American Flag over the Feild

The American flag stands at half mast. Not for America. But for the death of the nation of Ireland. This American flag flies over the Field in Alabama where Our Lady of Medjugorje has appeared many times and during the apparitions when the United States of America was consecrated in Our Lady’s presence in Her apparitions on July 3-4 in 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013. Ireland is the first nation in the world that has voted by popular vote for perverted, abominable unions, masking them as marriage—what cannot be, what is impossible to be. They have voted to defy natural law which is nature’s law which is Divine Law--a Christian nation who has defied its God, who now brings, not a judgement from God, but a self-inflicted judgement upon themselves by rejecting God. God withdraws where His Law and ways are rejected turning man over to himself. History has shown of those who think they can continue without God, cannot and will not. It is a lesson from history and a principle of Scriptures that cannot be avoided. “Coronating” Ireland to satan by this act opens the door to a Pandora’s box of all sorts of maladies. Israel’s history shows this as when the Assyrians were placed over them, crushing them, grinding them down for a long period of great suffering until they continually cried out for God in repentance. We have various satanic forces, such as ISIS, who are in the position to take power as the Assyrians did, who can be given authority over those nations who shamelessly adopt perversion and sin as something noble. Ireland, you will find out how wrong you are for this and shamefully, for all of us, the biggest sign of this is the weakness of the Bishops and the clergy who abandoned the flock, who have spoken in weakness and with weak actions, leaning towards compassion for the sin and semi-toleration instead of indignation, all the while thinking they love the sinner. Many of these poor wretched souls will be confined to perdition because of shepherds not aggressively confronting and rooting out this sin. Woe, Woe, Woe is the future and the shepherds as well. As we fly our nation’s flag at half mast in Our Lady’s Field, we pray for those sheep of Ireland who are mourning the death of their nation. You, as Our Lady’s apostles, are Ireland’s only hope for resurrection from its vote of death.

The Death of a Nation, May 22, 2015

The Death of a Nation...

WHY?

Why true Christian Citizens of Ireland are not Obligated to Obey the New Marriage Law, but Rather are Obligated to Defy It


First, an important history lesson.


In 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th President of the United States of America. During his presidency, Abraham Lincoln told his fellow countrymen to come back to the Declaration of Independence that gave birth to the United States of America, 11 years before the U.S. Constitution was written! Lincoln did not say, come back to the United States Constitution. If it was necessary to come back to the Declaration 100 years after the Constitution was ratified in Lincoln’s time, then why would it be different for us in our present 2015 crisis? It is by the craft of satan, with his master intellect, that the courts, over the last 60 years, divorced the Constitution from the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration is the conscience for the Constitution. The Constitution will not hold the course as a stand alone document as the Declaration of Independence did for 11 years before the U.S. Constitution existed. By standing alone as a document, divorced from the Declaration, judges become the conscience of the Constitution, with the Declaration no longer fulfilling that role. This is illegal. The Founding Fathers foresaw the possibility of this happening and were gravely concerned because even with all the checks and balances they instituted, if judges began overstepping their bounds, it would mean death to the republic. It is in this way that satan is attempting to steal our nation from the Divine Creator who was given sovereignty over the United States of America from its inception. The more Christians will educate themselves and teach their children, their families and their friends these truths, the sooner our nation will be healed.


The prince of darkness, satan, hates a document which first declared independence from an earthly kingdom, England, and then secondly, declared dependence upon God. In this way, the Declaration of Independence was a dual declaration. A primary reason of importance for minusing out the Declaration when interpreting the Constitution is to get away from the words “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” In this phrase, the Fathers of our nation found the legal basis for separation from England. But what do these words mean? To find their true meaning, we must look past the degradation of present word definitions to the original definitions as understood by the United States Founding Fathers. These are the only valid meanings, which can be applied to today.


Again, do not only read but learn the following three pages. It is the result of much prayer to explain in a brief, simple way what many do not fully grasp or realize.


The Fathers of the United States of America were greatly influenced by the writings of Englishman, Sir William Blackstone. From Blackstone, the Fathers of our nation fashioned the ideas of liberty and placed them in the language we are familiar with in the Declaration of Independence. However, truth always trails back to the source of truth, which is public revelation, known as the Holy Scripture. Therefore, Blackstone was hardly the originator of such ideas, as these concepts were being defined within the Church even before the Magna Carta came into being in the early part of the 13th century. By the 16th century, two centuries before the Declaration of Independence was written, a Jesuit priest by the name of Fr. Francisco Suarez was “the chief champion of the rights of the people” who fought against the doctrine that kings were kings by “divine rights.” Prominent Church leaders also echoed these doctrines in the same century.


It is from Blackstone’s writings that the words and understanding of the laws of nature and of nature’s God, written in our Declaration, were taken. Laws of Nature (or Nature’s Laws) are laws God made which apply to Creation. Laws of gravity, for example, cannot be changed. God created matter and marked it with certain principles that it can never deviate from. Vegetation and animal life are governed by the same laws and they must follow these laws involuntarily to exist. And so, the first part of that phrase as written in the Declaration, “the laws of nature,” are laws that are characterized by a rule of action dictated by some Superior Being. Blackstone called them involuntary laws of governance. The second part of the phrase as written in the Declaration, “laws of nature’s God,” pertain to God’s Holy Word, the Sacred Scriptures. Blackstone said:

 

 

“The doctrine thus delivered (by God) we call the revealed or Divine law, and they are to be found only in the Holy Scripture. These precepts, when revealed…(when compared to nature are) a part of the original Law of Nature.”

 


From the Laws of Nature and the Laws of Nature’s God, we arrive at w
hat is the revealed Natural Law. Natural law is law that man declares in submission to “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.” Laws of creation (Nature’s Law) and God’s revealed law, the Scriptures (of Nature’s God) are superior to natural law because they are declared by God, Himself, while man’s law (natural law) is only the human reasoning of what we imagine the Divine Law to be. Nature’s Law, together with God’s Law of Revelation, Holy Scripture, are the foundations by which Blackstone said, “depends all human law,” which is Natural Law. This might sound confusing but it is important to fully grasp the previous statement before reading further so reread if necessary beginning at “The Fathers of the United States of America were greatly influenced ...” Reread until you understand. This will enable you to understand what follows.
 

It is recommended to everyone to fly your nation’s flag at half mast at your homes, businesses, etc. to May 26, especially those in Ireland. A Friend of Medjugorje spoke about this tragedy on the May 25, 2015 Monthly Message Radio WAVE program. Be sure to listen here and spread to others. To listen to the May 25, 2015 show titled, R.I.P. Ireland, visit here.

Nature’s Law + God’s Revealed Law = Natural Law. Natural law applies equally (equal station) to everyone upon the face of the earth. The Declaration of Independence states: “(the) equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…” Therefore, there can be no law made upon the earth by anyone or any nation that any man anywhere is bound to obey when the law is against natural law.1 To obey laws against natural law puts us in transgression against Divine Law and, therefore, the law is invalid and is to be defied as if it doesn’t exist because there is no basis for it to be. All law is to be based on God’s law or it is invalid.2 Therefore, the “authority” for human law is derived from nature’s laws and nature’s God, from which, Blackstone said, “depends all human law.” By this authority, Pope Benedict communicated to citizens of Spain who work in adoption agencies, that they are to defy Spain’s new laws of illicit marriages and adoptions and refuse to fill out any paperwork or grant adoption of children to illicit and unnatural perverted unions, masked as marriage. Spain’s new laws are against nature and nature’s God, and therefore, against natural law and have no authority. Therefore, Spain’s citizens are obliged to defy them. They would not be disobeying, since the law disobeys natural law. No human law against natural law is valid. The Catechism of the Catholic Church confirms this:


“The natural law is written and engraved in the soul of each and every man, because it is human reason ordaining him to do good and forbidding him to sin...But this command of human reason would not have the force of law if it were not the voice and interpreter of a higher reason to which our spirit and our freedom must be submitted.”

“The natural law is immutable and permanent throughout the variations of history; it subsists under the flux of ideas and customs and supports their progress...Even when it is rejected in its very principles, it cannot be destroyed or removed from the heart of man. It always rises again in the life of individuals and societies.”

Ireland citizens must defy the new perverted marriage law.

Footnotes:
1. Ireland’s new law is invalid and everyone is obligated to defy it.
2. God, of course, grants liberty to man to make civil law that is left up to man’s reason, such as how much to import, limits of speed when driving, etc. These are defined rules of conduct that we are obligated to obey. But even these laws are derived from the authority of the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.

I am very sorrowful for this, if my parents were alive they probably would not survive the horror of what is going on in Ireland, May father God be merciful to us all!

The Irish nation have voted and brought shame on us all. The country of my birth is not the country I recognise today, and shortly she will be voting to allow abortion. You will answer for your folly. A once proud country will be brought to its knees. Pray Ireland, pray, before the wrath of God strikes you. Amen. Our Lady has come to prepare us but we are not listening. Come back to Her Son who died for us.

I do believe or should say that when this news came out, that I said to myself here comes Isis.We do have a solution Our Lady of Fatimas' Peace Plan.Are we not the body of the church? Do we not have the power and authority in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit which we celebrate today Pentecost to rise up peacefully according to her desires that he expressed at Fatima, and return to working Her peace plan. For some reason Rhwanda comes to mind, because She said pray from the heart, if not this is what will take place, and it did. We need not only to revive this, we the people in the pews, it needs to be taken seriously and to heart.. I am sure that you are aware of the Nigerian bishop that had an interaction with The Good Lord. Which he was presented with a sword that turned into a Rosary. All has been given To Mary, She is our mother. Let's ask Mary Holy Mother come with your Spouse open our hearts and minds to the request at Fatima that we may be worthy soldiers in your army, and that the church not only be renewed, but your sons, priests, may wake up and not be politically correct but be Christ in this mission of peace.

The expected wait time for the [abominable] people to be able to get [their license] in Ireland is said to be August. Once this happens, there will be a huge ceremony where thousands of these people will get [their license] the same day. I hope and pray it is not August 15th, the day approx. 35 of us have done the 33 day Consecration to the BVM the past three years and hope to do it again this year. This is just the continuation of the downward spiral that Ireland has been going through, for the past several years. It stuns me to think that Church going people voted "yes" because they want to appear popular - they want to fit in with the rest of the world, on the downward spiral. What ever happened to standing up for your Faith. God will bring all mankind back to HIS laws, sooner or later, even if it means resorting to harsh measures to get peoples attention. These are sad times when people are so lost and unhappy that they believe [abomination] will bring them happiness... May God forgive them all for their confusion. Thank God for the guidance and protection of the BVM!

Just finished reading the entire message. It is perfect! It is scarey that man thinks he can overwrite God's law (s). I think that this is a sign that we have turned the corner towards the end of the world.

Thank you for flying your flag at half-mast. It is an abomination. We are devastated. It was all planned and in place by 2013

Thank you. I am saddened at this travesty. No doubt we are due chastisement. The world is in darkness, darkness of sin. The sin of abortion creates a bigger chasm with every child unborn makes the abyss wider and deeper. [Abomination] creates business [...] enterprise, which by the way poured millions of foreign money into this Yes referendum. Called to serve, as Jesus washed the Apostles feet, an abortion negates the motherly nurturing and so serving the needs of a baby born. Most precious Blood of Jesus save us.

Dear Friend of Medjugorje, I am scotsman living in pagan, anti-catholic Ireland. I woke up on Saturday morning to find that Ireland had officially become an anti-catholic country and was celebrating endorsing sodomy. I have been very uncomfortable since then and I'm writing to thank you for your RIP Ireland podcast. I have listened to it 3 times already and I'll be listening to it more as I drive to my various jobs in Ireland. This podcast has been the best podcast I have listened to in my life. It was uplifting to hear the result of this dreadful event being spoken about with the appropriate language and no apologies to the enemies of our church. As upset and angry as I feel you had me laughing a few times with some of your comments you made regarding our weak bishop's statements. I really do want to get out this country as I believe it will continue to endorse even more laws that are the opposite of Gods laws there is nothing to stop the liberals now anyway as the Church leaders in Ireland have shown they have no backbone. If it wasn't for Our Lady of Medjugorje's messages I could have seen me walking away from the church after the lack of fight from our leaders. I wish our Bishops had spoken with your words as we wouldn't be having this conversation. I really do thank you for your spirit led words and I have passed the link from your podcast to fellow faithful Catholics. God bless you all from this land covered in dark dark clouds.

Please pray for all those who struggle with the unmentionable problem. I lived that way for a few years, went to Medjugorje in 1991, now I go to Mass and confession often. I still need prayers. God Bless you all at Caritas and God Bless all who walk with Our Lady. Thank you.

I am grateful to Our Lady for reminding us two days ago in her message to "believe in the power of prayer." Ireland along with the United States is walking right into the fires of hell. I vow today to really step up my prayer life. The night is the darkest right before daylight and I know that only through prayer and fasting will the Holy Spirit be able to give me the much needed graces required to help me remain hopeful. God bless all of you at Caritas

Thank you Friend of Medjugorje for thinking of us Christians in Ireland, as we suffer now with Jesus as He entered into His passion knowing that He would be abandoned by us. Sadly many Sheperds lost their way and were silent for the greater part of the campaign and it is years since the majority of youth has left the Church our greatest treasure. Some due to abuse by the sheperds who were entrusted to care for the sheep. We mourn the loss of Christian Ireland. Without God we are dust. We mourn for our country wandering and sinking daily deeper into the darkness and lies of satan. Ashamed to be Irish I ask the Lord Jesus for the ocean of His Mercy to pour out upon us. Gather us Lord, those of us who wish to remain faithful to You the Good Sheperds and their sheep. You Lord have the words of eternal life. To whom Lord can we go only to the fount of your Mercy praying for forgiveness? We Christians were chosen for this time and in this country. Lord lead us through this calvary.

It was with great sadness I heard that Ireland voted to support [abomination], may God forgive them for turning against him, and His Love, I will pray for Ireland.

PRAISE GOD! Decades ago, as a Catholic school girl and later in college, I have unforgettable memories of retreats preached by Irish Redeemptorist Fathers. Apart from my home and school, I got my strong Catholic faith from those good and holy priests. They never wavered from God's way for human families. Most of those priests have gone to their eternal reward. IRELAND'S GRAVEYARDS MUST BE FULL OF GODLY ANCESTORS ROLLING IN THEIR GRAVES OVER THE GREATEST DEPRAVITY AND LUNACY IN THIS MILLENNIUM COMMITTED BY THEIR COUNTRY. May Mother Mary get her army in battle array and defeat the forces of evil that have taken over a country that was truly Catholic for centuries - from the days of St. Patrick. May the Holy Trinity symbolised by the green shamrock reclaim their kingdom.

All these facts have special meaning to the Christian believer: The great battle between good and evil is unfolding and hard times are ahead of us. But if we remain faithfully we don%u2019t have to fear because the final victory will be the victory of Christ and His Holy Mother over satan.

Now The Sodomite Country, Ireland
Thank you Friend of Medjugorje for your words on this poor country of Ireland, I really wish I didn’t live here, the ungodliness is everywhere one goes, signs for the yes vote still up with their slogans ‘love and equality; discrimination destroys’ makes me sick to the soul. I feel like I’m one of the few souls that see right through this darkness/ spiritual blindness. The only comfort I get is trying to follow Our Lady’s messages. I am so disappointed with the shepherds of this country - they cower down to the satanic jeering and demands of those who vote for abomination, or they unknowingly [or knowingly] promote it. Apparently, according to some in this country, to have voted no meant you are homophobic. It’s out of total sadness I am writing this.

Please inform your listeners of the severity of voting for such an abomination - it is going to affect so many lives, through prayer I can foresee many, many bad things happening because of this grave sin against God. Regardless, I am going to stand for the conscience that God gave me and promote the goodness that is God and His Blessed Mother. Please pray for the conversion, and reconversion, of lost blind souls. You and the community of Caritas are in my prayers, please never give up living Our Lady's messages. God bless, Anita.

It indeed was a sad day for the 26 counties of Ireland that voted for [abomination] so called marriage I was speaking to a Priest , who was angry with leaders of the country the media etc, and he said he might burn his passport. He also said that the north of Ireland would have voted against it and stated 'Thank God for the D.U.P. '. The Catholic Faith is Much Stronger in the North, though sadly church attendance is greatly reduced compared to older days. Indeed our Faithful Parish Priest spoke out about parents who bring their children to First Holy Communion and after that do not show any interest in attending Holy Mass. Pope Paul said once he asked God every night to Bless Ireland, but he now must be turning in his grave.
