A Prayer of Exorcism and for Deliverance

O Lord, hear my prayer
And let my cry come unto Thee

God of heaven, God of earth,
God of Angels, God of Archangels,
God of Patriarchs, God of Prophets,
God of Apostles, God of Martyrs,
God of Confessors, God of Virgins,
God who has power
to give life after death and rest after work:
because there is no other God than Thee
and there can be no other,
for Thou art the Creator of all things,
visible and invisible,
of Whose reign there shall be no end,
we humbly prostrate ourselves before Thy glorious Majesty
and we beseech Thee to deliver us by Thy power
from all the tyranny of the infernal spirits,
from their snares, their lies and their furious wickedness.
Deign, O Lord,
to grant us Thy powerful protection
and to keep us safe and sound.
We beseech Thee
through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
Amen.

From the snares of the devil,
Deliver us, O Lord.
We beseech Thee to hear us.

Russians to Build Tallest Jesus Statue in World on Pacific Coast

Dr. Eowyn:

While the Untied [sic] States of America is busy removing the Ten Commandments from public squares, the latest being Oklahoma City, and erecting a 9 ft. tall statue of Satan in Detroit , Russia will build the world’s tallest Jesus status on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in the Russian Far East.

And while homosexuals and transgenders prance around in public parades here in America, members of the elite Russian Airborne forces proudly held up a picture of the prophet Elijah in a parade on August 2. (H/t FOTM reader Leo H. for the pic.)

My how times have changed. Remember the unveiling of the statues of Baphomet in the USA?  The first statue was in Oklahoma, and the latest is in Detroit.  America’s leftists fight to destroy any mention of God, Jesus, or the cross, and the Russians are building the tallest statue of Jesus in the entire world!  Where are America’s pastors and churches?

From THE EVENT CHRONICLE comes this article (Your News Wire) A Satanic statue is about to be unveiled in America’s heartland. A church in Detroit is about to do something a lot of churches and religious organizations do: have a statue of one of their gods placed in view for the public. Statues of Buddha, saints, gods, and deities are found across the globe, and accepted without much question. However, there is…

Pope Francis praises homosexual children’s book

In 2006, when he was Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal William J. Levada authored “The Family in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in which he states that The Catechism of the Catholic Church affirms that “The vocation of marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator” (1603) and that “In creating man and woman, God instituted the human family and endowed it with its fundamental constitution” (2203). Levada writes:

Since marriage and family have their basis in the created order, confirmed by the explicit Revelation of God, the Church necessarily opposes the adoption of human laws that would abandon or overturn this order, such as is the case with laws that would recognize same-sex or polygamous “marriage.” Human laws and judicial decisions that fail to respect this fundamental and perennial teaching are contrary to God’s law, and are rightly considered unjust.

And yet Pope Francis is praising a children’s book celebrating homosexual parenting and same-sex families.

Rosie Scammel reports for The Guardian, Aug. 28, 2015, that the Italian children’s book is titled Piccolo Uovo (Little Egg), with a cover adorned by cute hippos, kangaroos and penguins. While following the adventures of an egg may seem harmless enough, its discovery of different family types – including same sex – has prompted a backlash by conservatives who accuse Italian author Francesca Pardi of promoting a pro-homosexuality gender theory.

Pardi is a lesbian in a same-sex relationship with her business partner, Maria Silvia Fiengo. The two women traveled to Spain to be legally married and adopted four children in the Netherlands.

In the book, the egg encounters a pair of gay penguins, lesbian rabbits successfully bringing up a family, as well as other family models, including a single parent hippo, a mixed race dog couple, and kangaroos that have adopted polar bear cubs.

Piccolo Uovo

The book was met with disapproval by Venice’s new mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, who in June banned Piccolo Uovo and about 50 other titles from schools. The decision led more than 250 Italian authors to demand their own books be removed from the city’s shelves, a move one writer described as a “protest against an appalling gesture of censorship and ignorance”.

Now Pardi has found an unlikely supporter in Pope Francis, who through his staff has written to the author praising her work. Peter B. Wells, a senior official at the Vatican secretariat of state wrote in a July 9 letter to Lo Stampatello, the publisher of Piccolo Uovo, commending the book for spreading “Christian values”:

“His holiness [Pope Francis] is grateful for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings which it evoked, hoping for an always more fruitful activity in the service of young generations and the spread of genuine human and Christian values.”

Msgr Peter Wells

Peter B. Wells

Msgr. Peter Brian Wells was born in Oklahoma, was ordained a Presbyterian minister in 1991, and is now the number 3 man in the Vatican’s Secretariat of State.

Wells’ letter was a response to a parcel of children’s books sent by Pardi to the pontiff in June, all published by Lo Stampatello. In addition to Piccolo Uovo, 7 or 8 books also deal with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues (LGBT). Pardi accompanied the books with a letter bemoaning the attacks she has come under in recent months:

“Many parishes across the country are in this period sullying our name and telling falsehoods about our work which deeply offends us. We have respect for Catholics … A lot of Catholics give back the same respect, why can’t we have the whole hierarchy of the church behind us?”

Pardi said she had not expected a reply and was surprised to receive the letter at her Milan home.

The Vatican said the closing blessing of the private letter was addressed to Pardi and not in support of teachings which went against church doctrine on ‘gender theory’.

The Vatican deems homosexual relationships “intrinsically disordered” and “contrary to natural law”, preaching that gay people must live a life of chastity in order to be good Catholics. While such a doctrine has effectively excluded people in same-sex relationships from the church, Pope Francis has adopted a more welcoming approach during his papacy. “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” he said in 2013. The same year, a gay man in France told his local newspaper he had received a reassuring phone call from the pope – a claim the Vatican denied.

Catholics worldwide have started campaigning against the pope’s openness, with more than half a million signing a petition calling on Francis to reaffirm church teachings on gay people and divorcees. Signatories of the Filial appeal aim to have an impact on the Vatican’s synod on the family in October, when church teachings will be discussed by the world’s leading churchmen. The petition has notably been signed by traditionalist Cardinal Raymond Burke, who was demoted by the pope last year.

As in the United States, attitudes on homosexual marriage in Italy are changing, with recent polls showing the majority of voters are in favor of “gay” marriage and adoption. Italy’s prime minister, Matteo Renzi, has pledged to legislate for same-sex unions this year. He has come under growing pressure to fulfil the promise following a decision by the European court of human rights, which ruled that Italy failed to protect same-sex couples.

The boy who was held by his Angel

As America grows ever darker and more corrupt, here’s a reminder that God is still with the faithful.

A true Angel story by a mom named Ida C, from Opus Sanctorum Angelorum:

I am very grateful to God for blessing me with my Guardian Angel. He has protected me many times throughout my life. I have a Guardian Angel story that involves my Angel and that of my three children.

It was a snowy day in February, the year was 1989, and after picking up the children from school we drove about three miles into town for banking and groceries. The bank teller at the drive through said “Drive carefully,” and as I finished my transaction, I assured her that I would.

As I said, it had snowed earlier in the day, but by early afternoon the sun had started to melt some of the snow. Unfortunately it was less than an hour when the temperature dropped and the melted snow began to freeze. After our groceries were purchased we started our drive back home. As I rounded a sharp turn which was shaded by large fir trees my left front tire suddenly slid on black ice.

The roadway, which had appeared wet to me, was a sheet of ice. My first reaction was certainly the wrong one as I slammed on the brakes and turned sharply to the left! The vehicle I was driving at the time was a 1975 Toyota LandCruiser. The LandCruiser rolled over and into a deep ditch with the front end facing the opposite direction in which we were traveling. We were sitting top side up, but at a very steep angle. My two older children were buckled up in the rear of the vehicle. My youngest son was in the front passenger seat. The top was torn off of the LandCruiser, the windshield and the right front passenger window and door were broken and mangled. My youngest son, without my knowing, had removed his seat belt before we left the store.

As our vehicle started to roll I could see the roadway coming up to my side window. I cried out “Oh God” as I gripped the steering wheel with all my strength. As we landed back on our wheels I could hear my two children who were seated in the back. My daughter was crying hysterically and my son was moaning. They both had received bumps on their heads from the roll-bar. Thankfully their injuries were not life threatening.

As I looked to my right I could not see my son in his seat! I looked up and saw his lifeless body hanging over the broken and mangled window/door frame. I took off my seat belt and tried to extract him from the broken frame. We were sitting at such a steep angle that I could not leverage him down. He wasn’t moving or speaking. Very soon a large, helpful gentleman was able to remove my son from the broken frame and place him in the passenger seat. My son had sustained lacerations to the side of his head and a cut tendon on the top of his left wrist.

As my son’s injuries were made known, and as he was not yet speaking, my daughter began saying “Is he going to die, is he going to die!!!” I said “NO, he is NOT GOING TO DIE!”

David and all of us survived that horrible accident because God was Gracious and heard my cry. Sometime later, months later, my son, David, said to me. Thank you mom for putting your arms around me and holding me in my seat! I was astonished. I had wondered why he was not thrown out and crushed under the vehicle as it rolled! I told him that I would have put my arms around him and held him if it had been possible, but it could only have been his Guardian Angel that he felt holding him in place.

The only injury I sustained was a slight cut to my finger when I put my hand in my pocket that was full of glass from the broken windshield.

I thank God everyday for the loving protection of our Guardian Angels.

A Prayer to My Guardian Angel

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom His Love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard,
to rule and guide. Amen.

And remember to tell your Guardian Angel you love him, for he loves you very very much.

Sunday Devotional: America, the reprobate

Mark 7:1, 6, 8

When the Pharisees…
gathered around Jesus….
He responded,
“…You disregard God’s commandment
but cling to human tradition.”

Moses and the Ten Commandments

Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-8

Moses said to the people:
“…In your observance
of the commandments of the Lord, your God,

which I enjoin upon you,
you shall not add to what I command you
nor subtract from it.

Observe them carefully,
for thus will you give evidence
of your wisdom and intelligence to the nations,
who will hear of all these statutes and say,
‘This great nation is truly a wise and intelligent people.’
For what great nation is there
that has gods so close to it as the Lord, our God, is to us
whenever we call upon him?
Or what great nation has statutes and decrees
that are as just as this whole law
which I am setting before you today?”

But America is doing the exact opposite, not only removing the Ten Commandments from public squares, the latest being Oklahoma City, but Detroit actually erected a 9 ft. tall statue of Satan.

For an examination of conscience by reviewing the Ten Commandments, go here.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you.

Ashley Madison was a giant con: 2 subscribers commit suicide; female subscribers are fakes

The wages of sin.

After hackers of Ashley Madison (AM) made public the personal information of the adultery website’s 37 million subscribers, including their names, email addresses, and sexual fantasies, two subscribers apparently committed suicide.

Some of those subscribers actually used their work email addresses, as shown by the many addresses that end in .gov, .mil, a company name (WellsFargo), a university name (UTexas), and even the United Nations. (See “Pentagon/FBI investigate Ashley Madison hack, in fear of blackmail of government subscribers to adultery site”)

The Daily Mail reports, Aug. 24, 2015, that Captain Michael Gorhum, who had served for 25 years with the San Antonio Police Department in Texas, took his own life just days after hackers published his email using the official San Antonio city e-address.

Captain Michael Gorhum

Gorhum’s email address was one of three San Antonio city official email addresses which were leaked as part of the Ashley Madison, the IBTimes reports.

At a press conference on Monday, Aug. 24, Canadian police confirmed a second suicide of a man also believed to have been using AM. Police are investigating if the deaths are as a direct result of the leak of AM users.

Thus far, “famous” AM subscribers who are outed include Josh Duggar of the pious Duggar family; two reality TV dudes (whose names I don’t recognize, nor will you); and Jeff Ashton, the state attorney of Florida’s Orange and Osceola counties who gained national attention as the prosecutor in the unsuccessful murder prosecution of Casey Anthony.

The latest on Josh “Porky Pig” Duggar: He’s entered rehab. A porn star/stripper, Danica Dillon, says she had sex with Josh on two separate occasions, when Josh’s wife was pregnant with their 4th child. Dillon says Josh did not make contact with her on AM. Instead, he had approached her in a strip club. (InTouch Weekly)

Ashton said he is resigning his post after being revealed as an Ashley Madison user, but insists he had committed no crime and never followed through with an affair on the cheating website. He choked up several times during a news conference while publicly apologizing to his wife, their three children and his four adult children from previous marriages.

The Ashley Madison leak has already resulted in lawsuits filed against the company. A family lawyer described it as ‘Christmas in September’ for the industry.

Canadian widower Eliot Shore, who joined the site after his wife of 30 years died of cancer, is leading a £368 million lawsuit against Ashley Madison and demanding £4.8 million in damages after his details were published on the internet.

Ashley Madison is offering a $500,000 bounty to anyone who names the hackers and helps police secure a conviction against them.

Gawker’s Gabrielle Bluestone discovered there are only three ZIP codes in all of America which are untainted by Ashley Madison in that there is no record of AM users in those places.

But, wait. Those 3 zip codes are not in AM only because of their sparse population and lack of Internet service. They are:

  1. Nikolai, Alaska (zip code 99691) — Population: 94 (2010 Census)
  2. Perryville, Alaska (99648) — Population: 113 (2010 Census)
  3. Polvadera, New Mexico (87828) — Population:269 (2010 Census)

Read more about those 3 zip codes here.

Meanwhile, the enterprising editor-in-chief of Gizmodo, Annalee Newitz, took a detailed look at the leaked data, and concluded that most of Ashley Madison’s female accounts are fake. From Yahoo!Celebrity:

The official numbers from the site showed that 31 million of the accounts belonged to men while 5 million supposedly were linked to females. However, Newitz…found that a whopping 10,000 accounts were created with the Ashleymadison.com email, implying that they were test subscriptions. Nine thousand of those 10,000 belonged to women, while the remaining numbers were either categorized as male or no gender specified….

Ashley Madison was fueled by a façade of fake accounts. “What I discovered was that the world of Ashley Madison…isn’t a debauched wonderland of men cheating on their wives,” the tech editor wrote. “It isn’t even a sadscape of 31 million men competing to attract those 5.5 million women in the database. Instead, it’s like a science fictional future where every woman on Earth is dead, and some Dilbert-like engineer has replaced them with badly-designed robots… When you look at the evidence, it’s hard to deny that the overwhelming majority of men using Ashley Madison weren’t having affairs. They were paying for a fantasy….

Out of 5.5 million female accounts, roughly zero percent had ever shown any kind of activity at all, after the day they were created. Ashley Madison employees did a pretty decent job making their millions of women’s accounts look alive. They left the data in these inactive accounts visible to men, showing nicknames, pictures, sexy comments…. Ashley Madison is a site where tens of millions of men write mail, chat, and spend money for women who aren’t there.

In other words, Ashley Madison was a gigantic con game of its founder-CEO Noel Biderman.

Noel Biderman

The families of police captain Michael Gorhum and the Canadian suicide man should sue Noel Biderman.

St. Mary’s Academy in Portland rescinds job offer after learning candidate is gay

No doubt a lawsuit is on the way.

st marys academy

Oregon Live: St. Mary’s Academy in downtown Portland rescinded a job offer to an academic counselor after learning the 27-year-old woman is gay.

Lauren Brown

Lauren Brown

Lauren Brown said the private Roman Catholic school in late July pulled its offer for a college counseling position after she told an administrator about her sexual orientation. Willamette Week reported late Tuesday that Brown was offered a year’s salary to withdraw from consideration and to keep quiet about it.

Christina Friedhoff, president of the all-girls school, acknowledged the situation in a letter sent home to parents Tuesday. “St. Mary’s is grounded in the Catholic religion,” Friedhoff wrote. “We ask that the faculty and staff support and nurture the Catholic identity, practice, culture and mission on which we were founded.”

“We understand that others may hold different values, and we respect the right of individuals in society to do so. At the same time, as a Catholic high school, we are obligated to follow our current Catholic teachings regarding same-sex marriage in our employment practices.”

She notes that the school’s board of directors and the schools founders, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, support the decision. The Catholic Sentinel, the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of Portland, reported that Portland Archbishop Alexander Sample also supports the school’s actions.

“We expect that given certain reassurances by the federal government in the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling making ‘same-sex unions’ the law of the land, our religious liberty would be protected in this case as well as any future cases of this sort,” the archbishop said in a statement.

Friedhoff asked parents to pray for the school, which she said will experience a “difficult time” given the public attention the decision has generated. The school, which traces its roots back to 1859, has about 700 students. Classes for the upcoming academic year are scheduled to begin next week.

The school’s usually lively Facebook page and Twitter feed have both been suspended. The school’s website continues to link to the pages, though they show all content is unavailable.

Meanwhile, St. Mary’s students and alumni upset by school administrators’ actions have taken to social media to express their outrage. On Twitter, they are using the #FightForSMA hashtag.
