December 3, 2020 (Inside the Vatican) — “O God, you are awesome from your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives strength and power to his people.” —Psalm 68:35

On November 19, 2020, the founder of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, declared that “Covid is an opportunity for a global reset.”

In reality, Schwab was slavishly repeating what Jacques Attali said in the French weekly L’Express on May 3, 2009 [so, 11 years ago]: “History teaches us that humanity evolves significantly only when it is really afraid: then it initially develops defense mechanisms; sometimes intolerable (scapegoats and totalitarianisms); sometimes useless (distractions); sometimes effective (therapies, which, if necessary, may depart from all previous moral principles). Then, once the crisis is over, fear transforms these mechanisms to make them compatible with individual freedom and inscribe them as policies of a healthy democracy.”

Back then it was the swine flu which, according to the media, was expected to cause millions of deaths and for which nations bought millions of doses of vaccines never used, because they proved useless, from “Big Pharma.” Useless for all — except for those who sold them, making huge profits.

One might wonder why a flu virus that according to recent WHO data has a mortality (0.13%) slightly higher than that of a normal seasonal flu syndrome (0.10%) could have led to the declaration of the pandemic and to a series of practically identical countermeasures in almost all European nations and the American continent.

One might also wonder why Covid-19 treatments are generally discredited, minimized or prohibited, while the vaccine is considered the most effective solution.

And it needs to be explained how it is possible to create a vaccine, since — according to the statements of the US CDC (United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) — the virus has not yet been isolated.

What antigen may be used, if the virus SARS-CoV-2 cannot be isolated and replicated?

And what reliability can the virus tests have, since the tests are calibrated to detect only on the generic “Coronavirus” in general?

And if on October 19 the Spallanzani Hospital in Rome announced the develop of a test that distinguishes between normal flu and Covid-19, may we know what so far have patients who undergo the new test been found positive for?

UPDATE (5/21/2020) - 

The Catholic bishops of Minnesota along with state’s Lutheran leaders have informed their governor that they will defy his continued lockdown order for houses of worship and will begin public religious services in time for Pentecost.

The order allows malls, shops, and other retailers to open their doors at fifty percent capacity, and allows businesses—from pet-grooming services to medical cannabis operations—to resume in-person operations...but explicitly leaves in place bans on in-person worship services for more than ten people.

The bold move was announced in separate letters sent simultaneously to Minnesota Governor Tim Walz and Attorney General Keith Ellison from Most Rev. Bernard A. Hebda, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis; from the presidents of the two Lutheran Church Minnesota districts; and from the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, the attorney group working on behalf of the reopening churches.

The religious leaders chose to act in defiance of the governor after he revealed his plan last week to reopen commerce in the state while keeping in place the limit for church services to ten people or less. Weeks of dialogue with the governor aimed at achieving equal treatment for houses of worship had reportedly gone nowhere.

And, although there are more than 85 archdioceses in North America, this is a good start.

Archbishop Hebda is to be commended for his courage and action in the face of discrimination by the state government.

While the "Mall of America" and casinos were allowed to reopen by the state at 50% capacity, churches were held to just 10 people per service.

And, thus, the Archbishop rightly judged the policy to discriminate against houses of worship.

Please READ THE FULL STORY by clicking on this link.

And if you haven't already, please SIGN this petition, which ask ALL the bishops of the Church to be courageous in restoring the sacraments to their flocks.

UPDATE (4/15/2020)

In the first instance of reinstating the sacraments to the faithful in the U.S., the bishop of Las Cruces, New Mexico has lifted a diocesan ban on public Masses, stating in a letter to his priests that “depriving the faithful of the nourishment offered through the Eucharist” cannot “become the ‘status quo’ for the foreseeable future.”

Bishop Peter Baldacchino advised his priests in the April 15 letter obtained by the Catholic News Agency that they can resume offering the sacraments as long as they abide by state-order health directives.

Bishop Baldacchino stated: "While it is true that we need to take every reasonable precaution to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, it is equally true that we offer the greatest ‘essential service’ to our people."

Let us congratulate Bishop Baldacchino for this courageous step! And, let us also encourage his brother bishops to follow his example.

Thank you for continuing to SIGN this urgent and crucial petition.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Please SIGN this petition, asking our bishops to work tirelessly to find creative and safe ways to restore, to us, their flock, the sacraments through which our Blessed Lord's sanctifying graces flow.

We read in the Holy Bible: "As a shepherd tends his flock when he finds himself among his scattered sheep, so will I tend My sheep. I will rescue them from every place where they were scattered when it was cloudy and dark ... the injured I will bind up, the sick I will heal (but the sleek and the strong I will destroy) shepherding them rightly." Ezekiel 34

During the first years of his reign, one of Pope Francis' most oft-repeated words was "accompaniment."

In Evangelium Gaudii, the word was used nine times, in Amoris Laetitia, five times. In many cases, the word was used in a challenging tone and in the general context of ambiguity that has come to define the Francis pontificate. Almost always, the word was meant to challenge the traditions of the Catholic Church.

But the tradition of Holy Mother Church is one of radical accompaniment, like that of a mother who would never allow herself to be separated from her child.

Now, more than ever, immersed as we are in a world threatened by the spiritual plague of secularism and the physical plague of the Chinese coronavirus, we need our shepherds to protect and feed their flock.

Please SIGN this petition, encouraging our bishops to be fearless and creative in their administration of the sacraments.

One need not be a medical doctor or a doctor of theology to know that if outdoor physical recreation and grocery shopping is essential and can be accomplished safely during this pandemic, so, too, can the exercise of religious services.

There is a battle raging all around us in which the secular world is seeking to eliminate all signs of Christ's presence among us.

The current pandemic, like all times of crisis, can be an opportunity to be the light of the world. But make no mistake about it, the enemy of God will use a time of crisis as well. He will use it to separate men from each other and from God.

SIGN this petition to implore the bishops to use all available safe and creative means to restore the sacraments to the faithful.

Thank you!

Perhaps this lack of clarity is why some members of the Moderna and Pfizer boards of directors have sold part of their company shares.

So let’s go back to the questions that many posed to themselves months ago, and to the never-contradicted contents of my two Open Letters to President Trump: a world plan appears in its disconcerting reality. The architects of the plan, creating an unjustified social alarm about an alleged pandemic — that today we see is no more serious than a normal flu, as confirmed by official data from all over the world — has been used to create a tremendous global social and economic crisis and so to legitimize the drastic reduction of the basic rights of the population. It is what its authors themselves call the Great Reset: the global reset of the economy, of society and of masses of people.

In this project, the Covid virus plays a fundamental role, as an alibi that justifies — in the face of the “totem” of a science that has prostituted itself to the interests of an elite after having abdicated its mission to save human lives — the deprivation of freedom, the interference of governments in the private life of its citizens, the establishment of a pseudo-health regime in which, against all objective scientific evidence, the number of diners, the distance between people, the possibility of buying, selling, breathing and even praying, is decided from above.

Someone, in the deafening silence of the Catholic Hierarchy, has imposed the closure of churches or the limitation of religious celebrations, considering the House of God as a cinema or a museum, but at the same time declaring abortion clinics “essential services.”

These are the paradoxes of a misguided power, managed by people corrupt in the soul and sold out to Satan, a power which, after obsessively repeating the mantras of “democracy” and “power belongs to the people” is now forced to impose a dictatorship on the people themselves, in the name of the achievement of objectives aimed at protecting the political and financial interests of the elite.

The rich are getting richer and richer, while the middle classes that constitute the social fabric and the very soul of nations is being cut down.

The French Revolution wiped out the Western aristocracy.

The Industrial Revolution obliterated the peasants and spread the proletarianization which led to the disaster of Socialism and Communism.

The Revolution of ’68 demolished the family and the school.

This Great Reset, desired by the globalist elite, represents the final revolution with which to create a shapeless and anonymous mass of slaves connected to the internet, confined to the house, threatened by an endless series of pandemics designed by those who already have the miraculous vaccine ready.

Precisely in these days, with the harmony of a plan that seems orchestrated in every detail under a single leadership, the imposition of a vaccine is being theorized by many parties, even before the vaccine’s actual effectiveness is fully known, and even before the vaccine’s possible side-effects may be fully ascertained.

This obligation to receive a vaccine is projected by many to occur alongside the issuance by a “health passport,” so that those who have such a passport may move without limitations, while those who refuse a vaccine would not be able to use means of transport, attend restaurants and visit public places, schools and offices.

That this represents an intolerable violation of the individual’s freedoms does not seem to be a problem: law-makers do not hesitate to sack parliaments to impose their tyrannical norms, knowing that their power exists as long as they obey the Great Reset agenda, endorsed by the international institutions such as the European Union and the UN.

Faced with such a massive and coordinated deployment of forces we remain astonished, bewildered by the impudence of those who are telling us, in essence, that we must silently accept the dictatorship of a faceless power group, because that is how the group has decided.

We are disconcerted by the enslavement of the world Left — and of the Democrats in the United States — to this agenda, which knows no limits, no restraints on its execution, to the point of organizing an electoral coup of such magnitude and gravity as to be horrified.

The manual fraud of duplicate ballots, the votes of deceased people, citizens who discover they have voted a thousand times and employees who tamper with the results by obscuring the windows of the polling stations with cardboard panels, is accompanied by the use of a vote-counting apparatus which is proving not only to be open to fraudulent use, but even to have been designed at the software level to allow the shifting of votes from one candidate to another, based on a complex algorithm.

We discover that the people behind this macroscopic fraud are always the same, always of the same political party, always subservient to the same ideology. People corrupt in intellect and will, because they made themselves the slaves of a ruthless tyrant, after refusing to obey a good, just and merciful Lord.

Thus, as these have accepted the slavery of sin and rebellion against God, today they would like to drag the whole of humanity into an abyss of death and despair: it is the miserable revenge of Satan, who, not being able to defeat the One who cast him into hell, tries to drag with him as many souls as possible, in an attempt to frustrate the work of Redemption.

We, believers in Christ Our Only Lord, have no reason to fear, even against all human reason: we know that, reborn in Baptism, we are no longer servants but children of God, and that by preserving the friendship of our Lord with Grace we can trust in Him, in His provident help, in His powerful protection.

Ultimately, this is true freedom: the freedom of the children of God, who obey His law not out of fear but out of love, not out of compulsion but because in adhering to the divine will they will find their own perfect fulfillment and their complete realization.

For every soul is created for the greater glory of God, for eternal bliss as a reward of fidelity to the Savior.

Don’t let our hearts be troubled!

The maneuvers of those who work in darkness are coming to light, showing themselves in all their horror and revealing their perverse and infernal matrix.

Lies, deceptions, violence, death: this is the harsh reality of evil before which people of good will can only be horrified.

If Our Lord deigns to listen to the prayers of His children, this castle of lies and fraud will collapse miserably, and its architects will have to go back into hiding to escape the rigors of justice and the execration of peoples.

These are decisive hours: we continue to pray, to recite the Holy Rosary, to nourish ourselves with the Most Holy Eucharist, to do penance.

The choral voice that rises up to the throne of the divine Majesty will not remain unheard.

Let us not be discouraged, because it is in the moment of trial that the Lord gives us the opportunity to show our trust in Him and to see the greatness of His mercy.

“Whatsoever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son” (Jn 14, 13). Our Lord told us clearly: anything.

We therefore ask the Father, in the name of the Son our Lord and Redeemer, through the intercession of His most holy Mother our powerful mediator, to show His glory, to grant the exaltation of Holy Church, peace and prosperity to the Christian peoples, the conversion of sinners, the defeat of His enemies.

God arises, and his enemies will be scattered, and those who hate him will flee before him” (Psalm 68:1).

St Catherine of Alexandria, Virgin and Martyr

Here is the text in the original Italian:

O Dio, tu sei tremendo dal tuo santuario; il Dio d’Israele dà forza e potenza al suo popolo. —Sal 68, 35

Il 19 Novembre 2020 il fondatore del World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, ha dichiarato che «Il Covid è l’occasione per un reset mondiale». In realtà Schwab ripete pedissequamente ciò che il 3 Maggio 2009, sul settimanale francese L’Express, disse Jacques Attali: «La storia ci insegna che l’umanità evolve significativamente soltanto quando ha realmente paura: allora essa inizialmente sviluppa meccanismi di difesa; a volte intollerabili (dei capri espiatori e dei totalitarismi); a volte inutili (della distrazione); a volte efficaci (delle terapeutiche, che allontanano se necessario tutti i principi morali precedenti). Poi, una volta passata la crisi, la paura trasforma questi meccanismi per renderli compatibili con la libertà individuale ed iscriverli in una politica di salute democratica». Allora si trattava della febbre suina, che secondo i media avrebbe dovuto causare milioni di vittime e per la quale gli Stati acquistarono da BigPharma milioni di dosi di vaccini mai utilizzati perché rivelatisi inutili. Inutili per tutti, fuorché per coloro che li hanno venduti con enormi profitti.

Ci si potrebbe chiedere come mai un virus influenzale che secondo i dati recenti dell’OMS ha una mortalità (0,13%) di poco superiore a quella di una normale sindrome influenzale stagionale (0,10%) possa aver portato alla dichiarazione della pandemia e ad una serie di contromisure praticamente identiche in quasi tutti gli Stati europei e del continente americano. Ci si potrebbe chiedere anche la ragione per cui le cure per il Covid-19 siano generalmente screditate, minimizzate o proibite, mentre il vaccino viene considerato la soluzione più efficace; e sarebbe da comprendere come sia possibile creare un vaccino, dal momento che – secondo le dichiarazioni del CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) statunitense – il virus non è stato ancora isolato: quale antigene viene utilizzato, se non si può isolare e replicare il SARS-CoV-2? e quale affidabilità possono avere i tamponi, dal momento che essi sono calibrati solo sul Coronavirus generico? E se il 19 Ottobre l’Ospedale Spallanzani di Roma ha annunciato la sperimentazione di un test che distingue tra normale influenza e Covid-19, finora a cosa risultano positivi i pazienti che vi si sottopongono? Forse è per questo che alcuni membri del board di Moderna e della Pfizer hanno venduto parte delle proprie azioni.

Torniamo così alle domande che molti si erano posti mesi orsono, e alla mia denuncia contenuta nelle due Lettere Aperte al Presidente Trump: appare nella sua sconcertante realtà un piano mondiale i cui artefici, creando un ingiustificato allarme sociale su una presunta pandemia che oggi vediamo non essere più grave di una normale sindrome influenzale come confermano i dati ufficiali di tutto il mondo, viene utilizzata per creare una tremenda crisi sociale ed economica globale e legittimare la drastica riduzione dei diritti basilari della popolazione. È quello che viene definito dai suoi stessi autori il Great Reset, il resettaggio globale dell’economia, della società, delle masse.

In questo progetto il Covid gioca un ruolo fondamentale, come alibi che giustifica – dinanzi al totem di una scienza prostituitasi agli interessi dell’élite dopo aver abdicato alla sua missione di salvare vite umane – la privazione della libertà, l’intromissione dei governi nella vita privata dei cittadini, l’instaurazione di un regime pseudo-sanitario in cui, contro ogni evidenza scientifica oggettiva, viene deciso dall’alto il numero di commensali, la distanza tra le persone, la possibilità di comprare, vendere, respirare e addirittura di pregare. Qualcuno, nel silenzio assordante della Gerarchia, ha imposto la chiusura delle chiese o la limitazione delle celebrazioni religiose, considerando la Casa di Dio come un cinema o un museo, ma allo stesso tempo dichiarando “servizi essenziali” le cliniche abortive. Sono i paradossi di un potere traviato, gestito da persone corrotte nell’anima e vendute a Satana, che dopo aver ripetuto ossessivamente il mantra della democrazia e del potere che appartiene al popolo si trova oggi costretto ad imporre la dittatura contro lo stesso popolo, in nome del raggiungimento di obbiettivi volti a tutelare gli interessi politici e finanziari dell’élite. I ricchi si stanno arricchendo sempre di più, mentre viene falciato via quel ceto medio che costituisce il tessuto sociale e l’anima stessa delle Nazioni.

La Rivoluzione Francese cancellò l’aristocrazia occidentale; la Rivoluzione Industriale cancellò i contadini e diffuse la proletarizzazione che portò alla sciagura del Socialismo e del Comunismo; la Rivoluzione del Sessantotto demolì la famiglia e la scuola. Questo Great Reset, voluto dall’élite globalista, rappresenta l’ultima rivoluzione con la quale creare una massa informe e anonima di schiavi connessi alla rete, confinati in casa, minacciati da una serie infinita di pandemie progettate da chi ha già pronto il miracoloso vaccino. Proprio in questi giorni, con la sincronia di un piano orchestrato nei minimi particolari sotto un’unica regia, da più parti si va teorizzando l’imposizione del vaccino, del quale peraltro non si conosce la reale efficacia né le conseguenze che esso potrà avere. A quest’obbligo dovrebbe accompagnarsi anche un passaporto sanitario, in modo che quanti ne sono provvisti possano muoversi senza limitazioni, mentre coloro che lo rifiutano non dovrebbero poter usare i mezzi di trasporto, frequentare ristoranti e locali pubblici, scuole e uffici. Che questo rappresenti una intollerabile violazione delle libertà dell’individuo non pare costituire un problema: i legislatori non esitano ad esautorare i Parlamenti per imporre le loro norme tiranniche, sapendo che il loro potere sussiste finché obbediscono all’agenda del Great Reset, fatta propria dalle istituzioni internazionali come l’Unione Europea e l’ONU.

Dinanzi ad uno spiegamento di forze così massiccio e coordinato rimaniamo attoniti, sconcertati dalla sfacciataggine di chi ci sta dicendo, in sostanza, che dobbiamo accettare in silenzio la dittatura di un gruppo di potere senza volto, perché così esso ha deciso. Restiamo sconcertati dall’asservimento della Sinistra mondiale – e dei Dem negli Stati Uniti – a questa agenda, che non conosce nessun limite, nessun freno alla propria esecuzione; al punto da organizzare un colpo di stato elettorale di tale portata e gravità da lasciare inorriditi. Ai brogli manuali delle schede duplicate, dei voti di persone defunte, dei cittadini che scoprono di aver votato mille volte e degli impiegati che manomettono i risultati oscurando le finestre dei seggi con pannelli di cartone si affianca l’uso di un apparato di computo dei voti che sta dimostrando non solo il suo uso fraudolento, ma di esser stato addirittura progettato a livello di software per consentire lo spostamento di voti da un candidato all’altro, sulla base di un complesso algoritmo.

Scopriamo che le persone dietro a questa frode macroscopica sono sempre le stesse, sempre della stessa parte politica, sempre asservite alla stessa ideologia. Persone corrotte nell’intelletto e nella volontà, perché si sono rese schiave di un tiranno spietato, dopo aver rifiutato di obbedire a un Signore buono, giusto e misericordioso. Così, come costoro hanno accettato la schiavitù del peccato e della ribellione a Dio, essi oggi vorrebbero trascinare l’intera umanità in un baratro di morte e disperazione: è la miserabile vendetta di Satana, che non potendo sconfiggere Colui che lo ha scacciato negli inferi, cerca di trascinare con sé quante più anime possibile, nel tentativo di vanificare l’opera della Redenzione.

Noi, credenti in Cristo Nostro Unico Signore, non abbiamo motivo di temere, anche contro ogni ragione umana: noi sappiamo che, rinati nel Battesimo, non siamo più servi ma figli di Dio, e che conservando con la Grazia l’amicizia del nostro Signore possiamo confidare in Lui, nel Suo provvidente soccorso, nella Sua potente protezione. Questa è, in definitiva, la vera libertà: la libertà dei figli di Dio, che obbediscono alla Sua legge non per timore ma per amore, non per costrizione ma perché nell’adesione alla volontà divina essi troveranno il proprio perfetto compimento e la loro piena realizzazione. Poiché ogni anima è creata per la maggior gloria di Dio, per la beatitudine eterna come premio della fedeltà al Salvatore.

Non sia turbato il nostro cuore! Le manovre di chi opera nelle tenebre stanno venendo alla luce, mostrandosi in tutto il loro orrore e svelando la loro matrice perversa e infernale. Menzogne, inganni, violenze, morte: questa è la cruda realtà del male dinanzi alla quale le persone di buona volontà non possono che inorridire. Se Nostro Signore si degnerà di ascoltare le preghiere dei Suoi figli, questo castello di menzogne e di frodi crollerà miseramente, e i suoi artefici dovranno tornare a nascondersi per sfuggire ai rigori della giustizia e all’esecrazione dei popoli.

Queste sono ore decisive: continuiamo a pregare, a recitare il Santo Rosario, a nutrirci della Santissima Eucaristia, a fare penitenza. La voce corale che si leva fino al trono della divina Maestà non rimarrà inascoltata. Non lasciamoci scoraggiare, perché è nel momento della prova che il Signore ci dà la possibilità di mostrare la nostra fiducia in Lui e di vedere la grandezza della Sua misericordia.

«Qualunque cosa chiederete nel nome mio, la farò, perché il Padre sia glorificato nel Figlio» (Gv 14, 13). Nostro Signore ce l’ha detto chiaramente: qualsiasi cosa. Chiediamo dunque al Padre, nel nome del Figlio nostro Signore e Redentore, per l’intercessione della Sua santissima Madre nostra potente mediatrice, di mostrare la Sua gloria, di concedere l’esaltazione della Santa Chiesa, la pace e la prosperità ai popoli cristiani, la conversione dei peccatori, la disfatta dei Suoi nemici.

«Si alzi Dio, e i suoi nemici saranno dispersi, e quelli che l’odiano fuggiranno davanti a lui» (Sal 68, 1).
