Editor's Comment: I received this email from a fellow parishioner. I've known Angie for years. She has a great love for Jesus Christ, Mother Mary, and our Holy Catholic Church. She also has the unique experience of living under Communism in Cuba when Fidel Castro came to power. To those who think Communism/Socialism is great, you are about to get a rude awakening. It began with Trump being banned by Twitter and now with Parler being deplatformed today. Biden had the gall to call members of Congress Nazis, but the Democrats and their mainstream media and Big Tech lackeys are the ones walking in the footsteps of Joseph Goebbels. May God have mercy on all of us.
“You certainly will not die! God knows well that when you eat of it,
your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods,
who know good and evil.” (Genesis 3:4-5)
My dear family throughout the world in the Most Holy Divine Trinity and the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
In the verses of Sacred Scripture above, we read the FIRST LIE of Satan; which when believed by Adam and Eve, completely changed the course of human history of the Divine Plan of God for man and woman. As Adam and Eve sinned through pride and disobedience to God, the consequence was DEATH...just as God had warned them. From that moment, they lost the fullness of the Divine Life of God in them, and were thrown out of Paradise, where God dwelled with them and they lived in His Divine Will. We, all human beings as their descendants, inherited the same consequences of this Original Sin; thus living as victims of the same astute and seductive temptations of the devil. In his hatred of God and his envy of the human being, created in the Image and Likeness of God, Satan has sought from the beginning to destroy this Divine Image in the souls of man and woman.
Let us then look at what God said to this Evil Serpent after the fall from Grace of Adam and Eve: "I will put enmity between you and the Woman, and between your offspring and Hers; She will strike at your head, while you strike at Her Heel."(Genesis 3:15). This promise of God is the source of our joyful hope; the Divine Certitude that the devil will be defeated and God will be Victorious. In fact, He has already won the Victory over Satan for us; in His Son Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior...the Redeemer of all humanity.
Jesus became Incarnate in the Virgin Womb of a Woman called Mary, Who in holy humility and holy obedience to God, in total abandonment to the Divine Will of God, said YES to His Divine Plan. It is Her FIAT MIHI (Let it be done unto Me) that makes possible the Eternal Salvation of our souls and entrance into the Glory of Heaven. Hence, the Most Blessed Virgin Mary is THE WOMAN that crushes the head of the serpent...the Woman of the Apocalypse (Revelation 12). Jesus is THE NEW ADAM and His Most Holy Mother The Virgin Mary is THE NEW EVE, Who restore the original Divine Plan of God for humanity. We thank God for the Holy Sacrament of BAPTISM, which removes the darkness of Original Sin from our soul and makes us again Children of God, Temples of The Holy Spirit, filled with the Divine Light of His Sanctifying Grace.
So why have I begun this Reflection at the beginning of creation with the reality of the evil plan of Satan and the final fulfillment of the Divine Plan of God...because this is the essence of our life on earth...an unceasing battle between Good and Evil, between God and Satan. Jesus is THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE that leads to HEAVEN...Satan is THE WRONG DIRECTION, THE LIE and THE DEATH that leads to HELL. Satan seeks to keep us away from God by instilling FEAR that paralyzes and enslaves us with ANXIETY; while God is continuously Calling us to Himself, saying BE NOT AFRAID, granting us ALL the necessary Graces to fill us with HIS PEACE. He respects His Gift to us of the free will to choose; thus it is up to us...and we, as individuals, as families and humanity at large, HAVE REJECTED HIM and HIS DIVINE SAVING GRACE. Therefore we now find ourselves in the midst of the necessary PURIFICATION which God, in His Infinite Love, Divine Mercy and Divine Justice, must permit upon humanity, in order to grant us the opportunity to REPENT and RETURN TO HIM....lest our precious immortal souls burn in HELL for all eternity.
This purification began a year ago when God permitted the virus to invade the world; a virus that was no different than many others and even worse plagues in the history of humanity. However, this was His TEST of FAITH for us...to see who would trust and hope in Him remaining in HIS HOLY PEACE; while in a historically unprecedented way, Satan instilled FEAR and CONTROL OF THE MIND, causing PANIC and ANXIETY. Humanity has been indoctrinated and programmed; like robots or puppets. Now, God has allowed the virus to spread and intensify; therefore giving the global governments MORE CONTROL and SLAVERY. From the beginning this has been a DIABOLICAL MASTER PLAN of world wide COMMUNISM to invade THE WHOLE WORLD...as you have heard me say all along throughout this year. The devil, who is the father of lies from the beginning, has been the one directing this plan of attack on souls, through DIVISION in the family and the Catholic Church...keeping everyone away from one another; remember he is THE DIVIDER....and it is through division that he conquers.
As you see from the title of this Spiritual Reflection, dear brothers and sisters, God has inspired me to write specifically and directly about a subject to which I have often referred during the past few months; but now in a more concrete detailed description... ATHEISTIC COMMUNISM IS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! It is a GODLESS DEMONIC SYSTEM, and God has allowed Satan to spread it throughout the world in order to PURIFY and SANCTIFY his children who are lost in sinful lifestyles and risking losing their souls for all eternity. His purpose is to bring us to REPENTANCE. Our Blessed Mother Mary warned us in 1917 in Fatima, that if we did not amend our lives and do as She asked on behalf of Her Son Jesus, Russia would spread her errors throughout the world...and so IT HAS! This is then the fulfillment of this and many other prophetic messages.
I remind you, dear family, that I was born and lived in Cuba when Communism invaded our land in January 1959...62 years ago...and it still remains a Communist Totalitarian Regime today. Marxism, Socialism and Communism are synonyms; products of Freemasonry. I was 10 years old when Castro's Revolution took over in a sudden coup d'etat, and immediately our lives began to change. I have very vivid memories of every moment as of that morning of January 1st, as we awoke to a New Year and a life we could never have imagined!
Throughout the years, many were imprisoned and killed, including priests and religious brothers and sisters. Within the first year to eighteen months, private property and businesses had been confiscated, freedom of speech and the press abolished; and most importantly, the freedom of Religion was taken away, which culminated in the closing of all Catholic institutions, schools and churches, sending the priests and religious out of the country.
I remember vividly that day in school, when the militia invaded all the Catholic schools at gunpoint, and our parents picked us up (thanks be to God unharmed!)...that was the last day we attended school. After the first families had freely left the country, Castro prohibited all travel, which left families with children in turmoil. Communism takes away ALL rights of the individuals and families...this includes PARENTAL RIGHTS over your children. Parents feared losing their children to the authority of the government; as they were already mandating that as of 15 years old, boys and girls had to go into the military and to work manual labor in the fields. Also, we could not be kept safe at home for long, as they would then force us to attend government public schools to be indoctrinated in Atheism...thus losing our Catholic Faith.
In profound prayerful discernment and unwavering faith and trust in God, thousands of parents requested to allow them to send us children to the United States, as unaccompanied minors. Miraculously, the government allowed families to apply for permission to be granted; which meant that while they waited for approval, they were on the "black list", something they risked in selfless sacrificial love for their children. Where evil abides all the more God's Mercy abounds; the Catholic Charities here, formed a network throughout the Catholic Dioceses in the country, asking parish families to receive Cuban children as foster parents, until our parents were allowed to leave. On January 17th, 1962, at the age of 13, I was the oldest of four siblings (our youngest brother was 9), we left Cuba not knowing if we would ever see our parents and relatives again. We were part of over 14,000 children who came under an exodus program that was named "Operation Peter Pan"...not knowing a word of English, when there were no Spanish speaking persons throughout the country, as there are now. Thanks be to God, at the end of that year, our parents were allowed to leave and we were reunited...many of us children never saw their families again.
I have condensed a much longer story with many more details of difficult painful moments for each of us and our families, while still in Cuba and then upon arrival and during our stay here...but suffice it for now, as the purpose was simply to inform you that I know about Socialism/Communism from a personal lived experience. I end now by sharing this moment that our dear elderly mother experienced while here in our home over 12 years ago. It was the Summer of 2008, during the Presidential campaign of Obama; she was sitting watching the news and listening to one of his speeches. As I passed by, I noticed that she was in a state of stupor and asked her what was wrong...then, her response. With tears in her eyes and deep pain in her heart, she said: "I am hearing every word of Fidel Castro again...
if he is elected...WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?" This was certainly an inspired prophetic statement...and the rest, dear brothers and sisters...is history in the making.
Remain in prayerful union with God, filled with FAITH, TRUST and HOPE in His Divine Mercy...for all that He permits, is ALWAYS for the Greater Good of our souls. RESPOND TO HIS GRACE and experience HIS HOLY PEACE. BE NOT AFRAID!
God bless you and Blessed Mother Mary, with Saint Joseph, guard and guide you to Heaven + + +
