Pray for Honduras

As forces of evil descend upon the nation of Honduras, let us join Honduran Catholics in our prayer to the Virgin of Suyapa:

Our Lady of Suyapa, bring the peace of your Son upon your land.
Last Friday evening, Cardinal Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga, Archbishop of Tegucigalpa, read the message signed by all eleven Honduran Bishops on the current situation. Excerpts:
To the Organization of American States we ask that it pay attention to all that had been taking place outside the law in Honduras, and not only to what occurred after the past June 28 [date of the removal of the president by the military, following a court order].

The Honduran people wonders why the warmongering threats against our country [by Venezuela and other nations] were not condemned.
If the Inter-American system limits itself to protecting democracy in the ballot boxes, but does follow this by [the observance of] good governance, the prevention of political, economic, and social crises, reacting belatedly to them will serve to nothing.
To the international community, we express the right that we have to define our own destiny, without unilateral pressures of any kind, searching for solutions which promote the welfare of all.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, Lord Jesus tells us. Not as the world giveth, do I give unto you. Let there be in you no anguish, nor fear.

Tegucigalpa, MDC, July 3, 2009.

[Signed by Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga and the other ten Bishops of Honduras]
After reading the full message on Honduran television, the Cardinal added the following personal message:
"An appeal to my friend, José Manuel Zelaya [the deposed President:] on the day on which you took office, you mentioned three commandments of the holy law of God: not lying, not stealing, not killing.

"Let us consider if a precipitate act, a return to the country, at this moment, could initiate a bloodbath.

"I know that you love life, I know that you respect life; up to this day [July 3], there has not been a single death of a single Honduran; please, ponder [this], because afterwards it could be too late."
As Zelaya announces his return, news agencies report tonight two deaths near the Tegucigalpa airport as Leftist groups clash with police forces.

Just as the insatiable American appetite for drugs fuels the Latin American drug pipelines, the American Freemason absolute hatred of Christ is what fuels the corruption in Latin America.
The indigenous in Mexico helped Hernan Cortez defeat the Aztecs who came from 'the north'; Latin America needs another Catholic man to help defeat the evil that comes from 'the north'.
There is much across the internet about the evil that is plagueing the world. Do you really think the average man anywhere wants to live in an evil community?

When we wake up and realize "We have met the enemy, and it is U.S.", then we can start to eliminate those criminals who have hi-jacked our government and begin to make restitution.

As a Latin American, I thank you for your prayers on behalf of all of us whose corruption is the root of so many of our evils.....

Viva Cristo Rey!

Ave Maria, Purissima!

Look, Obama gave harbor to this tyrannical president who strove to established a left-wing tyranny in Honduras. the OAS should have denounced him, not Honduras. Honduras has shown more zeal for liberty than our own government, since the entire people acted to save their country against tyranny.

Whereas in our own country, our Zero furer, who is not even a natural born citizen (see the Supreme Court Case Minor vs. Happert, 1874) was allowed entrance into the White House, unconstitutionally...

Bueno Pablo, Soy Venezolano, so I know all about Latin Americans and Americans (US) and I still stand by my statements...We can blame "insatiable appetites" and many other factors, but it is far and few between my brethren that ever blame themselves...It is ALWAYS someone from outside our own borders.
Ave Maria en el cielo...

Poor Pablo, as long as Ladinos scapegoat the US for all of the problems in the region, things will only get worse. You owe it to yourself to recognize that most of the problems here have nothing to do with the US, or are only exacerbated by the US relationship.

I am here in Guatemala where the problems are nearly as bad as in Honduras, and I can tell you that the US is not responsible for any of the problems which plague this country. Corruption, violence, divorce, secularism; these are evils embraced willingly around the world, and are not forced upon native people by the US. A return to the faith, prayer, sacrifice and discipline are what are needed.

I don't like being called poor pablo in your manner of speaking. I am a man who has been told by his Priest and Confessor that if I continue to stay in the fight, I will lose everything I have and every friend I have. I don't consider that I have lost much. I don't mind being poor that way.

U.S. intervention in Latin America has been going on for years. Here is a letter written by a Marine Corp Major General. No one called him poor or stupid when he wrote it. His statement still stands unchallenged by anyone. At the time he refused to accept the medal of honor for having killed so many Latin Americans.

Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933, by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we'll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

I wouldn't go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its "finger men" to point out enemies, its "muscle men" to destroy enemies, its "brain men" to plan war preparations, and a "Big Boss" Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.

It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

The lists of testimonies goes on and on.

There is a gnosticism growing in the traditionalist movement. If things do not come up to the virtue and intelligentsia of the traditionals, they are ridiculed and discarded. The world only exists in their sanctity.

A wolf in sheeps clothing fools only the man who has chosen to fool himself first.

Pray for our Holy Father, and may God be with you.
