The Vatican’s Dirty Money Problem

A mysterious firing and a new report on the Vatican’s creative bookkeeping begs the question: Why does no one ever get in trouble for laundering money at the Holy See?

ROME—In 2015, the Council of Europe’s financial-evaluation arm Moneyval laid down the law for the Vatican Bank, telling the rather unholy financiers who had been accused of abetting money laundering for years that it isn’t enough to just smoke out suspicious account holders and freeze assets. Instead they said the Vatican Bank, formally known as the Institute for Religious Works, or IOR, needed to start actually prosecuting criminal cases.

Two years later, thousands of accounts have been closed or frozen, but Moneyval still isn’t happy. According to its 209-page December 2017 progress report, the Vatican gets good marks for not funding terrorism and for flagging potential illegal behavior. But the holy bank fails once again to actually hold anyone accountable for what are clearly crimes such as “fraud, including serious tax evasion, misappropriation and corruption,” according to the report.

More curious still, a week before the highly anticipated report was released, the IOR Deputy Director Giulio Mattietti was fired with no advance warning and escorted from his office out of fear he might remove files from his desk.

Mattietti was hired in 2007 by Paolo Cipriani, the former head of the bank who resigned under pressure a few months after Pope Francis was elected in 2013, after a Vatican accountant nicknamed “Monsignor 500” for his penchant for 500-euro notes, was arrested for trying to smuggle $26 million to Switzerland. Mattietti’s removal followed the sacking of a lower-level IOR employee days earlier. The Vatican gives no official reason for either of the firings beyond “reforms,” but a source close to the bank says the bank employees who were let go may have been whistleblowers who were alerting officials outside the bank about continuing impropriety.

In fact, despite apparently precise record keeping on the part of IOR, Moneyval evaluators still found 69 actions involving 38 customers that were not in accordance with money laundering and fraud standards set forth by the Council of Europe. None of those suspect cases were prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law, and instead Moneyval investigators point to vague records that imply that the cases were closed.

“Eight money-laundering investigations have been closed formally without any charges, while six additional investigations have been concluded without an indictment for any offense and their formal closure has been requested,” the report states.

And that is a problem.

California gov: Trump doesn't fear God or 'existential consequences'

December 09, 2017 - 09:49 AM EST


California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump's stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his environmental policies.

"I don't think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed," Brown said in an interview on CBS's "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday.

Brown, who studied to become a Jesuit priest prior to entering politics, has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration.

His latest comments come as the southern portion of California battles massive wildfires that in just a few days have damaged thousands of acres of property and destroyed hundreds of buildings.

Trump declared a state of emergency in California, which permits federal assistance to supplement the state and local response to the fires.

The order allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate disaster relief efforts in the areas affected by the wildfires.

Northern California grappled with a series of wildfires earlier this year that took the lives of 44 people and resulted in billions of dollars of damage.

Trump's Jerusalem declaration sparks talk of 3rd Temple

Israeli activist: 'Words of prophecy are coming forth from the Bible and becoming facts'

WASHINGTON – While Muslims jeer, Israelis cheer President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, prompting Jewish religious activists to suggest building the Third Temple is closer to reality than ever before.

“What he did … was an enormous step in bringing the Temple,” said Asaf Fried, official spokesman for the United Temple Movement, an association of organizations working towards making the Third Temple a reality.

He added, “This necessarily had to come from a non-Jew in order to bring them into the process, so they will be able to take their part in the Temple.”

Fried sees Trump’s role similar to the one played by Cyrus, the Persian king who ended the Babylonian exile and helped build the Second Jewish Temple.

“There have been amazing advances towards bringing the Temple this year. It was clear that Trump was part of that process, guided by Hashem (God),” Fried declared.

He is hardly alone in his jubilation about the possibilities of rebuilding a Temple last destroyed in A.D. 70 – 1,948 years ago.

“The prophets’ words of prophecy are coming forth from the Bible and becoming facts right before our eyes,” said Likud lawmaker and prominent Temple Mount movement figure Yehuda Glick.

The Vatican called pro-choice California Gov. Jerry Brown a leader who defends the “dignity and freedom of each person” in a tweet lauding the governor’s climate change crusade.

Earlier this month Brown patted himself on the back for a two-week European climate change tour that included the Vatican, according to Life Site News. In his Vatican address, Brown spoke of brainwashing people in order to convince them of man-made climate change. Brown called for “…not just a light rinse,” but rather, “We need a total, I might say, ‘brainwashing.’

“Bravo Jerry,” begins the tweet from Casina Pio IV. “…you are a true leader who seeks the good of the people defending the dignity and freedom of each person, and the good of the planet threatened by human activity that uses fossil fuel!”

Danny Vierra's Cancer Journey

Danny Vierra's Cancer Diagnosis

Issue #265
June 16, 2017

I want to be totally candid with you. In January I went to the doctor to have a bleeding mole on my right back flank checked out.


It was the third time the mole had bled. I applied Can-X black salve three different times, and the last application had the most violent reaction. When I showed the area to my doctor, he was alarmed and sent me to a dermatologist, Dr. Ochoa, in Tracy, CA. The area had completely healed before I arrived. Dr. Ochoa performed a punch biopsy and sent it to the lab to be evaluated.

I was driving to Southern California for a speaking engagement when I got the call. Dr. Ochoa said: "Please come see me immediately. In 20 minutes I arrived at her office to hear the news that everybody fears: "You have malignant melanoma.

It is a T-4 and stage 2B (I explain in the video below what these mean)." Dr. Ochoa scheduled a PET scan to check if the deadly skin cancer had metastasized, and then sent me to a melanoma surgeon and a melanoma specialist at Sutter Health Pacific Medical in San Francisco.

The good news was the PET scan showed no evidence that the melanoma had spread. The surgeon, Dr. Stanley Leong, explained the cancer can be microscopic and recommended surgery. He wanted to check lymph nodes it two areas above the primary site which he would remove. Every doctor I trust told me: "Danny, do not mess around with melanoma. It is fast-growing and deadly." Howard Strauss, Charlotte Gerson's son said: "Melanoma is like a volcano, highly active and aggressive, but with the right therapy it can also die fast. I thought of Charles Lawson, a friend of mine, who died not too long ago from melanoma in his sinuses.

I am not going to share what the surgeon found right now, but it wasn't good. I am thankful I had the surgery. I explain the whole story in my new video " My Personal Healing Journey (below)" which you will find both shocking and educational. In fact, I gave four health presentations, three on cancer, at this year's Health and Healing Crusade 2017. The links are below. The audience enjoyed them all, especially the " Cancer Workshop" which I gave on Sunday morning, where I explained everything from ozone rectal insufflations, immunotherapy and medicinal mushrooms, herbal medicines, enzyme therapy, the Gerson Therapy, and more.

My diagnosis is very serious. I count it a blessing because cancer wakes you up to life. So many people are writing, Facebooking, emailing, calling, and offering prayers and support. My spirits are high and Jesus is by my side. We are walking this journey together.

I will continue teaching at our BellaVita 10-Day programs and RISEN our medical missionary school. If you would like to attend the school and learn what I am doing to fight cancer this is the program for you. Check out the details at http://www.modernmanna.org/risen
We only take eleven students. The dates are October 8 - 22 to become certified as a Natural Hygiene Coach and open your own lifestyle home or center.

I want no pity, but empathy is OK. I do ask for your prays. I trust the Lord will be glorified by my healing. The doctor's main concern right now is that there is no recurrence within the next two years. I am strong in faith, trusting God in the journey, and know that my true healing is only through His divine power. I believe the Lord allowed this trial to get me to make some serious changes in my life. To lessen the stress, for sure. Nothing else would have persuaded me to make the needed changes. Healing on all levels, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

My health has continually declined over the past several years due to constant high stress. I have identified the areas of my life that are most stressful and am taking the necessary steps to eliminate them. I will NOT be traveling and speaking for at least one year or more. My health program runs from 6:30 AM to 7 PM seven days a week. It is not easy, but my daughter Mia helps me every day making my organic juices, Gerson soup, specially prepared food, and taking care of other duties.
Enough said for now. I hope you enjoy the cancer videos (below) and share them with others. I will be posting all the Health Crusade videos for my subscribers from the speakers for 2017 including Dr. Tim Riesenberger, Christian Berdahl, and Ron Woolsey, who spoke openly about homosexuality and the power of God to change.
If you would like to send me a letter or comment, email me at danny@modernmanna.org.

Thank you again for your prayers.
God bless you,
Danny Vierra


I found out today 12/9/2017, that Danny Vierra is extremely sick, and a mutual friend of ours asks for prayers so that he may peacefully rest from further suffering.

Please keep Danny Vierra in you prayers.

Thank you.

Vatican Christmas Ritual Exposed (R$E)


Secret Power - Kim Kjaer (245)

Go to Mass on Sunday and on Christmas, bishops say

Denver, Colo., Dec 1, 2017 / 05:00 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- In a newsletter issued earlier this year, the U.S. Catholic bishops addressed questions regarding whether Sunday and Holy Day Mass obligations can be fulfilled with a “two-for-one” Mass attendance at Christmas this year.

In a “relatively rare” situation which last occurred in 2006, Christmas Day this year falls on a Monday.

Because Catholics are obliged to attend Mass for Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, some have asked whether a Sunday evening Mass on Christmas Eve would fulfill both the obligation for a Sunday Mass and the obligation for a Christmas Day Mas

The U.S. Bishop’s Committee on Divine Worship has said the faithful should attend two Masses to fulfill their Sunday and Christmas Mass obligations.

Since the mid-twentieth century, the Church has allowed for Catholics to attend vigil, or anticipated, Masses for Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation as “a convenience for many of the faithful.”

“Most canon lawyers defer to Venerable Pope Pius XII’s Apostolic Constitution Christus Dominus (January 6, 1953), which gave 4:00 p.m. as the earliest time when anticipated Masses may be scheduled,” the bishops said in their 2017 letter.

This means that the Sunday obligation for Dec. 24 can be fulfilled on Sunday, or anytime after 4 p.m. on Dec. 23, and the Christmas Mass obligation can be fulfilled on Monday, anytime after 4 p.m. on Dec. 24.

In the case of two consecutive days of obligation, as at Christmas this year, the “prevailing view of many canon lawyers is that each obligation must be fulfilled with a separate Mass,” the bishops said.

“Thus, when consecutive obligations occur on Saturday-Sunday or Sunday-Monday, the faithful must attend Mass twice to fulfill two separate obligations.”

“Our father which art in the Vatican...” Rewording of “The Lord’s Prayer” would make it “The Pope’s Prayer."

Andrew & Hilari Henriques

By now, most individuals are aware of Pope Francis’ recommendation that the wording of a particular phrase in the “Lord’s Prayer” be changed. Major news media outlets have reported on the matter and it has been widely circulated to the delight of some and the displeasure of others. Fox News reported thus: “Pope Francis has suggested he wants to make a change to The Lord's Prayer, widely known among the faithful as the ‘Our Father.’ Specifically, the Catholic leader said in an interview Wednesday he would prefer to adjust the phrase ‘lead us not into temptation,’ saying that it too strongly suggested that God leads people to sin. ‘That is not a good translation,’ the pope said, according to Reuters. The phrase ‘do not let us fall into temptation,’ which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative, Francis said. He added that the phrase used by the French, or similar wording, should then be implemented around the globe.”1

For individuals even remotely familiar with the history of Roman Catholicism, this is not at all uncharacteristic for the head of the church to make such a recommendation. Additionally, those who have the discernment to see through the deceptive guise that Pope Francis presents, this proposed change is not surprising as he has made plenty of other statements that discredit and cast contempt upon God’s Word, while assuming supreme authority over God’s words. Proposing changes to God’s words and His laws is nothing new for Roman Catholicism; in fact this identifying mark of Popery is delineated in scripture. “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time” Daniel 7:25.

The Roman Catholic Church asserts that it has been given the authority to transfer the solemnity of the Seventh-day Sabbath to the first day of the week. In fact, this act is what the Roman Catholic Church boasts is its mark of authority. Popery was very successful in deceiving the world into believing that Sunday is the day to be honored as the Sabbath; and if she has her way, she desires to, as the above report from Fox News states, implement the new wording of ‘The Lord’s Prayer” around the globe. Daniel 7:25 not only gives one characteristic of Roman Catholicism, but multiple: the speaking of blasphemy, the wearing out or persecution of the saints of the Most High and the thinking to change times and laws. We understand that during the 1260 years of Papal supremacy (or the time and times and the dividing of time) this scripture was fulfilled to the very letter. However, it is being repeated and will culminate when Roman Catholicism reemerges to supremacy and the Mark of the Beast is enacted. Therefore, it is during the time in which the Pope and other papal leaders are blaspheming God, and attempting to change His words, that the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus, will be persecuted.

True Wisdom

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

Why Catholics Should Not Pray to Dead Saints

Why Catholics Should Not Pray to Dead Saints:


Published on Dec 8, 2017

Praying to dead people or any form of communication with the dead is strictly forbidden in the Bible.

This pagan occultic practice is described as NECROMANCY in Scripture.

But if one believes that people become gods, then it is understandable why Catholics see no problem communing with the dead - even believing that these dead people have the power to answer their prayer or communicate with God on their behalf as intercessors.

This is extreme idolatry and blasphemous to say the least.

In LA, massive Marian procession ahead of Guadalupe feast

In LA, massive Marian procession ahead of Guadalupe feast: About 30,000 Catholic faithful walked the streets of Los Angeles in a Sunday Morning procession for Our Lady of Guadalupe nine days ahead of her Dec. 12 feast day.

When the blasts of winter come..

When the testing time shall come, those who have made God's word their rule of life will be revealed. In summer there is no noticeable difference between evergreens and other trees; but when the blasts of winter come, the evergreens remain unchanged, while other trees are stripped of their foliage. So the falsehearted professor may not now be distinguished from the real Christian, but the time is just upon us when the difference will be apparent. Let opposition arise, let bigotry and intolerance again bear sway, let persecution be kindled, and the halfhearted and hypocritical will waver and yield the faith; but the true Christian will stand firm as a rock, his faith stronger, his hope brighter, than in days of prosperity.
