Conscience Protection

Conscience Protection

There is a renewed call for legislation to protect conscience rights in America. This plea is going out via various Catholic movements, apostolates and news sources. A Catholic News Agency article dicusses the urgency here: http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/why-we-need-a-religious-freedom-move-from-trump-and-soon-96103/   Articles, videos and suggestions for becoming informed and acting, a next right step, are at the United States Conference of […]

Peace and Patience

Peace and Patience

As we walk through our personal trials and survey our country and world, we need to steady ourselves in Christ’s Peace. Perhaps easy to say at times. Nevertheless, it is truth. Isn’t it often a matter of choosing? In the ubiquitous chaos, confusion and division of these times, it is good to remember that many have discovered […]

An Apology with Clarification

An Apology with Clarification

The Archdiocese of Denver issued the press release quoted below in response to a column I published on February 7. I regret that I was not fully clear on what I meant. The Rescue which I referenced, the “Process of Rescue,” as having been “fully approved by the Church” was not Charlie Johnston’s prophecy. I was […]

Trust.Do.Love.

Invitations can be rich with possibilities to consider and explore. First, I invite us all to place the prophetic elements of Charlie’s work in a personal place where we let them rest from analysis and parsing. One might discern to cast them completely aside. Another may still believe they will come to pass in God’s ways and time. Either […]

The RESCUE  Has Begun

The RESCUE Has Begun

In recent comments, the topic of all of Charlie’s prophecies continues to be raised. For some, in discernment, there is a belief that the error in the inaugural prophetic piece puts belief in all of his prophecies at risk. Not so fast, please, Fellow Discerners. There is a distinct difference between a failed prophetic element as we […]

Ask and You Shall Receive

Ask and You Shall Receive

How surprised I was to read Anne’s comment last night. She found a book of fiction entitled, Storm and Grace. The very topic I’ve been pondering, from several perspectives, for this post! For more than twenty-five years, I’ve enjoyed the privilege of studying Marian apparitions with some learned, wise ones. In my own reading, I have noticed this […]

All Hands on Deck

All Hands on Deck

Welcome back, Everyone, with prayers for God’s blessings through the intercession of St. John Bosco whose feast we celebrate this day. While thanking God for all the good He has done at this site through Charlie, let us continue making our way through the Storm. Reflecting on the Dream of the Two Pillars, let us faithfully pray the Rosary […]

An Invitation

An Invitation

We have entered a new phase of this journey through the Storm as Charlie, in the epitome of humility and integrity, has stepped from the public view under the terms he had set. A friend succinctly said it best for me: “Was it a Jonah moment? Was it a Joan moment? Was it further deception of the […]

Ave Maria, Stella Maris!

Ave Maria, Stella Maris!

By Charlie Johnston By my own standard, I was wrong about the peaceful transfer of power in the U.S. yesterday.  My favorite note came from a friend who said, “You got close on it, but this isn’t horseshoes.” That encapsulated my own thoughts quite nicely. I rarely speak of specific events. Having done so, it was my […]

Time to Choose

Time to Choose

(By this time tomorrow, we will know whether or not there has been a peaceful transfer of power from Barack Obama to Donald Trump. If there is not, it will be apparent to all but the most obtuse that we have a brutal year ahead and much to confront. If there is, no one can […]

Fake News on Stilts

Fake News on Stilts

By Charlie Johnston The media and political world today are all atwitter over a report from CNN and Buzzfeed that Donald Trump is a Russian agent – and includes salacious details of perverted sex parties Trump supposedly participated in. The establishment media has practically wet itself with enthusiasm over this lurid tale. The only problem is […]

Entering the Danger Zone

Entering the Danger Zone

By Charlie Johnston Over the last few weeks there has been much speculation over the possibility that I might be objectively wrong about the peaceful transfer of power. That is well and proper, since the key to everything is to take the next right step in each moment, whatever happens. People are preparing themselves for […]

Prelude From the Top

Prelude From the Top

By Charlie Johnston Beckita suggested that the piece below, from almost two and a half years ago, is a perfect companion piece to my most recent post, “A Decisive Conundrum.” After re-reading it, I heartily concur. Despite the dust that last piece kicked up, I felt a great relief after finishing and publishing it. I […]

A Decisive Conundrum

A Decisive Conundrum

By Charlie Johnston I have been struggling for a while to figure out how to say something that is very important going forward. When I wrote the piece “All In,” I was pleased with the result. (If you have not read that piece, you need to for this to fully make sense). I was pleased […]

The Heartbeat of America

The Heartbeat of America

By Charlie Johnston I rode a train from Washington, D.C. to Charlottesville, Virginia. I don’t care for buses, but I like Amtrak. Riding a train offers the cozy intimacy of coming in the back door of an old farmhouse you know well. It is kind of like seeing America from the back porch. I am […]

Out of Pocket

Out of Pocket

Sorry friends, I have been out of pocket for a few days. I was busy all Christmas Eve, then on Christmas Day I planned to put something up. Instead, a mighty wind came rushing off the mountains and blew several sections of the wood fence in the back yard out (breaking anchor posts of about […]

The Week Before Christmas

By Charlie Johnston ‘Tis the week before Christmas and I am keeping incredibly busy. I’ve got Christmas cards going out. I really want to get a lot out this year. When I am on the road it is such a frantic rush I end up with hundreds of little bits of paper with names or […]
