    Water Island, the Back Door of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Water Island is the smallest of the main US Virgin Islands, and that’s what gives it its charm. Rather than shops and restaurants, it’s the thatched cabanas and lazy vibe of idyllic beaches like Honeymoon Beach that are its main draw. Away from the beach, you can tour the underground tunnels and watchtowers of Fort Segarra, built during WWII. Getting around the island is best by bicycle or golfcart.

    Around 160 people are fortunate enough to live on Water Island, but the volcanic island remains undeveloped.Facilities are limited to a few food outlets, dive shops and charters, a beach bar, fishing operator, & ferry dock. The US Virgin Island’s 4th island, Water Island only joined the group relatively recently, in 1996, and so far it’s kept its low-key atmosphere & local character. A 10-minute ferry ride from Charlotte Amalie, it lies southwest of the capital in the harbor, adjacent to Hassel Island.

    Virgin Islands Campground is an eco-sensitive resort with self-contained cottages set on pristine, 500-acre Water Island, in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Known for its natural charm, Water Island is a secluded getaway that should be at the top of your Caribbean vacation list. Spend a quiet day looking out over the ocean from your cottage’s private terrace. 

    A leisure 5-minute walk to idyllic Honeymoon Beach will have you snorkeling & sunbathing. In need of even more adventure? Visit rugged and secluded Limestone Bay, also just a quick trek down from your cabin.

    Benefits and Services for Veterans of the US Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Veterans of the United States armed forces (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard) may be eligible for a broad range of benefits and services provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Some of these benefits may be utilized while on active duty. These benefits are codified in Title 38 of the United States Code. This booklet contains a summary of these benefits effective Jan. 1, 2013. For additional information, visit www.va.gov.

    General Eligibility: Eligibility for most VA benefits is based upon discharge from active military service under other than dishonorable conditions. Active service means full-time service, other than active duty for training, as a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or as a commissioned officer of the Public Health Service, Environmental Science Services Administration or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or its predecessor, the Coast and Geodetic Survey.

    Dishonorable and bad conduct discharges issued by general courts-martial may bar VA benefits. Veterans in prison must contact VA to determine eligibility. VA benefits will not be provided to any Veteran or dependent wanted for an outstanding felony warrant.

    We invite Virgin Islands veterans to share their stories. Stories connect generations and help our young people learn about the past and maybe choose a military career.

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary Appearing In The Philippines In The 1600's

    in Religion

    One example:

    In the year 1603, in a small barrio of Caysasay, in the town of Taal, a fisherman by the name of
    Juan Maningcad went out fishing and instead of casting his net on the sea, threw it into the nearby
    river, and instead of catching fish, caught a little statue of the Blessed Virgin of the Immaculate
    Conception about six inches high. Although it was soaked in water, it had a heavenly lustre and her
    face twinkled like a star. Upon seeing this marvel, the startled Juan, being a pious and virtuous man
    prostrated himself before the image and began to pray. He picked it up and brought it home. "No
    one knew how the image got to the river, and according to the old folks, perhaps the image was
    thrown by one of the Spaniards to pacify the ravages of the ocean during one of those expeditions
    and somehow the waves pushed it to the river. Another opinion was that perhaps someone exploring
    the river must have inadvertently dropped it. (Some believe it came from China.)
    The news began to spread like lightning until it reached the priest in town, and the judge that
    represented the King of Spain at that time. Without notice they immediately went to Juan
    Maningcad's house and there they saw the beautiful image of the Mother of God. They knelt down
    to venerate it, and took the image to Taal where a town fiesta was celebrated.
    The widow of the Justice of the Peace by the name of Madam Maria Espiritu, was given the task of
    caring for the image. She ordered a precious urn to be made for the image and kept it in her home.
    Every evening she noticed that the urn turned empty and the image gone, but then in the morning it
    would be back in its usual place.

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary Appearing in Las Lajas Columbia South America 1754

    in Religion

    On the borders between Colombia and Ecuador is a beautiful sanctuary, a wonder to its visitors. There is a venerated image of Our Lady of Las Lajas, and thousands and thousands of pilgrims from both countries visit each year and obtain many favors from God.

    Back in the eighteenth century, María Mueses de Quiñones, a local woman from the village of Potosi, Colombia, often walked the six miles between her village and the neighbouring one of Ipiales. One day in 1754 as she was making the journey, she approached the place called Las Lajas (the Rocks), where the trail passes through a deep gorge of the Guaitara River. Maria never liked this part of the trail because there were rumors that a cave in Las Lajas was haunted.  Such superstitions remained among the converted Christian Indians.

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary's Amazing Prophecies For the 20th/21st Century

    in Religion

    In Ecuador in 1611, the Virgin Mary said, “in what is today the Colony and will then be the Republic of Ecuador”, she says, “Satan will reign almost completely by means of the Masonic sects”.

    Consider the time of President Franklin Roosevelt? He was President for four terms, while he was in the White House, he stacked the Supreme Court with his Mason Justices. This is important because with this change came the Court’s ruling of “Separation of Church and State”, that was never part of the America mind set, it was not part of the U.S. Constitution. With the secularization of the Court came decisions that took the Bible out of public schools, took prayer out of schools, brought about Abortion, and now Gay Marriage. How soon we forget the warning of 2 Chronicles 7:19-21.

    “The secular Clergy will leave much to be desired because priests will become careless in their sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches, which they will unduly strive to obtain. How the Church will suffer during this dark night! Lacking a Prelate and Father to guide them with paternal love, gentleness, strength, wisdom and prudence, many priests will lose their spirit, placing their souls in great danger. This will mark the arrival of My hour.” “Therefore, clamor insistently without tiring and weep with bitter tears in the privacy of your heart, imploring your Celestial Father that, for love of the Eucharistic Heart of my Most Holy Son and His of Precious Blood shed with such generosity and the profound bitterness and sufferings of His cruel Passion and Death, He might take pity on His ministers and bring to an end those Ominous times, sending to this Church the Prelate who will restore the spirit of its priests.”
