The East Thunders: Eastern Orthodox Bishops and Melkite Catholics Condemn Attack on Syria. And the Great "Pontiff of Dialogue" ....... not even a Monologue against the attack so far.
A Statement Issued by the Patriarchates of Antioch and all the East for the Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, and Greek-Melkite Catholic Patriarch.
A Statement Issued by the Patriarchates of Antioch and all the East for the Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, and Greek-Melkite Catholic
Damascus, 14 April 2018
God is with us; Understand all ye nations and submit yourselves!
We, the Patriarchs: John X, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, and Joseph Absi, Melkite-Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem, condemn and denounce the brutal aggression that took place this morning against our precious country Syria by the USA, France and the UK, under the allegations that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. We raise our voices to affirm the following:
This brutal aggression is a clear violation of the international laws and the UN Charter, because it is an unjustified assault on a sovereign country, member of the UN.
It causes us great pain that this assault comes from powerful countries to which Syria did not cause any harm in any way.
The allegations of the USA and other countries that the Syrian army is using chemical weapons and that Syria is a country that owns and uses this kind of weapon, is a claim that is unjustified and unsupported by sufficient and clear evidence.
The timing of this unjustified aggression against Syria, when the independent International Commission for Inquiry was about to start its work in Syria, undermines of the work of this commission.
This brutal aggression destroys the chances for a peaceful political solution and leads to escalation and more complications.
This unjust aggression encourages the terrorist organizations and gives them momentum to continue in their terrorism.
We call upon the Security Council of the United Nations to play its natural role in bringing peace rather than contribute to escalation of wars.
We call upon all churches in the countries that participated in the aggression, to fulfill their Christian duties, according to the teachings of the Gospel, and condemn this aggression and to call their governments to commit to the protection of international peace.
We salute the courage, heroism and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army which courageously protects Syria and provide security for its people. We pray for the souls of the martyrs and the recovery of the wounded. We are confident that the army will not bow before the external or internal terrorist aggressions; they will continue to fight courageously against terrorism until every inch of the Syrian land is cleansed from terrorism. We, likewise, commend the brave stand of countries which are friendly to the Syria and its people.
The “Official” Image: A Devious Gift That Keeps Giving Sister Lucy Truth exclusively broke the reality that one of the most widely circulated, “officially” approved photographs of “Sister Lucy” and Paul VI in 1967 is, in fact, a fraud. This “Official” image is below: INSERT: 1 - Official Image Lucia and Paul VI We proved that this “Official” image could be traced all the way back to a June 13, 1967 publication of Voz De Fatima, the official mouthpiece of the Shrine of Fatima, thus refuting any argument that the image emanated from some “unofficial” source years later. However, it is important to now focus in on precisely the level of deception at work with this Official image. Indeed, as we will prove below, this is not the case where a picture of “Lucia” was innocently cut out and placed next to Paul VI in collage fashion. No, it wasn’t that simple. The level of intent is far more calculating. As conclusively demonstrated below, the source image of the “Lucia” depicted in the “Official” …
ANNOUNCEMENT MADE BY CARDINAL ANGELO SODANO SECRETARY OF STATE At the end of the Mass presided over by the Holy Father at Fatima, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Secretary of State, made this announcement in Portuguese, which is given here in English translation: Remember, this was all done in front an applauding and attentive "Sister Lucy" who was obviously made aware of what was going to be announced that day. She did not show the slightest objection to release or to the hinted at content of the message. Brothers and Sisters in the Lord! At the conclusion of this solemn celebration, I feel bound to offer our beloved Holy Father Pope John Paul II, on behalf of all present, heartfelt good wishes for his approaching 80th Birthday and to thank him for his vital pastoral ministry for the good of all God's Holy Church; we present the heartfelt wishes of the whole Church. So at the beginning of the announcement, 40 years late in coming, th…
Dr. Chojnowski: This is Cardinal Ratzinger's "Theological Commentary" which was attached to the "released Third Secret." His commentary is in black and mine is in red. More to come..... Fatima, 13 May 2000 THEOLOGICAL COMMENTARY A careful reading of the text of the so-called third “secret” of Fatima, published here in its entirety long after the fact and by decision of the Holy Father, will probably prove disappointing or surprising after all the speculation it has stirred. It will be "disappointing" because it does not resemble IN ANY WAY the revelation that the world was expecting for some 40 years. Notice that the pronounced understanding of the world and Church Militant with regard to the Third Secret is contemptuously called "speculation." Since this is the Third Secret "in its entirety" and since it is done "by decision of the Holy Father" we know that this entire secret as "revealed" will be NOTHING …
The Blessed Emperor and the Tragic Fall of A Catholic Dynasty: Why Nobody Should Be Celebrating the End of World War I. By: Dr. Peter E. Chojnowski November 11, 2018 On the 100th anniversary of the "armistice" that ended World War I and set the stage for World War II, we are forced to recognize the tragedy that has lasted 100 years. It is the post-Christian Age. That the post-Christian Age has seen Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, Harry Truman --- of Hiroshima/Nagasaki fame and the social and political degeneration of the West and the decomposition of a Western Christian fashioned world order, is only part of the tragedy which looks us in the face when we think about this 100 year anniversary of a fraudulent and tragic end to one of the most catastrophic wars in human history. When the Armistice was signed on November 11th, 1918, the Germans, believing the fraud presented by Woodrow Wilson --- surely one of the stupidest presidents in United States history --- as the "Thirtee…
If this is the real Sister Lucy, then you have to also say that the Third Secret revealed in the year 2000 WAS the entirety of the Third Secret. If the woman captured on the video above, from May 13, 2000, was truly Sister Lucy then we can say that she completely endorsed both the revelation of this "Secret" and the contents of this "Secret." If she is an imposter, then the "Third Secret" of 2000 has ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIBILITY WHAT SO EVER.
Sister Lucy Truth has commissioned one of the best handwriting analysts in the world to examine all the purported writings of "Sister Lucy" in order to determine whether the handwriting of the older diary entries and letters match the journal entries and letters of the latter "Sister Lucy." If it is not the same person, that will come through on her writing "finger-print." If will be a further means of verifying the e…
