Holy war over church closing April 2008


Latest news here and the impatience of the Archdiocese. And the very latest- an occupation was afoot.

Prayer of St Gertrude


Our Lord dictated the following prayer to St. Gertrude the Great to release 1,000 Souls from Purgatory each time it is said.

"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen."

The Bishops got it wrong

and now they don't even want to talk about it- not in public, at least.
