Why are we missing the obvious Signs of this crucial era leading to the Third Millennium?

     We return with original installments for the fall after a two-month summer retro run of early installments. Today we begin a series on SIGNS OF GOD'S MERCY AND JUSTICE in which we point out the obvious signs God has placed in our path to keep us on the straight and narrow. Sadly too many have overlooked the most obvious ones and in doing so, have detoured off the main path onto their own rough road cluttered with devastating potholes and obstacles.

Installment Seventy-Six

part one:

"A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore, by their fruits you will know them."

Matthew 17: 18-20

"The evil one has seduced the eyes and ears of the world until the conscience of the multitudes sees nothing that would expose the true nature of the evil one's power."

      That is the essence of the Blessed Mother Mary's words in her 189th and 190th messages to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, which we bring you today. Our Lady urges her children to open their hearts to her Divine Son Jesus for only in Him will they be able to decipher between the Light of Christ and the darkness of the devil in a world of glitz and deception.
