    Deepertruth: Eucharistic Miracle of Daroca, Spain, 1239 (7:00 Central)

    in Religion

    The Eucharistic miracle of Daroca was verified shortly before one of the numerous battles sustained by the Spanish against the Moors. The Christian commanders asked the priest in the field to celebrate Mass, but a few minutes after the consecration, an improvised enemy attack obliged the priest to suspend the Mass and hide the consecrated Hosts amid the sacred linens of the celebration. The Spanish left the battle victorious and the commanders asked the priest to communicate the Hosts previously consecrated.  However, they were found completely covered in Blood. Even today, it is possible to venerate the Blood-stained linens.

    In 1239, the Christian cities of Daroca, Teruel and Calatayud (in Aragon) allied themselves to reconquer the walls of the castle of Chio Luchente.  Before the first battle, the chaplain, Don Mateo Martínez of Daroca, celebrated the Holy Mass, during which he consecrated six Hosts designated for Communion for the six captains who led the troops: Don Jiménez Pérez, Don Fernando Sánchez, Don Pedro, Don Raimundo, Don Guillermo and Don Simone Carroz.

    An improvised attack of the enemy obliged the chaplain to immediately suspend the Mass, and coil the six consecrated Hosts in the corporal and to hide them under a rock. The enemy troops had been forced back and the commanders begged the priest to permit them to receive Holy Communion in thanksgiving for the obtained victory. Don Mateo brought them to the place where he had hidden the corporal and they found the Hosts drenched in Blood.

    Deepertruth: Eucharistic Miracle of Cimballa, Spain, 1370 (7:00 P.M Central)

    in Religion

    During the celebration of Holy Mass on Sunday, after having pronounced the words of the consecration, Don Tommaso  saw Blood flowing from the Host which had transformed into flesh; so much that the altar-linens were saturated.


    The penitent priest began to weep from remorse. The faithful, seeing how he was troubled, quickly looked to the altar and saw the miracle. The relic was then taken in procession and the news spread everywhere. There were many miracles attributed to the “Most Holy Doubtful Mystery” and since then has always been a great object of devotion on the part of the faithful. The episode re-enforced the wavering faith of the priest who penitently retired to a monastery, dedicating himself to a life of penance and prayer. Every year on the 12th of September, the memory of the miracle in the parish church is celebrated where, even now, the relic of the corporal soaked in the Blood is kept.


    The relic of the altar linen soaked in the Precious Blood has been exposed on the 12th of September every year; the anniversary of the feast of the miracle of the Precious Blood.

    Modern Babylonians - Feb 28,2014

    in Religion

    Ishtar, Babylonian fertility goddess, which has, since Nimrod and Babylon, been celebrated as Easter (bunny rabbit, Easter eggs). Adopted by Constantine to make the state religion popular with pagans. Wo unto you ye Christians, for the Lord hath seen of your delicacies, your whores, your fine linens, silver and gold and the souls of men. Christianity, therefore, is a pagan religion which is an abomination in the sight of Israel's God and is to be smitten and destroyed by the mighty one of Jacob, for killing the prophets Joseph and Hyrum. The four beasts of Daniel 7, representing the four successive world powers, took the religious rites and ceremonies from each preceding kingdom as it fell, so that Babylonian traditions continued through the ages. Rome, the final kingdom, in the form of modern Christianity, still clings to these pagan traditions today. Feminism, for instance can be traced back to this ancient "mother goddess worship"  of Ishtar or Easter.
