dimond  (




"This Bro. Peter Dimond (  I want to talk about the New Rite of Ordination.

As we pointed out in our video and in an article on our website, the New Rite of Ordination, which was instituted by the Vatican II sect in 1968, is not valid.
It's not valid for the same reason that Pope Leo XIII declared the Anglican Rite of Ordination to be invalid in his 1896 Bull, Apostolicae Curae.
Leo XIII declared that because the Anglicans removed from their Rite of Ordination all references to the true sacrificing priesthood, their Rite of Ordination was invalid, because it did not signify what the priesthood is.
By removing those references to the sacrificing priesthood which were contained in the traditional Rite of Ordination, they manifested an intention contrary to that of the Church, and therefore their Rite of Ordination was invalid.
Well, when the Vatican II Church came out with a new Rite of Ordination, just like it came out with the New Mass etc., in 1968, it actually removed all references to the true sacrificing priesthood, and it did so along the very same lines that the Protestant revolutionaries did, and actually a member of the Vatican II Church, named Michael Davies - he wrote a book called 'The Order of Melchisedech' - which gets into detail on this topic, and, he points out, "Every prayer in the traditional Rite of Ordination, which stated specifically the essential role of a priest as a man ordained to offer propitiatory sacrifice for the living and dead, has been removed, from the New Rite of Paul VI.   In most cases these were the precise prayers removed by Protestant Reformers, or if not precisely the same there are clear parallels."
So this defender of the Vatican II Church is admitting that the New Rite of Ordination manifested the same pattern of deletion as the Protestants and the Anglicans, and Pope Leo XIII declared that the Anglican rite of Ordination was invalid because of the deletions.
Davies also says, "there is not one mandatory prayer in the New Rite of Ordination itself, which makes clear that the essence of the Catholic Priesthood is the conferral of the powers to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass and to absolve men of their sins, and that the sacrament imparts a character which differentiates a priest, not simply in degree, but in essence from a layman.  There is not a word in it that is incompatible with Protestant belief."
So, the evidence against the New Rite of Ordination, based on Catholic Principle, is overwhelming.    It absolutely has to be considered invalid for the same reasons the Anglican Rite of Ordination was declared invalid by Leo XIII.
Now, we recently received an e-mail on this point from a woman who is unfortunately desirous of believing that the Vatican II Church is still somewhat Catholic, and, or that the New Rite of Ordination may be valid, and she says, " I read your information regarding the invalidity of the New Rite of Ordination, and I have a question.   It seems as if your main objection is that the New Rite does not promote the sacrificial character of the priesthood.   You claim the New Rite removes it from the old rite, as the Anglican Rite does.   When I reviewed the actual words of the New Rite, there does seem to be reference to the sacrificial nature.  Here are a couple of examples."
And, she attempts to give two examples.  Well, as we've pointed out in an e-exchange on our site, and their are links to important articles in the description to this video, the first example she cites is from an optional prayer.   It's not even part of the actual Rite, and other people have made this same mistake.
The part she cites says, "The ministry will perfect the spiritual sacrifice of the faithful by uniting it with Christ's Sacrifice, the sacrifice which is offered sacramentally through your hands.
And, Davies actually addresses this precise prayer in his book.   He says, "It must also be stressed that the 'bishop's charge,' ( that's what its called ), from which the passage from the Catholic Rite has been taken, is only an option, and that in the introduction to the ICEL version of the New Rite, stress is laid upon the fact that it is only an optional model." 
So, it's not even part of the actual Rite of Ordination.  Since it's not even part of the official Rite, it does nothing to remedy the failed defects, clearly manifested by the shocking deletion of Catholic prayers throughout the Rite.
And actually, let me give you examples of prayers that were abolished in the New Rite in Protestant fashion, and which key is, these prayers all signify that the priest is receiving powers that differentiate him in essence from a layman.
All of these elements which are the crucial elements in signifying the true sacrificing priesthood were abolished:
"Theirs be the task to change with blessing, undefiled for the service of thy people, bread and wine, into the Body and Blood of Thy Son." - abolished.
And notice, this prayer clearly signifies that the priest is getting powers to change the bread and wine.
Another prayer:
"Be pleased Lord, consecrate and sanctify these hands by this anointing and our blessing.  That whatsoever they bless may be blessed, and whatsoever they consecrate may be consecrated and sanctified in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ ."- abolished
"Receive the power to offer sacrifice to God and to celebrate Mass both for the living and the dead, in the name of the Lord." - abolished.
 Notice, again, that clearly signified a power that the priest would be receiving, that differentiates him in essence from a layman.
Another prayer: "Receive the Holy Ghost whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them, and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained." - abolished.
Another one: "Make you blessed in the priestly order, enabling you to offer propitiatory sacrifices for the sins of the people to Almighty God." - abolished.
Why does the New Rite abolish all of these prayers which were part of the traditional rite in which signified the true Catholic priesthood?
It does so precisely because its intention is contrary to this true priesthood, and when Leo XIII declared that the Anglican Rite of Ordination was invalid, he said, " Let this argument suffice for all.  From them has been deliberately removed whatever sets forth the dignity and office of the priesthood in the Catholic Rite.  That form consequently cannot be considered after sufficient for the sacrament which omits what it ought essentially to signify."
He also says, "For this reason in the whole ordinal, meaning Anglican Ordinal, not only is there no clear mention of the sacrifice of consecration of the sacerdotium, but as we have just stated, every trace of these things which had been in such prayers of the Catholic Rite, as they had not entirely rejected, was deliberately removed and struck out.   In this way the native character or spirit , as it is called of the ordinal, clearly manifests itself.   Hence it vitiated in its origin; it was holy and sufficient to confer orders."
He is saying that this pattern of deletion manifested the native character or spirit of the Ordinal, a character that was contrary to the intention of the Church, and that's why it was holy and sufficient to confer orders.    It lacked what must be signified to confer Orders, and it manifested an intention contrary to that of the Church.
The same exact principles absolutely apply to the New Rite of Ordination.
It is definitely invalid.
Now, another part of the New Rite this woman cited in a futile attempt to defend its validity, and others have raised this as well, says, "the bishop say, 'The Father anointed Our Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. May Jesus preserve you to sanctify the Christian people, and to offer sacrifice to God.'"
Well, that prayer doesn't help the New Rite of Ordination at all, because the Anglicans also spoke of a certain form of sacrifice.    Michael Davies addresses this in his book.   Michael Davies actually addressed this specific prayer in his book.    He said, "Note carefully, that no reference is made to the Sacrifice of the Mass, or to propitiatory sacrifices.   The Anglican reformers insisted that it was the duty of every Christian to offer sacrifice to God, but a sacrifice of laud, praise and thanksgiving."
Please note, the Anglicans also insisted that it was the duty of every Christian to offer sacrifices to God, but a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.   Davies also says, " Protestants do profess belief in a Eucharistic Sacrifice, but one in which the offering is praise, thanksgiving and ourselves."
Hence , a reference to "offering sacrifice" in the New Rite does not signify the true sacrificing priesthood, and does not show that the New Rite is valid, for the Protestants and Anglicans insisted on saying.
It is the specific references to the Sacrifice of the Mass, propitiatory sacrifice for the living and the dead etc.,  which have all been deliberately removed from the New Rite, which are crucial and essential in signifying the true sacrificing priesthood.
If the New Rite had not manifested an intention contrary to this priesthood, then it would have kept rather than deleted the aforementioned references to the true sacrificing priesthood.    It should also be remembered that the New Rite of ordination does mention that the candidates for ordination are to be elevated to the priesthood, but so also does the invalid Anglican.
So the point is that references to sacrifices or offering sacrifice are not sufficient to signify the true sacrificing priesthood.  
 The key elements are those prayers which show that a priest is receiving powers which differentiate him in essence from a layman, and that's why when the New Rite abolished the prayers about how the priest receives power to forgive sins, to offer Mass for the living and the dead, to carry out propitiatory sacrifices etc., those are the crucial elements, and by deleting them, the New Rite, without any question manifested a native character in spirit contrary to that of the Church, and it's invalid.
Now, another futile attempt has ben made to defend the New Rite.    This individual Deborah, after we sent her these responses pointing out how the one prayer she recites, not even part of the official rite, and the other one doesn't prove anything because it just speaks of offering sacrifice which the Protestants also spoke about - it doesn't speak about the essence of the power of the priesthood.
She seemed to admit that her objection in that regard did not hold up, but she's offering a different one, which is the fact that, in the new Rite, and when you look at the words of the form that Pius XII designated in Sacramentum Ordiniis - and we discussed this in our article on the topic - he designated certain words as essential for validity in ordaining priests.
If you compare that form to the words in the New Rite,  just in that portion, only one word is missing in the new Rite, the word 'ut,' which means 'so that,' and actually, the New Rite's removal of that word is significant because the word 'for that' or 'so that' signifies a cause and effect relationship.
It shows that which is happening to the priest is happening so that he may receive a new rank, a new power, a new position.
By removing it from the form, the New Rite presupposes an ordination which has already taken place, rather than one that is occurring as a result of what's happening during the ceremony and the words being pronounced.
But there's another principle people need to understand, which is even more significant in this regard, and that is that all seven sacraments were instituted by Christ to give grace, but only certain sacraments were instituted by Christ with a specific form.
Those sacraments are said to be instituted 'in specie,' in a special way, whereas other sacraments were instituted 'in genera,' or in a general way.
For example, the Sacrament of Baptism and the Sacrament of Eucharist, were instituted by Jesus Christ in a special way.   He gave us a specific sacramental form for baptism in Matthew 25.   He says, "baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost..."and the form of the Eucharist is found in scripture and tradition, however, in Ordination, Jesus instituted the sacrament but He did not give the Church a specific sacramental form.   He left it up to the Church to determine the sacramental form.  O.K. 
Since ordination is different in that way from Baptism and the Eucharist, the entire ceremony plays a role in giving signification to the form used by the Church, and so when you remove all the references to the true sacrificing priesthood from the surrounding rite, that gives a defective signification to all the words in the Rite, and the specific form that you are using, and that's why the entire rite must be considered with the sacrament, such as ordination.
But in the case of baptism, for example, the New Rite of Baptism.   The Vatican II Church has also changed the Rite of Baptism.
They changed the rites to all the sacraments, but even though they messed around with the Rite of Baptism, if they used the essential words, it's still valid, if the person also possesses the minimal intention to do what the Church does.
Since Baptism was instituted with a specific form, that form itself contains all the signification necessary for the sacrament, whereas in ordination, it was not instituted with a specific form, and the entire rite gives signification to the form, and that's precisely why Pope Leo XIII in analysing the Anglican Rite, took into account the entire ceremony and his key arguments were based on the things that were removed from the surrounding ceremonies, just as they've been removed from the New Rite of Ordination.
In fact Leo XIII even says that, " any words in the Anglican Ordinal which lend themselves to ambiguity cannot be taken in the sense as they possess in the Catholic Rite, for once a New Rite has been initiated, in which, as we have seen, the Sacrament of Order is adulterated or denied, and from which all idea of consecrating and sacrifice has been rejected, the formula 'Receive the Holy Ghost,' no longer holds good."
And so, what he is saying is that the formula in Ordination wouldn't even matter if the rite has been adulterated in such a way- that's the point.   So, the New Rite is invalid, and in fact they didn't even keep the form that Pius XII designated as essential.   They altered that as well.   But even if they hadn't it would still be invalid because the entire rite must be considered with the sacrament such as Ordination.
The New Rite of Ordination is invalid.   There's no doubt about it.
It should also be noted that Michael Davies, who brought forward overwhelming evidence proving the New Rite of Ordination invalid, actually held that it is valid!
However, he held that it's valid on the "authority" of Paul VI, not on the evidence found in the rite itself.
Davies concluded that the New Rite of Ordination as well as the New Rite of Mass had to be valid, for otherwise Paul VI would not be a true pope.   In his blindness and bad-will he obstinately failed to recognize  that Paul VI was indeed an antipope.
Can you imagine pinning all your hopes for your "priesthood" on antipope Paul VI!  [see our video: "The Amazing Heresies of Paul VI" or "The Third Secret of Fatima."]
Davies, therefore hung his entire conclusion for validity on the authority of the apostate antipope Paul VI, who enjoyed wearing the breastplate of a Hebrew High Priest; he's also the man who solemnly approved and promulgated Vatican II which teaches the Protestants are in the Church of Christ, esteems pagan religions.
There is absolutely no doubt that the New Rite of Ordination is invalid.   It was crafted as part of a heretical ecumenical anti-traditional agenda, and it gutted the right received from tradition in a way that parallels what the Protestants did.    When that occurs invalidity will necessarily be the result.
Furthermore, those who watch our recent video on the Apocalypse, will see that the invalidity of the New Rite of Ordination was actually indicated in the Apocalyptic prophecies.   [You can watch that video "Is the World about to End?"] and consider the information covered.
And, this issue is huge because it means that since the New Rite  was promulgated in 1968, all the "priests" ordained in the Vatican II Church essentially after that time, unless they were ordained in the Eastern Rite or in a rare situation by a bishop who was made a bishop in the traditional Rite of Ordination and continued to use the traditional Rite of Ordination, all the other "priests," which is almost 100% of the non-Eastern priests since 1968 - they're not priests, and any confessions of mortal sins to those "priests" would have to be confessed to validly ordained priests - priests who were ordained in the traditional Rite of Ordination by bishops who were made bishop in the traditional Rite of Episcopal Consecration.
And before people just rush off to receive traditional sacraments they need to be convinced on the issues as our website explains.
The information proving the New Rite of Ordination to be invalid is just another powerful element of the proof against the Vatican II sect which further demonstrates that it's not the Catholic Church and that it has been led by invalid antipopes.
This issue is also extremely significant because there are many so-called "priests" running around in the traditional movement pretending to offer Latin Masses who were ordained in the New Rite of Ordination, who are not priests, whose Masses are not valid at all; they are no more valid than Protestant services because they were ordained in the invalid New Rite of Ordination.
So we wanted to discuss some of the information on this issue as well as some of the objections people raise on this point."

The Amazing and Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe (2nd Edition) Monday 5th August, 2013. Dedication of the Church of Our Lady of the Snows


The Miraculous Image of Guadalupe - by Bro. Peter Dimond (


"I want to talk about the Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Juan Diego

It first appeared on December 12th, 1531.   According to the account, an Indian named Juan Diego had been visited by the Virgin numerous times.

Juan Diego visited by the Blessed Virgin Mary

She told him to go to the Bishop so that a chapel could be built, but the Bishop did not believe Juan. 


The Bishop asked Juan to tell the Lady to give a sign as a proof that it was truly the Mother of God who had appeared.
 Roses and the miraculous image
In response, the Virgin told Juan to gather some roses in his tilma and present them to the Bishop. 

As he did so, the roses fell to the floor and the image of Guadalupe was miraculously imprinted on his tilma.
Our Lady gives proof to the Bishop

It still exists to this day, 481 years later, and it can be visited in Mexico.
Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico

Image has no Undersketching or Underdrawing

The first miraculous aspect of the image that I want to discuss concerns the lack of an undersketch or an underdrawing.

Infrared photography has demonstrated that there is no undersketching or underdrawing on the image of Guadalupe. 

Infrared photographs show no underdrawing
That is miraculous, because as Dr. Philip Callahan, a research biophysicist from the University of Florida, explains, " It's inconceivable that an artist in the 16th century would paint a portrait without first doing a drawing on it." 

Making an undersketch prior to painting a portrait goes back to antiquity.  Thus, the fact that we have such an exquisite image with such precise details and features, and that it appears on a rough cactus fibre, is inexplicable, when you consider there is no undersketch."

Image has miraculously endured for almost 500 years

The next miraculous aspect of the image of Guadalupe that I want to discuss concerns its endurance.

Miraculous endurance of the face of the image
The tilma is made of rough cactus fibre, as I said.   This kind of cloth normally disintegrates in 15 - 30 years, but the image of Guadalupe has now remained for 481 years, with no fading or even hairline cracking of the face and the main image.
That is miraculous.
This is even more astonishing when we consider that the image was subject to candle smoke for many years, which would speed up the process of deterioration. 

Attempts to reproduce image have all failed

Indeed, attempts to make imitations copies of the image have failed.  "One famous example concerns a well known anti-apparitionist, named Jose de Ignacio Bartolache."
Imitation copy by Jose de Ignacio Bartolache

In order to try to disprove the miraculous nature of the image, he had an exact copy made on the same burlap type material, and he hung it with great fanfare in the chapel built on the site of Our Lady's final appearance.
But, after 7 short years, the painting was so unsightly and discoloured that on June 8, 1796, it was quietly moved to the sacristy.  

That's quoted in Brother Herbert Leie's , "Mother for a New World, Our Lady of Guadalupe." p.394.
That means that attempts to reproduce the image have failed miserably.


Colors have miraculously remained fresh and bright

Concerning the miraculous endurance of the image, the following quote is of interest.  I mentioned Dr. Philip Callahan earlier.
He points out that "The mantle is a dark turquoise blue ... This presents an inexplicable phenomenon, because all such pigments are known to be subject to considerable fading with time, especially in hot climates.  The Indian Mayan blue paintings are already badly faded.   The blue mantle [ on the Tilma of Guadalupe ] however, is bright enough to have been laid last week."
So the colors are miraculously fresh and bright.
There's also the amazing fact that in 1778, a considerable amount of nitric acid was spilt on the image of Guadalupe.   The workman fled in terror, expecting to have seriously damaged his country's most treasured possession.   But, to everyone's astonishment, only slight stains appeared, which can be seen in the upper right hand corner.  
That's quoted in Janet Barber, "The Tilma and it's Miraculous Image - A handbook on Guadalupe," p.61-62.
There's also the fact that in 1921, a bomb was concealed in some flowers that were placed on the altar under the image of Guadalupe.

The bomb went off and severely damaged a crucifix, but the glass that contains the image of Guadalupe, miraculously was not even damaged


Stars on the Image of Guadalupe

The next miraculous aspect of the image that I want to discuss, concerns the stars.
Some people have concluded that the stars, as well as the sunburst and the moon are add-ons, and that the original image was simpler.

Close-up showing sunburst and moon
Dr.Philip Callahan is one who holds this idea.  He still believes that the image is miraculous, but that the original image was simpler.
I believe he is incorrect on this point for two reasons.

Stars on the image represent constellations for December 12, 1531

First, it was discovered in 1983 by Dr. Juan Homero Hernandez, and Fr. Mario Rojas Sanchez, that that the stars on the image correspond precisely to the constellations of the winter sky on December 12th, 1531.

Juan Diego sees Our Lady
And, what's so fascinating is that the constellations are shown as viewed from outside the heavens, in other words, in reverse.   It's as if we have a picture from someone looking at it from outside the universe.   It's a snapshot of Heaven and Earth from the very moment that Juan Diego saw Our Lady.


Flowers and Stars on Image

Flowers correspond to volcanoes in Mexico
It becomes even more striking when we consider that the flowers on Our Lady's tunic correspond to the volcanoes in Mexico.   This discussed in detail on p.77 in a 'Handbook on Guadalupe,' published by the Academy of the Immaculate.
In other words, the interior portion of the miraculous image, which is multifaceted in its nature of instructing and awing, represents the Earth.   The turquoise mantle on the outside, featuring the miraculous stars, representing the constellations, represents the heavens.
It's the picture of the encounter between Heaven and Earth, when Our Lady appeared to Juan Diego on December 12th, 1531, and captured miraculously and still present on the cactus fibre almost 500 years later.
But what's even more amazing, is that the stars appear only on the mantle of the image, and not on the tunic, and as I said, the stars that appear correspond to the constellations in the sky on the day of December 12th, 1531.
Constellations in the sky December 12, 1531
But when people superimpose the image of Our Lady on the sky of that day, and fill in the stars for where they would have appeared if her tunic had been filled with stars, the miracle becomes even more stupendous, because the constellation Corona Borealis, meaning 'Northern Crown,' representing a crown, would appear right between Our Lady's temples.
That signifies that Mary has a crown, and that she is the Queen of Heaven.
The constellation, Virgo, signifying virginal purity, would appear over the area of her heart, signifying her immaculate and virginal heart, and the constellation, Leo the Lion, would be over her womb.

Superimposed image of Our Lady on stars that day
The lion represents Jesus Christ, because  Christ is the 'Lion of the Tribe of Juda.'   This signifies that Christ the King is present in her womb.
And there's even more.
All of this shows the Divine and indeed, Infinite Intelligence behind this miraculous production.

Divine and Infinite Intelligence behind miraculous image
In addition to all of these facts, the second reason I believe Callahan is incorrect to think that the stars are add-ons, is that he says that the stars were added in the 17th century.

However, we know that this is not true because there is a copy of the image of our Lady of Guadalupe from 1570, which was used at Lepanto, and it corresponds precisely to the image that we have now.

Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the Battle of Lepanto
That means that if the stars were added on, they must have been added on between 1531 and 1570, which is highly unlikely.   In addition, there is a famous picture of the image from the Codex Seville.   This dates to perhaps just a few years after Our Lady's appearance in 1531, and this picture shows the sunburst and corresponds greatly to the image that we have now.

All of this supports that the stars and the sunburst and the moon were part of the original image.
No evidence of fading on Virgin's features
Some are puzzled by the fact that while the face doesn't even show a hairline crack or fade, the sunburst, the stars and the moon show some evidence  of flaking.    I have an opinion about this, and I believe it fits with what we learn in Sacred Scripture.
Concerning the stars, and the sun, and the moon, we are told in Luke 21:33, that "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."
Hence, it makes sense that we would see evidence of the stars in the image, and the moon, and the sunburst fading, because in reality the heavens shall pass away, but the Virgin herself and the primary image surrounding her and her face are incorruptible, because she will shine forever in Heaven.
That would be why we see evidence of fading in the stars etc., but not in the Virgin's features.


Miraculous images in the eyes of the Virgin

The next miraculous feature I want to discuss, which might be the most miraculous feature of all, concerns the eyes of the image.
Juan Diego's image in the eyes of the Virgin

There's a fact that the image of a bearded man has been discovered in the eyes of the Virgin.
It was first discovered 1929 and again in 1951, and it was subsequently confirmed by modern science and intense investigation, the image of the bearded man with a full head of hair corresponds to pictures of Juan Diego, the Indian who saw Our Lady.

In other words, the image of Juan Diego, is microscopically captured in the Virgin's eye.  

Of course, no human painter could have ever conceived the need to put microscopic images of Juan Diego in the eyes of the Virgin, so that they would later be discovered by the advances in modern science, and it is simply impossible for any human painter to have pulled it off, because the images are simply too small to paint.

And, the presence of the images in the eyes is even more amazing, because the images correspond exactly to what happens in the human eye when it sees something.

Purkinje-Sanson Law
Jody Brant Smith, who studied the image of Guadalupe along with Dr. Callahan, is a non-Catholic.    He explains.  "Before I could understand the importance of his discovery, I needed to learn something about the physiology of the human eye, and particularly what is called the "Purkinje-Sanson Principle.

In its simplest form the Purkinje-Sanson Law states that whenever we see any object, the object is reflected in each eye, not once, but in three different places.

This threefold reflection is caused by the curvature of the eye's cornea.

Two of the reflections are always right-side up, and one is always upside down.   That's quoted in Thomas Sennett's book, "Not made by hands," p.58.  The reflections of Juan Diego in the Virgin's eye corresponds precisely to the Purkinje-Sanson Law.

Multiple reflections are found exactly as they would be found in a human eye that sees a person.

In fact, the Purkinje-Sanson Law shows that when a human being sees something, because of the differing angles of the curvature of the cornea, the various reflected images are apparently distorted in a varying degree, and in the images within the eye of the Virgin of Guadalupe, "There's is a perfect collocation and agreement with this principle."

Meeting between Heaven and Earth
The distortion of the figures even concurring with the predicted curvature of the cornea.   that is, to say, the images appear exactly as we would expect them to appear in a human eye.   That means that what we have here in the image of Guadalupe, still fresh today, on the rough cactus fibre, is the visual reproduction of that Heavenly encounter in 1531.

And, this is true on many levels.   Not only does the image miraculously capture what Juan Diego saw, it captures his vision of the Virgin and the meeting of Heaven and Earth, with the stars as they appeared in the heavens on that day, but also in the microscopic recesses of the Virgin's eye, this unspeakably amazing image captures exactly what the Virgin saw, just as it would have been captured in your eye, if you saw another person in your room.

And there's even more.

"In 1981, Jose Tonsmann, a systems engineer, electrified lovers of Mary of Guadalupe, by announcing that his computerized blow-ups of photos of her eyes had revealed microscopically small figures which he suggests could be Bishop elect Zumarraga, Juan Diego, the interpreter, Juan Gonzalez, a black woman, an Indian family, a small child and a man."

Microscopic images in Virgin's eye
In other words, this computer engineer, when he blew-up the image of the eye many times, discovered the presence of essentially a whole room full of individuals captured within the eye of the Virgin.

Dr. Escalante, a surgical ophthalmologist, considers these reflections to belong to the type which have been described by Schurning, on the back surface of the cornea, and by Volt and Hess at the centre of the lens.   Such reflections are very difficult to detect.

Dr. Escalante has also reported the discovery of small veins on both of the eyelids of the image.

In the 1970's, a Japanese optician, who was examining the eyes, fainted.

When he recovered, he said that, "the eyes were alive and looking at him."   Janet Barber, "Latest Scientific Findings on the Images in the eye - A Handbook on Guadalupe," p.90

So, this Japanese optician fainted because he thought that the eyes were human and looking at him.

We have numerous people captured microscopically in the recesses of the image of the eye.  This is undeniable proof the image is miraculous.   Only God could have done this. 

Moreover, "Opthalmologists have testified that even though they are opaque, both eyes in the image show depth and become filled with light when the ophthalmoscope light is trained into them.

They have asserted that it would be impossible to produce with paints such perfectly placed reflections in eyes offering so little space with the Virgin looking down, and on such rough material as the tilma."

That's from the same source quoted.

The scientific findings about the eyes of the image leave no doubt that the image is of Divine origin and was created by God to leave the world with a priceless gift, a picture of that encounter, the Mother of God and Juan Diego.

The Miraculous Changing Face Color of Our Lady

The next miraculous aspect that I want to discuss, concerns the face of Our Lady.

Our Lady appears as a native American
It's remarkable that at one distance, Our Lady appears to be a native American, but at another distance she appears to be of lighter skin, and in fact, of European descent.

This miraculous feature is meant to show the unity of the two people who were then coming together as one in the true faith of Christ, and the new nation that had just uprooted the diabolical Aztec culture.

The diabolical Aztec Culture

In fact, Dr. Philip Callahan explains that the image achieves this effect of appearing to be different colors at different distances, only by a miraculous feature that we see in nature.  He says, "At a distance of 6 or 7 feet, the skin tone becomes, what might be best termed indian olive/grey-green in tone.

Our Lady appears of European descent

It appears somehow the grey and caked-looking white pigment of the face and hands, combines with the rough surface of the unsized hue.

Such a technique would be an impossible accomplishment in human hands.   It often occurs in nature, however, in the coloring of bird feathers and butterfly scales, and on the elytra of brightly colored beetles.

So, what he is saying, is that the miraculous feature of a change of color at different distances, is something we see in nature on beetles and on bird feathers and on butterfly scales, and that it occurs on the tilma in a miraculous way.

Natures miracle reproduced on Our Lady's image

The pigment combine with the rough surface of the cloth to give it a different effect, yet it is still beautiful and delicate at every distance.

This is simply a miracle, and no human artist could have ever accomplished this effect.   It was fashioned by God, just as the butterfly scales are.


Temperature of the Image of Guadalupe

The next miraculous feature that I want to mention concerns the temperature.

Image remains at an even 36.5 deg C
It's remarkable that no matter what the surrounding temperature is, the image remains at an even 36.5 deg Celsius or 98.6 deg Fahrenheit, the normal human body temperature.   That's quoted in Janet Barber, "The Tilma and it's Miraculous Image."

Rebellions and Conversions

Martin Luther's rebellion spawns countless sects
As a result of the miraculous image, 8 to 9 million people were baptised into the Catholic faith in the years following her appearance in 1531

It's also worth mentioning that Martin Luther, by his rebellion against the Catholic Church, and his creation of a new kind of false Christianity, spawned countless sects which tore 5 million from the Catholic Church, was born in 1483.

Countless Protestant sects
Hernen Cortez was born two years later in 1485.   Hernen Cortez was the man who overthrew the Aztec Empire, making the miraculous conversion of the millions, which was facilitated by the image of Guadalupe, possible.

The most significant events in Luther's life was occurring at about the exact time that Hernen Cortez was accomplishing the overthrow of the Aztec Empire.
Hernen Cortez

It's almost as if, at the very moment that millions in Europe were been torn from the true Church, God was arranging it so that twice as many in the New World were being brought into it.

The Aztec Empire
The image of Guadalupe is one of the most prodigious miracles in human history.

Perhaps God gave it to Mexico, because the Aztec Empire was arguably the most wicked culture in human history.    He wanted to counteract that level of evil with something even of greater good.

Overthrowing of the Aztec Empire
The image testifies to the truth of the Catholic faith, because in her message, Our Lady directed people to the Bishop of the Catholic Church of the time, and to the traditional Catholic faith.

Let those who seek the truth, and those who love the truth and those who love the Christ, embrace this message, and the one true faith of Jesus Christ, the Catholic faith.

The one true faith of Jesus Christ - the Catholic faith

Image was a Hieroglyphic Letter to the Indians

Another miraculous aspect of the image of Guadalupe concerns the reading of the Image.   "The Indians saw something in the image of Our Lady that the Spaniards did not comprehend.

In that period, the Indians did their writing in hieroglyphics, so to them the image was a hieroglyphic letter.

Huitzilopochtli - Aztec sun god
The fact that the natives read the image is most important in understanding the purpose of Our Lady's apparitions.    To the Indians the image depicted a beautiful lady standing in front of the sun, a sign to them that she was greater than the sun god, Huitzilopochtli, whom they worshipped.

The crescent or the moon beneath her feet show their moon god, Tezcatlipoca, was less than nothing, since she was standing on it.
Tezcatlipoca - Aztec moon god

The stars they thought so much of, were only a part or a portion of her mantle.

Cross - emblem of the Spanish Friars

At her throat was a brooch with a small black cross in the centre, reminding them that this was the emblem of the Spanish Friars, and that there was one greater than she. That comes from Father Harold Rahm, "Am I not Here." P.56

Brooch with a small black cross

As we can see the intelligence that constructed the miraculous image of Guadalupe, which conveyed exactly the message that the Indians needed to hear and see, to bury their false notions about God, and their idolatrous practices, is infinite and beyond anything humans can imagine.

Miraculous image of Guadalupe causes millions to put away their idols

Reading the image caused millions to put away their idols and convert to the Catholic faith."
