Your Brother’s Blood Cries to Me from the Ground

Your Brother’s Blood Cries to Me from the Ground

O let us pray and pray in these days of Choosing as truths, long hidden from clear telling, are being revealed. Those who have had personal experiences or have read extensively concerning the tangled, perverted, appalling web of evil in abortion, and associated with abortion, are aware of the heartwrenching personal devastation, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, of those involved. We know […]

Pelianito Speaks: Flame of Love, Witness of Joy Redux

Pelianito Speaks: Flame of Love, Witness of Joy Redux

(Given the ongoing challenges all around us, as our country seems to be s.l.o.w.l.y. imploding and our world is s.u.f.f.e.r.i.n.g., this beautiful piece by Janet, also known as Pelianito, is as fitting today as it was when it first appeared on this site.) Pelianito Speaks: Flame of Love, Witness of Joy Posted on October 12, 2014 […]

Our Lady of Tepeyac, We Need You

Our Lady of Tepeyac, We Need You

In this time when hearts continue to be revealed and people are choosing, I find the expressed wisdom of Annabelle Hazard to be heartening. As we pray for all who visit here and our families, let us continue seeking graces for the conversion of ALL in this hurting, troubled world.  Our Lady of Tepeyac, Mother […]

Let Us Pray Anew for Pope Francis and Our Church

Let Us Pray Anew for Pope Francis and Our Church

With a heavy heart, I invite us to join anew in prayer for our Holy Father and our Church. Never in the history of the Church has there been a conference focused on the topic of how to depose a heretical pope. On March 17th at Life Site News, it was reported that canon lawyers and theologians […]

A Sign of Hope

A Sign of Hope

(Since I stepped in to continue keeping TNRS site going, I have thought a great deal about Janet’s request made some time ago concerning guidelines for speaking about prophecy here. It will always be important to honor the Archdiocesan statements and, as events of the Storm continue to unfold, it seems only natural, at times, to […]

Mary and the Saints

Mary and the Saints

(As we continue on the Lenten Journey, praying, watching, waiting on the Lord and living our lives as sherpas, I reprint the following article, written by Charlie, for our consideration and contemplation. Even as a cradle Catholic, familiar with these understandings from childhood, I appreciate Charlie’s teaching style and how this article gives witness to […]

The Lady of All Nations

The Lady of All Nations

A movement continues to stir within the Church. For years, it has been welcomed for the hope rooted in its promises and, at the same time, it has been opposed in the face of misunderstanding. As I continue to contemplate what we have been through, where we now find ourselves and where we are headed, the apparitions of […]

Patient Trust

Patient Trust

Patience and trust are steadying virtues to cultivate in these days. A poem shared with Quin Hilyer brings renewed inspiration to trust in God and His ways at work within each of our lives, in this community, in our country and in our world. No matter the circumstances, God is with us, sometimes working perceptibly and, so often, working beyond […]

Be Not Afraid

Be Not Afraid

When pondering how God repeats a certain theme or message in the Scriptures to stress its importance, I found an information gem from an online reference source. The King James version of the bible includes the phrase, “be not afraid,” 29 times. The New American Standard Bible includes, “do not fear,” 57 times and, “do not be afraid,” 46 times. […]

Strangers in a Strange Land Are We

Strangers in a Strange Land Are We

Hat tip to reader and commenter,  Christene, for bringing to our attention a newly released book by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput: Strangers in a Strange Land: Living the Catholic Faith in a Post-Christian World. My copy came this week and, as I have begun reading and contemplating, echoes of voices in our community have rung […]

Renew a Steadfast Spirit within Me

Renew a Steadfast Spirit within Me

As we embark on another Lenten Journey, let us resolve to live Psalm 51 anew: “Have mercy on me, O God; according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy… Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me… The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; […]

Is Peace Possible in Troubled Times?

Is Peace Possible in Troubled Times?

Our world is noisy with anger and division, seemingly everywhere. I try to read and listen to “just enough” news to have a sense of what is occurring in our country and world.  We can see interviews where people nearly rise off their chairs in disagreement, vying for the last, definitive word. I continue to return […]

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 discusses the urgency. Articles, videos and suggestions for becoming informed and acting, a next right step, are at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops […]

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.

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 […]
