The name of the Mother of God Jesus Christ is God Our Lady

It is interesting to read that someone is claiming on Fatimamovement.org that the name of the Mother of God Jesus Christ is “The Lady of the Rosary”. You could fall for it, regarding the recent information that is available. But consider this: God Our Lady has revealed Herself to those She has selected by using terms people were aware of and could understand. How can it be?

First of all, I recommend you to pay attention of what is written on recent books and old books. Please try to read between the lines of everything; probably you haven’t heard of what I’m going to say, but there’s something I will name as “Catholic Logic.” God Our Lady has given us hints about how to distinguish Catholic Religion, and She presents the clues with logic.

Ok, let’s begin with God Our Lady of Guadalupe: when She revealed Herself to Juan Diego, She named Herself as “The Mother of The True God”. She did not use the attribute “Lady of the Rosary” nor the “Lady of the Brown Scapular”. Think about this: She did not offer the Rosary to Juan Diego, nor the Brown Scapular. If She had introduced Herself using those titles, Juan Diego would not had understood. Check it out: She did not say: “I am the The Mother of God”, because She had to be especific; the rest of religions usually say they have deities (actually they are demons or deified people). That’s why She said “I am the Mother of The True God”.

The epithet “The Mother of The True God” was something Juan Diego could understand quickly and the image is a great proof of it: She is teaching us to pray to the Catholic Trinity. I think the Sacraments were valid during that period of time (around 1531); that’s why She asked the people of Mexico (at that time it was called New Spain) to become Catholic through the ordinary way, that is through the sacraments. The people of the 3 Americas had the privilege of receiving an image we could use to Catholize everyone else, but the Enemies of the Catholic Church came up with so many “diverting devotions” that divided the Catholics all around the world.

Keep in mind this: Her name is God Our Lady; for a long long time She has been known as “Our Lady”, not “The Lady”. There are two apparitions, manifestations that are clearly identified with Her Name: Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of Fatima. On others (which almost all of them are heretical) the members of the Vatican Sect uses the terms “Virgin” and “Our Lady” with no distinction, the laity often interpret that “virgin” is a correct term for the Mother of God, but then you realize calling God Our Lady “virgin” is not appropriate. God Our Lady and Virgin Mary are not the same.

The Brown Scapular works as a “reinforcement” of the Sacrament of Baptism. As Mr Nobody once said, it’s a visible mark of Catholicism for the one who wears it. Considering the Brown Scapular as a “sacrament” by itself, can be considered a contradiction of the Catholic Faith given by God Jesus Christ. One thing we must know is that God does not fall on contradiction, if you have the chance to be baptized as Catholic, please do it, and wear the Brown Scapular. Only if you can’t find someone to baptize properly as Catholic, then wear the Brown Scapular as long as you can find someone to baptize you as Catholic. I don’t believe administrating the sacraments to yourself can be effective. If you die and you could not have the chance to be baptized as Catholic, but you wear the Brown Scapular and you kept its requirements, well, God Our Lady will release you from the Purgatory, that’s Her promise and it’s not a contradiction to Catholic Religion.

The requirements for the use of the Brown Scapular (either its origin might come from God, or the clergy, or the laity) were created to preserve our souls and for avoiding sin, they sound convenient and are in line with Catholic Doctrine, and those are:
1) Wear the Brown Scapular all day and all night, so you realize the commitment you have.
2) Keep chastity according to your state (single or married), so you don’t get into trouble.
3) Pray everyday the Rosary 150. The little office and the pentagram rosary are useless.

Now it’s time to talk about God Our Lady of Fatima: when She revealed Herself to the 3 kids, She named Herself as “The Lady of the Rosary.” She did not use “The Lady of the Psalter” because the kids would not had understood; they were familiar with the term “Rosary”. And She did not say “I am Our Lady of the Rosary”, because that sounds akward: “I am Our” does not sounds logic. Remember, languages are not a problem to God. Anyway, the devoted Catholics continue to refer to Her as “Our Lady”, as I said that is Her name. She would not restrict Herself to one of the many epithets we have given to Her.

An interesting fact: God Our Lady introduced Herself as “The Lady of the Rosary” for 2 reasons, which the rest of the world are not full aware of:
1) To make a distinction between Our Lady of the Rosary (that is, Her) and the Virgin of the Rosary (that is, Mary). The Virgin of the Rosary is usually portraited carrying a baby. But the members of the vatican sect don’t pay attention to those details: they produce material invoking “Virgin Mary of Guadalupe”, or “Saint Mary of the Rosary”, and that creates more confusion.

When you say “Our Lady of the Rosary” the vatican followers usually asociate that description with the virgin mary and the pentagram rosary. That’s why I don’t recommend to say “The Lady of the Rosary”. I will repeat this until I die: God Our Lady use the term “Lady of the Rosary” to introduced Herself to the kids. The 3 kids already knew Her name: Our Lady. St Lucia had the opportunity to see by herself the revelation that Our Lady is God on the Apparition of Tuy.

2) In order to promote the keys to recover the Catholic Religion and the Catholic Church through the Rosary we should restore: the Fatima Prayer was the first key, it has to be prayed immediatly after the lord’s prayer. The enemies of the Catholic Church, on the contrary, put that prayer after the glory be, and some of them say it’s optional and don’t pray it at all. For not obeying to God, we had WWII and almost WWIII, which we are avoiding by praying. After all we know now, the phrases “Preach my Psalter” and “Pray the rosary” we realize they refer to the Rosary 150.

Summarizing: The name of the Mother of God Jesus Christ is God Our Lady. Simple and clear. Obviously, nowadays we only have the Conditional Baptism, The Rosary 150 and the Brown Scapular, but we need to recover Catholic Religion so those who are not born yet have a chance to go to Heaven.

El Vaticano reconoce oficialmente al Estado Palestino

St Peter Insignia

“El tratado, finalizado el miércoles pero aún sin firmar, deja en claro que la Santa Sede cambió sus relaciones diplomáticas con la llamada Organización para la Liberación de Palestina (OLP) para dirigirse ahora al “estado de Palestina”.”

“El Vaticano aceptó así la decisión de la Asamblea General de la ONU de 2012 de reconocer el Estado de Palestina. El tratado es, además, el primer documento legal negociado entre la Santa Sede y el estado de Palestina, y constituye un reconocimiento oficial.”
