Trade Deal with China

______________________________________________________________

President Donald Trump signaled he would be willing to wait for another year before striking a trade agreement with China, casting doubt on the likelihood of a phase-one accord within weeks between Washington and Beijing.

Stocks tumbled in Europe and the U.S. as Trump’s comments indicated no urgency to reach a deal by Dec. 15, which U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Monday called a “logical deadline.” The Trump administration has threatened to impose tariffs on more Chinese imports starting that day. Those levies would hit American consumer products such as smartphones, toys and children’s clothing.

A flurry of U.S. trade moves in the past 24 hours has eroded investor optimism that Trump would ease up on tariffs that have slowed the global economy. Rather than ratcheting down trade tensions, Trump is indicating confidence that his import taxes are good for America.

A U.S. guided-missile destr0yer sailed near disputed islands in the South China Sea in what China called a “provocation” as U.S. officials joined talks in Beijing during a truce in a bitter trade war.

The statement came as trade talks between China and the United States were underway in Beijing, the first round of face-to-face discussions since both sides agreed to a 90-day truce in a trade war that has roiled international markets.

. . .

I do not foresee a trade deal amid warfare.

“Santo” Padre Cruz

 

 

 

Um padre de Deus, dos pobres e dos marginais

 

 

A Comissão Histórica do processo de canonização do Padre Cruz apresentou a relação dos seus trabalhos ao Tribunal Eclesiástico da Causa, afirmando que o processo está agora “mais perto de ser enviado para o Vaticano”.

Segundo um comunicado da Companhia de Jesus (Jesuítas), “o momento solene que assinalou o juramento dos peritos – que afirmaram nada ter encontrado que impeça a canonização do Padre Cruz –, decorreu na terça-feira da semana passada [1 de outubro], dia em que se assinalaram 71 anos da morte do Servo de Deus”. Com a conclusão desta etapa da missão da comissão de peritos – “que traçou o contexto histórico da vida do Padre Cruz, fez um juízo sobre a sua personalidade e espiritualidade e atestou da autenticidade dos documentos encontrados” – o processo de canonização do Servo de Deus padre Francisco Rodrigues da Cruz, iniciado em 1950, “entra agora numa nova fase, estando mais perto de ser enviado para o Vaticano”, informa a nota.

Para o vice-postulador da causa de canonização, padre Dário Pedroso, “este momento foi de grande alegria e de muita ação de graças a Deus”. “De um grande obrigado aos membros da Comissão Histórica e àqueles que com ela trabalharam nos arquivos da Causa. Devo também uma palavra de agradecimento ao senhor Patriarca pelo entusiasmo que sempre me deu para levar este serviço por diante. Aguardamos em esperança o que ainda falta”, referiu o sacerdote jesuíta.

Esta foi a terceira Comissão Histórica nomeada na Causa do Padre Cruz, tendo concluído o processo em dez meses, colhendo muito do trabalho de investigação que já tinha sido desenvolvido pelas anteriores comissões.

MESSAGE FROM SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
TO LUZ DE MARIA
NOVEMBER 10, 2019

People of Our King and Lord Jesus Christ:

AS PRINCE OF THE HEAVENLY LEGIONS I AM SENT FROM THE TRINITARIAN THRONE TO WARN YOU.

The Devil is sending all his minions to Earth, so that they tempt weak souls and those strong in the FAITH, all alike.

EACH ONE OF YOU FIGHTS THE BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL, THUS TRANSLATING THE TRUTH OF WHAT YOU PROFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH AND WHAT REALLY EXISTS IN YOUR HEART.

Human appetites for gaining honors on Earth and each person’s inflated “ego” will be unveiled before their brothers and sisters; the intransigence and the so-called perfection of some men will fall: ONLY OUR KING AND LORD IS PERFECT.

Human creatures continually grow or fall according to their acts, according to their works; nothing is of worth before our King and Lord Jesus Christ if it is not worked out and enacted by the Love that proceeds from the Bosom of the Most Holy Trinity.

The demons are enflaming human beings, not only in the streets, in the villages, but within each person; there are too many men who look at the outside, feeling clean and right within, while being a continual fetid sepulcher of pride within.

The souls that walk in search of holiness are those who love despite . . . who forgive despite . . . do not hold grudges despite . . . since they live out the Gospel that calls to DIVINE LOVE ACTING AND OPERATING IN HUMAN CREATURES.

Countries are in convulsion, Demons infest human beings who are lukewarm or have no faith, so that they attack what reminds them of THE POWER OF GOD. This is what enrages evil: that its power will never be above the Power of God.

Evil acts in man’s psyche, leading him to states of pride where he is an expert, and it goes inside man until it reaches the “ego” and infests him with diabolical ambitions, diabolical pretensions, diabolical judgments, diabolical ideas and thoughts, so that he fights against his fellow men and against God himself.

The Devil tempts men, and within free will man either falls into temptation or fights against that temptation. In moving away from God, the human creature is exposed to being seized and bent by the enemy of the soul, showing the power of evil through man.

People of God: you must know that the Devil has focused his evil power on man, enraging you in order that men would rise up against men. That is his delight.

Understand that the infestation of evil is not possession, but sadly the possessed increase as evil increases.

You, people of God, be zealous in your relationship with God; pray, be fulfillers of the commandments, the sacraments, practice works of mercy, maintain your sacramental life, receiving our King and Lord Jesus Christ properly prepared: in this you need to be strict. Do not draw near to receive our King and Lord Jesus Christ if you are not at PEACE with your brothers and sisters, if you have not confessed your sins; pray the Holy Rosary and do other acts of piety.

THE CHILDREN OF GOD NEED TO FAST FROM FOOD IF THEIR HEALTH ALLOWS IT; OTHERWISE, OFFER UP ANOTHER FAST. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIGHT EVIL WHILE BEING LUKEWARM; THIS IS AN INSTANT FOR YOU TO GROW IN THE SPIRIT; YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ADVANCE IN FAITH IF YOU ARE NOT SPIRITUAL, IF YOU DO NOT MAKE REPARATION, IF YOU DO NOT GRIEVE OVER EVIL COMMITTED, IF YOU ARE NOT CHRISTIANS WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS.

I therefore urge you to obey St. Paul’s exhortation to the Ephesians in chapter 6, verses 11 to 16: “Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness, with Zeal for the gospel of peace as shoes for your feet, always taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.“

People of God, the spiritual struggle is fierce, and the man who is separated from our King and Lord Jesus Christ is an easy prey: you therefore need to put on the armor of your King and Lord Jesus Christ and live as those who fulfill the Divine Will.

You must have Holy Fear of God. Therefore fear falling into sin, fear accepting ideologies that lead you away from the center of the Christian’s spiritual life, fear opening the door to the Devil, fearing turning away from the Most Holy Trinity, fear not maintaining a Christ-centered life.

LOVE OUR AND YOUR QUEEN AND THE MOTHER OF ALL THAT IS CREATED; STRETCH OUT YOUR HANDS TO YOUR MOTHER; AT HER NAME HELL IS AFRAID, THE DEMONS FLEE IN TERROR AS LONG AS YOU ARE LIVING IN GOD.

Invoke me! I will come ipso facto, My Legions protect you. The People of God are not helpless. Do not fear, do not fear, do not fear the Devil, stay far from everything that leads you to offend Our and your King and Lord Jesus Christ; do not turn away from sound doctrine; do not distort the Scriptures – there is no God apart from God (cf. Is 45:5; Lev 18:21 and 20:5; Acts 7:43), do not accept errors, as at the end of the times errors will cause souls to fall: the DIVINE WORD IS ONE.

People of God, man’s madness emanates darkness, and this leads creation to disavow the man who wishes to worship creation (cf. Rom 1:25). Man needs to grow in the spirit, not to regress. Faced with this human doing, suffering continues to increase for the human being due to an accelerated passage of time that brings it closer to greater calamities, which will cause the earth to shake with greater force; the inclement Sun and the unpredictable rain ruin crops and Famine draws closer.

Pray, children of God, pray for Canada. The earth shakes forcefully, the rains are unexpected, causing great losses.

Pray, children of God. The growth of satanic groups has drawn turmoil to Latin America. Pray and be determined against evil, remain united as ordained by Our King and Lord Jesus Christ; put into action what you preach so that you might ward off evil.

Pray, children of God, Chile continues to suffer. The earth shakes forcefully.

Pray children of God, pray. In Italy the earth shakes.

Pray children of God, pray for Spain. This nation suffers through its own inhabitants.

Calamities reach Germany and this nation weeps.

People of God, humanity is pushing the Most Holy Trinity aside; you are deceived by evil, accepting a gospel that is not the true one (cf. Gal 1:6-9). The true faith is being extinguished, evil is beginning its way with men.

The expected Angel of Peace will come and by Divine disposition you will be assisted. (1)

Pray the Holy Rosary, cover yourselves with the Precious Blood of Our and your King and Lord Jesus Christ, staying in peace, being Love for your brothers, staying united, so that you stand without perishing in the spirit.

BE UNITY AS THE MOST HOLY TRINITY COMMANDS FROM YOU; BE CHARITY, BE LOVE, BE STRONG AND HUMBLE, PROGRESS IN FAITH.

Do not fear, you are not alone, Our and your Mother is with Her children.

WHO IS LIKE GOD?

NO ONE IS LIKE GOD!

Saint Michael the Archangel

HAIL MARY MOST PURE, CONCEIVED WITHOUT SIN
HAIL MARY MOST PURE, CONCEIVED WITHOUT SIN
HAIL MARY MOST PURE, CONCEIVED WITHOUT SIN

COMMENTARY BY LUZ DE MARIA

 

Brothers and Sisters:

Our beloved Saint Michael the Archangel brings us the Word that warns us about the action of the Devil upon humanity.

Seeing this, let us be led by the Holy Spirit, since we know that the earth is stained by the blood of innocents, it is torn apart by the arrogance of man, without going into all kinds of mistakes that keep wounding the Sacred Hearts.

We see human perversity, attacks against Churches, and we know that this will increase; we therefore need to meditate on the Words of Saint Michael the Archangel and remain faithful to the Most Holy Trinity. We are witnesses to the misfortune of man and his reactions; let us be firm in Love for our Blessed Mother and let us not forget that faith will keep us firm and strong. Let us not fear anything except offending God; let us beseech our Mother to hold us by Her Hand.

Amen.

The State of the Catholic Church

 

______________________________________________________________

 

Our Lady of La Salette

Our Lady of La Salette

 

______________________________________________________________

 

As I warned the children of La Salette, woe to the princes of the Church who think only of piling riches upon riches to protect their authority and dominate with pride. The evil one has led many of my Son’s priests, including even many of the bishops and cardinals down a path that he has chosen to destroy my Son’s Church. The leadership of the Church appears now to be in disarray, because the followers of My Son recognize that the spirit of the Church of My Son has become cloudy now, and the messages that the faithful want to hear from the Church of My Son seem to be filled with confusion and misunderstanding.

The evil one has achieved his goals in these times to give the appearance that My Son’s Church is in disarray. Even the direction that My Son’s Church seems to be taking in terms of social issues and other issues that are of a non-religious nature, makes it appear as if the Church of My Son has lost its direction and that the purpose of My Son’s Church – the salvation of all of God’s children – is now directionless and without guidance.

Do not allow yourselves to be dismayed by the appearances that are taking place. The evil one only appears to be in charge to many of you, but I assure you that My Son, the Lord and Savior, the Redeemer of the world, is working most powerfully now to guide His Church through these perilous times.

Make no mistake that a great struggle is taking place in the spiritual world as the evil one makes his final challenge to destroy my Son’s Church. Michael the Archangel will eventually prevail over the prince of darkness and the Church will be renewed.

You have my assurances as your Holy Mother of the Church of My Son that it is only through My Son’s Church that true salvation will be achieved. Do not fear and do not allow yourselves to be confused by events that are happening within the Church, and by messages from my Son’s Church that appear to be confusing, cloudy, and ambiguous, because you must recognize that truly it is the work of the evil one in his last gasps to destroy My Son’s Church that the confusion is happening.

The plans of satan’s minions are disguised as being for the good of the people of the world, but do not allow yourselves to be deceived by these world leaders. They are operating, not only to destroy My Son’s Church and to create their version of a religion by forming a one world religion, they are also acting in other devious ways to subjugate all of you into a further form of slavery than they have already achieved over the people of the Earth.

Hear me now, my Children of the Light, I call upon you now in these final days to unite with your brothers and sisters under the leadership of My Son and your Savior, Jesus Christ, and under the mantle of your Blessed Mother to fight the good fight against the evil of the world.

 

I took pertinent paragraphs of  a Message of Our Lady of La Salette.

Snow, Crash and Revival

______________________________________________________________

 

 

______________________________________________________________

 

America will have record snowstorms nationwide, the stock market will crash, gold and silver will rise in price, and the Holy Spirit will lead persons to God when they face imminent chaos and confusion.

I have written basic financial articles for basic educational purpose, because the stock market will crash before this sad Christmas.  Some souls will turn to God when they reflect about the meaning of life amid political and financial upheaval.

Ninety Third Letter to the Filipinos

______________________________________________________________

 

 

______________________________________________________________

 

The purpose of this life is to seek God: ”What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?” (Ecclesiastes 1:3). Your Salvation should be the primary meaning of your life.  “What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life?” (Matthew 16:26).

Materialistic philosophies, like Marxism, are adverse to the meaning of life and hinder our spiritual life.  Secularism is evil because it seeks to interpret life on principles taken solely from the material world, without recourse to religion.

Relativism has no place for Wisdom, the ability to discern what is true, good, right, or lasting, and we need wisdom to walk with God. Relativism is the most deceitful contemporary philosophy.
