El Escorial visionary Amparo Cuevas: the Meaning of the Messages

      We continue with the sixth installment of the apparitions of El Escorial, Spain which began during the same time frame as Betania and Medjugorje and has received little publicity. Yet, like Medjugorje and Betania, El Escorial is still going on and is as important as the others for Our Lady comes as Nuestra Senora de los Dolores - "Our Lady of Sorrows" to call all her children back to her Divine Son Jesus through Prayer, Penance and Sacrifice in atonement for our own sins and those of the entire world. God's chosen messenger to receive these and impart them to the world is a housewife and mother of seven Luz Amparo Cuevas a visionary who has suffered much producing plentiful fruits.

The Apparitions at El Escorial, Spain - Sacrifice leads to Salvation
part six

Come to Jesus in humility and you will be rewarded.

February Flavors that tantalize the tastebuds of the mind and heart as long as you know the time of day no matter what millennium and are compassionate to those innocents whose blood the abortionists clamor to be shed.

      Before our Appeteaser segment goes on hiatus during Lent, we bring you two thought-provoking vignettes today - one on the day the earth and sun stood still and one on a quiz testing your compassion and sense of the Sanctity of Life. Both pose questions that are clearly answered in our final Appeteaser until after Easter. For the vignette Where did the time go? and Would you let them live? click on FEBRUARY FLAVORS TO ENHANCE FOOD FOR THOUGHT APPETEASERS
     Today, in our final Appeteaser feature until after Easter, we present two different segments that provide plenty of food for thought. First, there have been a lot of conflicts in this century between religion and science, so much so that his Holiness Pope John Paul II wrote an entire encyclical entitled Fides et Ratio - "Faith and Reason" proving that science cannot be determined without God. Proof of that is in the following account submitted by NH from her son TH which verifies not only the truths of Sacred Scripture, but the truths that God is in charge in this account of scientific time determined by a team of physicists and astronauts recently. In the second, we ask you not to judge too quickly for the shallow arguments some pro-life politicians and cafeteria Catholics offer up today in making exceptions to certain circumstances for abortion do not hold up in the case of four true cases. It should provide plenty of food for thought. Because of the holy season of Lent, this will be the last appeteaser until Easter as "Appeteasers" takes a hiatus. Have a fruitful, grace-filled Lent.

Where did the time go?

Would you let them live?

" All who dissent do not live the Gospel message, and you who do this are as the Jewish rabble who cried out in their anger: 'Crucify Him!'"

      Those words from the Blessed Virgin Mary in Message #387 deal with those who would cast a dissident voice and slander her beloved pope-son John Paul II who she protects and who has dedicated his pontificate to via Totus Tuus. She imparts that all must be obedient to him and rally around him against those who would degrade him and seek to discredit his words. She reassures all that he speaks the truth in the true Church deigned by God. She follows this up in her message two days later by urging all her children to pray for unity as she imparts to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, reaffirming the urgency of the times and that only through guidance of her Divine Spouse the Holy Spirit can we be assured of finding true refuge in her Divine Son Jesus.

Feast of Saint Scholastica, Virgin and Religious Founder

Thursday, February 11, 1999

Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes


      Today's Prayer is taken from the Preface in the Monastic Supplement to the Roman Missal for the Mass honoring Saint Scholastica:

Father, to clothe Your Church in virginal beauty, You adorned St. Scholastica with the jewels of innocence and made her more acceptable to You with the simplicity of a dove. Sister of our glorious Father St. Benedict, she was also associated with him in sanctity, and under his guidance, seeking You alone above everything else, she produced abundant fruits of grace and has merited to enjoy Your love for all eternity.

January 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

    Dear children! I again invite you to prayer. You have no excuse to work more because nature still lies in deep sleep. Open yourselves in prayer. Renew prayer in your families. Put Holy Scripture in a visible place in your families, read it, reflect on it and learn how God loves His people. His love shows itself also in present times because He sends me to call you upon the path of salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.

" But we speak the wisdom of God, mysterious, hidden, which God foreordained before the world unto our glory, a wisdom which none of the rulers of this world has known; for had they known it, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory."
