The Prophetic Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI

TO OUR LADY OF SANTA MARIA MAGGIORE

KNOWN AT ROME AS: SALUS POPULI ROMANI*

(May 7, 2005)

salus

In Nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

Tutta Santa, degna di ogni onore,
Tu la migliore offerta
che l’umanità possa presentare a Dio.

All Holy, Worthy of every honor,

Governmental reaction to Corona Hype will soon cause rioting in every major city of the globe

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The idiots.

Don’t they understand anything?

They are closing restaurants and bars and insisting that everyone go to their local supermarket where they will surely be infected by using the carriages and shopping carts and baskets which are touched by everyone!

The are herding everyone to the same few points of sale, as if they WANT to increase infections rates!

They are forcing everyone, who does not live on a farm, to obtain their food from only one portion of the food industry.

They are banning work which is “not essential”, and they decide what is not essential!

These actions will cause a collapse of the economy, food shortages and eventually food riots.

The Case at Rome

I can see in happening here at Rome. Carrafour, a national supermarket chain, which has some stores which are open 24/7 — that is 24 hours a day, 7 days each week — has closed these stores from midnight to 7:30 am each day.  The decision was made last week.

But today, there is a new announcement. These stores will not open until 8:30 A. M., as of this Sunday.

When you wait in line to enter — sometimes the wait is as much as 20 minutes — you find that there is nothing to buy: no bread, no meat, except the most expensive cuts. There are few or no eggs. Your shopping expenses have risen 100%.  And still the store cannot keep their shelves stocked.

The Case of Colombia

The panic is already causing credit issues in some countries. A Petition signed by nearly 300,000 citizens of Colombia asks Banks in that country to ameliorate their relationship with creditors and account holders.  Their online petition, in Spanish, at Change.org is eloquent.  Here is an English translation:

These are unique moments in our history when many people will be unemployed and many entrepreneurs in debt will be paying interest to banks while their businesses stop receiving income.

At these times money cannot be above life, health and people. That is why it is urgent that the Government and the Banks implement economic measures so that this pandemic does not cause serious problems for the Colombian economy.

Freezing interest while we manage to stop the Coronavirus is a very necessary measure so that those of us who pay loans and mortgages do not go bankrupt. It is urgent that in this unique crisis for our world the Banks finally stop thinking about making profits and commit themselves to society.

How do banks want to be remembered after this crisis? As companies that prefer money for life or as unique companies that bet on everything to overcome this pandemic together.

A Diabolically engineered response

This crisis is following the same pattern of the events in the Catholic Church in Feb. 2013: Fake News, Attacks on anyone who opposes the Narrative, which cannot be questioned and which becomes the new Reality, and above all mindless subservience to the Big Lie even to the point of entirely destroying the institutions over which you are placed (Catholic Church, Order of Malta, Religious Orders, Institutes, Dioceses).

The leaders of nations are all following the fake new and the hype and are refusing to ask the most basic statistical questions about the allegations of the Main Stream Media about mortality rates. 3.4% in Hospitals has nothing whatsoever to do with the mortality rates in the general population.

But they won’t do this.

They are preferring to starve people to death and cause riots in cities throughout the world, instead of speaking to anyone with the most basic training in statistical analysis. The Bishops are following suit and basically ending the Catholic religion, diocese by diocese.

All of this serves the Globalist agenda of imprisoning us and enslaving us and making us serve men rather than God. It is completely demonic.

Palestrina: Missa Assumpta est Maria in Caelum

As we continue our perusal of the sacred repertoire of  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the greatest Italian composer of the 16th century, we sample his Missa Assumpta est Maria in caelum, the Mass for the Assumption of Our Lady unto Heaven.

This performance is  by Peter Phillips, conductor and the Tallis sholars.

FromRome.Info features at 5 P.M. daily, Rome time, a selection of sacred music for the edification of our readers, so that they can better grasp how contrary to the very nature of Catholic liturgy were the so called “reforms” of Vatican II.

 

Open Letter to the Bishops who have shut down their dioceses

by Andrew J. Baalman

Blogging at Ordo Militaris Radio Blog

Your Excellencies,

By your lack of Faith and Trust In God and His Divine Providence, you have gone with what all secular and Anti-Christian Governments want and those in the Democratic Party want, to limit or close our churches and Dioceses out of fear, panic and hysteria.

You do a great dis-service to the People of God in taking away the Sacraments and even the Last Rites, Anointing Of The Sick:

annointing

You have removed the shepherds from the flock and now the roaring lion that never sleeps as Saint Peter warns us about the Devil, has free reign against us without the protection of the Sacraments! We need God, His Holy Church and the Sacraments He gave us to fight and combat all this evil! I assure you, this virus and where it is hitting, it is due to what happened in the Vatican with the Idolatry Worship of the pagan idol!

Not only are our priests who are going along with your decree to stop all Masses and Sacraments and closure of our churches acting like cowards, but also dishonoring the numerous Holy Priests who gave their own lives to be with their flock:

So, are you so scared of an illness and buying the hype and hysteria that you risk your flock’s souls? You are to be ashamed of yourself in calling yourselves shepherds, these men who risked their life for their flock on the battlefield are true shepherds!

To those who are not canceling Mass, the Sacraments and not closing your diocese, BRAVO! You are also true shepherds!

YouTube: We are “protecting” our workers and unleashing algorithmic censorship on you!

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Lefties’ default is always censorship, banning, restrictions, house arrest, etc..  The first sign of a Leftie is that in times of panic his reactions return to default, without any pretense.

YouTube showed their colors — not that they need to — today by announcing that “to protect” their workers, they were giving them leaves of absence and therefore, there will be fewer human beings to unblock you when their algorithms block your YouTube account.

Here is their official announcement (Source, remove white spaces: https ://youtube-creators.googleblog. com/2020/03/protecting-our-extended-workforce-and.html ):

Our Community Guidelines enforcement today is based on a combination of people and technology: Machine learning helps detect potentially harmful content and then sends it to human reviewers for assessment. As a result of the new measures we’re taking, we will temporarily start relying more on technology to help with some of the work normally done by reviewers. This means automated systems will start removing some content without human review, so we can continue to act quickly to remove violative content and protect our ecosystem, while we have workplace protections in place.

Somehow,  I get the sense that some YouTube employees will never return to work, even though they are now “protected”.

I also get the impression that the Management at YouTube sees the “crisis” caused by Wuhan-virus hype as their dream of dreams to implement Chinese like censorship.

Another sign that there is just too much political exploitation of the narrative to believe it anymore.

Letter to the Editor: Closing the Churches is killing priests!

Dear Editor,

I am on the phone with a very prayerful lay woman and she is truly a dear friend in Christ, like a grandmother to me. She has asked me to write you and anyone else I know (on her behalf) about the following, since she is still unfamiliar with email, typing and so forth. It is concerning a few points that nobody has really brought up in discussion anywhere in the so-called “Catholic” channels and websites that she frequents.

She says: “The priesthood is in trouble”. Her own pastor, this priest, is very, very troubled. He has shown a very deep sadness during his live streamed masses (which he has allowed lay people to attend despite the Diocese suspended all public masses). She says he is not the same priest that she knew prior to today’s morning mass. He looked very burdened with a tremendous heaviness to him that she had never seen before, all because the situation has deeply affected him especially by the fact that he cannot give holy communion to the faithful, even though they are present at the mass.

She says that the fact that the people or congregation have been taken away from priests, is “killing the priesthood” but the good priests, like her pastor, are not talking to anyone about this personal crisis. She says “We” the laity are letting it happen. And we need to do something about it.

And in her eyes, keeping people away from the priests is also a way of getting rid of the “good priests”, so, again, something really needs to be done.

She says “we” the laity have yielded to the State when we must demand our right to receive communion, so this cannot be! The laity need to be rallied somehow or we’re gonna lose “eternally” on this one -if we don’t take a stand.

She says we are not risking our lives for Jesus, and this is not the Catholic Faith by any means. This is our opportunity to fight, to stand up for Him, or we will lose Him forever. “We will lose these eternal goods forever”

Her suggested solution:

We the laity need to go and start knocking on rectories, Diocesan Pastoral Centers or wherever Bishops are staying these days, and need to start kindly demanding communion from them saying “Father” or “Dear Bishop, I want communion. This is my God given right”.

Signed,

A voice that cries out in the desert

DOWNLOAD: Petition to US Bishops to demand restoration of Sacraments

FromRome.Info publishes this timely and urgent Letter of Petition to the Catholic Bishops of the USA, demanding the restoration of the Sacraments to the Faithful. At the bottom of this page, you will find this letter in PDF format, which you can download and print out and make copies of to distribute in your area. Catholics in other parts of the world are asked to take similar immediate actions.

by Giuseppe Pellegrino

Your Eminences and Excellencies, Our Bishops,

We are the Catholic faithful. We love you, and we are praying for you during this difficult and momentous time for our nation and the world.

We appreciate your desire to follow all health and safety precautions and cooperate with legitimate government directives during this national emergency.

However, we are dismayed at the announcement in recent days that our ordinary access to the celebration of Mass and the Sacraments has been cut off. This response leaves us feeling abandoned and confused. The Tradition of the Church clearly teaches that the Sacraments and sacramentals of the Church impart not only spiritual protection but also bodily health to the faithful. In this time of pandemic we need the Body and Blood of Christ more than ever as “a lasting remedy for body and soul” (Pastoral Care of the Sick, p. 78). 

The suspension of all public Masses is a denial of the canonical right of the faithful to receive the Sacraments. It is also a violation of our civil First Amendment right to exercise our religion and to peaceably assemble. This has happened before in other historical persecutions of the Church. At the time of Emperor Diocletian, like our own time, “it was forbidden to hold the sacred rites and the most holy assemblies.” At that time a family was arrested in the city of Abitina, and when they were interrogated before the proconsul, Saturninus the priest replied, “We cannot live without the Lord’s Supper.”

Dear bishops, we want to work with you and we want to support you. But we also need you to hear us: “We cannot live without the Lord’s supper.” We appreciate your concern for our bodily health, but we need you to provide for the salvation of our souls now more than ever. We beg you to find creative and courageous ways to grant us our rightful access to the Sacrifice of the Mass and Holy Communion. This is an opportunity for you to restore our trust in you and our confidence in your leadership. Please do not fail in your duty to direct our priests to feed us with the Bread of Life, even at the risk of persecution and condemnation.

In the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,

Signed, The Catholic Faithful:

Virus used to justify Nationalization of Corporations in France

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Globe & Mail and Russia Today are both reporting that the French Minister of Finance, Bruno Le Maire, thinks that the crisis causes by the panic induced by the Main Stream Media and Leftist politicians in response to the Corona Virus — better known as the Wuhan virus — is sufficient justification to the French government to take control of major corporations.

According to the Globe & Mail:

Bruno Le Maire’s remarks are the strongest indication yet that Paris is ready to pull out all the stops to steady the country’s biggest companies amid the turbulence unleashed by the coronavirus pandemic.

“I won’t hesitate to use all means available to protect big French companies,” he said on a conference call with journalists.

“That can be done by recapitalization, that can be done by taking a stake, I can even use the term nationalization if necessary,” Le Maire added, without saying which companies could be treated as a priority.

This is truly a disturbing statement.

But it appears to signal that the globalist elite are confident enough in their control of the psychology of the masses as to begin to implement the form of communism of China, which is the real goal of all this panic mongering, in the opinion of many experts and commentators on media manipulation.

Because, obviously, a few weeks of influenza is no reason to seize the property of major parts of the national economy, unless of course that was the objective in the first place.

This tactic of using panic to seize private property was used by Barrack Obama during the 2008-2012 financial crisis to justify the seizure of General Motors in total violation of every US Law and and constitutional right. In the process, Obama shut down the GM dealers nationwide, since they were one of the biggest funders of political candidates who opposed his party.

Melatonin, a cure for lethal Corona Virus pulmonary inflammation

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Doris Loh in a highly researched article, entitled, COVID-19, Pnemonia & Inflammasomes the Melatonin connection, traces out the scientific evidence of mortality caused by the Corona virus and proposes the cure the worst symptom suffered by those infected.

Please note that neither I nor Mrs. Loh are medical professionals and that nothing we say should be used for medical practice.

But the information she has gathered does indicate a startling simple preventative measure for those infected.

The chief cause death by the Wuhan virus is respiratory failure. That is, a person dies from suffocation. This is cause by the natural ability of the Corona virus to exacerbate or exaggerate the natural response of the human body to become inflamed so as to isolate infection.

This response is caused by inflammasomes, which Nature.com defines thus:

The inflammasome is a multiprotein intracellular complex that detects pathogenic microorganisms and sterile stressors, and that activates the highly pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1b (IL-1b) and IL-18. Inflammasomes also induce a form of cell death termed pyroptosis. Dysregulation of inflammasomes is associated with a number of autoinflammatory syndromes and autoimmune diseases.

Speaking about SARS, which is a corona virus, studies have shows that its lethalness depends in great part on its ability to cause an exaggerated response of inflammasomes in the human body. Doris Loh explains this:

Proinflammatory cytokines defend host cells from invading pathogens, but they are also capable of driving pathological inflammation [46].  During viral infections, inflammation can act in dynamically opposing antiviral and proviral roles. Inflammatory responses can inhibit viral replication and lower infection, but inflammation also has the capacity to release a large number of virions, further disseminating viral infection to cells like macrophages which will spread the virus to various other tissues and organs in the host [46].

SARS-CoV coronaviruses encode viroporin proteins to activate inflammasomes in order to facilitate viral dissemination. The recent discovery of the ORF3a viroporin further deepens understanding as to why SARS-CoV can exert so much damage when infecting hosts. 

Melatonin’s powerful effects on Inflammasome storms

Doris Loh explains that scientific studies have already demonstrated that Melatonin is the organic compound used by the human body to moderate inflammatory responses. She writes:

Melatonin is well known for its chronobiotic effects, regulating biological functions tied to circadian rhythms.  Numerous studies have revealed that melatonin exerts effects beyond the control of circadian oscillators. The NLRP3 inflammasome is now recognized as a target for melatonin! 

The fact that the pro-inflammatory cytokine storm effects are induced by the activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes, the ability of melatonin to INHIBIT NLRP3 inflammasome elevates this powerful molecule to a truly unique position in the fight against COVID-19.  This also means that if a patient, regardless of age, has adequate melatonin, the infectiousness of COVID-19 will be greatly reduced, and the chances of developing ARDS/ALI significantly diminished.  

Melatonin is the reason why children under the age of 9 seldom exhibit severe symptoms. In fact, children may exhibit mild or even no symptoms at all, even though they have been infected by SARS-CoV-2 [73].  How significant is the difference in melatonin production between children, adults and the elderly?

For most people, peak melatonin production is between the hours of 2 am to 3 am.  The maximum melatonin levels measured in healthy adults between the ages of 65 to 70 years appeared to be around 49.3 picograms/ml (pg/ml).  Adults more than 75 years of age only have maximum production levels of 27.8 pg/ml [74].  

Young children, on the other hand, have extremely high melatonin levels, compared to adults.  The maximum levels recorded for children showed a decline as age increased. Children between the ages of 1 to 5 had peak melatonin at 325 pg/ml, while those between the ages of 5 to 11 already declined to 133 pg/ml [76].  

What makes the information presented by Doris Loh so convincing are the extensive citations to reputable sources. Her article contains more than 102 referenced and often linked footnotes.

Conclusion

This conclusion by Doris Loh does not mean that if you are young you cannot survive the Wuhan virus. But it does meant that as soon as anyone above 35 years of age, or who works at night, is infected, he should start receiving daily a dose of at least 1 mg of Melatonin to prevent the exaggerated response of inflammation in his lungs, which the Corona viruses are known to produce.

Melatonin, which is regularly sold in para-pharmacies and pharmacies for those wishing to benefit from its natural properties to aid in sleeping, is an easy solution to one symptom of Corona virus infection. It does not kill the virus, but it gives the body more time to do that job while insuring the lungs remain open to provide the necessary oxygen to the patient.

Why is such a simply solution not being used in hospitals? Because modern medical training does not prepare medical staff to be knowledgeable in how natural compounds, not sold by pharmaceutical companies can aid to cure disease.

Bishops who shut down their Dioceses need to resign or be ejected from their Sees

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Men are consecrated Bishops to sanctify and govern Christ’s flock. Christ Our God made it quite clear that Bishops are instruments of His Will. He taught this when He called them “ministers.”

An instrument which does not work is useless. It is thrown away.

If your Bishop has shut down your diocese, he is also a useless instrument. And you should treat him as such. No priest, no laymen should obey such an order, for a form of flue which has a mortality rate for the whole population infected, much less than the winter flue. It is insanity.

And those who are insane, are not fit to govern.

The Apostles who went on the First Crusade

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The First Crusade was the most glorious military undertaking in the history of Christianity. It was such because it was the first to internationally testify to the faith of the Church in using military forces for a work of mercy: to restore the order of justice, the rights of the Christian Faith, the mercy to persecuted Christians.

It is also a topic which is nearly universally reviled and hated by those who rule the modern world. It is hated by Muslims, because they see it as a defeat and a work which opposed their theological objectives of world conquest. It is hated by unbelieving Jews, who see it as a transgression of their rights to Palestine. It is hated by seculariest, who conquered Catholic nations since the time of the French Revolution, because they fear that Catholics admire any example of Catholics in an age when the Faith ruled the world.

A good number of ignorant or errant clerics also boo-hoo the Crusades. This is one of the reasons for which I personally have no confidence that John Paul II is a Saint, because he “apologized” for the Crusades, which was a complete act of historical revisionism, by a pope who was promoting to the dignity of Cardinal and Bishop numerous pedophiles and pedophile promoters, as we know today.

But the First Crusade was called by Bl. Pope Urban II by an official act of his magisterial authority, which declared it a work of penitence and charity required by our Catholic Faith.

A large number of Archbishops and Bishops, therefore, attended the First Crusade: that is, to say, they went on the First Crusade to offer spiritual, material, political and military assistance. Back in those days, Bishops own their own domains, had their own military forces, even if they personally did not wield sword.

Here is a list of the names of the Bishops who attended, and their titles:

Screenshot_2020-03-17 Bishops_ _Archbishops jpg (JPEG Image, 362 × 440 pixels)

Most of these Bishops are from the Kingdom of France or subjects of the Holy Roman Empire.  At the time of the First Crusade, there was a schism in the Church, and the Kingdom of France remained in loyalty to the true Pope, Urban II, while the anti-pope ruled in Rome.

This is why, for us today, the Archbishops and Bishops of the First Crusade are wonderful examples of what it means to be a true man of God and successor to the Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
