31 October and 1 and 2 November are called, colloquially (not officially), “Hallowtide” or the “Days of the Dead” because on these days we pray for or remember those who’ve left this world.
The days of the dead center around All Saints’ Day (also known as All Hallows’) on November 1, when we celebrate all the Saints in Heaven. On the day after All Hallows’, called “All Souls’ Day,” we remember the saved souls who are in Purgatory, being cleansed of the temporal effects of their sins before they can enter Heaven. The day that comes before All Hallows’, though, is one on which we unofficially remember the damned and the reality of Hell. The schema, then, for the Days of the Dead looks like this:
Can Halloween be Christianized Again? – (Halloween, a Feast of Charity to the Poor and the Dead) On Return to Order
This is exactly what the Church did to Halloween. In the ninth century, this pagan festival was replaced by a double day celebration remembering all the dead that are saved. All Saints Day remembers those who are uncanonized in heaven so that they might have their feast too. All Souls Day remembers the poor souls who are saved from the eternal fires of hell yet are suffering for a time in purgatory.
On the eve of these two feasts, the bells would ring, and town criers would remind all to pray for the poor souls. Thus, on All Hallows Eve, later Halloween, children from poor families would go door-to-door, receiving food and sweets in exchange for praying for the souls of the dead. This “souling” as it was called, gave rise to canvassing for “soul” cakes which became part of the tradition.
The Fire of Purgatory Comes from Hell – On OnePeterFive
There is in Purgatory, as in Hell, a double pain – the pain of loss and the pain of sense. The pain of loss consists in being deprived for a time of the sight of God, who is the Supreme Good, the beatific end for which our souls are made, as our eyes are for the light. It is a moral thirst which torments the soul. The pain of sense, or sensible suffering, is the same as what we experience in our flesh. Its nature is not defined by faith, but it is the common opinion of the Doctors that it consists in fire and other species of suffering. The fire of Purgatory, say the Fathers, is that of Hell, of which the rich glutton speaks, Quia crucior in hac flamma, “I suffer,” he says, “cruelly in these flames.”
The support and promotion of the culture of death is seen everywhere both within Society and within many sectors of the Holy Catholic Church . It is paired with the next phase of the revolution.
The stages of the revolution began with the protestant revolution that sought personal gain through personal interpretation of Scripture and authority which included deposing of the theocratic monarchies . This was followed by the enlightenment’s resurgence of paganism, naturalism, and freemasonry that saw highlights from the French revolution onward. Out of these philosophies emerged the communist revolution that saw its various forms of socialism run abroad with personal property & that of the Church abrogated in many places , then the sexual revolution that began in the 1960s and continues. All of rolls-up into the current revolution of progressive modernism which supports the elements of the culture of death and infiltrates the Church , in which, we are currently experiencing a rapid convergence of.
The culture of death can be found within the promotion of all of the following : contraception, abortion, pharmaceutical abortion, eugenics, euthanasia (a fancy word for murdering yourself with accomplices ) , homosexuality, lesbianism, transvestite //transgender variations , communism , socialism, protestantism, paganism, various forms of anti-trinitarianism, arians, adventists, jehovahs, buddhists, and most especially islamic mohammedanism
They are also basically the same thing = variations on the culture of death , they share resources , politically , financially, and spiritually , and in a myriad of ways are converging for the soul purposes of dethroning Christ on its way to their proposal to attempt to make their version of man a god

“Thou has permitted us to be associated with the sorrows of Pius IX, and , having shared in his humiliations we found ourselves violently separated from our Father. But, Lord, having been driven form that Roman soil, where we kept watch round the tomb of the Holy Apostles, Thou didst prepare other duties for us and didst permit that the soldiers of the Pope should become the soldiers of France. We came to the battlefield armed for the fight; Thy adorable Heart on our standard overshadowed our battalions.”
Irish government approves excavation of Catholic orphanage mass grave site
Church-run homes in Ireland housed orphans, unmarried pregnant women and their babies for most of the 20th century. The institutions have been subject to intense public scrutiny since a local historian in 2014 tracked down death certificates for nearly 800 children who had died as residents of the facility – but could find a burial record for only one child.
Investigators later found a mass grave containing remains of babies and young children from 35 weeks to 3-years-old on the grounds of the home, which closed in 1961.
Zappone raised the mass grave scandal with Pope Francis when he visited Ireland in August, calling it a “shameful chapter of recent Irish history.” The pope urged the Irish Church to make reparations to the home’s survivors for its role.
What the Lord of the Rings Teaches about Today’s Crisis in the Church –By Joe Terlisner On OnePeterFive
“The other thread that winds its way through the entire story is a lesson of Providence, and this is the source of the hope that separates Sam from Frodo. Although there is not an explicit religious creed to be found in Middle Earth, at least not one that fits the modern pluralistic conception of religion, there is very much a certitude of a benevolent higher power that directs the course of even the smallest events, and in truth, Middle Earth’s religious landscape is much truer to Catholic thought than the postmodern since it is accepted as simply a reality of life.
God only knows how the crisis in the Church will be brought to an end and how Tradition will be once again recognized to be integral to Catholicism. Like Sam, we must always hope, knowing that the darkness must pass, and we must always recognize the temptation to compromise with evil as a lie that will only bring us harm, even though God will mysteriously permit such evil to bring about a greater good. He will provide, and the Church will emerge victorious. “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
Two Historical Novels by Benson, Two Classic Liturgical Commentaries, and a Great Vocations Pamphlet – On Rorate
Robert Hugh Benson: The King’s Achievement, set in the times of Henry VIII, St Thomas More, St John Fisher, and the dissolution of the English monasteries, and By What Authority?, set in the reign of Queen Elizabeth and St Edmund Campion. The words “suspenseful, poignant, lyrical, brutal, and triumphant” come to mind in describing this pair of novels, in which Benson vividly depicted a world vexed and torn by religious debates, intrigues, and violence.

The Memorare: Unlimited Contrition and Confidence – On Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
The Memorare is perhaps the most hope-filled prayer in the Catholic Church, for the affirmation it makes is the most categorical possible: “Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection…was left unaided.”
If it was never known that anyone was left unaided, I, being someone, will not be left unaided in requesting Her help. Thus, I have not only the right but the obligation never to lose heart. As difficult as my plight may be, as much as I may be disgusted with and censure myself, if I ask Her to help me, She will help me. There may be a greater or lesser delay, but Her help will come.

From the book of Esther14:1-19 -The prayer of Queen Esther
Queen Esther, seized with mortal anguish, had recourse to the Lord. Taking off her splendid garments, she put on garments of distress and mourning. In place of her precious ointments she covered her head with dirt and ashes. She afflicted her body severely; all her festive adornments were put aside, and her hair was wholly disheveled.
Then she prayed to the Lord, the God of Israel, saying: “My Lord, our King, you alone are God. Help me, who am alone and have no help but you, for I am taking my life in my hand.
“As a child I was wont to hear from the people of the land of my forefathers that you, O Lord, chose Israel from among all peoples, and our fathers from among all their ancestors, as a lasting heritage, and that you fulfilled all your promises to them.
“But now we have sinned in your sight, and you have delivered us into the hands of our enemies, because we worshiped their gods. You are just, O Lord.
“But now they are not satisfied with our bitter servitude, but have undertaken to do away with the decree you have pronounced, and to destroy your heritage; to close the mouths of those who praise you, and to extinguish the glory of your temple and your altar; to open the mouths of the heathen to acclaim their false gods, and to extol an earthly king forever.
“O Lord, do not relinquish your scepter to those that are nought. Let them not gloat over our ruin, but turn their own counsel against them and make an example of our chief enemy. Be mindful of us, O Lord. Manifest yourself in the time of our distress and give me courage, King of gods and Ruler of every power. Put in my mouth persuasive words in the presence of the lion and turn his heart to hatred for our enemy, so that he and those who are in league with him may perish.
“Save us by your power, and help me, who am alone and have no one but you, O Lord. You know all things. You know that I hate the glory of the pagans, and abhor the bed of the uncircumcised or of any foreigner.
“You know that I am under constraint, that I abhor the sign of grandeur which rests on my head when I appear in public; abhor it like a polluted rag, and do not wear it in private. I, your handmaid, have never eaten at the table of Haman, nor have I graced the banquet of the king or drunk the wine of libations. From the day I was brought here till now, your handmaid has had no joy except in you, O Lord, God of Abraham.
“O God, more powerful than all, hear the voice of those in despair. Save us from the power of the wicked and deliver me from my fear.”
Tobit 4:15a. 16a. 18a. 19
Do to no one what you yourself dislike. Give to the hungry some of your bread, and to the naked some of your clothing. Seek counsel from every wise man. At all times bless the Lord God, and ask him to make all your paths straight and to grant success to all your endeavors and plans.
The Archangel Raphael_Christ Enthroned – Intercessor For Those With Sicknesses And Those Traveling
The Divine Messages which is the Book the prophet Daniel was told to shut up and not publish. It is the scroll that Saint John the Apostle was told to eat which was sweet to the mouth but bitter to his stomach which he too was instructed not to write down. We are in the time of the end and just as Holy Scripture tells us, many simply do not have the eyes nor the ears to see or hear. Our Lord Jesus has established His Holy Remnant Army and has blessed us with Holy Divine Discernment, Perseverance, Knowledge, Understanding, Wisdom, Strength, Piety and so many more Divine Gifts in order that we lead and reach the four corners of this Earth with His Final Words to this world before the prophecised Warning, Miracle, 3 Days of Darkness and finally His Second Coming. As in the days that Jesus walked this earth, there are many modern day Pharisees who work against Jesus’s Final Mission and who slander and degrade His chosen Prophet of our time. Yes, there are many false prophets arising but with the Divine gift of Discernment that God Our Father through Jesus Christ has Blessed us with we are able to distinguish who are false. Maria Divine Mercy IS the Final Prophet. The man now seated on the Seat of Peter IS the prophecised False Prophet in the Book of Revelations and he is leading the global flock to damnation which is why this Holy Remnant Army WILL NEVER STOP fighting for the souls of our brothers and sisters. Everything happening in the world NOW has been told to us years ago by Jesus, by God Our Father and by the Blessed Mother. It’s like ticking off the boxes as we witness this all unfolding before our very eyes. Its’ alarming to say the least but we are indeed in the time of the end and we Trust Jesus and Follow ONLY Jesus for Jesus IS the Church. He is the Cornerstone and God Our Father is the Foundation.
As we witness Mr. Bergoglio the False Prophet Dismantling the Holy Catholic Church with the help of his cohorts who are within the walls of the Vatican and outside the walls of the Vatican, who are all Free Masons whose only goal is to destroy Christianity and the Catholic Church… we bleed in our hearts, we cry tears from our hearts that cover our souls, who we really are. But we stand firmly rooted in Jesus Christ and we fight for the preservation of the Catholic Church and the teachings of God Our Father and Jesus Christ in order to save souls. We were born into this particular generation for one reason and one reason only and that is to help Our Father in Heaven through Jesus Christ to SAVE SOULS. We will NEVER give up. We will NEVER follow the False Prophet. We will ALWAYS pray for our True and Only and Final Pope, Pope Benedict who was ousted by this demonic group within the Church through a very evil plan they devised on March 17, 2011 to get him out of their way so they could place the false prophet on the Seat of Peter who will in turn hand the Seat of Peter over to the literal son of satan, the Antichrist who is now being prepared to take the global stage. The False Prophet will lead millions to accept this beast. Our Father in Heaven does not want to lose even one but He knows He will. He has written Prayers and Litanies that we are praying daily, which is supplication to Him for the many sins in this world and for the Salvation of Souls. The Warning is a great gift from God, for without it very few will ever enter the Heavenly Kingdom. Jesus is clear that NO ONE, not even Him, knows the exact hour or date of the Warning or His Second Coming, that Only God Our Father knows this but we are to accept, understand and prepare because ALL of this is happening in OUR LIFETIMES. We are the chosen generation. For now the laity, the Holy Remnant are leading this mission with Jesus as our Commander in Chief… but Jesus is clear that Soon, His Sacred Servants, His Priests who will not betray Him, will take the lead. Until this happens which will probably be after the Warning.. we the laity, the Holy Remnant will continue on the front lines of this Holy War for souls and we fight with every fiber in us. We take the hits, the persecution, the slander, the accusations, the lies, the name calling and we carry the cross with dignity as Our Mother of Salvation has instructed us and we march forward to victory with Jesus, with as many souls in tow as possible.
November 8 2010-2017 7th Anniversary of the Mission of Salvation and the Book of Truth
The Book of Truth is mentioned in Daniel 10:21. This is where a mysterious Book of Truth is referred to. Gabriel explains to Daniel that everything that has been revealed to him about the future and the end times is to be found in the Book of Truth. Daniel is told to seal it up as it is to be left to another time called “The Time Of The End.”
The Book of Truth, in 5 volumes so far, has been given to the world at this time in history through Maria Divine Mercy from the Holy Trinity and Mary, Mother of Salvation. It is about the Mission of Salvation for all souls in preparation for what is known as The Warning/The Illumination of Conscience/The Great Mercy/The Great Confession and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The Book of Truth is meant for this present generation.

Cacophony and Monotony are the Twin Principles of Modern Design. Whatever Happened to Harmony? D. Clayton On Novus Motus Liturgicus
“When I look at most buildings designed in the traditional manner – this would be most built before the Second World War – it strikes me that the goal of the architect in his design is beauty, and that he seeks visual harmony through an appropriate proportioning of the parts in their different magnitudes.”
In The Decline and Fall of the Roman Church, Father Martin says this Lefebvre material included documentation of Freemasonic affiliations of various Cardinals, together with sexual scandal, including photos of some Vatican officials with their girl friends and others with their boy friends. Unless I misread him, Father Martin seems to imply that it is a strange coincidence that Pope John Paul I’s death followed so quickly upon his receipt of this expose material from Archbishop Lefebvre.Whatever one thinks of that speculation, and the claims about the “murder” of JP-I attributed to unnamed sources in Yallop’s In God’s Name, there is no doubt that Mino Pecorelli, editor of the expose newspaper L’Osservatore Politico Internazionale, did send JP-I a list of P2 and Grand Loge Alpina members on the the staff of the Vatican Bank just before that Pontiff’s sudden demise. What happened to Pecorelli leaves little room for speculation. He was shot dead on a street in Rome, quite definitely by professional assassins.
If you must speculate, Signor Pecorelli was shot through the mouth – ‘the sasso in bocca’, the traditional Mafia punishment for informers.

There is probably not one member of the body present that day who remembers what the Pope said that day in 1988. The day was memorable, however, on account of an incident that took place just as His Holiness began to speak.That was when the Rev. Ian Paisley, the notorious anti-Catholic bigot and a member of the parliament from Northern Ireland, stood up, unfurled a banner, and started shouting the same thing proclaimed by his banner. That was that the Pope (for Paisley it would be any pope) is the Antichrist.
Paisley’s demonstration did not last long. Another member of the parliament, one from Bavaria, raced up the aisle, tore the banner from Paisley’s hands and, with three other men, hustled the obscene Protestant leader out of the chamber. The member from Bavaria was Archduke Otto von Habsburg.
That of everyone present it was the Archduke who acted to defend the Pope ought to have been expected. For 1,200 years his family’s historical mission was to uphold the interests of the Faith temporally

Pope Pius XI on False Ecumenism and No Salvation outside the Church – Catholicism.org
“he unity of Christians cannot be otherwise obtained than by securing the return of the separated to the one true Church of Christ from which they once unhappily withdrew. To the one true Church of Christ, We say, that stands forth before all, and that by the will of its Founder will remain forever the same as when He Himself established it for the salvation of all mankind.”
‘Let them listen to Lactantius crying: “It is only the Catholic Church that retains the true worship. It is the fountain of truth, it is the household of the faith, it is the temple of God: If anyone does not enter it, or if anyone departs from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation. Let no one deceive himself by continuous wranglings. Life and salvation are in the balance, which if not looked to carefully and diligently will be lost and destroyed.”
