Catholic priest condemns abuse of minors by priests

Fr. John urges the public to alert the relevant authorities if they know that someone who has presented himself for Holy Orders, “has an issue."

Roman Catholic Priest, Fr. Brancker John, is condemning the abuse of minors by priests and clerics of the church.

He said the church has a zero tolerance policy with regards to the abuse of children and referred to this quote from an address by Pope John Paul the second to Cardinals of the United States in 2002.

“I have been deeply grieved by the fact that Priests and religious who’s vocation it is to help people live holy lives in the sight of God, have themselves cause such suffering and scandal to the young, because of the great harm done by some Priests and religious the church itself is viewed with distrust and many are offended at the way in which the churches leaders are perceived to have acted in this matter.”

He further quotes Pope John Paul the II as saying, “The abuse which has caused this crisis is by every standard wrong and rightly considered a crime by society. It is also an appalling sin in the eyes of God. People need to know that there is no place in the Priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young.”

Fr. John said the Catholic church, locally and globally, has been affected by accusations and confessions of abuse of minors by clerics and still faces many challenges locally, in its efforts to address the issue of sexual abuse of minors.

He outlined three major challenges faced by the church in this regard.

Firstly, he noted that people still love and trust their priests.

“Therefore, those abused by clerics or those who are aware of abuse of minors by priests may be reluctant to come forward and report the matter,” he said. “The other side of that love and trust is the preparedness to send the child to meet with the priest alone, not knowing if that priest is suffering with paedophilia.” he pointed out.

Fr. John pointed to a lack of awareness of the effects of abuse of the victim as another challenge which the Church faces in addressing the issue.

“Some people still make comments to the effect that as long as there was no penetration of the female sexual organ, that it really is not a big deal,” he said.

The church also has to deal with the issue of the selection of men for holy orders, the Catholic priest stated.

“We really do not know whom we are getting as priests,” he said. “A man may seem well on the surface but underneath might be carrying quite a bit of baggage. That man may be abused as a minor himself or may have gone through some difficulties in his early life that have affected him psychologically…”

He further explained, “He will be ordained and sent to work with people including innocent children. This is a challenge for the church and the church depends on the honesty of the candidates for priesthood and she also depends on the knowledge of the general public to address this challenge.”

He urged the public that if they are aware of or know that someone has an issue and has presented himself for Holy Orders, “we should raise that issue with the relevant authorities.”

    One day, when you die you will see how important the priests are to God and to Christianity, people in general, why they should be celibate and you criticized them, scoffed and scorned them.
    St. Paul told us there will always be people like you and pay you no mind.(Facts).

    If that above is directed at me. Be informed Peter whom your religion claimed to be the “first pope” had his wife, he was married! I cannot find the scripture which said Jesus went to the house of “Peter Mother-in -law; some preacher reading me can correct me if I am wrong.

    Now if Peter was not married, how on earth could he have a mother-in-law? If I am not wrong Jesus healed some with a fever in the house. If not all some of Jesus disciples were married men.

    One time I wrote something regarding eunuchs DNO did not print it but unless one is born a eunuch devil or angel when nature calls the rape and sodomy of children will occure!

      “St. Paul told us there will always be people like you and pay you no mind.”(Facts).

      Facts the lies you tell in the pile of garbage you write fades me not, if Paul told you to stay away from people like me; here is what he said about people like you. In Romans:16:17, 18.

      ” Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions, and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (18): For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but there own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

      That is precisely what Rome has done to the simple feeble minded people you!

      When you said God did not create the Protestants, they went and open their church, you were causing division. So, you see, it is one thing to know the word of God, and it is another to believe idiots like you who are schooled in Catholicism. I try read and understand the word, hence the lies you write has no effect on me!

    “You are not a Catholic. He did not tell the protestants to pray to His Blessed Mother. For one, He did not establish the protestant churches. These people decided to form their own church.”(Facts).

    Are you not tired of making a fool of yourself, by writing so much foolishness, lying through your teeth? Are you not tired of me exposing your lies? Quote me a scripture where the Lord Jesus told you, or your pope to pray to his mother!

    Let me tell this during the Mary’s pregnancy, a relative of hers I believe with the same name Mary went to visit with her Jesus moved within her, the same as babies move in their mother today. A conversation ensued: the visitor proclaimed Hale Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed are you among women, bless is the fruit of thy womb!

    Your pope, and priests turn that into a prayer, but the visitor was simply complementing Mary! So, again quote me where Jesus told you to pray to his mother You are now lying on God!

      Cease repeating what others state and provide only your comments. What I have stated is correct. You cannot change what Our Almighty Father has ordained and what Our Lord Jesus Christ ordained for His One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church which He established and for His Blessed Mother that she should be honored.
      Cease making a negative fuss over my Catholic Church and Its devotions. I have stated that one day you will find out the truth which Our Lord will reveal to you. You will also see The Mother of God, Beautiful Lady with a crown of twelve stars on her head. Be happy, she is also praying for you.
      The Catholic Church has the answers. This is also a book written by a convert. Why do you not make it your business to get some of those books and read them? God may convert you and change your heart.

      By the way, my good, precious name is not for sale and to be given to strangers. It is worth much more than gold and money.

      Mary was told that her cousin Elizabeth was with child and visited her to also give her the good news of bearing the baby Jesus.
      The Catholic Church, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit made The Hail Mary a prayer. It is fitting to her, who said, “Every generation will call me blessed.”

      A visionary said, when Our Lady appears to them and they pray The Our Father, She prays it with them. When they pray the Hail Mary, she does not pray with them. However, when they pray, “Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus”, she smiles. Is this not nice and interesting? :)

      When she appears to them, She comes in the Sign of the Cross and says: “Praised be Jesus My Dear Children. My Son Jesus sent me.”
      When she is departing, she says, Thank you, My Dear Children for coming.” Same Sign of the Cross. Just beautiful!

      Do not be envious and critical. What you do not know and cannot comprehend, do not deny it. There is much, much more to share with you and others.

    (To Out Of The South).

    The word Catholic Church in reference to the word simply means the “foundation of all Churches” and has nothing to do with “Roman Catholic Church. ” If you read all of the new Testament you will only find that when Paul: and notice his name is not Rev. Paul; nevertheless whenever he made reference to any Church, he identified them according to their geographic location.

    He may have said “the church in the South, as in Dominica, or the church in Wesley in the north.” In any event he was talking about a body of people. The confusion came about when some lying Italian or whoever made the claim, that Peter was the first pope! No such thing that is a lie!

    They made that claim, based on “thou art Peter upon this rock I will bullied my Church! Do not allow the lies of false religion to misguided you because Christianity is real,based on the word of God!

    Think in terms first to the Jew, and then to the Gentiles!

      You have gravely erred and can cause people to go astray. Those who have common sense should know that Our Lord Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace would never have left us all those different churches. After the Catholic Church, those that were formed by their leaders have caused division, disunity and lack of love to today.
      He established one Church and it is named The Catholic Church which means universal.
      This was (and still is) what Our Lord meant for the world. He prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane that all might be one. What happened? We cannot be one with all those different churches.
      There was ONE CHURCH during the time of St. Paul’s preaching. St. Peter was the head of It. This is the Catholic Church.
      Do you know about Luther and Henry VIII who formed their own church and the reason for it? Do your research.
      Do not teach propaganda. You should know not everyone will believe you. Furthermore, you are totally wrong. I reiterate, one day you will find out.

    Yes, the church should be held accountable for the type of men they ordain, especially if there has always been complaints about that person within the community. As a victim of abuse by a Msgr I believe its about time that the church pay close attention to all priest.

      Did you report it? The Church cannot know, i.e., the Bishop if you did not report it. Do not sit back and complain and make such statements when you did nothing about it. Some people allow themselves to be abused. If you realize that such a thing may occur, or is about to occur and it occurred once, you should report it. You should also remove yourself from such a situation and not return.
      The same as women. They are abused and they remain in that situation only to be abused over and over again as if they are enjoying the abuse.. No one can help you, can help them if they remain in the situation.
      Years after, as adults they came forth with their complaint. In view of the number of years this occurred, the Courts should not have allowed it. There should have been a statute of limitation. It is because it is the Church, the persecuted Church why the Courts allowed it.
      What gets me angry is, some governments legislated so-called same sex marriage. Just imagine!

    “FILE – In this July 30, 2014, file photo, St. Paul-Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt speaks at his office in St. Paul, Minn. On Monday, June 15, 2015, the Vatican said Pope Francis accepted the resignations of Nienstedt and Auxiliary Bishop Lee Anthony Piche after prosecutors charged the archdiocese with having failed to protect children from unspeakable harm from a pedophile priest.”

    You can stay in Dominica, and run off your mouth, it is not going to make a bit of difference, human, male, and female; priest, pope bishop, and nun, all should have husbands and wife’s. The Bible never told you all not to have sex in marriage. The fact that you all are guided by the philosophy of man, that is why you are unable to leave helpless boys and girls alone!

      But they approve of the homosexual lifestyle and marriage. They are also allowed to adopt children to live under that condition with two men relationship and two women relationship. You note the hypocrisy? To them this lifestyle is something great, is acceptable, applauded and encouraged.
      Let me inform you. Think of this seriously. On the day they die to Judgment Day, those authorities will pay for this abomination which they allow in the land and legislate, in addition to allowing them to adopt children.

        Facts, even though, politicians such as Obama, has condoned homosexuality, and lesbianism that cannot make the practices or behavior correct: because; God said “he is the same today yesterday, and forever!”

        If God hate the sin of homosexuality, and lesbianism so much that more than three thousand years ago, he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of that sin, destroying thousands of homosexuals what make anybody believe God has changed because some politicians recognized that filth, where man marrying man and woman marrying woman.

        In Ephesians 6:12 we read ” For we wrestle not against flesh, and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

      Your views can be so dumb at time I wonder…….having husbands and wife keeps people from being sexual abusers? Check your facts! A sex abuser will post themselves where they believe they can obtain the best victims. Marriage doesn’t solve problems. People do have a choice to marry or not to marry. Pastors marry yet they have a high rate of divorce and remarriage and divorce and some also are sexual abusers of children. We need to stop side stepping and concentrate on the main issue in order to identify abusers among our children and stop the culture of sexual abuse that continues to pleague our communities. It is not a church issue or a political issue it is a people issue and we need to point the finger in the right direction at the abusers.

        You are correct. It is a people issue. They keep hitting on the Catholic Church as if they are living a godly life. We know it is not so.
        Some of them appear to have no sense. I have heard some who are divorced say, the Church should allow the priests to marry. How stupid. I simply reply, “But you took a marriage vow and are divorced. What happened?
        They do not know, the Church does not force them to be priests; does not force them to remain in the priesthood. They willingly approached the Church to become priests. They have the opportunity before they take their final vow to rescind.
        They made a vow before God and should know they are to keep their vows just as married people make a vow, for better or for worse…
        If it happens that those priests feel they can no longer be a priest, they should leave the priesthood.
        Our Lady told Father Gobbi of Italy who received interior locutions from her. : “It is better that they leave rather than embarrass the Church.”

        Try to see if you can get the book, “To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”, I got it from the Marian Movement of Priests in Toronto when I attended their retreats. I have been very busy and so I have not been able to attend recently. I plan to resume attendance.
        Based on this book, we pray and have retreats before the Blessed Sacrament. There are also matters for all Catholics in this book. There is a small one, a guideline with the prayers of the Marian Movement of Priests.

        There are some good priests who are quite happy in the priesthood. They are very active also giving prayer gatherings and retreats, bringing souls closer to God and Our Lady and the Church. Some of them are on EWTN – TV and Radio. I love their programs. They are extremely inspiring. I call them faith boosters and builders.

        God bless you!

      I have stated to a few people, I know what I am going to write but God knows how much.
      You read books and other literature. You view TV for hours. You also chat for hours. Does anyone complain about you?
      Since I have been writing to others and also on DNO the Lord has multiplied my views and words. It is said, “Give God an inch, He will take a foot.” He wants the world especially D/cans to know about these things. God speaks to us regardless of status.

Such people do nothing for nothing or shall I say, something for nothing. I should consider that; also writing. :) Of course not to DNO. :lol: But later elsewhere. My book will be forthcoming, thanks be to God.
        God has endowed me with a gift/talent which He prompts me to take advantage of. When the Holy Spirit prompts and move you, you cannot resist Him.
        You practice the faith as you should; be loving, kind, generous, respectful and other godly virtues and God will bless and grace you with that gift. He will also erase any thought of envy of others from your heart.

    I appreciate Fr. John challenging the public to help keep men they know have a problem with pedophilia from receiving Holy Orders.

    Obviously if you know a man who has such tendencies is seeking ordination it is proper to share what you know with the Bishop as soon as possible.

    Fr. John’s first concern is for the children who may be damaged for life.

    He also is concerned for the reproach a small percentage of priests are bringing upon the church. These men are not typical of the majority of priests who are dedicated men.

        He is correct. It is only a small percentage in comparison to the numerous priests worldwide.
        I hope you are living a godly life. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Too many do not even go to Church; do not pray and live ungodly lives. They reject God and they have the audacity to speak ill against the priests.
        Attend to your soul and ensure you save it. This is what is important. Do not let the devil take charge of your heart to forget yourself, your sins and look at the frailties of others. It is a grave mistake.
        Leave others alone. The Catholic Church with its members will take care of Itself and its priests, even the fallen ones. God is love, compassionate, merciful and forgiving.

      Do not generalize, judging a whole lot rather than one or a few who are the culprits/perpetrators.

      If a man says the Lord has called him to a ministry my church interviews him to see if it can find evidences of the call in his life. There is always a margin for error especially if the officials have had an opportunity to observe his life.

      The problem is too many people follow a church instead of the Lord. They think if the priest or pastor says this is true or that is true it must be so. They have been taught not to question the church so they dare not think for themselves. The Lord Jesus said “If any man follow me he shall not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12) I encourage you to read your Bible. Begin by reading St. John’s Gospel. Believe what it says. Cling to every statement.

      The Bible says: “To the law and to the testimony. If they speak not according to this Word it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20)

        That is the one of the most truthful statement of the twenty-first century!

        When people preach, and teach the doctrine of religion the things that is taking place by the followers of Roman Catholicism are compelled to happen. For they teach the doctrine of man and not of God.

        A very good example is the nonsense which Facts wrote here recently. Nothing that lady said about the Virgin Mary are found in the written word of God; the Bible. She made the claim that the earthly mother of our Lord Jesus is called by different names, including Queen of Heaven.

        There is no place in the Bible where reference, or anywhere Jehovah God, and his Son mentioned a Queen of heaven. It is all about the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (The Holy Sprit). All she has written is simply rubbish!

      You must know that people are sinful, some worst than others. People have a tendency to sin. This originated from the fall of Adam and Eve.
      Priests are people too. They do have temptations as everyone else. When it gets bad is to live out the temptation.
      Satan tempts. The problem is when people are tempted, they should pray fervently to God to help them get over it. If they dwell on it then they will live it out.
      You should pray to God for enlightenment about this. He will reveal it to you.
      There was a very nice parish priest in the parish I reside. He has since been transferred. The priests only remain approximately 7 years in a parish in Canada/Toronto. I gave him some religious matters I got when I attended a pilgrimage. One of it is about Holy Water. He told me he blesses his place of residence frequently.
      We must help our priests to also remain holy by praying for them. How many Catholics have done so? How many of them do so?

      There was a Priest who was transferred to another parish. He enjoyed good jokes and would give some.

    Father Reggie was dealt an injustice by the church to save its own skin. Father Reggie was fraudulently tried and crucified by the church.
    I am not presuming that Father Reggie is a saint, because I do not have the all seeing eye, but it was a classic she said he said situation with no witnesses, no evidence.
    Oh, by the way, there is a certain priest in the south of the country that a don’t like, my islike of him suddenly caused me to recall some repressed memory that he raped me 23 time when i was just 3. Could the Bishop please fire him? Please?

    • June 15, 2015

      Of course you were counting the times the priest raped you and you made a mental note of it.

      The memory was supressed for years. When it suddenly popped up the number “23” came up with it, along with the memory that you were only three.

      You are a liar and a potty mouth.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.

      What happened was the pressure placed on him. It was not only the Church but some other people. Recall that it was posted through the Media. It could have been blown out of proportion. The Church succumbed to all the publicity and negative comments.
      That woman and her mother made much of it. I heard they wanted money. You know, God will deal with them in time. They will not escape and even while they are still living. So are those who scandalized the good name of the Catholic Church. God is patient for now.
      If you read DNO’s archives, you will note the numerous comments pro and con.
      In my heart I felt the same way. However, due to the publicity, Fr. Reggie was dealt a hard blow.
      God is with him. He did not forsake Fr. Reggie. Please pray for him.

      He is. Our Lord called him father of lies.He is. Our Lord called him father of lies. If you read “the lives of the saints” you will know how much he tempted them. He even appeared as a beautiful man. He once appeared to a priest dressed as St. Anthony and told him he is wasting his time that God does not exist. There is so much to state and write about.
      Among other saints, men and women, he would harass St. Teresa Avila. There was a time she saw him hanging over her bed. She looked up, saw him and said: “Oh its you!” She went right back to sleep. This one always makes me laugh.

    It pays to read Catholic matters especially the messages of The Ever Blessed Virgin Mary, The Mother of God, Our Spiritual Mother, Queen of Heaven and Earth, Queen of The Most Holy Rosary, Queen of Peace, Our Dear Blessed Lady, as Catholics call Her.
    The Mother of God has many titles as bestowed upon Her by Her Blessed Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ who it is said, according to the visionaries, “He refuses nothing to Her when She prays for us and pleads for us, as our Intercessor before The Throne of Her Blessed Son, Our Lord. She has stated, “If it is the Adorable Will of Her Blessed Son, it will be granted.” I have some of this information.
    This should give you an idea of Her Heavenly Spiritual Status.
    Catholics should know the Litany of The Blessed Virgin Mary and the many names by which She is called. One of it is, “Help of Christians.”
    ”I have read, a few she especially likes is “Queen of The Most Holy Rosary” and “Queen of Peace.”

All religions have their literature and such literature is so mis-leading and our people are so gullible that they will kill for what they believe in whether it’s christianity, islam, judaism, buddhisim, or what have you. If you really have to research, all forms of religions had a saviour and a God. In truth, all religion is man-made and that’s a fact. The problem is that we have not taken the time out to research the truth or maybe we are not radical enough to do so. We prefer to conform and be misled rather than shaking off this oppressive system off our lives. We will never be free as a people until we denounce these religions or control systems.

      your name does not speak for itself, there is no fact in the church of rome,,, the catholic church doctored the bible to their own understanding, the bible said all have sinned and fall short of his glory, we know that jesus was born not of sin. the bible tells us through him we cannot enter the kingdom, jesus is the only man which was born pure after adam and eve.
      the catholic church cause its members to worship mary(a sinner), they used the rosary, an idol used to worship and pray to mary… yes, mary should be respected because she played an integral part in jesus development as an infant and she was choosen by god. but the bible never allow us to worship or pray to her.

      Prove me wrong when I say you cannot produce any such scriptures, and as for the different names you talk about she has that is also a lie, some you conceive in your mind, you need to stop lying, especially where it pertains to the doctrine of the Lord Jesus because it will ultimately destroy you!

        Show me a scripture where the Bible speaks of such a place. That is not even written in the Roman Catholic Bible! Anything taught regarding God which cannot be substantiated by the written word in the Bible, it is satanic, and of Satan himself the father of all lies!

        You will have to search the Four Gospels to get it when the Archangel Gabriel came to her. It will take time to explain it. Get the book: “The Secret of the Rosary” written by St. Louis de Montfort”. There are other books, “Devotion to Mary”. You can Google them and may get them.
        Purgatory is a place of atonement where souls God forgave of their frailties will be purified. There are a few passages which tell us but some have overlooked them.
        The Word “Hell” is also not in the Bible and you believe it.
        There is one Holy Bible which the Catholic Church had/has. When Martin Luther and others left the Catholic Church, they took some with them. They took out some chapters and kept what suited them.
        One day, God will reveal all this to you and all others. We will see the truth of it all when we die. Believe me, as a Catholic, I am correct.

        Francisco, I recognize that it is difficult for you to comprehend the Catholic Church beliefs and devotions to especially the Mother of God. I have said what I could. You should make a note of what is stated. Then pray to God to reveal the truth to you. Whatever I state, I realize I cannot force you to believe it for you are a non-Catholic. I will say this:

        Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen!

        No one on earth has that power to help us, lead us and closer to the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
        There is a lot to say about Her; too much which requires a lot of space.
        She knows you and your name and is praying for every God-created child on earth. Better believe it.

        Difficult to comprehend? Of course, you should pray to Our Lord. No one said you should not. He is our Lord and Savior. His Mother has a special place in Heaven, as Mother of Our Lord, our Spiritual Mother. He gave her this name.
        Think of this:

        Our Almighty Father is Our Father In Heaven
        Our Lord Jesus Christ is our brother.
        The Blessed Virgin Mary is His Mother.

        What does that make Her to us, not Our Spiritual Mother?
        It is so simple yet some do not comprehend it.
        Our Lord gave Her to us when He said on the cross: “”Behold your mother.”
        Do not doubt or deny it.
        As it is said: “God began with Mary. Why don’t you?”
        He came through Her and this is the means that He chose we will come/return to Him (Catholic).
        The usual, pray to God. Too many of you “depend on your own understanding” (Holy Bible) and deny them instead of praying to God to reveal what you cannot comprehend.
        Does it not make sense to pray to God and ask him to reveal them to you?

        The Memorare of St. Bernard

        Remember, O most gracious virgin Mary that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petition but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen!

    She comes as Queen of Peace. If we recite the Holy Rosary daily, be it once a week (hopefully more :) ), it will help us obtain eternal salvation for it contains, “The Incarnation, Life, Passion, Death, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Our Lord. “ Just as the Holy Mass, The Sacrifice of The Mass and The Celebration of The Mass.
    She gave “three messages” to the little children at Fatima.”
    It is said all has been revealed. The last one is in question as to whether it was truly revealed.
    A few years ago I heard on a Toronto TV Station, as broadcasted of Third Secret which was revealed. When I heard it, I personally said, hopefully through inspiration, “That is not it!”
    Why? I based my conclusion on, as it was stated, in those days, when the Three Secrets were told to a Pope and he read them, especially the last one, he fainted.
    Well, if he fainted it had to be really a terrible one that would eventually shake the Church and the world with this News.

      Yes, that is another made up lie by Rome to get thousand of people to go to Lauds, and drinkink water from a man made spring, and called it holly water, to make money.

      Again, show me a part of Scripture where the Bible speaks of holly water, or anything like that! You see, false religion do things, and say things teach them to brainwashed idiots like you, you who believe their nonsense, and keep yourself in bondage. The Lord Jesus Christ never told anybody to pray to his mother. That is why it is written in the Bible “for in vane they worship me.”

      In Dominica, Catholics roll rosary beads, prying saying as many hail-Mary, yet prayers are not answered, and the poverty in Dominica to some extent is the result of that! Only God answers prayer!

        My brother, it’s not just Catholics but rather Christianity (which is a branch of the Catholic church), was forced on our forefathers and the two other major religions, Islam and Judaism. All three were part and parcel of the slave trade. Religion does not and cannot liberate us. I don’t care how much of a christian one says he or she is, that will get one no where. All these teachings are false and continues to keep us in bondage and poverty as a race of people. That is why it is hard to liberate ourselves from these religions because they are control mechanisms ( to keep one in bondage and not knowing one’s identity.). When will we start researching our African history and become acquainted with truth? The bible, as you mentioned before was used to justify slavery so why do you think it will deliver or liberate anyone?
        I used to be a “christian” but when I began researching my African history I had to denounce that false religion. I am not affiliated with any controlled system.

        You are not a Catholic. He did not tell the protestants to pray to His Blessed Mother. For one, He did not establish the protestant churches. These people decided to form their own church.
        Much of what He has stated to the visionaries after He resurrected was really for everyone but some of you formed your own churches through disobedience. Therefore, He told it to those who are faithful Catholics, who remained in the Catholic Church.
        If you cannot comprehend and refuse to, I cannot make it any more explicit for you to comprehend. I will reiterate, one day you will see the truth. May you say, I told you so but you refused to believe and even scoffed at it and scorned it.
        God knows, sees and hears all things. God gave you a free mind to believe what you want. He will not touch that free mind. He knows I told you. One day, when He judges you, He will reveal it all to you. May it not be too late for you to believe.

      Note: I stress Roman Catholic Religion, and not Church, since religion and Church are totally different.

      Church is a body of people who praise, and worships God. Jesus Christ is the head of the Church with headquarters in heaven, and not in Rome. As long as one accept the fact that Jesus Christ died on the cross, buried resurrected, and ascend into heaven, that’s all that is required to become a Christian. The crap the Roman Catholic preach and teach people like you has nothing to do with God!

      As Paul said in Romans, “that which he preach was not taught to him by any man.” I will leave it there, and advised you to do as God instructed people to do which is written in 2 Timothy:15 ” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

      The reason I can refute all the lies you wrote, and the lies taught you by some so called priest out of Rome, is because I’ve done what is written in 2 Timothy:15, I am very bold about what I wrote because the lies you have written is not, and cannot be found in the Bible.

    There is speculation that the Third Secret had to do with some terrible event rather than the attempted assassination of the Holy Father, Pope John Paul !!.
    There is speculation and I feel within my heart it may have something to do with the pedophile priests and the child abuse cases which has shocked the Church and the world. This is shock enough to make a Pope feel distressed and faint.
    What else could it be? I hope those as I who have assumed so are correct.
    It must be known and others reminded that people join an enterprise for their own reasons. Some are not authentic reasons.
    The same applies for those priests in the Catholic Church who abused children. Some of them had that tendency which was obviously not known. They may have thought that they could combat this feeling but they were wrong.
    As it is said: “When thou comest into the service of the Lord, prepare thyself for temptation”; likewise persecution.

  20. The Real Facts
    June 14, 2015

    It is my feeling that when this child abuse became known to the Bishops, they were at a loss on how to handle it.
    I am certain that they counseled those priests who vowed it would not recur and so some were transferred only to continue.
    It must be known that the Church is not quick to fire/dismiss their priests as those who own businesses will do to their staff if they commit some infraction. This is the reason I feel it was kept a secret.
    In so doing, as some who wanted money from the Church went public with it. The more who heard about it that money was to be obtained, they, too came forward. In the end, all came forward worldwide to get some of that money. No one convinces me otherwise about that and say it was not so. We do know money can be the root of all evil. They were not going to allow this opportunity to pass by without benefiting from it.
    Some priests were wrongfully accused and their cases were dismissed.

  21. The Real Facts
    June 14, 2015

    Yes! We, The Church worldwide has suffered greatly by this child abuse exposure. The Church has a format in place to ensure that this abuse will not recur. However, who knows what lurks in the heart of man? We cannot read minds. Today, if any has that tendency, they will think twice for they know that they will be prosecuted.
    Some have blamed the entire Church and this is unfair. They are not to be blamed.
    We must think beyond. I have considered that when this surfaced and was brought to the attention of the Hierarchy, they were shocked and did not know how to deal with it. To be fair, I am certain they did not want this to go public to the Media. We do know that once the Media gets hold of this news, all hell will break loose and we know the rest. The Media is not a lover of the Catholic Church. The Media has done much to expose the Catholic Church and to debase it. It happens in Canada, the US, and Europe of all as if they are perfect and sinless.

      Therefore, people, be careful what you state against the Catholic Church. Weigh out the situation properly and think.
      In private life we know some people have abused their power in many ways. Some made a marriage vow for better or for worse . . . and did not have the intention of honoring it.
      Some, while they were married, dishonored their marriage vows and some, single or married abused their children and other people’s children.
      There is also a tendency to lambaste the Catholic Church without looking at other immoralities in the world. One of it is recognition of relationships between two men and two women and this so-called same sex marriage.
      If Our Almighty Father did as at Sodom and Gomorrah, such people and the rest of the world would not be left standing.
      Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “Let he who is without sin caste the first stone.” Therefore, be fair and beware of stones that you throw. The Lord is taking note of those who do for their judgment.

While our forefathers were in those dungeons before the were transported to the Americas, their captors were having church above their heads. Many are quick to forget and want to forget the past because of what religion has dictated to them but the so-called jews do not forget their history.
