Startling evidence that the ‘End Times’ are upon us! An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos met her, and she told him what she had seen. He wrote it down, but thought it to be all so unlikely that he put it away in a drawer.
Now, fifty years later, he understands he has to share the vision with others. The woman from Valdres was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation among all who knew her.
This is what she saw: “I saw the time just before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the events with my natural eyes. I saw the world like a kind of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take place just before the return of Jesus, and just before the last calamity happens, a calamity the likes of which we have never before experienced.
The Anglosphere has fallen. With the looming legalisation of same sex marriage in Australia, every major English speaking country - with the exception of Northern Ireland - will have given in to assault on marriage and the family. What is more surprising than the result of the vote is the speed with which attacks on Christianity have followed and the brazen nature of these attacks.
Businesses whose owners have opposed gay marriage have been inundated with requests to service gay weddings. Churches have been attacked and religious statues desecrated. There have been calls to remove prayers from the opening and closing of Parliament. But most seriously, there have been calls to force religious marriage celebrants to perform gay weddings.
These sorts of attacks have been seen before, all across the world, as Australia is simply following in the footsteps of other Western countries which have legalised gay marriage. The West has abandoned the very thing which propelled it to the pinnacle of civilisation - Christianity. With the fall of the Christian West a soft persecution of Christianity - which attacks Christians' rights - has begun, and a harder persecution is sure to follow. There is a danger then, that many people begin to focus too heavily on these attacks, and others even succumb to despair.
What we must remember though, is that this seeming destruction of society and the Church was prophesied by Our Lady of Good Success at Quito 400 years ago:
"As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolises the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and profaned in the fullest sense of the word. Masonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the objective of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin, encouraging the procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church. The Christian Spirit will rapidly decay, extinguishing the precious light of the Faith until it reaches the point that almost total and general corruption of customs [morals]. the effect of secular education will increase, which will be one reason for the lack of priestly and religious vocations..."
This attack on Holy Matrimony is what we have seen beginning with widespread contraception, followed by no-fault divorce and culminating in gay marriage. The destruction of marriage and the family is almost complete, with marriage no longer even being considered by most.
"The Sacred Sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed and despised. ...The demon will try to persecute the Ministers of the Lord in every possible way and he will labor with cruel and subtle astuteness to deviate them from the spirit of their vocation, corrupting many of them. These corrupted priests, who will scandalize the Christian people, will incite the hatred of the bad Christians and the enemies of the Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church to fall upon all priests. This apparent triumph of Satan will bring enormous sufferings to the good Pastors of the Church...."
The shameful scandal of paedophilia in the Church is what was here prophesied. The damnable actions of these priests have led to utter hatred of the Church and her priests and now all priests, both the holy and the perfidious, have been tarred with the same brush and good priests are now shunned and accused of paedophilia.
"Moreover, in these unhappy times, there will be unbridled luxury which, acting thus to snare the rest into sin, will conquer innumerable frivolous souls who will be lost. Innocence will almost no longer be found in children, nor modesty in women, and in this supreme moment of need of the Church, those who should speak will fall silent."
Today we see this luxury all around us as everyone seeks to have it even if it cannot be afforded. Most people now live of their credit cards and continue to spend on items of luxury with money they do not have. With the introduction of sex education and gender theories into schools and the spread of these vile ideas through children's entertainment, innocence is rarely to be found among them. And finally women have lost all sense of modesty. What began with the refusal to wear veils in churches has culminated in dressing like prostitutes. With this hyper-sexualisation of women, they often become either victims of predatory men or themselves become predators, preying on the lustful desires of men.
"The secular Clergy will leave much to be desired because priests will become careless in their sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches, which they will unduly strive to obtain. How the Church will suffer during this dark night! Lacking a Prelate and Father to guide them with paternal love, gentleness, strength, wisdom and prudence, many priests will lose their spirit, placing their souls in great danger."
Many priests today no longer care for their sacred functions and shamefully neglect the souls of those entrusted to their care. Confession is no longer preached as a necessity and oftentimes it is no longer offered with regularity. Without their sound guidance from the pulpit most today no longer understand the faith and millions have ceased to practice it.
After relating all of this all of this however, the Blessed Mother gave us these comforting words.
"This will mark the arrival of my hour. Therefore, clamour insistently without tiring and weep with bitter tears in the privacy of your heart, imploring our Celestial Father that [...] He might take pity on His ministers and bring to an end those ominous times..."
"To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions when everything will seem to be lost and paralysed. This, then, will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration."
When the attacks on Christendom are greatest, when defeat seems inevitable, when all seems lost, our Blessed Mother will be there to guide us to victory and restore her Son to His rightful place at the head of society. There is no need to misery, for hopelessness, for despair, as God has already won the great victory at Calvary. This does not mean, however, that we can simply lie down and wait for the restoration of society, as God uses human instruments to achieve His aims. What we must do first and foremost is retain the unadulterated faith handed down by the Apostles and transmit it through future generations. We must also not be ashamed to publicly profess our faith, even when it may cost us personally or professionally. And finally, we must actively seek to put Christ at the head of our society. While this may seem impossible, and even hopeless, we must keep before us the immortal and comforting words of Our Lady of Fatima:
"In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph."

Scotland’s neo-Marxist fake ‘nationalist’ government is to forcibly indoctrinate Scottish schoolkids into believing that they can “choose their own gender”.
New teaching materials created by the NHS, Scottish Government and Education Scotland advise that kids aged between five and nine-years-old should be taught the twisted ‘gender’ fantasies of cultural Marxism.
As part of the Curriculum for Excellence, the controversial guidelines say that children need to learn about gender to be able to “learn about themselves”.
The lesson plan begins by teaching kids that both sexes can partake in the same activities like baking and playing football – and that boys and girls alike can cry.
But it goes into more detail to discuss the issue of gender and instructing teachers that the lesson should be to understand gender equality and challenge gender stereotypes. That extends all the way to the crackpot ‘theory’ that ‘gender’ can be chosen.
It says that children need to “learn about what we mean by gender, that this is different from the sex we are assigned at birth”, and that “gender is about how we see and present ourselves in the world”.
It then goes on to explain that teachers should tell children: “Your gender is what you decide. You might be a boy or a girl, or maybe you don’t like to decide that.
“People might think they know your gender because of the clothes you wear, or how you behave, or the things you like to do. You are a unique person, you know who you are.”
The plan also tells children about being transgender.
Chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, Chris McGovern, believes it will confuse youngsters.
He said: “It is deeply worrying that adults are foisting this anxiety on children – it is a darkly sinister intrusion into childhood and it’s cruel.
“At this age, children still believe in goblins, fairies and dragons – they don’t understand such adult issues like gender yet, and these discussions at such a young age will be very confusing for kids.
“Teachers in Scotland are already lagging behind in teaching children how to read, write and do maths – so how can they possibly be expected to become pseudo psychiatrists? I think parents will be up in arms when they hear this is to be taught in schools.”
Scottish Conservative Shadow Education Secretary, Liz Smith MSP, agreed, saying: “It’s only right that we teach children about gender diversity and the meaning of these terms.
“However many parents might feel this is too young for their children to learn about it, and if so we need to listen to their concerns.”
One expert insists kids themselves must “lead the way” and says if they are old enough to ask the question they are therefore “ready” to hear the answer.
Dr Amanda Gummer, child psychologist and founder of Fundamentally Children, said: “It’s not that it shouldn’t be discussed – it’s very important of course.
“But it runs the risk of causing confusion, and I think there is definitely a danger that many are not ready to hear this.
“My suggestion would be to let the children lead the way – if they’re old enough to ask the question, they’re normally ready to hear the answer, but don’t ram it down their throats.”
Let’s cut through all this cowardice and drivel! This scheme is nothing sort of messing with the minds of innocent children – and all too many of those who want to fiddle with children’s minds have something else on their own….
At least four people have been killed in an shooting in Fredericton, New Brunswick, in the east of the country, according to Canadian police. The incident is unfolding.
Fredericton Police said they are responding to the incident in the Brookside Drive area of the city at about 7:30 a.m. local time Friday. Police said further information would be provided when more details are confirmed.
"The public is asked to avoid the area and stay in their homes with doors locked at this time for their safety," police tweeted.
Fredericton, the capital of in New Brunswick province, has a population of about 60,000.
Robert DiDiodato from Oakland Avenue, which connects to Brookside Drive along the city's north side, said he heard a series of "firecracker" sounds around 7 a.m.
"With the tempo, it might've been a gunshot. It was sort of like a pop, pop, pop, pop. About five minutes later, he could hear similar noises near his home.Doors are locked and everybody's inside," he said.
Firefighters and paramedics have also been deployed to the scene, Canadian broadcaster CBC reported.
Last month, roughly 400 White Helmets were evacuated from Syria by Israel, where they will then be resettled in Western countries. I had the opportunity to talk to Mr Fares Shehabi, the Member of Parliament for Aleppo, and discuss this development, as well as the Syrian situation in general.
What is your personal assessment of the current ground situation in the Syrian Civil War; how close is the Syrian Government to regaining total control of the country?
“There is no civil war in Syria. There is a war raged on Syria using radical jihadi proxies who are backed by the West & Israel and financed by KSA, Qatar, & Turkey. The Syrian army backed by the Syrian population is very close to completely liberating all of Syria from terrorists and separatists alike.”
The White Helmets are known to most Western audiences as a group created to undertake search and rescue missions for those affected by bombing, evacuate civilians from danger areas and provide emergency medical assistance. Is this an accurate description of them, and if not, how would you describe them?
“The White Helmets are a fake make up for known terror groups mainly al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the Nusra Front. Most of WH’s are Qaeda terrorists and all of its bases are within areas controlled by the Nusra. Their job is to demonize the Syrian army, beautify jihadi gangs, and provide NATO with fabricated hoaxes in order to attack Syria.”
"WE URGE EUROPEANS TO REJECT THIS STUPID MOVE AND TO PROSECUTE ALL CORRUPT POLITICIANS BEHIND IT. YOUR COUNTRIES CANNOT BE SAFE BY ALLOWING RADICAL JIHADI TRAITORS TO LIVE AMONG YOU!"
Recently Israel, acting on a request by the UK, USA and other European nations, carried out an evacuation of roughly 422 White Helmet operatives and family members to nearby Jordan, where they will be then resettled in Western countries. What is your opinion on this development?
“Fearing a scandalous exposure that will reveal the names of many foreign intelligence operatives amongst the WH’s, a decision was taken to extract them through the occupied Golan. The Syrian gov ran many successful reconciliations with thousands of armed rebels and agreed to peacefully evacuate thousands more who refused these reconciliations, hence, one can only understand this extraction as an extraction of agents and tools and not a rescue operation.”
The IDF, responsible for the evacuation, continue to say that Israel “maintain a non-intervention policy regarding the Syrian conflict”. Do you agree?
“Israel openly supports all terror groups in the south including ISIS. We have confiscated tons of Israeli weapons there and the across the border cooperation between Israel and these terror group is widely known and proven.”
Are you concerned that, following two military strikes on Syria from the United States in consecutive years, that President Trump may militarily intervene again?
“We never base our liberation of our land on any madman’s impulsive behavior anywhere in the world.”
Is there a final short message/warning you have for our European readers, perhaps relating to the resettlement of the White Helmets across Europe?
“We urge Europeans to reject this stupid move and to prosecute all corrupt politicians behind it. Your countries cannot be safe by allowing radical jihadi traitors to live among you! The White Helmets are a part of al-Qaeda and are blessed by al-Qaeda jihadi doctrine.”

Interview published at: The Voice of Europe
Just read a fascinating paper by Muhammed A. Asadi , which readers can check out HERE :
It's pretty technical, but here are some highlights :
divorced. Activity and sexual pleasure is 25% to 300% greater among married couples
compared to non-married people at various age levels (Smith 1998).
“amount” of sex among married couples is greater also than non married couples)
according to the National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) (Schaeffer 2000: 29).
As society became more permissive towards premarital sex, we saw the number of
Moorish tyranny swept over Spain after anti-Christian enemies within opened the gates of Visigothic cities to the invaders. Yet the Christian refugees who fled to the mountains of northern Spain remained true to their faith. As the armies of Pelayo and the first resistance heroes struck back, so too were wonderful churches erected in the free north of Spain.
One such is St Christine of Lena (Spanish: Santa Cristina de Lena). This is a Roman Catholic Asturian pre-Romanesque church located in the Lena municipality, about 25 km south of Oviedo, Spain, on an old Roman road that joined the lands of the plateau with Asturias.
One of the most particular elements of Santa Cristina de Lena is the existence of the presbytery elevated above floor level in the last section of the central nave, separated from the area intended for the congregation by three arches on marble columns. This separation, which appears in other Asturian churches, is not repeated in any other with a similar structure. Both the lattices over the arches and the wall enclosing the central arch were re-used from Visigothic origins in the 7th century.
This stunning video creates the church was it was well over 1,100 years ago….
An angry father slapped a man having sex with a woman in front of cricket-playing children after police failed to turn up and confront the pair.
Parents were disgusted by the couple’s actions and called 999 at least five times before the man decided to intervene. He was filmed by another onlooker, also a Muslim.
The degenerate white couple were seen having alcohol-fulled public sex on a cricket pitch in Roundhay Park, Leeds, in front of youngsters taking part in afternoon sports on Sunday.
The furious father pulls the man off his partner as they romp in the park in Leeds, West Yorkshire on a Sunday afternoon
The mother who filmed the clip and posted it to Facebook can be heard telling police that she reported the city centre sex session 30 minutes ago, but officers in West Yorkshire still had not arrived.
As she tells the operator the couple were having intercourse ‘in the middle of loads of kids playing cricket’, the woman informs them ‘they’re at it again’ after a brief break following her first call.
Informing the call handler that she’s the third person to report the obscene display, a man can be heard shouting: ‘It’s like the fifth time now.’
A youngster in cricket whites can be seen running over as the father slaps the man across his face
A witness said ‘fair play to the dad’, adding the couple ‘well and truly had it coming.’
Officers admitted on Monday that they did not arrive until 46 minutes after they were called. The onlookers should have told them that someone had made a homophobic or racist comment – that would’ve got them there in 60 seconds!
We have heard a lot recently from the so-called ‘counter-jihad’ propagandists about the ‘Muslim threat’ to homosexuals. Will they now start banging on about the ‘Muslim threat to exhibitionists’?
The incident highlights the fact that part of the reason for the tension between Muslim communities and the rest of Britain is that most Muslims remain true to traditional and decent values, including the family and opposition to the sexual licence that pervades the West. The majority community, in the meantime, is sinking ever deeper into a morass of decadence and degeneracy.
Hence the pair of exhibitionists in this outrageous incident are white. The police who couldn’t be bothered to turn up represent authority. The parents who did NOT intervene to shield their children’s innocence are white. And the people who took action to restore decency are clearly Muslims.
Good for them! And shame on all the rest!
Why, wondered President Donald Trump, have Washington politicians decided to risk American lives to defend Montenegro? It’s a good question. He should ask the president who oversaw Montenegro’s entry into the alliance: Donald Trump.
The president went on Fox News and agreed with host Tucker Carlson’s question: “Why should my son go to Montenegro to defend it from attack?” The proper answer is the latter shouldn’t. The U.S. government should risk its citizens’ lives and squander their wealth only to protect their nation, not to conduct grand foreign crusades, even for Montenegro.
Indeed, the Balkan nation is a good example of the folly of NATO expansion. The alliance was created as Europe fell into the Cold War. The purpose was to prevent the Soviets under Joseph Stalin from doing what Adolf Hitler attempted: dominate Eurasia. Hence, Washington focused on protecting the major states of Western Europe.
Moscow’s control reached into Central Europe. Much of the Balkans fell under independent Communist control. However, successive U.S. administrations did not attempt to roll back Soviet influence. Such Communist control was tragic, but not important to American security and certainly not worth a war. Even when subject peoples rose in Poland, East Germany, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia, Washington properly did nothing militarily.
The collapse of the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact ended the need for NATO. For a time the alliance desperately looked for a new purpose, as officials proposed that the organization promote student exchanges and fight the drug trade. Then the alliance decided to get into out-of-area operations—meaning wars irrelevant to both American and European security, such as Kosovo, Afghanistan and Libya—and act as a geopolitical Welcome Wagon for nations newly escaped from the Soviet Empire.
The Clinton administration rapidly pushed to the Russian border. No one seriously considered what would be necessary to protect, say, the Baltic States. In fact, expansion advocates appeared to forget that NATO ultimately was based on Article 5, the promise to defend member states.
Moving into the Balkans meant bringing in ever less important states, such as Albania and Slovenia, with militaries of 8,000 and 7,250, respectively. Adding them to the transatlantic alliance was charity, not security. So was the entry of postage stamp-sized Montenegro, best known for the filming of the James Bond flick Casino Royale. Podgorica had the reputation of being a bit of a gangster state and boasted a military of just 2,000. In contrast, New York City alone has 34,000 uniformed cops.
Indeed, Montenegro brought to mind the mythical Duchy of Grand Fenwick, which featured in the novel, The Mouse that Roared. Official claims about the alleged benefits of Podgorica’s entry were examples of fake news. NATO acted like a city civic club to which all respectable gentlemen sought membership. No longer did Washington limit its military guarantees to nations which actually advanced U.S. security.
But Russia’s brutal treatment of Ukraine reminded Americans of the threat of war, and the fact that in any conflict the United States would do the bulk of the fighting. Even if the conflict was triggered by a member state such as Montenegro.
In fact, Podgorica seems unlikely to directly trigger a war. The president rather oddly warned: “by the way, they have very strong people—they have very aggressive people. They may get aggressive, and congratulations, you’re in World War III.” No doubt, it is theoretically possible that the vast, aggressive, powerful Montenegrin legions might launch themselves towards Moscow, but that isn’t too likely. Montenegrin politicians, including the prime minister—shoved aside by the president at least year’s NATO summit—do not appear to have entirely lost their minds.
Still, the Balkans well illustrates why alliances can be dangerous. Otto von Bismarck, the famed “Iron Chancellor” of Germany, warned that “the great European War would come out of some damned foolish thing in the Balkans.” He worked to prevent that war, but his successors were not so circumspect. In 1914 two militarized blocs faced each other and an assassination by a Serb of the Austro-Hungarian heir apparent lit the fuse to what became World War I.
In NATO’s case the fuse most likely would be Georgia or Ukraine, both of which face Russia militarily and would be tempted to use America’s backing to push their own territorial claims. And the question as to why Americans should die for Tbilisi or Kiev would be as relevant as why anyone should die for Podgorica.
However, now that Montenegro is a member of NATO, the United States really can’t declare that Article 5 doesn’t apply to it. The alliance doesn’t work if some members really aren’t members. And nations learn their status only if war starts, when they find out if American aid will be forthcoming. The most meaningful decision point is deciding whether to admit a country as a member.
So why did Washington welcome Podgorica? Ask President Trump. In June last year the mountainous state joined NATO. Although the invitation was extended by the Obama administration, Senate approval only came in March 2017. The president could have stopped the process.
Moreover, at the recently concluded summit, the alliance invited Macedonia to join. It is yet another small, mountainous and landlocked country—and perhaps equally aggressive. With two million people and 8,000 soldiers, it obviously won’t be defending America. Macedonia won its independence amid the ruins of Yugoslavia in 1991. Since then Skopje has been mired in a bitter dispute with Greece over use of the name “Macedonia.”
In this case nationalism verges on the silly rather than sinister. Athens claimed the ancient legacy of Alexander the Great and accused the new Macedonian nation of revanchism. In joining the United Nations, Macedonia was officially called the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). In June, Athens and Skopje finally agreed to the name “Republic of North Macedonia.” After which Greece dropped its veto of Skopje’s NATO membership.
No doubt, (North) Macedonia is looking forward to receiving rather than providing cash, prestige and security. Its greatest security concern is unrest within its ethnic Albanian minority, which led to an armed insurgency a number of years ago. Domestic politics also has been rough and unsettled, with a new, more liberal government taking over only last year.
But what does (North) Macedonia bring to American security? Why should Americans die for Macedonia? If the answer isn’t obvious for Montenegro, it isn’t apparent for Macedonia either.
Presumably, the president really is disturbed by the prospect of America being dragged into an unnecessary conflict by the folly of NATO members at the periphery of Europe. However, he is now the single most important person in determining who joins the alliance. He is president, not critic. He should start acting like one by putting his policies into action.
Indeed, virtually every one of the administration’s military and NATO initiatives undercut his criticism of the Europeans. The United States is increasing its own military outlays, deploying more troops and equipment to Eastern Europe, and adding new members. All of these create further disincentive for European NATO members to do more militarily both in and out of the alliance. They are not fools. Why respond to U.S. demands when U.S. actions make doing so unnecessary?
President Donald Trump is correct: it is long overdue for friendly nations to take over responsibility for their own defense. But his actions make that less likely and his rhetoric discredits the case for them to do so. He certainly is America’s most blusterous chief executive. He also is likely to be one of its least effective.

Do you have sons?
Regardless of what modern society tells you, please remember that:
- Your boys are not rapists in waiting.
- Your boys are not inherently violent or misogynistic.
- Your boys are not privileged by nature of their sex.
- Your boys are not broken and in need of being fixed.
- Your boys do not need to be drugged up.
- Your boys are not inherently toxic and there is nothing toxic about their masculinity.
Just take a look at the rise in suicides and mass shootings, all committed by young men. This is not due to their ‘toxic masculinity’
This is because these young men are desperate and nihilistic. They grew up from boyhood in today’s toxic society that shames them for their masculinity, emasculates them, feminizes them, weakens them and then bully, attack and ridicule them for being weak and docile.
A lot of these young men exposed to this toxic conditioning by a feminist society and in a desperate attempt to gain acceptance, or cast off their natural manhood and masculinity, eventually fall victim to:
- Mass murders and shooting
- Becoming drag queens, or
- Undergoing gender reassignment to become women.
On the one hand, men are branded with the toxic masculinity label while at the same time being ridiculed with the phrase “masculinity so fragile.”
It is no wonder that men today have their psyche so fragmented that they are desperate, aggressive, confused and nihilistic. You would be the same if you were subjected to decades of the conflicting messages and conditioning from your childhood
To raise manly men, your sons need to know that it is okay for them to be strong, masculine, rugged, and manly men.
Let them know that their assertiveness, their bold and daring behaviour is not aggression.
Let them know that being boisterous and reckless is okay. It means that they have a sense of adventure and willingness to take risks.
Masculinity and manhood are gifts from God, so the dignity and genius of men should be celebrated, not suppressed.
Do not believe the lie of feminism that young men being masculine and gentlemanly equals “toxic masculinity” or that young women being modest and feminine equals “female subjugation”
Instead of suppressing and demonizing the inherent masculinity and manhood of your sons, foster and nurture it.
Protect your sons from modern society’s relentless attacks on manhood and masculinity by:
- Saying to hormone blockers,
- Saying no to social engineering and trans and LGBTQ conditioning,
- Removing them from environments, groups and societies, such as the American Boy Scouts that emasculates them and suppresses their masculinity,
- Raising with strong male role models of masculinity,
- Allowing them to simply be boys.
There is indeed a crisis of masculinity in today’s world and the restoration of authentic manhood and masculinity in men begins within the home, with YOU – the parents.
St Joseph, model of manhood and masculinity, pray for us!
